Chapter 6. Customizing the Home Screen

The Home screen displays icons that represent all the apps available on your iPad. Since you’ll be staring at the Home screen all the time, you may want to customize its appearance by rearranging icons on the screen, moving them off (or on) to additional panes, or just deleting certain apps altogether.

In addition, the Home screen lets you choose a background image as your wallpaper. You can choose one of the photographs that Apple provides or use any of your own pictures that you’ve loaded on your iPad.
