Change Home Click Speed on Your iPad

If you have dexterity challenges, performing some tasks on your iPad might be a bit difficult. For example, it's hard for some people to double-press or triple-press the Home button fast enough to make your iPad register the clicks and take action. Fortunately, your iPad allows you to control this.

Choose the Slow or Slowest setting for your Home Click Speed to to allow you a bit more time to make that second or third tap. To make this change, follow these steps:

  1. Tap Settings→General→Accessibility.

  2. Scroll down, and tap Home Click Speed.

  3. Tap the Slow or Slowest setting to change how rapidly you have to double-press or triple-press the Home button to initiate an action.

If you have certain adaptive accessories, you can use head gestures to control your iPad, highlighting features in sequence and then selecting one. Use the Switch Control feature in the Accessibility Settings screen to turn this mode on and configure settings.
