Things you can touch on a touchscreen


Glossary of iPad and iPhone touchscreen buttons from “Explore your iPad – for seniors”. Download as free PDF.

This Glossary starts with brief explanations of the various things you may tap/touch while using an app on an iPhone or iPad. I think of these as “touchscreen buttons”. There are also sections on what you can do with: physical buttons, gestures, the touchscreen keyboard, a stylus and speech.

The Glossary comes from my book “Explore your iPad – for seniors” This is a guide for people who want to explore their iPad for themselves rather than follow detailed instructions.
