    Hey everyone.

    My sleep wake button randomly broken and now I'm using assistive touch to mac my iPad go to sleep.

    The problem is that the dot always stays on even though I know the dot is at the bottom right of the keyboard. . I don't want this to burn into the screen.

    Is there a way to make it invisible? Does anyone know if that feature could be available in beta's of the new OS?

    Thanks for any help.

    Unless you're leaving your screen on for days at a time you should have nothing to worry about.

    I wouldn't begin to worry about burn-in issues unless you're leaving your phone's screen on for periods of a day or longer. If you're still worried, can't you change its location around?

    you could set a triple tap of the home button to dismiss and activate assistive touch. you could just triple tap when you need it
