Due to the new iOS settings on the iPad, it is sometimes hard to reach the control center buttons.

An option is to turn on Assistive Touch on your iPad. This allows you to pull up the control center screen very easily by creating a second on-screen Home button. To do so, please go to Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch, then turn on AssistiveTouch, or simply tell Siri to "Turn on Assistive Touch."
