While iPads are incredible electronic devices, like other electronics, it’s common for these products to run into issues. Fortunately, some iPad issues are easier to fix than others. With that in mind, we’re going to take a closer look at several of the most common iPad problems. We’ll also show you how to fix these problems.


Sometimes, there will be iPad problems that won’t be as easy to resolve. During these times, it’s best to have help from a professional. Considering that, we’ve also added a section about how to find professionals who can repair electronics on Trade-In Tech.


1. A Frozen Screen


One of the most common iPad problems is a frozen screen. If you’re like most people, this problem happens when you least expect it. This problem can cause anyone to start feeling stressed that their iPad is no longer usable.


Fortunately, you don’t have to worry every time your iPad’s screen freezes. Because this issue is so common, there are a few possible ways to solve this problem. The next time you’re dealing with a frozen iPad screen, try these potential solutions:


Check for problematic apps: As you’ll begin to learn, apps can sometimes cause problems that affect your iPad. Fortunately, deleting these apps should cause any problems they’re causing to go away. If you’re unsure which app or apps are causing a frozen screen, try force closing all open apps. Next, open each of them and interact with them. During this time, it should be fairly easy to detect which apps are causing problems.


Restart your iPad: Sometimes, frozen screens are simply the result of an error you can resolve by restarting your iPad. To do this, you’ll need to press and hold your iPad’s “Power” button. Hold this button down until you see the “slide to power off” message appear. Next, slide the on-screen tab to power off your iPad. Finally, press and hold the “Power” button again, and you should see the Apple logo appear. Next, your iPad should begin restarting.


Perform a force restart: If the previous steps haven’t resolved your frozen screen issue, it’s time to force restart your iPad. To do this, you’ll need to press and hold your iPad’s power button for ten seconds. You can confirm you’ve performed this step correctly when the Apple logo appears on your iPad’s screen.


Note: Newer iPads no longer have the “Home” button. To perform a force restart on this device, you’ll need to press and release the “Volume Up” button and then do the same thing to the “Volume Down” button, and then press and hold your iPad’s “Power” button until you see the Apple logo appear.


2. Not Connecting to Wi-Fi



Understandably, being able to access wireless internet or wi-fi has many advantages. Most people rely on wi-fi to access the internet on an iPad as well as play many games stored on these devices. So, it can be a major problem when you notice that your iPad isn’t connecting to the internet. Here are some things to try that can resolve this problem.


Enable Wi-Fi in Settings: Sometimes, an iPad not making a wi-fi connection is easy to resolve and can get changed by accessing your device’s “Settings” menu. Once you’re there, find a tab that says “Wi-Fi.” After tapping on this tab, you should see an option to turn Wi-fi on or off. If your device has wi-fi turned off, switch it on. If wi-fi is already enabled, try one of the other solutions below.


Turn Your iPad Off and Back On: Sometimes, a lost wireless internet connection can happen for a wide range of bizarre reasons. If you’re still having problems connecting to wi-fi, try turning your iPad off and turning it back on again.


Forget the Connection; Restart iPad: Another way to resolve this issue is by going to your iPad’s “Settings” menu. Next, go to the “Connections” option until you find the wireless network you’re trying to connect to. Find the option to “Forget This Network,” which will reset your connection. Keep in mind that you’ll need to have this network’s password to reconnect. Once you’re reconnected, power off your iPad and turn it back on.


3. iPad Isn’t Charging


Considering the popularity of iPads, there’s no doubt that many of these devices are in near-constant use. As any iPad owner knows, every one of these devices depends on batteries that will need to get recharged. In most cases, recharging an iPad is as simple as connecting it to a USB cord and maybe a wall charger. 


If your iPad isn’t charging properly or slowly, try these potential solutions:


Use Official Apple Chargers and Adapters: One of the most common reasons why iPads fail to charge is because of the cable and/or adapter that’s providing this device with power. While they’re typically more expensive, official Apple charging cables, docks, power adapters, and other accessories are all made for use with its products. 


Sometimes, using non-Apple charging cables and adapters can provide an iPad with less or more power than it needs. If your iPad isn’t getting enough power, it will charge extremely slowly. If your charging cable or adapter provides too much power, it could cause damage to your iPad’s battery.


Replace Your Charging Cable and Adapter: Another potential problem is that your iPad’s charging cables and adapters are damaged. You can test your adapters and cables if you have multiple iPads (preferably one without charging issues). If your original charging components charge the other iPad, it could be a problem with your iPad itself. If your original charger doesn’t charge another iPad, you have a charger that needs replacing.


Restart Your Device: If the previous steps don’t resolve your charging issue, try to turn your iPad off and on. In some cases, restarting your iPad can solve the problem of an iPad that won’t charge.


