How To Reset a Frozen iPad [tutorial]

It doesn’t happen a lot, but on occasion, your iPad will freeze. Either an app will lock up, or your iPad will stop responding and just leave you stuck on a black screen. Don’t get alarmed just yet. Chances are your iPad just needs a restart.

When your iPad freezes, here’s how to reset it:

01) Press & Hold Both the Home and Power Buttons for 10 Seconds

Press and hold both the Home button and the Power/Standby button at the same time for 10-15 seconds or until you see your iPad’s screen turn off.

03) Turn Your iPad On

Turn on the iPad by pressing and holding the Power/Standby button until the gray Apple logo appears. That’s it. Your iPad should boot up normally and be as good as new.

If this procedure fails to reboot your iPad, then your iPad’s battery may be dead. Try connecting your iPad to an AC outlet or an external charging device like the ZAGGsparq to charge for 20-30 minutes. Don’t plug your iPad into your computer to charge using a USB cable. Plugging you iPad into your computer will not provide the same amount of power as an electrical wall outlet.
