    For some reason, since I updated to IOS7 on my iPad3, on an intermittent basis the screen will zoom to about 110% without provocation. I lose part of my keyboard and icons beyond the edge of the screen and a hard reboot is required to reset it. Has anyone had this experience and been able to correct it? Thanks.

    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    You haven't turned on the Zoom feature inadvertently? It's activated by tapping the screen twice with 3 fingers, kinda easy to do at times.
    Have a look in Settings - General - Accessibility to see.

    If it's not that, then no, I haven't heard of this happening. Is there any other unusual behaviour, can you still use the screen? Or is it freezing?

    Let us know and we'll see what we can come up with.

    You know, I tried the three finger double tap and sure enough it zoomed the exact amount I was seeing. Obviously I was somehow doing this unintentionally. I appreciate the help as this must have been what was happening. Thanks. :eek:
