Resetting a Frozen iPad

If you encounter an iPad problem that causes it to freeze, or if it is sluggish when you tap on an app, try a hard reset.

  1. Press and hold down the sleep/wake button at the top of you iPhone or iPad while at the same time, pressing and holding down the Home button on the front of your iPhone or iPad.
  2. Keep holding both buttons held until the screen turns off. It will automatically turn back on again and display the Apple logo.

Delete the Facebook app from your iPad (press on its icon until it quivers, tap the X to delete it, tap the home button). Then, open the App Store application and tap Purchased. Find Facebook and re-download it. You'll be asked to log into Facebook with your user ID (email address?) and password to continue.

My ipad is stucked.


This tutorial will explain how to force your iPad to restart if it gets stuck or freezes up.
Forcing your iPad to restart will not cause any loss of data - with the possible exception of any work you were doing at the time the iPad and/or App froze, forcing you to restart it.

Click and hold down the Sleep/Wake button (located on the upper-right corner of your iPad). While you're holding down the Sleep/Wake button, hold down the Home button as well (located on the front of your iPad at the bottom). Hold down both buttons until your iPad powers off. It will reboot and start again with a small silver Apple image on the screen. It takes about 30 seconds for the iPad completely start up.
