How to Reset Settings on Your iPad
Apple recommends a specific progression of actions when something isn't working right on the iPad: restart the iPad, force a problem app to close and reset the iPad. None of these actions deletes the user files on the device.
Locate the "Sleep/Wake" button on the top right edge of the iPad. Press it and the "Home" button centered under the display simultaneously.
Hold the buttons down for at least 10 seconds. The Apple logo will appear on the screen. Release the buttons.
Click the "Settings" icon on the main screen of the iPad. Tap "General" from the left column of settings.
Scroll to the bottom of the screen and tap on "Reset."
Tap on the "Reset All Settings" button at the top of the screen. Your files and data are not affected by the reset.
Tips & Warnings
- If problems persist, move to the next recommended troubleshooting step: restoring the iPad to its original settings using iCloud or iTunes.
