How to Customize App Icon Size on iPad Home Screen running latest iPadOS

Last Updated on Oct 7, 2021

Though the iPad screen is bigger, Apple has introduced a great feature that allows you to increase and decrease the App icon size on iPadOS 13 or later [iPadOS 15]. So when you change the App icon size on the iPad to Bigger, the iPad will show up to 20 Apps on a single page. As the size of icons gets bigger, you will have to compromise with the number of apps on the home screen/single page. However, after changing the app icon size to bigger, iPad will not show Widget on the Home Screen until you swipe right and bring it on. On choosing the smaller app icon size, iPad’s single page is capable to show up to 30 apps. Also, with the smaller app icon size, the Widget in the Today View appears automatically on the Home Screen of iPadOS. The smaller icon size will drive you crazy and most likely it will create chaos, it will be difficult for you to find any app unless with the help of Search Panel. I would suggest you keep the App icon size on iPad to Bigger and arrange all the apps based on Category or Daily Usage, so conclusively you will be able to find the apps real-quick.

    These do NOT exist! There is nothing below Bold Text—NOTHING! That means there is no way to adjust the size of the app icons, which under 13.2.3 are much much smaller than the previous version.
