iPad Tip: How to Turn Your iPad into a Picture Frame to Display Photos

A Blooming Slideshow
If you’ve saved any photos to your iPad, you will see an option on the unlock screen to start a slideshow. The symbol is a little framed flower (bottom right) that indicates “Picture Frame.” Your iPad is, among many other things, a digital picture frame. Just touch the flower symbol and the slideshow will start. Your iPad stays safely locked while using the Picture Frame option. To access the Picture Frame options, go to Settings and select “Picture Frame.” From here you can choose effects and which photo collection to display.
