How to freeze iPad screen?

As an iPad user, there may be times when you want to freeze your iPad screen. Freezing the screen can be useful for a variety of reasons, such as preventing accidental taps or swipes during a presentation or keeping a specific app on the screen without the risk of it closing accidentally. So, how can you freeze your iPad screen?

Here are the steps you can follow to freeze your iPad screen:

  1. Open the control center by swiping up from the bottom of your iPad.
  2. Tap on the "Lock Orientation" button to lock your iPad screen in portrait or landscape mode.
  3. If you want to freeze your screen in a specific app, open the app and then use the previous step to lock the orientation.
  4. To freeze the screen completely and prevent any interaction, enable Guided Access. Go to "Settings" > "Accessibility" > "Guided Access," and toggle the switch to "On."
  5. Press the home button three times quickly to activate Guided Access. Use this feature to circle any areas on the screen that you want to disable, and then press "Start" to freeze the screen.
  6. When you want to unfreeze your iPad screen, press the home button three times again and then enter your passcode to exit Guided Access.

While these steps can help you freeze your iPad screen, it's important to note that this isn't a security feature. Anyone who knows your passcode can easily unfreeze your screen, and if your screen is locked in Guided Access, the person can simply turn off your iPad to gain access. Hence, this feature is mainly designed to control access to your device during specific instances.

In conclusion, having the ability to freeze your iPad screen can be helpful in several situations. Follow the steps above to freeze your screen and use Guided Access to control specific areas of the screen. Remember to use this feature wisely and not solely as a security measure.
