    Hi
    Just updated to the new operating system for iPad. Now when I made a FaceTime call that was not answered, I've got a huge dot on my screen saying "recents" and the persons "name" on my screen that I can' t get off and it's driving me nuts. Please could someone tell me how to remove this annoying DOT on my screen.
    Not the best first post I'm afraid but really could do with some help.
    thank you
    Huw

    Where is the dot?

    If it's in the App Switcher view you get when double pressing the Home button, you can turn it off in Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Show In App Switcher.

    If it's in the FaceTime app, just swipe right to left across the name and choose the Delete button that appears. Be careful not to tap it instead, or you'll be making a call.

    The big dot, btw, is a placeholder for that persons picture; which is pulled from the Contacts app if present.
