3 Ways to Reboot Or Restart A Frozen Or Hung iPad Without iTunes
Is your iPad or iPhone frozen? Has your iPhone or iPad been "bricked" by some ill advised software or a failed jailbreak? Annoying, isn't it? Usually you see solutions to these kind of problems which feature iTunes, but what if that doesn't work and iTunes isn't seeing your iOS device?
The process of rebooting or restarting a frozen iPhone or frozen iPad is a little laborious, and unless you already know how to do it means a bit of time “getting the knack” of it. You perhaps have to watch a couple of video tutorials, and even then after all that, even with the help of iTunes, you may still be where you started and not get your iPhone or iPad back to normal with your data intact.
So what do you do?
Three Ways to Reboot Your Hung iPad
Obviously the very FIRST thing you should try whenever you have any kind of stuck iPhone or iPad is a hard reboot. Just hold down the power button and Home button for a few seconds until you see the Apple logo.
The SECOND method is to get your iPhone into “recovery mode” and perform a reset or return to factory settings using iTunes. However, in this way all data on your iPad will get lost.
But what if that doesn’t work because the phone is stuck and not detectable? Luckily there is a better THIRD option in the form of a piece of software that can help get out of any stuck iPhone situation, a sort of Swiss army knife for iOS rebooting. Below we will show the third option for you in details.
