How to Reboot iPad: A Step-by-Step Guide

Press and hold the top button and the Home button at the same time. When the Apple logo appears, release both buttons .

If you’re an iPad Pro user and you’re having trouble restarting your device, don’t panic. Whether you’re dealing with a black screen of death, lagging, or freezing, a force restart might be the solution you need. In this guide, we’ll show you how to force restart your iPad Pro, depending on whether or not your device has a physical home button.

For iPad Pro models that don’t have a home button, the process is a little different. Start by pressing the volume up button and the volume down button simultaneously. Then, press and hold the power button until the Apple logo appears. Keep holding the button until the logo appears, even if your screen is completely black. Once the logo appears, release the button, and your iPad should restart.

For iPad Pro models with a physical home button, the process is much simpler. Press and hold both the power button and the home button at the same time. Keep holding both buttons until you see the Apple logo appear, then release them both. Your iPad will restart, and you should be able to use it normally.

If you’re still experiencing issues after the initial force restart, try repeating the process multiple times. Sometimes, it can take several attempts to fix the problem. If you’re still having problems after multiple attempts, it may be time to contact Apple support for further assistance.

We hope this guide has been helpful in teaching you how to force restart your iPad Pro. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to leave them below.
