    i have received an update to 8.1.2 or something, the last up date that came out. I have an I pad mini, my wife has a generation 2 I believe. We both did the updates at the same time. Hers restored back, she can use her email. She is unable to do anything else.

    I have on my I pad or what came back after rebooting, is what looks to be a blown up screen of my home page, all out of focus. When I try to scan it shows a giant slide indicator to turn on, when I aggressively make the motion to slide to the right the big key nos show up but cam
    N,t seem to enter the code there

    After an update it is a good idea to do a reset. Hold down the power and home buttons until the Apple logo appears. The devices should reboot.

    It sounds like you've put your iPad into the accessibility Zoom mode. The reset should take it back out. A double tap with three fingers will usually take you back out as well. You can look at the Zoom feature and gestures involved in Settings > General > Accessibility > Zoom. You can also turn it off there.

    Hi Hayseed - I agree w/ TP - just updated 3 iDevices the last few days from iOS 8.1.1. to 8.1.2 using cabled iTunes; after the updates, I unplugged from the computer(s) and always do a 'Reset' as described - had no problem w/ any of these devices (nor in the past) - good luck and let us know if this maneuver helps. Dave :)

    I did the hard boot thing. Did not work. My wife,s I pad worked, but I still have giant screen.
    I was able to navigate to settings, but do not know what to do there to fix problem.

    When I try to move screen to the circled nos. it does not want to stay centered and I have to fight to get there. Oh. Am going to try again.

    Sort of makes you mad when you can do nothing and mess things up, and 200 to straighten it out.
    I was able to get the screen down to size by scrolling like crazy to the left then a black box showed up, this box only showed up for no where near a second, the fist you see the box the next time I saw the zoom out and zoom in prompt. Can,t work the stupid cursor in this window to fix mistakes. Any way after practice I was able to hit the right zoom out prompt and things went back to normal. What a great update that was.

    Well, first let's make sure that you did the 'Reset' properly - hold down both the ON/OFF & the HOME buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears (may take 10 seconds or so), then release and wait for a reboot - if that does not cure you problem, then please post back - you may need to restore (hope that you did a backup to the cloud and/or to iTunes cabled to a computer before your attempt to update?) - Dave :)

    Hmm. It sounds less likely that you are in Zoom mode.

    If you are in Zoom mode you should be able to drag the screen around with three fingers. Tap-hold-drag will change the zoom level. A double tap should with three fingers should zoom/unzoom.

    Depending on your Accessibility Shortcut settings you can also turn Zoom on/off by tripple clicking the Home button.

    The reason I'm starting to doubt it's about zoom mode is that the iPad should have rebooted in normal view.

    When you updated the iPads did you update from a previous version of iOS 8, or from something earlier like iOS 7 or 6?
