Does anyone know what the iPad is actually doing during a hard reset? I only ask because it literally takes me 5 minutes or more to boot up during a hard reset these days. Took less than half a minute when I first got my iPad. Wondering what could be causing the delay?
I've been trying to update the OS to the new 184.108.40.206.220.127.116.11.whatever and the I-Pad wants to back up. I left it alone and came back over three hours later and it was about half done backing up. This is not the first time. I had basically given up backing up because of this. So I can't even get the update at this point.
Just noticed that my iPad (wifi) is not syncing the clock to the apple server and therefore seems to be 'losing' time. I notice that there are a few discussions around with no definitive answer. I don't believe this is a hardware or even firmware issue... but I might be wrong. Syncing to computer helps for a bit but then it drifts again. Powering off and on doesn't help either. Anyone else having this issue?
I am using iPad 3 but i think there is some problem in my iPad as it takes too much time to charge.Yesterday i left charging it whole night but it charged only upto 40%. What is the reason and what is the possible solution for the same.
Problems syncing with iCal ? I have the latest updates for for MBP 2011 and my New iPad. If I sync Contacts only, then it will be a few seconds.. but when I start to sync my iCal .. it neer ends .. even after a couple of hours. I am not syncing anything else at the moment. What can be the cause of this ? I am also running SyncMate for my legacy devices.. will SyncMate cause a problem ? I have tried many times and event Restore my new ipad with no improvements.
I have done this before by turning the iPad off (hold down the top button until the "Slide to turn off" appears but suddenly the darn thing does not turn off.It LOOKS like it is turning off - I slide the red slider and get a spinning ball for a brief time, but if I plug in or just hit the bottom switch, bingo, it pops back on instantly.My first thought was maybe I'm just not giving it enough time, but no, I gave it fifteen minutes and it still was not really off.
I don't have that much stuff on my Ipad, a few books, a few comics and now trying to sync two free tv shows (SD) and it's taking forever. What happens when you have a ton of stuff on?? It's already been like 15 minutes and it's not even 1/3 of the way done. Just keeps backing up.
When you take any picture with your iPad 3, I think it adds a date and time stamp.However I am not very sure but it looks simple.Now I want to see that date and time but don't know the process.Can you help me in viewing the same?
I use iMessage on my iPad both parties are on a strong WiFi connection, browsing, Facebook etc all work fine, but iMessage can sometimes take like 10+ minutes to receive a message from when it's sent. Sometimes I'll be sending messages and they go through, then all of a sudden they stop going through and don't go through for like ten minutes. I've tried closing the app in the multitasking bar, rebooting, restoring my iPad.
im a newbie iPad owner and am trying to download my first movie (a rental) from itunes and it's taking ages it's been 8 hours already and it's still less than a third downloaded, surely this can't be right?! I realise a lot depends on my wifi,which isn't the fastest but is pretty good, music and podcasts have downloaded almost instantaneously.
i unboxed my iPad, activated, then downloaded some apps straight on the device. went back to sync about 3 hours ago and its about 75% done with the "Backing up" stage in iTunes. its definitely moving, just ever so slowly. reminds me of the slow backups in iPhone OS 2.0 anyone else seeing this?
Two persons are on a strong WiFi connection and browsing, Facebook etc all work fine, but iMessage takes too much time to receive.It is taking more than 10 minutes to receive at other end. What is the problem? why this is happening and how to eradicate this problem..
Got an iPad 3 16GB black. Watched a 2 hr movie last night, full brightness. iPad was at 80% when I started watching, finished at 30% by end. Surfed a little bit before going to bed. iPad was at 18% when I plugged charger in. Shutoff (not sleep) so there would be nothing running. 8-1/2 hrs later, turn on iPad and it's only at 85%. This seems like a long time to charge. Is this normal?
I have the iOS 7 ipsw file saved to my PC. I got my iPad 2 into DFU mode, shift-clicked on "Restore iPad", specified the ipsw, and now it's been stuck at the "Preparing iPad for restore" for the last 10 minutes at least. Is this normal?
I'm trying to upgrade to iOS 7 from iOS 6.1.3 jailbroken.
I recently bought an iPad Air (Yesterday, WiFi, 32GB). It's a wonderful wonderful tablet. It also has a great battery that is surprisingly long lasting. But, I noticed that it takes a long time to charge it. I was on like 55-65% battery and I plugged the charger and measured about 1 hour and 10 minutes and it only got to 85%! Now maybe that's normal and if it is I'm okay with it cuz it does have a great battery, and maybe it comes with a "price" of long charging. But I wanted to ask anyways, is it normal?
I gave my mother an iPad 4 earlier this year, but she recently said she's still using her old iPad 1 to send mail because it takes too long on the new iPad. Now that she's visiting, I just did a side-by-side test connected to the same Wi-Fi and sending the same one-sentence test text, and the iPad 4 repeatedly took close to 10 minutes to send, while the iPad 1 was instantaneous. She's using the Apple mail app linked to her Gmail account. I tried deleting the account and setting it up again, but that made no difference.
I have several books in iBooks and they work great. I also have the ESV bible (4000+ pages) and it takes a long time (5 or more seconds) to show the highlight/notes menu when double tapping a word on certain pages and I cannot figure out why. The pages are in the 800s and some have highlight and some don't. I tried moving to different pages of the book higher and lower in page number and it works as expected. SO FRUSTRATING!I've tried the following: I searched the word "the" in the book to see if by continuing to run through the first 1000 pages of the search it would maybe index the book, but that made no change. I did a soft reset on the iPad by holding down the power and home button until seeing the Apple logo. I also told iTunes to not sync the book, then added it back again later. No change.
I am using iPad 2. Earlier the download speed was very satisfactory but i noticed that from last 2 weeks it is taking too much time to download free apps.What can be the possible reasons for the same? How to get the maximum download speed?
The computer I use to sync my iPad has a clock problem. If I'm not diligent about correcting it before I sync the time ends up being wrong. Is there a way to change the the time on the iPad itself; is there a good clock/Alarm App?
