I’ve learn in different places that this simplest works with the distance bar, however any key will do the trick. The primary faucet wakes the display screen, and Face ID unlocks the iPad. The second one faucet dismisses the lock display screen.
Faucet to wake

And when you have Face ID enabled, you’ll simply swipe to the house display screen, to the digicam, or to the Nowadays View.

That’s proper — the brand new iPad Professional has sufficient magnets at the again to stay it at the fridge. Watch out despite the fact that. Take away the case, and ensure your refrigerator is a) flat and b) manufactured from a ferrous steel, so the magnets will stick.
Frankly, it is a horrible thought, for the reason that crisis issue is so prime. However I attempted it and it labored.

One great aspect impact of that is that the iPad gained’t move into shutdown mode when you by chance long-press the facility button. This used to occur to me once I put the iPad right into a case the improper method up.
