The 4 Most Common iPad Problems and How to Solve Them

The 4 Most Common iPad Problems and How to Solve ThemApple Repo, Like any other electronic device, the iPad can present problems when executing some of its functions. Sometimes ipad can freeze, or run an application very slowly, or that the Wi-Fi connection falls, to name a few. Fortunately, there are certain “home remedies” widely used to solve these problems and we will mention below.

It is important to clarify that if it is more serious difficulties, they probably obey defects of the specific device and that in such a case it is better to use the guarantee. On the other hand, it should be remembered that Apple offers excellent online resources, that is, manuals to know how the iPad works, as well as to solve many specific ipad problems. 

Most Common iPad Problems and How to Solve Them

  1. Programs that stop and do not progress

The general advice: restart the iPad (reboot). Although it may sound like the old anecdote of the doctor that to all his patients, regardless of the disease, he prescribed “two aspirins, drink lots of water and rest” and in most cases recovered satisfactorily, with respect to the iPad something happens Similar. Personally every time the iPad freezes -which has happened to me a few times- what I do is restart it (what is known in English as reboot).

When reopening the application normally works properly. Although I am not a computer technician, I understand that it is normal for some applications, especially games, to “freeze” due to imperfections in their design, which are solved in later versions, as they are put to the test.

To restart, simply press and hold the idle / activation button for several seconds until the red “Turn off” slider appears, and then drag the regulator with your finger, from the left side to the right of the screen. Then, you must press the rest / activation button again until the Apple logo appears by the iPhone app development company; after a moment, the iPad will restart automatically.

  1. Access to USB port

It is not a problem of operation, but rather a “deficiency” that in our opinion, Apple should correct in future versions. We still do not understand well why if the other tablet manufacturers include USB ports on their devices, the iPad does not. Fortunately it is possible to make an “arrangement” if we use, for example, the camera connection kit for the iPad (in English), which would also allow us to connect other gadgets, such as a memory stick to increase the memory of the iPad, example.

  1. Low or no connectivity to Wi-Fi

From what we have seen in several forums on the Web, several users complain that the Wi-Fi connection is very weak. Maybe this is because the iPad antenna is located just below the logo of the apple, and this blocks the signal a bit. We can try to solve this problem by reconnecting to wireless networks (on the iPad, in Settings, press Wi-Fi, then select the corresponding network, enter the password again – write slowly and make sure you write it correctly, then they are usually long sequences of numbers and letters).

If the signal does not improve, we have no choice but to bring the iPad closer to the router. The more walls between the router and the iPad, the less clear the signal will be. Another option is to move the router more towards the center of the room where it is or, in extreme cases, buy an external antenna or an extender.

  1. iTunes does not recognize or sync with the iPad

The connection of the iPad with iTunes is indispensable, since it is necessary to download all the applications, for example. It may happen that iTunes does not recognize the iPad, or that you cannot access via Wi-Fi applications or music, for example. To solve these ipad problems, it is best to reinstall iTunes, first, and then check that it is synchronized with the device.

In this case, you will need to connect the iPad to a computer, through the connector that comes with the iPad, to a USB port of the computer (if, eventually, the computer does not recognize the iPad, this can be due to 3 reasons: the battery This is almost unloaded, so you must first recharge it, the USB cable is defective – check it on another device – or the computer’s USB port does not work, in which case just connect the cable to another USB port).

Once the iPad is connected to the computer, click on the Start icon on the computer, then on the Control Panel and then on Add or Remove Programs. With the mouse position tie in iTunes and select Remove (do not worry, just delete the program, not the contents already downloaded).

Then, download the updated version again, going to the following link. Once the new version is reinstalled, to synchronize it with the Wi-Fi of the iPad, from the computer it opens iTunes, select the iPad that you have connected to the computer in the Devices tab and, in the Summary tab, select “synchronize with this iPad via Wi-Fi”.
