Question

Can you help with the correct page size to use for the iPad in app InDesign > new document (Picas and Points or cms) I found the iPhone size using google, however having difficulty finding the size of the iPad.

Answer

  • 768 x 1024 pixels
  • 768 x 1024 points
  • 768 x 1024 pica
  • 27.09 x 36.12 cm

Don’t forget to swap the values if you are wanting horizontal measurements. (:

Question

What is the correct resolution for iPad wallpapers?

Because the iPad can rotate so you use it vertically or horizontally, you have to make your wallpapers square. Your wallpaper won’t resize, it just re-crops the image . When searching or making your wallpapers, you want to find images that are 1024 x 1024. Then make sure they will look good at both 768 x 1024 and 1024 x 768.