4. No Power



Another common problem that certain iPad owners encounter is having a device that won’t power on. This problem can make your iPad essentially useless. Therefore, it’s important to fix this issue as soon as possible. If this should happen, try one of the following solutions:


Try Charging Your iPad: One of the first steps to potentially resolving an iPad that won’t power on is by charging it. Sometimes, it’s easy to lose track of time while using your iPad. When this happens, your device can run out of power faster than you sometimes realize. If you can’t turn on your iPad, it’s time to grab a charging cable and connect it to your iPad.


Hold Down Your iPad’s Power and Home Buttons: As you might imagine, rebooting your iPad can be a great way to resolve this issue. As mentioned earlier, you might own a newer iPad that doesn’t feature a “Home” button. If this is the case, you’ll need to press and quickly release the “Volume Up” button followed by the “Volume Down” button. After that, press and hold the “Power” button.


Perform a Reboot Through iTunes: Another tip that some iPad owners aren’t aware of is how to reboot this device through iTunes. If your iPad’s screen isn’t turning on, connect your device to a computer with a USB cable. After this, reboot your iPad, and you should be given an option to update your iPad. If all goes well, this update through iTunes can reinstall iOS without completely resetting your device and removing all of its data.


5. A Problematic App


Part of the fun that comes with using an iPad is being able to download and interact with a wide range of apps or applications. However, not every app is all that it claims to be. While it might sound like a small problem, problematic apps can cause major problems for an iPad. 


In some cases, it only takes one app to cause frozen screens and a wide range of other iPad problems that need repairing. If you either suspect or know that an app is making your iPad behave strangely, there are a few things you can do.


Find the Problematic App: It’s hard to stop the havoc that a problematic app can wreak without knowing which one is causing all of your problems. Fortunately, it should be fairly easy to understand the few apps that are negatively affecting your iPad. You can do this by thinking about when your device started experiencing problems. In most cases, these kinds of apps will be new, from a non-trusted source/company, or both.


Delete the App: Once you have a basic idea of what app or apps could be causing your iPad to perform improperly, it’s time to delete them. Before you start doing this, it’s wise to have your login information for any deleted apps set aside. By doing this, you won’t have to worry about creating new accounts on any apps you reinstall. You’ll know you’re on the right track if you notice any improvements in how your iPad performs after deleting an app.


6. iPad Won’t Update



Over time, Apple regularly releases updates for its products. These updates can help improve how an iPad operates, improve its security, and resolve other important matters. Unfortunately, you can run into situations when your iPad isn’t properly updating. If this happens, try one or all these solutions to resolve the problem of an iPad that won’t update.


Check the Strength of Your Internet Connection: It’s possible that your iPad isn’t updating because of a weak or non-existent internet connection. To fix this problem, go to your iPad’s “Settings” program and check if you’re connected to the internet. 


Free Up Storage Space: Sometimes, an iPad won’t update because the device doesn’t have enough space. To complete certain updates, you might need gigabytes of free space. This space might be readily available after you purchase your iPad. However, over time, iPads can quickly run out of storage space. Fortunately, this issue is fairly self-explanatory to solve.


Unable to Check for Update: Lastly, it’s also possible that you run into a message stating that Apple is unable to check for an update. The best way to potentially remedy this problem is by updating your iPad on a computer. If this doesn’t work, try removing the update and reinstalling it.


7. iPad Turns On Then Shuts Down


There’s almost nothing more frustrating than having an iPad that turns on but won’t stay on. If you can’t keep your iPad on for more than a few minutes or seconds, it can make you feel like your iPad is beyond repair. Before you give up on repairing your iPad, try these steps below:


Perform a Force Restart: As you can imagine, force restarts can potentially solve lots of problems. One of these problems is an iPad that is turning off by itself. If you’re using an older iPad, you’ll hold down the “Home” and “Power” buttons. For newer iPads, quickly press and let go of the “Volume Up” and “Volume Down” buttons respectively, followed by pressing and releasing the “Power” button.


Restore Your iPad: Another way to solve this problem is by restoring your iPad. In some cases, restoring your iPad will take care of issues that a restart won’t be able to. Before doing this, it’s a good idea to remove any images, videos, or other information you don’t want to risk losing.


Contact a Repair Professional: If neither of the previous methods worked to fix an iPad that powers on and off constantly, it’s time to contact a repair professional. This allows you to have someone take care of your issue. Find the right repair person or electronics recycler, and you’ll soon have iPads that work properly.


8. An iPad That Won’t Connect to iTunes


You might also need to connect your iPad to iTunes. This program is Apple’s way of helping you manage what’s on your iPad. When everything’s working properly, your iPad should have no problem connecting to iTunes. Unfortunately, as you might know, this doesn’t always happen. If you’re having trouble connecting to iTunes, try these tips:


Ensure Your Computer is Connected to the Internet: Sometimes, iTunes-related errors can happen because of your computer’s internet connection and not your iPad. If iTunes isn’t starting, make sure your computer is connected to the internet. You can do this by trying to access your favorite website. If your website doesn’t load properly or at all, you’re likely dealing with an internet connection issue.


