Learn how to use zoom on your iPad Air. Many apps let you zoom in or out on specific items.

For example, you can double-tap or pinch to expand webpage columns in Safari.

But, theres also a Zooms feature that lets you magnify the entire screen, no matter what youre doing. And, you can use it together with VoiceOver.

  • Turn Zoom on or off.
    • Go to Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom. Or use the Accessibility Shortcutsee Accessibility Shortcut.
  • Zoom in or out.
    • Double-tap the screen with three fingers.
  • Vary the magnification.
    • With three fingers, tap and drag up or down.
    • The tap-and-drag gesture is similar to a double-tap, except you dont lift your fingers on the second tapinstead, drag your fingers on the screen.
    • Once you start dragging, you can drag with a single finger. iPad returns to the adjusted magnification when you zooms out and in again using the three-finger double-tap.
  • Pan around the screen.
    • While zoomed in, drag the screen with three fingers. Once you start dragging, you can continue with just one finger. Or, hold a single finger near the edge of the screen to pan to that side.
    • Move your finger closer to the edge to pan more quickly. When you open a new screen, Zooms goes to the top-middle of the screen.
