iPad Crash Recovery Help And Tips

Saturday, December 29th 2012. | iPad

An iPad crashes for different reasons. Sometimes, it’s not even the iPad itself, but more of a problem with a crashing app/or apps for that matter. In any case iPad crashes could basically be solved by three main solutions, so fret no more because here they are.

However, if your problems are on crashing apps, then you’re on the wrong page. A separate article is specifically written for crashing apps, which can be viewed here.

So let’s move on to the solutions shall we?

iPadSolution #1: A soft restart.

Remember the basics? Yes, sometimes a simple restart does the trick. Let’s face it, our gadgets make mistakes and get tired too so sometimes all they need is a little nudge, or a soft restart. You can do this by pushing down your Sleep/Wake button until the “Slide to power off” appears, and when it does, do what it says to turn it off. You could just easily turn it back on by pushing the Sleep/Wake button again.

If your device still hasn’t recovered or the problem you’re currently encountering is not over yet, then maybe a hard restart will suffice?

Solution #2: A Hard restart.

This could be done by pushing the Home button together with the Sleep/Wake button for about 10 seconds and until you see the Apple logo disappear. You could turn it on again by pushing the Sleep/Wake button for the same period of time, and wait for it to load.

Your problem should be already okay by now, but if it’s still not, then maybe a restore should do the trick, which moves us on to the next solution.

Solution #3: Restore it.

So before you do anything you need to back up your files first. How? Just plug in your device to iTunes, right click and select Back up. Once it’s finished, right click again and select Restore from Back up. Wait for the whole process to finish. Once it has done its thing, then your iPad should be working as new already.

In any case the first part of this solution is advised to be done regularly, which is ‘back-up’ing. Never forget to always back up your files. Whenever you have already accumulated a decent amount of data or downloads then plug it on your iTunes so the files would be backed up, and in the future that your iPad gets weird again, you’re secured that you won’t start from scratch. Also, if you think you have lost some of the apps you have already downloaded then you can download them again. Even if they are paid, the iTunes and the App Store have recorded your downloading details, so they know that you have already paid for the said apps and you can easily redownload them for free.

Finally, as already mentioned, there are a lot of different reasons why your iPad may crash. Sometimes it does because of connectivity. Sometimes certain apps just crash because of memory, or network connectivity; and some just crash unexpectedly for weird reasons like font weight or no reason at all.
