Resetting the iPad
A brief tutorial on how to reset your iPad. If your device is acting funny (apps crashing, becoming slower, etc.), consider resetting it as a solution.
Hold down the Power button (on top by the rear-facing camera) and Home button (on the opposite end of from the front-facing camera) at the same time until your iPad’s screen goes black and then displays the Apple Logo.
Wait for the device to boot up (usually about 20 seconds). Once the security keypad appears, you’re done.
While it probably won’t solve every problem, I have yet to encounter an iPad problem that it couldn’t solve for me. After I reset, it’s usually faster and more responsive, and I don’t have Apps crashing on me.
