One of the most common iPad issues is a frozen screen. Usually, this is due to too many apps running at once. First, try restarting your iPad by holding down the power button to fix this issue.
If that doesn’t work, you can try resetting your iPad by holding the power and home buttons together for ten seconds. Don’t forget to back up your data before trying this fix.
Not Connecting to WiFi
If your iPad doesn’t connect to WiFi, ensure that the WiFi is turned on in the iPad settings. Next, make sure your iPad is in range of your WiFi router. If it is, then try restarting your iPad and your router.
If that doesn’t work, you can try fixing your iPad by resetting your network settings.
- Go to settings
- Click WiFi
- Find the network name and click the I button on the far right.
- Click “Forget This Network”
- Restart your iPad
- Try reconnecting to the network again
Your iPad isn’t Charging
If your iPad doesn’t charge, it may be due to a problem with the lightning connector or the charging port. Follow these steps to troubleshoot the issue.
Inspect the lightning connector for any damage. If you see any damage, try using a different lightning cable.
If the connector appears to be okay, try resetting the iPad. Press and hold the sleep/wake button and the home button for ten seconds until you see the Apple logo appear.
If the iPad still doesn’t charge, it may be due to a problem with the charging port. Inspect the port for any debris or damage. If you see any, clean it out with a soft, dry cloth or use a can of compressed air to blow it out.
If the port looks clean and undamaged, try resetting the iPad again. If the iPad still doesn’t charge, you may need to have it serviced.
If you shatter your iPad screen, you’re going to need to get a new one. Repairing an iPad screen is not something you should do yourself. If you break your screen, bring it to an Apple Store or certified repair center for an iPad screen replacement.
