Have you ever experienced your iPad Pro crashing, freezing, or displaying the black screen of death? If yes, then you know that restarting or rebooting it is the solution. But what if you can’t seem to restart it normally? You might want to try doing a force restart instead. In this post, we’ll show you how to do a force restart on your iPad Pro, depending on whether it has a home button or not.

1. Press the Volume Up button.

2. Press the Volume Down button.

3. Press and hold the Power button until the Apple logo appears.

In case you encounter a black screen or any other issue, just do the steps above, and hold on to the Power button until the logo appears. Don’t let go of the button until the logo appears, as this may take a few seconds. Once you see the logo, then you can release the Power button.

For the iPad Pro that has a home button, the process is much simpler. Here’s what you need to do:

1. Press and hold the Power button and Home button simultaneously.

2. Continue holding both buttons until the Apple logo appears.

3. Release both buttons once you see the logo.

If you’re still experiencing issues on your iPad Pro, you can keep doing the force restart. It may take five or six times before the issue corrects itself.
