In your settimgs go to back up/restore. There should be the option to factory reset your device. Click it, after confirming you want to reset, your device will reset back to its original settings.

If you use a Mac or PC to backup or sync your iPad, connect your iPad to that computer with the appropriate cable. Start iTunes and select the device. At the upper right, click "Restore iPad..." and follow the directions to erase and configure the iPad to its original "out-of-the-box" state.

If you're planning to give or sell this device to someone else, just disconnect it from your computer when it reaches the "ready to initialize" stage.

How do I do a factory recovery on my mini ipad


iTunes enables you to restore iPad mini to factory settings. Before you start restoring iPad to factory settings, please note that you need to install the latest version of iTunes on your Windows computer or MAC. Then go to Settings > iCloud to turn off Find My iPhone. Now, you can factory reset your iPad with iTunes as follows.

1. Plug iPad into the computer with the USB cable. The iTunes on your computer will automatically launch. If not, double-click the icon to start it.
2. Click the name of your iPad at the upper right corner of iTunes, and then the information of your iPad will be shown. Click the "Restore iPhone" button in the window to start.
3. iTunes will ask whether you want to back up iPad before restoring. You'd better choose "Yes" for the reset will erase the contents in your iPad. Then iTunes will start restoring your tablet to factory settings.
4. Click Restore again to confirm. Then iTunes erases your iPad and installs the latest iOS software. After you restore your device to factory settings, it will restart. Now you can set it up as new.

I have a iPad mini that says activation lock. I bought from someone. How do I unlock it?


This means the ipad is reported stolen by the owner and is being tracked.......the owner is the only person who can unlock it!
it is a security app, 'find my ipad' and cannot be unlocked without the apple id!

My ipad is locked up and will not reboot, keeps saying go to itunes


Try a Hard Reset. Hold the On button and the Home button until you see the Apple Logo.

If that doesn't work , you need to connect it to a computer and use iTunes program to do a Factory reset. You will lose all the data on the iPad unless it is backed up, but it will give you a freshly installed machine.

My Netflix is not loading my films/programs onto my iPad2, but it is perfectly fine on my iPad mini, what's happening? Can you help?


Hi
I have a similar challenge. Netflix works fine on my iPad mini and Samsung smart TV. The trouble is on the Apple TV .
I think I restarted the Apple TV to set this right.
Try going to settings -general -reset on the iPad 2 and see if there is a possibility there.

I have a Mini IPad and my Icons got erased by accident how do I get them back


Go into your settings under general, there you should be able to reactivate the apps and icons that came with the tablet. If there are purchased apps go into App Store and retrieve them from the cloud

No App Store app on my ipad mini


Is it really gone? From the home screen, swipe down from middle of the screen to show iPad search. Type "App Store" in the search box. Scroll down to Applications section. Is App Store there? If so, it's on your iPad - perhaps dragged into a group somewhere.

If not, plug your iPad into the desktop Mac or PC you're using to sync. Select the iPad in the left column and click the Apps header. Scroll the list until you find the App Store app. The button should say "Install". If so, click it, then sync your iPad.

My new apple ipad mini is locked and wont accept my password and i do not have any apps downloaded not even itunes and do not have a computer


To reset it without having the screen lock code, you will have to find a computer that you can put iTunes on in order to hook up your iPad and reset it.

My screen keep bleeping out and goes to black screen with Apple icon.


Sounds like a battery issue. Make sure your battery is charged. If it still does that, you can try to reset the iPAD back to factory settings if it will stay on long enough. Google for iPAD reset.

Screen has a problem when flipping through apps previous image stays on screen kind of blurred out


It is called ghosting and has been a major issue for the Mini thus far (even though it hasn't been reported in the MSM).

Play with your settings to find a way where it effects you less-- screen brightness, motion detection, reset the device and restore to original settings (but back your Mini up first!).
