We laid off an employee but don't have his passcode to reset the ipad to it's factory settings.Is there anyway I can do this? I tried following the directions I found:
If you dont know the passcode to go into the ipad and reset it, you simply need to connect the iPad to iTunes.
Connect your iPad to the USB port on your computer, open iTunes and on the left side of the panel will appear a category for Devices... select the iPad. The summary window will have the information on the iPad and below that the choice for Restore. Select Restore, and you will have to do some confirming usually, and the system will go to work restoring the iPad to the factory settings.
I work at an elementary school and we have iPads for the students, however, a staff member who no longer works here set up the iPads using an unknown Apple ID. Is there a way to factory reset the iPads without having to re-enter the Apple ID after restoring it?
I'm buying a used one and just wanted to make sure that I will need to reset it back to the factory settings to sync it with my itunes like an ipod. Which means that I won't be able to use any apps that are on it from the past user, correct? He also said that I could use the rest of the month of 3G that he had. Can I do that without his password and will I be able to prepay using that sim card on my own account in the future?
I bought some apps and downloaded some free one, but they are not showing up on my iPad after I connect it to my pc. This sis the first time this problem has occurred. In the past, the apps were put on the iPad as soon as i connected it.
I recently bought an ipad that was a demo in a store. I didn't think it would be a problem because I would just factory reset it to the normal setting. However, there is no factory reset option for me to chose. I am going through the settings - general - and scrolling to the bottom but there is not a reset option. Also... I downloaded new apps and I cannot get them to delete by holding them for ten seconds.... I currently own an Ipod touch which I thought would be similar but apparently not
How to I reset the iPad back to factory default without wiping out my apps/info in iTunes? I plan to sell the iPad and get the 3G version when it comes out. So, I want to keep all the stuff in iTunes to sync to the new iPad when I get it, but I want to wipe my current iPad.
1.) The iPad will work perfectly for several days. 2.) Then it will no longer detect wifi networks at all. It simply says "No networks found". (This is not an issue with the wifi network itself) 3.) Power the iPad off and then back on normally. 4.) The iPad has now been factory reset and must be completely setup again.
Nothing atypical is on the iPad as far as applications going. And this scenario has happened multiple times.
Is it possible using only by holding down a combination of the external buttons or is it a fault?
I believe the kids because it happened this morning whilst only the youngest (2) was only able to touch it. It has a passcode which she doen't know (or comprehend, if it's not Peppa Pig she isn't interested!) so I assume she was just touching the the top and side (volume) buttons, maybe the 'Home' button also, but definitely hadn't turned it 'on' and able to go into the settings.
I got a brand new ipad2 yesterday for my birthday! The apps were closing themselves out before even opening. I read about this online and it said to do an update. I did the update, but it failed. My wifi was secure but still didn't work. Next thing I know my ipad2 is now flashing on and off. I can't turn it off. I tried the reset by the sleep button and the home button. Next I tried to do a factory reset through icloud but it says that I must first turn off find my ipad feature. I did that, but it's still telling me I need to turn it off.
1. Resetting my ipad so it'll turn on ... 2. Updating to the best or most current ios version ... 3. Make sure that my apps will open ...
Two days ago, I turned on my iPad to play a little GodFinger. I found that the "Connect to laptop" starting screen was on. I figured this was some way Apple had of forcing customers to take an update for security reasons or some such. Imagine when I found out that this was a spontaneous hard factory reset.I have to take a sync from 6 weeks ago and reset from there. I'm furious.I cannot believe that I'm alone with this symptom. Has anyone else suffered this?
I'm trying to factory reset my ipad 2 but an old appleid keeps popping up for me to confirm the password before erasing.Â I changed my email on the appid years ago and don't have access to that account.Â how can I clear it.
i might sign-up for the 3G plan just so i can get in before the unlimited plan thing is gone...my question is.... if later for some reason i am factory restoring my IPAD or jail breaking it and needs to flash and rewrite every thing back .. am i losing on my ipad plan? do i need to resign-up for the plan?
I noticed today that I got the U2 album download on my iPad.Â Ok, I didn't have auto downloads turned off.Â However, this is a bear to get rid off.
The U2 album does NOT show up on my Mac iTunes, it does not show up in my apple account so there is no way to hide it.
it only shows up on my iPad. (I didn't bother to check my iPhone but i am sure it is there too).
I have been reading through all these forums but there seems nothing I can do.Â I just reset the iPad to factory setting and reloaded everything.
I still have the U2 album showing up as being purchased and ready to be downloaded from the cloud.
On the iPad reset I did not enable iCloud and I will not.Â
I simply can't believe that Apple did this - it is almost like having a virus on the system.Â I hope they come up with a fix to remove this from those that did not request it.Â I am disabling iCloud from all my devices due to this.Â
I Woke up this morning and couldn't access my iPad. It will only allow me to connect to iTunes to restore factory settings,. I have no issues until now and don't understand why this has been forced upon me? i.e. Wipe all my data overnight??
