Try a restart by powering off, waiting a minute, and powering back on.
If that doesn’t help, perform a forced restart by pressing both the Home and Power buttons at the same time until you see the Apple Logo on your screen, then release those buttons.
It could also be that you have an app behaving badly. So close all your apps by double pressing the Home button and then swiping up, off the top of your screen, all open apps.
It’s easy to get this error when you enter an incorrect passcode too many times.
If you want to attempt to get it back using iTunes, follow this guide: https://appletoolbox.com/forgot-iphoneipad-passcode-how-to-reset-your-passcode/
Or ask one of your sons to assist–even folks at the library often help with these tech problems as well. Or, if an Apple Store is nearby, you can set-up an appointment with them or walk-in and have the staff there assist you:
Another suggestion is for someone helping you to set-up your iPad in a friendly way following Sandy’s guide here:
Good luck! Hope that iPad gets working again and that you enjoy it for years to come.
For folks having this problem on a Mac or MacBook running macOS or late version of Mac OS X, please check out this article:
To see what updates are available, open the App Store App and see what shows up.
Make sure you backup your Mac onto an external hard drive before updating using Time Machine or some other backup tool like Carbon Copy Cloner.
If your Mac can run OS X Mavericks, it can run at least OS X Yosemite, maybe even El Capitan or macOS Sierra-Mojave
Back up your Mac FIRST before anything!
Open the Mac App Store and see what OS is available for your MacBook
Double-click Install OS to begin the installation
If you don’t see anything, check that your MacBook model supports the update you want (look at Apple’s System requirements).
Another method is to download the Combo Update. Look here: https://support.apple.com/downloads/macos
or simply do a search for the version you want to update to and add the word Combo, for example, searching for macOS High Sierra Combo leads to this page: https://support.apple.com/kb/DL1970?locale=en_US
To update to any version of macOS, your MacBook first needs to update to Mac OS X El Capitan.
Check if your mac can get El Capitan at this page: OS X El Capitan – Technical Specifications; https://support.apple.com/kb/SP728?locale=en_US
Then, download it via this site: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT206886
ALWAYS check that your MacBook model and version supports the operating system before downloading and installing. Look at System Requirements and Check Compatibility sections.
Deep press the image in the text message that you’d like to save until you see these menu options on-screen: Copy, Save, and More.
Choose Save and that photo should now be in your iPhone’s Photos Apps.
After the update to iOS12, many users report that Apple set a limit on the text replacement shortcuts to less than 128 characters.
Try shortening the text replacement phrases you currently have or create new ones at less than 128 characters and see if they work.
Try searching for the FaceTime App in the App Store. You usually have to manually search for it using the search bar and enter the word “FaceTime.”
If that doesn’t work, contact Apple Support in Saudi Arabia or your home country.
Anyone having the issue with not knowing the passcode for Screen Time, please see this article:October 23, 2018 at 9:08 AM in reply to: iBooks won’t show library or task bar since dating to ios12 #57917
Try the steps outlined here:
Screen Time’s password is the same as your restrictions passcode.
remove any case you have and check again. Sometimes badly designed iPhone cases cause this problem.
restart or force restart the device and see if this problem goes away or returns
It could be an ad or something else playing in the background or stuck so force close all open apps by double pressing home or swiping up the home gesture bar and then swiping up off the top of your screen all apps until you see the home screen with no app previews
If that doesn’t stop it, try Reset All Settings. Go to Settings >General >Reset >Reset All Settings. This resets to default everything in Settings, including notifications, alerts, brightness, and clock settings like wake up alarms.
Another possibility is a broken or dirty ringer switch. Press the slide switch and volume buttons on and off multiple times and see if this gets things going. You may need to get this switch replaced.
Oh my, that’s terrible!
First, check if there is a Deleted Users folder on your hard drive. Log in with another account and in Finder, choose to Go > Go to Folder, then enter /Users/Deleted Users, and select Go. See if your old account is there.
If so, follow the instructions in this Apple White Paper (https://support.apple.com/kb/PH25515?locale=en_US)
Restoring your files and a user account is also possible if you back up your Mac routinely via Time Machine.
1. Enter Time Machine
2. Go to Finders window
3. Browse Backup History to find your files or user account
4. Choose the files
5. Click on Restore
6. Specify the Destination Location
It’s likely you have icloud turned on, which brings back data and apps. So before you do anything else, disable iCloud for all your apps and settings.
To delete all data from your iPad, tap Settings > General > Reset and tap Erase All Content and Settings.
This should do the trick
If you’re using iOS 11, go to Settings > General > Shut Down
