How to Auto Whites, Blacks (and other sliders in the Light Panel?

May 16, 2011
Lightroom Version
Operating System
  1. iOS
In LR desktop (Windows) I can press Shift and the word 'Blacks' and/or 'Whites' and so on and I have the option to Auto the setting. I can also press Shift and double click in Classic.
I've done this to the Whites and Blacks sliders since reading Scott Kelby's 7 Point System for Lightroom and it works well for me.
How do I do it in LR for iPad please? I've looked everywhere and not found a way, except pressing global 'Auto' for all 6 sliders and then zeroing Exposure, Contrast, Highlights and Shadows.
Is there another way or can I set a preset? I'm new to LR for iPad (as of yesterday!) so feeling my way around and haven't worked out Presets at all yet. When I do work it out I want to set an import preset for sharpening for my particular camera as well.
Thanks for any advice.

Ah well spotted, there's no auto for single sliders on iPad. You can set a preset for all new photos, that's in preferences
