    Hi. My 5S running iOS 8.0.1 is stuck in zoom mode. Even after multiple reboots, it remains stuck zoomed in. How can I fix this?? Thanks.

    Try tapping the screen with three fingers at the same time that should get you out of zoom mode

    Also I recommend you update to iOS 8.0.2 as soon as possible because iOS 8.0.1 is a corrupted version

    Thanks for the response. I did mean to write 8.0.2. Anyway, tapping with two fingers is not working - it doesn't do anything that I can tell when tapping with two fingers.

    Got it sorted. I had to double tap with three fingers. I'm now adjusting the zoom features (Settings/General/Accessibility/Zoom).

    Thanks so much. Took a while but it worked with 3 fingers, tapped 3 times. After 3 attempts it worked!

    1. double tap the iPad's display with three fingers
    2. push home button three times
    3. turn off zoom on accessibility shorcut

    I also found it helpful to review all of the accessibility functions. There were other things turned on that might have surprised me in the future.
