Rebooting the Apple iPad helps to troubleshoot the odd stopgap hindrances such as the application crashes and other issues. In most tablets, let alone refurbished iPads, a reboot helps in resolving application-concerned issues, Bluetooth or Wireless related stopgaps as well.
The primary reason why users reboot is that doing it manually troubleshoots the common glitches and errors and the iPad starts all over again. Below is how to reboot the unresponsive Apple iPad tablets manually.
Tap and grab a hold of the Sleep/Wake button for twenty seconds if the iPad is totally unresponsive. In the white colored iPad, one may find the power button hard to spot but it is placed below the screen. Subsequently, the iOS slider would prompt Slide To Power Off option on the screen prompting users to power off manually.
Slide the slider from left to right to reboot the iPad gently, or else long press the Sleep/Wake button to restart the device at one go. Precisely at this point, the iPad screen displays the usual circle of dashes indicating turn off alongside the Apple logo.
Once the iPad turns off subsequently, the displayed screen would turn black in color. Wait on the black screen for a couple of seconds, and then tap and hold the Sleep/Wake button once more to reboot the Apple iPad in case you have shut down with a gentle press. To restart the iPad tablets after the stopgap troubleshoots, let go of the hold completely.
Note that the Sleep/Wake button on an iPad can put the Apple tablet to sleep, while the iOS applications run in the background. This is why many users tend to put the iPad to sleep by mistake thinking that they have turned off the tablet, while the reality may be opposite. When the iPad restarts, however, the tablet would be in a brand new state minus any of the bugs.
Below given stopgap tends to occur in an Apple iPad, causing a user to reboot the tablet:
Hope the reboot clears the iPad glitches and makes its usage as usual. If not, contact Apple service representative for technical assistance.
