Owning an iPad is wonderful until it starts giving you trouble. Though they’re designed to be as reliable as possible, sooner or later every iPad will run into some sort of problem.
Luckily, most of these problems are pretty easy to fix on your own. In this article, we’ll go over some of the most common iPad problems and how to fix them.
First, let’s look at some of the most common iPad problems you might run into:
- Your iPad is running slowly or acting buggy. There are a few things that could cause this – but in most cases, it’s caused by an app not properly closing out after you finish using it. Try force quitting all your open apps (double-tap the home button and swipe up on each app preview), then restart your iPad. This should take care of the problem.
- You can’t connect to the internet, or your connection is very slow. This could be due to a number of different factors – but in most cases, it’s simply because you’re not in range of a good Wi-Fi signal. Move closer to your router or try resetting your network settings (go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings).
- Your iPad’s battery is draining too quickly. This is usually caused by having too many apps running in the background. To fix it, go to Settings -> General -> Background App Refresh and turn it off for any apps that you don’t need to be running in the background.
- You can’t update your iPad to the latest iOS version. This is usually due to a problem with your internet connection. Make sure you’re connected to a good Wi-Fi signal, then try updating again. If that doesn’t work, you may need to reset your network settings.
- Your iPad is running too hot or feels unusually warm to the touch. In most cases, this means that there’s something wrong with one of your apps and it’s causing the iPad to overheat. Restarting your iPad should fix this problem – and if it doesn’t, try force-quitting your open apps.
- Your iPad’s screen is frozen and you can’t do anything. In most cases, this just means that an app has crashed and is causing the iPad to freeze up. Force quitting the app should fix the problem. If it doesn’t, you may need to restart your iPad.
- You can’t delete an app from your iPad. This is usually because the app is corrupted and is not working properly. To fix it, try deleting the app from your iTunes Library, then re-downloading it from the App Store.
- Your iPad won’t turn on or charge. If your iPad won’t turn on or charge, it means that the battery is probably damaged. You’ll need to replace the battery in order to fix this problem.
As you can see, most of these problems are fairly easy to fix on your own – and as long as you’re prepared for them, you should be able to quickly get your iPad back up and running. If your iPad has problems that these solutions can’t fix, however, you may need to take it to an Apple Store or authorized repair shop. There are shops or service centers that offer iPad repair in Draper and other areas.
