    Hi, I did something stupid last night and fell asleep on my ipad...!!!
    I woke up with a huge IPAD home screen (don't laugh)
    I'm pretty ofey with the ipad I know how to lock the orientation and can work my way around most things but this has stumped me... I have searched the forum and can't find the problem. I have done a hard reset but i still get a really huge home screen.
    I can navigate my way around the home screen.. everything is still there but really gigantic.
    I have managed to sync and everything works fine... I bet it's something really simple but it is really bugging me... please help!!

    You have activated the Zoom feature by accident. You can double-tap onto the screen with three fingers, than use the pinch and reverse-pinch gesture to zoom further out or in.

    Otherwise, if you would like to deactivate the Zoom completely, you can go to Settings->General->Accessibility->Zoom and turn the slider to Off.