Update Your iPad: If you’re connected to the internet and still unable to access iTunes, it’s time to consider updating your iPad’s software. You can find the latest iOS version for your iPad on Apple’s official website. After letting your iPad update, try to connect it to iTunes.


Double-Check Your iPad’s Time and Date: Every iPad depends on an internal clock. This clock allows an iPad to display the correct time and date. However, for several reasons, you might find that your iPad is no longer set to the correct date and time zone. If this happens, it can impair your iPad’s ability to properly connect to iTunes.


Here are the steps you’ll need to follow to fix this problem:


  • Open the “Settings” app

  • Select “General”

  • Choose “Date & Time”


From there, you’ll only need to adjust your iPad’s date and time settings with the correct ones for your location.


9. Fast Draining Battery



Something that many electronic owners struggle with is a battery that drains quickly. When you have new electronics, it’s easy to enjoy using these devices for a long time. However, after continued use and charges, the original battery in an iPad will begin to drain quicker in between charges.


Most iPads contain batteries that work for about 10 hours before needing a recharge. However, using apps that require more power can lower this amount of time. The main sign of a problem with your iPad’s battery becomes noticeable when it drains while you’re not using your iPad.


Check the Health of Your iPad: Fortunately, Apple continues to improve how easy it is for people to use and maintain their iPads. One way this company does this is by letting you check your iPad’s battery health. To do this, complete the following steps:


  1. Go to the iPad’s “Settings” menu. 

  2. Tap the “Battery” section. 

  3. Go to “Battery Settings.”

  4. Select the “Show Detailed Usage” option.

  5. Tap the “Last 7 Days” option.


If you completed these steps correctly, you’ll see a list of what usage patterns or apps are causing your iPad’s battery to drain quickly. By resolving these issues, you should soon start noticing that your iPad’s battery lasts longer.


Consider Replacing Your iPad’s Battery: Sometimes, built-in battery life extenders won’t help a battery that’s received a lot of use. If this is the case, your best bet would likely be to replace the battery inside of your iPad. However, it’s important to note that replacing an iPad’s internal battery is not a task that everyone will want or be able to do.


If you’re interested in replacing your iPad’s battery, you’re going to need a few specialized tools or a toolkit for repairing iPads. It’s also worth noting that it’s possible for an inexperienced repair person to wind up damaging an iPad instead of replacing its battery.


Contact an iPad Repair Professional: If replacing your iPad’s battery isn’t an option, it’s now time to contact a professional. An iPad repair professional should be able to diagnose and solve any issues impairing your iPad’s battery life.


Find Out About Your iPad’s Warranty: When you’re considering replacing your iPad’s battery, it’s understandable to assume that you’re on your own. However, this isn’t always the case. If your iPad is under an AppleCare warranty, you can get your iPad’s battery replaced for free. All you need to do is bring your iPad to a nearby Apple store.


10. Damaged iPad Screen

Something that no iPad owner wants to see is a damaged screen on this device. A damaged screen can make an iPad hard to use. It can also potentially make performing basic functions on an iPad quite painful on your fingers!


With this type of repair, there’s only one true solution if you’re unable to fix a broken iPad screen. At this point, your solution is to contact a professional iPad repair person. You might be able to find what you’re looking for by searching locally. However, to find the repair professional you need right away, there is a more simple solution.


Should I Repair iPads by Myself or Contact A Professional?



After learning about the most common types of iPad problems, it’s understandable to wonder if you should repair these devices yourself or have someone take care of these situations. The truth is that there are both advantages and disadvantages of either option. 


To give you a better understanding of which option to choose, here’s more information about repairing electronics or hiring a repair professional.


When It’s Best to Repair Electronics Yourself


The main way to determine if you’re ready to start repairing electronics comes down to how comfortable you are with this type of work. If you’re new to repairing electronics, be prepared for more than a few moments of frustration. 


Another factor to consider is how much money your company has to spend. You can avoid the expenses associated with hiring an electronics repair person if you do it yourself. However, you’ll also need to spend some money to buy test electronic devices to practice your skills on.

When You Should Contact a Professional

Now, let’s learn more about why it could be better for your business to have a professional repair this company’s iPads. The first thing to think about is how much money your company has for this expense. 


If you have a little room in your company’s budget, hiring an electronics repair person can be a smart move. On the other hand, this wouldn’t be the best move if your company is strapped for cash.


Another factor to consider is how much spare time you have. Running a business is something that takes a lot of time to accomplish. With that in mind, you might soon find your days filled with business-related tasks to take care of. If this is the case, you’re unlikely to have the time it takes to repair electronics. This would make hiring a repair professional a wise decision.
