iPads can now handle PDFs with ease. However, unlike EPUB, the formatting of PDFs on an iPad can sometimes be off. This is mainly caused by page dimension. In this case, if you want to enhance your reading experience on your iPad, you might need to format your PDF especially for your iPad. In this article, we'll discuss how to format PDF for iPad.

Tips for Fomatting PDF for iPads

To format your PDF for iPad, the first thing is to consider is iPad display dimensions. The dimensions are 1024x768 pixels, which implies, for better reading, images should be close to those dimensions. Otherwise they will be blurry.

Second, consider the actual page dimensions as well, namely the height and width of the PDF page. If it's extremely wide and tall, it will be difficult to fit on the display. Even zooming in or zooming out won't be perfect. And make sure the text is clear enough for the display.

Third, when creating or formatting your PDF for iPad, you must take the resolution of the iPad display, images and page dimensions into account, especially when it's a PDF eBook for iPad.
