So you’ve got an Apple iPad Pro and are experiencing some issues with the device. Take comfort in the fact that you are not alone. Millions of iPad Pro users around the world have the same concern. And because the Apple iPad Pro line is Apple’s best line of iPads to date, Square Repair has prepared for you some tips to help you address your Apple iPad Pro issues. Regardless of your iPad model, how to fix your iPad is understandably your chief concern. Read on and learn more.
What to do When iPad Stops Working?
There are only two major reasons that could cause your iPad to fail. It is either a software crash or a hardware malfunction. In whichever case, it is always important to address the issues by going through the correct process. The first thing to determine is whether or not the cause of your iPad’s malfunction is a software crash or a hardware issue. If it is then the following would be the steps to consider. These steps will also help you determine whether or not to schedule a visit to an apple store or to contact apple support or service provider will be necessary.
When your iPad is Physically Damaged
Poor maintenance, bad storage practices, heat and high temperatures, and careless handling may cause physical damage to your iPad Pro device and may seriously affect your battery service. When your iPad also gets punctured or crushed or comes in contact with liquid, serious damage may also be possible. However, all iPad models like all other devices are susceptible to time’s wear and tear. If you suspect damage to the iPad or the battery, or if your iPad has screen damage, discontinue the use of the iPad, as it may cause overheating or injury. Don't use an iPad with a cracked screen, as it may cause injury.
Remember though that accidental damage to your device is not covered by an Apple warranty. Screen damage or any complications with your battery that may be traced to accidental mishandling may cause you more problems. How much will it cost you has to be determined immediately. And remember that, usually, accidental damage isn't covered by any warranty. Check if your warranty doesn't cover the battery in your iPad and what else is covered by your apple store.
Dropping your iPad can cause damage in a number of ways that could affect its performance or prevent it from turning on completely. Physical damage to your iPad can affect its internal wirings. If the screen is cracked, you can get it repaired in 30 minutes with our screen repair service. We can also run a diagnosis on your iPad to assess any internal damage.
Again, it is always important to remember to either contact apple support, talk to an apple support advisor, make an appointment, or schedule a visit at an apple store and check what your apple limited warranty covers.
Reset The Device
The very first thing is to troubleshoot a possible software crash by doing a Hard Reset. Make sure that your iPad is charged. Next, simultaneously press both the Home button and Power Button until the Apple logo appears on the screen. This should take about fifteen seconds but you may hold or press the buttons longer should you just want to make sure that you are doing the right thing. Always make sure that the apple logo is visible on your screen all the time. Check your WIFI connection too.
Having your iPad restored is one thing while preventing future software crashes is another. To prevent a possible software crash on your iPad, simply reset All Settings first on your iPad. This is a non-invasive software fix that resets everything in the Setting App without touching or affecting any of your personal information. Follows this simple procedure:
Open Settings App, then tap General. Scroll down and tap Reset and proceed by tapping Reset All Settings. Finally, enter your Passcode to confirm. Your iPad should restart and your settings will have been restored and you will never have to do a hard rest ever again.
However, if that still did not work and the problem still has something to do with the software, then a DFU Restore is in order. The Device Firmware Update is the deepest type of restore you can do for your iPad and is considered to be the last ditch effort. Basically, the DFU reloads the software and the firmware of your device. When you DFU restore your iPhone, your computer erases and reloads every bit of code that controls the software and hardware on your iPad. Be prepared, however, for something to potentially go wrong. If your iPad is damaged in any way, especially if it's water-damaged, a DFU restore may break your iPhone. Sometimes, in cases like this, a battery replacement may be necessary. Always make sure to test your iPad after every hard reset
How to do a DFU (Device Firmware Update) Restore
To do a DFU Restore, first, make sure to plug in your iPad to a computer running iTunes. Then press down the Home and Power buttons at the same time. Count one to three then quickly release the Power Button while still pressing down on the Home button. Wait until you will see a pop-up on the computer that says iTunes detects and iPad is in recovery mode. The recovery mode screen is then activated. Remember that you must first restore the iPad before it can be used with iTunes. Open iTunes. Tap the Restore and Update button and that will automatically download the latest version of iOS and load it into your iPad, finally, your DFU restore is complete.

You can use Siri on your iPad to give commands and ask questions. Remember that Siri only works when it is enabled. You can turn Siri on and configure its behavior in the iPad's Settings app. Once enabled, you can start Siri by saying "Hey Siri," or pressing and holding the iPad's Home or Power button, depending on your device.
Siri responds to the iPad users' verbally-asked questions by speaking back to them through the device's speaker and presenting relevant information on the home screen from certain apps, such as Web Search or Calendar.
Here are the simple steps to set up Siri and help it recognize your voice on your iPad device:
Go to Settings.
1. Tap Siri & Search.
2. Turn off Listen for "Hey Siri," then turn it back on.
3. When the Set Up "Hey Siri" screen appears, tap Continue
4. Say each command that you see on your screen.
5. Tap Done
Check the iPad Cable and the Port
Whenever your Apple device won’t charge, the most common cause is usually a faulty charger. Obviously, the easiest way to go is to seek an iPad repair service or immediately ask for a battery replacement. If you are using a third-party charger or cable, they may not be as durable as an official charger. It is important, therefore, to ascertain that you are using the charger or cable unit that came with the original Apple iPad set when first purchased.
Again, we cannot overly stress the fact that it is important for iPad users to purchase only Apple branded accessories such as chargers and cables. Or should you need a consult, consider talking to an apple support advisor or make an appointment at an apple-certified establishment or, better yet, an Apple store. You may also have the option to use apple branded accessories purchased separately, such as spare cabled wireless charges.
If in case your iPad still isn’t charging after using a third-party charger or cable, there may be a problem with the charging port. You can visit us at our London Liverpool Station branch and we can run a diagnosis on the iPad.
If your iPad won't charge, learn what to do. When your iPad is charging, you see a lightning bolt on the battery icon in the status bar or a large battery icon on your Lock screen.
If you don’t see the charging icons, follow these easy steps.
Make sure that you’re using the right accessories
1. Connect your iPad to a USB charging cable (preferably the cable that came with your original iPad set when purchased). Then plug the cable into one of these power sources: a. A USB power adapter that’s plugged into a working wall outlet. It's best to use the USB power adapter that came with your iPad. ; b. A USB port that supports USB 2 or later, on a computer that’s on and not in sleep mode; and c. A powered USB hub, docking station, or another Apple-certified accessory.
How do I Reboot an iPad?
If your iPad still won’t charge, try these tips:
Use a different power adapter or a different charging cable. Make sure that your iPad isn't too hot or too cold.
1. Force restart your iPad: For an iPad without a Home button: Press and quickly release the volume button closest to the top button. Press and quickly release the volume button farthest from the top button. Press and hold the top button until your iPad restarts. For an iPad with a Home button: Press and hold both the top (or side) button and the Home button until you see the Apple logo.
You are now all set to enjoy your iPad pro sans any other major issue. Remember that just like any other modern technology device, your Apple iPad needs some tender loving care through proper maintenance and storage. You must also double check the service fee or how much it will cost to have your iPad repaired, your apple warranty, what your replacement service may contain, if hardware service may be required and, finally, your rights provided by consumer law.
