We love our iPads and have come to depend on them for just about everything. Despite its flashy applications and leading edge technology, Apple’s iPad is similar to a computer and comes with the same problems. Sometimes our trusty iPad applications freeze and it becomes tough to use your iPad. We would call this situation a crash which means your iPad won’t respond to the home button, on/off button or the touchscreen. To fix this problem, you need to reset your iPad. Our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices wrote this brief tutorial to help you get your iPad back in tip top running condition.
How to Reset an iPad
1) The first step in resetting your iPad is to press the home button and the on/off button down at the same time. The home button is the round one at the bottom center of the iPad’s front and the on/off button is located on the top right corner of the iPad.
2) After you hold down the on/off button and home button, you will have one of the two following things happen. First, the screen will flash and go dark, or a red slider will be displayed at the top of your screen. If you see the slider, slide it to the right to turn your iPad off. You also have the option to cancel the reset from this screen.
3) Your iPad has been successfully turned off when the screen is dark.
4) The final step is to restart your iPad by holding down the on/off button. The white Apple symbol will appear and this is when you should stop holding down the on/off button.
Rest assured, resetting your iPad will not usually result in you losing settings or data. Don’t worry too much if you need to reset your iPad from time to time. We all do this on occasion. If you continue to have issues with your iPad after performing the reset, please feel free to contact one of our D.i.D. Doctor of iDevices. We look forward to hearing from you and helping you solve all your iPad needs.
