Brett’s iTip: Reduce the space between app icons on your iPad (well, Apple calls this “Use Large Icons” but I like thinking about it in the inverse). With iPadOS 15 you can now go to Settings - Home Screen & Dock - and toggle on “Use Large Icons” which smoothly increases the size of your app icons and app folders. Switch back and forth to see which mode you like best.

Jeff’s iTip: Quick Action Menus on Apps. Instead of tapping on an app icon to open the app and then looking for the right place to tap to do what you want with the app, hold your finger down on the app icon to see the Quick Action Menu for that app. Some of my favorites:
Messages - Quick link to start texting with three specific favorite people
Photos - Favorites, One Year Ago, Search
Music - Play Most Recent
Notes - New Note
Calendar - New Event
