Restarting an iPad can often help you solve issues with the device and it should be your first mode of action when you face troubles with your iPad. Restarting is a simple troubleshooting step and it should not be confused with a hard reset of the device. When you find that your iPad is stuck, you can restart the device by following the steps discussed below.
The basic kind of restart will not delete any of the data or setting stored in the device. The steps to restart the device are explained below.
The above-mentioned steps are for restarting your Apple iPad, but the standard restart may not always work to resolve your issue. In such situations, you may try hard reset.
You may also use hard reset when the device is locked up so much that the slider does not appear on the screen or when the device does not respond to taps and touches at all. Performing a hard reset of the device will clear out the memory used by the operating system and the apps installed in it, but all the data stored in the device will be safe. The steps to perform hard reset are explained below.
