Got a frozen or hung iPad? Wanna reboot your new iPad or restart the iPad? Have difficulty with forcing quit a frozen iPad app? Here are the solutions:
Part 1: What to Do When iPad Frozen
Restart iPad once you get a frozen iPad or iPad app: Go to the top of your iPad, and then hold the suspend button (also known as the Sleep/Wake button), slide your finger across the red arrow on the screen to power off your newiPad, then hold the suspend button on the top of the device again to turn your iPad back on.
Still having problems? Or iPad doesn’t respond when you follow the instruction above to power off the device? Then you can try this: reset iPad. Similar with rebooting iPad, you need to press and hold the buttons of suspend and home at the same time, until you see the Apple logo.
And if you have to force quit an iPad application, you can also hold the iPad’s suspend button until a red slider appears, after that, hold Home button until the iPad application quits.
Well, none of these methods above is helpful? Try to reset your iPad settings then: go to Settings -> tap on General -> choose Reset -> tap on Reset All Settings.
Failed again? Erasing all contents on your iPad might be the last solution here. Before you do so, backup iPad first. But you can’t sync your iPad items back to iTunes or computer (PC or Mac), so you need a helpful program like iTransfer for Mac. These two programs enable you to easily transfer songs, movies, TV shows, playlist, photos etc. between Mac/iTunes and iOS devices including iPad (take back up iPad on Mac for example)
- Download iTransfer and launch it;
- Connect your iPad to Mac;
- Click the "Copy Music to iTunes" or "Export Music to Mac", and this program will copy the music to your Mac or iTunes. Note that it will only copy the missing items without any duplicate contents. And you can go to the "Videos" and "Photos" menu to select all the videos and photos you want, and then export them to your Mac or iTunes library.
- Unplug your iPad from Mac and erase the iPad contents;
- Reconnect iPad to Mac and open iTunes;
- Click the Summary tab on the interface of iTunes;
- Click “Check for Update.”
- Choose Restore. Then you can follow the instructions to finish the restore task. Or you can use your iPad as a new one and sync files to the device. (You can do this via iTunes, and the iTransfer mentioned above also can help you accomplish this.)
