How to troubleshoot iPad problems
iPad is an amazing computer, managing to be powerful, portable, and accessible all at the same time. If it's working. If it's giving you problems — if it's sluggish or stuck, won't power off or power back on, if the battery is draining fast or not charging properly, if you can't connect to Bluetooth, HomeKit, or AirDrop — then it's a worthless hunk of metal and glass.
