    hi...
    My IPad zooms in and out of its own and in this process opens random app or mails or does stuff as is normally done by touch.
    also the app icons seem to "shake " during the time this things happens..
    once i turn off & restart then it stops zooming or sometimes without turning off it stops..
    i checked in accessibility zoom is off...

    pls help me out!!

    Welcome to iPF!

    Also check Accessibility Shortcut in Settings - General - Accessibility. If Zoom is chosen there, your iPad will use this feature as soon as you triple tap the Home button.

    Maybe resetting your device will help. To reset, press and hold Home and Power button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo. Let go of both afterwards. Your iPad will power up on it's own.
    This reset won't remove data or change settings.

    Hope that helps.

    Accessibility Shortcut is here:

    And when you tap it, it should look like this:

    Zoom shouldn't be checkmarked.

    Yeah it's already off....

    Although the zoom isn't there now,, the "random" movements persist...such as typing on its own and opening apps of its own..

    Did you also try resetting it:
    Press and hold Home and Power button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears. Let go of both, it will power up on it's own.

    This won't remove data or change settings. It might help getting rid of some of the glitches you're experiencing.

    Try restoring and see if this helps.

    Backup your device to iTunes or iCloud. Connect the iPad to iTunes (computer) and restore it. You'll be able to restore from a backup afterwards.

    Reset it again afterwards.

    Do I have to factory reset after completing backup ...and then restoring back?

    And does backup cover all data.
