Your iPad may be the finest device you’ve ever used, a masterpiece of fine engineering, but that doesn’t mean it won’t have its share of problems. The good news is that many of these problems have very simple fixes, sometimes as simple as doing a basic restart.
Just make sure you keep the hardware of your device well protected with an iPad Pro case, an iPad mini 6 case or whatever case is most appropriate for you! A shattered screen is not an easy DIY fix. A sluggish iPad, one that won’t turn on or a device that continually freezes can often be remedied at home, however. Here’s a rundown of the most common iPad problems and how to fix them.
You’ve got to the point where you rely on your iPad for many of your daily tasks— and then, one morning, when you go to turn it on, it just won’t. You try to think of what could have happened—- is the battery completely drained, or did something happen last night after you went to bed?
Your iPad brand new out of the box was a speedy little device, but over time it may have slowed down. How do you get it back to its former glory? Here are a few solutions:
Your wifi is what connects you to the world, and it usually works so smoothy you almost forget it exists— until it doesn’t. Sometimes the problem may be with your iPad, sometimes it may be with your internet services provider.
If your iPad still can’t connect to wifi after a restart, it’s time to troubleshoot your wifi by checking if the connection works on another device. If it doesn’t, you may need to contact your internet service provider. But if it does, try an update of the iPadOS— sometimes a old operating system causes problems with internet connectivity.
You’re right in the middle of something intense— and then, suddenly, your iPad screen freezes. A frozen screen usually signifies a problem with an app, not the iPad itself, but you may need to address it on a iPad level.
That sliver of battery power is all that keeps your responsive, vibrant iPad from being a lifeless brick, and not being able to charge it up can be a fast track to frustration.
Is your problem not on this list? No matter what the issue may be, there’s one thing you’ll want to try before bringing it in to a service person: turn it off and turn it on.
Simple though it may seem, this simple action is enough to clear away a lion’s share of iPad problems and get your device working optimally again. If that doesn’t work, do a hard restart and check again. To do this, press volume up, volume down, and then press and hold the power button.
There will always be moments when your iPad doesn’t quite work as you might wish, but with this knowledge under your belt you can be your own hero and fix all of your iPad’s most common problems.
