Common iPad Issues You may Encounter
Frozen Screen: A common issue many users face, you may find that, from time to time, that your iPad screen freezes and is unresponsive to your touch. This problem is likely due to a specific app, but identifying the right one needs trial-and-error. If it consistently happens, you will have to take note of what apps you have running and try uninstalling one at a time to see if the problem could be resolved permanently.
Alternatively, a restart to your device by pressing and holding the power button until you see the “slide to power off” on the screen may solve this. Simply powering it on back, and if the Apple logo appears, it should work as per normal.
If a normal restart does not work, then a force restart may assist you. Simply press and hold the Power button and Home button at the same time for around 10 seconds. For newer iPads without the Home button:
- Press and quickly release the Volume Up button
- Press and quickly release the Volume Down button
- Finally, press and hold the Power Button until the device restarts
If it stubbornly refuses to react to a restart or reset, then you’ll need to try a restore. Plug it into your computer using the cable provided. Load up iTunes on the computer, select your iPad, choose the Summary tab, and hit the Restore iPad button. Do note this will erase your content, so you may prefer to choose Restore Backup on the Summary tab. Bear in mind that you’ll lose anything you haven’t backed up.
iPad won’t turn on: An issue many may face, by simply doing the force restart as per shown earlier, it should solve this problem with ease.
A straightforward reason for this might be simply due to an empty battery. Plugging the iPad onto a power source and let it charge up first before panicking might ensure you do not rush into thinking there is something wrong. Once an hour or so passed, you can try to power it up again and see if it works.
However, if your iPad turns on but gets stuck during startup, then plug it into your computer with iTunes running and repeat step one, except this time, don’t let go of the buttons when you see the Apple logo, keep holding them until you see the recovery mode screen. You should get the option to Restore or Update. Choose Update and it will try to reinstall iOS without wiping your data.
If none of this works, then it may be best to contact a professional to identify the issue, and get to the bottom of it.
iPad won’t charge: If your iPad suddenly won’t charge up even when plugged to a power source, it may create an issue that would make your device unworkable. Testing it when it is plugged into your computer may also signify if its the iPad itself, or the power adapter instead.
You can see whether the USB port on your computer is charging it by looking at the battery icon on the iPad. If charged, a lightning symbol would appear, if not, then Not Charging would be beside it. Although some computers can’t provide the power to charge your device, it is always there even if it is slow, so this is a good indication if your device is the problem or the wire.
Once you are done with that troubleshoot, then you can find an alternate wire or power adapter to ensure you don’t spend too much.
It’s always worth rebooting your iPad to see if that helps.
Some people report success after turning on Airplane mode, so it’s worth a try.
If everything else is working yet your device still does not charge, then it is highly likely that there is a problem with your iPad. Either contact Apple, or bring it to an Apple Store or a third party repair shop as you will need a professional to look over it. It may be due to a damaged battery, or damaged charge port, both of which are easily repairable.
Slow iPad: One of the most infuriating thing you can encounter as a user, when your iPad suddenly decides to run with some lags and not its usual self, it is usually due to having a multitude of apps running at the same time.
First thing is to double-tap the Home button and swipe up on each open app or game to close it. For new iPads without the Home button, simply swipe up from the bottom of the Home screen and pause slightly in the middle to open the recently used apps list.
Sometimes simply resetting the iPad may switch off all your apps currently running, so by following the steps in the first common problem, you can see if there is any other lags after doing so.
Generally, having at least 2GB of free space would ensure smooth operation, so to check how much space is being used, go into Settings > General > iPad Storage and check. To free up some space, you may need to delete some files or uninstall some apps. Worth nothing although at the beginning your apps does not take too much size, it will take space over time, so uninstalling and reinstalling might lessen the size.
Also, clearing your internet cache might quicken the device, so go Settings > Safari and tap Clear History and Website Data, then Clear History and Data to clear it, although it would log you out of websites you have signed into.
As a last resort, you might try a factory reset . This will wipe everything though, so make sure you back up first. If you do a factory reset, test the iPad without restoring a backup just to see if it runs any better. If you subsequently restore a backup and it slows down again, then you’ll know the issue is with something in the backup.
Random Crashing: Another common issue many faced is random crashing where an app spontaneously closes or your iPad suddenly restarts, which especially effects older iPads. Few easy troubleshoots may solve this. It is likely to be related to a specific app, so take note of what you are doing when it crashes and you should notice a pattern.
Firstly, do a restart as explained in the first point. This should reset your device and shut down all unnecessary apps, although it may not fix the problem altogether.
There is also the possibility that your iPad is not updated. Connect to the Wi-Fi and go to Settings > General > Software Update to ensure it has the latest software.
Further, open the App Store and tap Updates and then update all of your apps.
If you start noticing that the crashes are due to Safari specifically, then maybe try going to Settings > Safari and tap Clear History and Website Data, then Clear History and Data. Note that this will log you out of websites that you’re logged into.
If all else fails, doing a factory reset may ensure your iPad stops crashing, though it will delete all your data.
If you’re still having problems then try wiping the iPad with a factory reset and restoring it.
If none of the above has worked for you then try contacting a professional to assist you. If you’re able to reproduce the crash and you can take it into a store to show them, then you will be able to get some help.
Slow Battery Charge: The normal recharge time for your iPad should take around three hours if everything runs as it should. For the older models, the longest it would take is about four hours. Yet, many users report that it takes much longer than that to recharge their iPad fully. Here, there is a couple of easy to do tricks to speed up the charging process.
Firstly, ensure your iPad is updated. Infamously, iPadOS 13 caused these types of battery charging issues. If the issue is with the OS, then nothing can be done until Apple improves the software and releases the new version.
Checking your ports and connectors for any sign of damage, grimes that are blocking the entrance, or anything else that may interrupt the connection may also be the issue. If you are unsure, try finding another charging cable and see if it can return the charge to normal. Note that using an off-brand cable or charger to charge your device may also be an issue! Using the original version from Apple will always ensure the best results.
Make sure your iPad isn’t trying to do a lot when you are charging it. Disconnect from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth or put it into Airplane mode first. Don’t use your iPad when it’s charging, and see how much this helps.
Always remember to make sure that your iPad isn’t put in a particularly hot or cold place. This can damage the battery and cause long-term problems that can’t really be fixed without a full replacement.
Bootloops: This is what we call it when your device gets stuck in a cycle of turning itself on and off for a couple of minutes. This is repetitive and continues in an almost seemingly endless loop. Personally, these cycle annoys most users and it tends to result from a bug in whatever app you were trying to use last. But there are other possible reason for the issue to happen.
An update may be all you need, as it may be caused due to a specific app or your iPad’s current operating system. If that is the case, all you can do is wait for the app or OS update to be released. A recent example of this happened in June 2020, when a version of iPad iOS caused iPads to bootloop unexpectedly while working, usually around a minute or so after starting up. Apple doesn’t waste a second when it comes to releasing patches for these problems. Just keep an eye out for new updates.
As with most issues you might face, by doing a manual restart, it may solve the problem altogether. Follow the method given in the first issue and it may resolve it. If not, then a factory reset is your next best choice. Do note, however, that you back up all your important data before pursuing this course.
Go into recovery mode. This feature prevents bootloops and opens the door for your iPad to fully update if your device is stuck in an infinite bootloop.
