Adjust touch settings on iPad
If you have trouble using the touchscreen or buttons, you can change how iPad responds to your touch.
Use touch accommodations
Go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Touch Accommodations.
You can configure iPad to do any of the following:
Respond to touches of a certain duration: Turn on Hold Duration, then tap or to adjust the duration (the default is 0.10 seconds).
To perform swipe gestures without waiting for the specified hold duration, tap Swipe Gestures, then turn on Swipe Gestures. You can choose the amount of required movement before a swipe gesture begins.
Ignore multiple touches: Turn on Ignore Repeat, then tap or to adjust the amount of time allowed between multiple touches. Then, if you touch the screen several times quickly, iPad treats the touches as one.
Respond to the first or last place you touch: Choose Use Initial Touch Location or Use Final Touch Location.
If you choose Use Initial Touch Location, iPad uses the location of your first tap—when you tap an app on the Home screen, for example. If you choose Use Final Touch Location, iPad registers the tap where you lift your finger. iPad responds to a tap when you lift your finger within a certain period of time. Tap or to adjust the timing. Your device can respond to other gestures, such as drags, if you wait longer than the gesture delay.
Turn off Shake to Undo
If you tend to shake iPad by accident, go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch, then turn off Shake to Undo.
Route audio calls
You can automatically route the audio of phone or FaceTime calls to your headphones, speaker, or hearing devices.
Go to Settings > Accessibility > Touch > Call Audio Routing.
Choose an audio destination for calls.
To have iPad answer calls automatically, tap Auto-Answer Calls, turn on Auto-Answer Calls, then tap or to set the duration of time before the call is answered.
During a call, you can switch the audio routing from your hearing aid to the iPad speaker by removing the hearing aid from your ear. See Use hearing devices with iPad.
