iPad Screen with Its Knickers in a Twist

jacked up iPad home screen

My iPad had a little moment of madness yesterday.  A moment where one home screen in landscape view only showed four columns of icons (as opposed to the five it normally displays) and decided to ‘hide’ the remaining app icons down below the dock, where they were unreachable of course.

It got back to normal after a quick flip to portrait orientation and back – but it was odd to see it get confused like that.  I wonder if it’s a lack of memory issue, as I’ve not rebooted it in quite a long while and have been pounding it with some high-powered games.  Then again, it did snap straight out of it and it has not re-occurred since.

Any of you seen it do this?  Or similar issues?

  1. I had the exact same thing happen to me yesterday. It had been a week since my reboot so I powered off and once back on all was well.

  2. be sure to file an official bug report (or "feedback") to Apple about this, along with the screenshot!
