Apple has introduced a number of innovations to the world of tablets and smart touchscreen feature is one of them. A touchscreen was not that popular before Apple launched their phenomenal iPhone and iPad models. However, they play a great role in one’s day-to-day life today.
It was seen that some iPad users complained recently that they are experiencing touchscreen issues on their tablet. Many users who own iPad devices have no idea on what they should do when the touchscreen of their device stops working suddenly. Yet again, if your iPad is experiencing touchscreen issues, you can efficiently resolve the problem following these simple steps.
The first and most important thing you should do is to simply restart the device.
- Press and slowly hold the Wake/Sleep button of your tablet until the slider appears
- Now, use the Slide To Power Off to turn off the device
- Leave the device undisturbed for a couple of minutes, and turn the device on by pressing and holding the Wake/Sleep button of your iPad until you see the Apple logo
If the touchscreen of your tablet is still entirely unresponsive, then you might not be able to restart the device by pressing the Wake/Sleep button and dragging the slider. In such a scenario, you will have to go for a Force Restart and here is how you can do that.
- Carefully press and hold the Wake/Sleep button of your iPad along with the Home button until you see the Apple logo on the screen of your device
- Now, allow the restarting process to complete
- Wait for a couple of minutes and check whether the touchscreen issue is resolved
If the issue persists, then the issue might be due to a specific app that you have installed on the tablet. If you are unable to identify which one of the apps in your tablet is causing the issue, seek the help of an expert Apple technician. On the other hand, if you have already identified the app that is causing touchscreen issues, then proceed to these set of steps.
- Open the home screen of your tablet
- Now, tap and hold the app icon until it start jiggling
- Select the x sign on the right corner of the application
- Now, select Delete
Turn off your iPad, switch it back on after a couple of minutes, and check whether you are still having touchscreen issues or not. If you are still having touchscreen issues, seek the help of an expert Apple technician for assistance.
