Where is autoplay in settings on IPAD?

Answered by Frank Schwing

To disable autoplay videos on your iPad, follow these steps:

1. Open the Settings app on your iPad.
2. Scroll down and tap on “Privacy & Security” or “Settings & Privacy” (depending on your iPad version).
3. Tap on “Settings” from the menu options.
4. Scroll down again and you should see a section called “Media” or “Media and Contacts.” Tap on it.

Now, you have entered the media settings section where you can manage the autoplay settings for videos on your iPad.

5. Look for the option that says “Autoplay Videos” and tap on it.
6. In the autoplay videos settings, you will see different options like “On Mobile Data and Wi-Fi,” “On Wi-Fi Only,” and “Never Autoplay Videos.” Select “Never Autoplay Videos” to completely disable autoplay.

If you only want to disable sound for autoplay videos while keeping the videos themselves playing automatically, you can do that too.

7. Look for the option that says “Videos Start with Sound” and toggle it off.

By following these steps, you can effectively disable autoplay videos on your iPad and even control whether they start with sound or not.

It’s worth mentioning that disabling autoplay videos can help conserve your data usage, improve battery life, and create a more peaceful browsing experience. Autoplay videos can be particularly annoying when you’re trying to read an article or browse a website.

I personally find this feature very helpful as it allows me to have more control over what I watch and listen to while using my iPad. It’s quite frustrating when videos start playing automatically, especially when you are in a public place or trying to concentrate on something else.

Remember, these settings are specific to the iPad and may vary slightly depending on the iOS version you are using. However, the general steps should remain the same.

I hope this detailed explanation helps you locate the autoplay settings on your iPad and disable it according to your preferences.
