Install iPadOS 13 Beta for the New Volume HUD
Here is a small, but useful change that might convince you to try the iPadOS 13 beta today.
Apple's iPadOS 13 update comes with an all-new, redesigned volume HUD that's far and away better than the experience on iOS 12.
On iOS 12, the volume HUD is ugly and intrusive. It can get in the way of content and gaming and its needed an overhaul for many years.
If you're running iPadOS 13, the volume control now appears in the upper‑left corner of the screen so it doesn't block the content on your screen.
You can get a feel for it in the photo from the iOS 13 beta right here.
