There’s no doubt that Apple makes some of the best smartphones, tablets, and computers that we’ve seen in recent years.
However, no matter how advanced their tech is, Apple is not immune to a few issues and glitches.
If you own an iPad, you might be one of the many users that are experiencing several common iPad problems right now. Issues like frozen screens, frequent crashing, and slow charging (or not at all) can be a bit of a drag in your workflow.
But don’t worry, these issues on the iPad are often resolvable with a little tinkering on the iPad itself or the settings.
Below are some of the quick and easy solutions for the iPad glitches that nag you every now and then.
Problem #1: iPad won’t turn on
The simplest reason why your iPad won’t turn on is that the battery could just be dead and needs to be plugged in for a few minutes. However, as much as we hate to say it, it’s sometimes a lot more complicated than that.
It could be a software issue or the battery is dead for good and just awaiting replacement.
Possible Fix: Force reset your iPad
There’s a chance that your iPad’s software crashed, making it look like it’s turned off, when in fact,
it’s turned on the whole time!
To fix this, force-restart your iPad by pressing and holding both the Home button and the power button.
Then hold until the Apple logo appears on the screen. And your iPad should turn on and work just fine.
If you own a newer iPad with no Home button, here’s what you can do:
1. Press and quickly release the volume up button
2. Press and release the volume down button
3. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button.
4. Wait for the Apple logo to appear, and then it should work flawlessly.
But don’t celebrate yet! If the hard reset worked on your iPad, that means it was really a software crash that caused the problem. This also means that your iPad is living on borrowed time.
Backup your iPad using iCloud immediately, look for iPad repairs near your area and tap in for expert help.
Problem #2: iPad keeps crashing
There are several reasons why your iPad is acting up and shuts itself down:
● Drained battery
● Outdated iOS
● Bugs on the recent iOS update
● iPad memory full
● iPad is too old for your new apps
While we recommend seeking expert help when it comes to crash issues, there are several steps that you can do at home to see why your iPad keeps on crashing and, hopefully, fix the problem.
Reboot your iPad
Whenever you have a tech problem, it can be unclear what causes the issues, at least at first. The best thing that you could do is to reboot your iPad.
Consider yourself lucky if your iPad works like normal again after the reboot. If not, try a hard restart and follow the steps that we listed earlier.
If that still doesn’t work, buckle up as the problem could be serious. Try some of these fixes below.
Charge your iPad
This is just to confirm that low battery is not the reason why your device is acting up.
