Fix Common iPadOS Issues and Problems

iPadOS comes with hundreds of new features such as Dark Mode, New Reminders app, New Photo, and Video editor, Widgets on the Home screen, and more, but like any major software update, there have been reports of users facing problems with iPadOS. Here are some of the common iPadOS issues that users are reporting and what you can do to fix these issues.

How to Fix the Most Common iPadOS Issues

1. Not Getting iPadOS OTA Update

If you don’t get the iPadOS software update when you go the Settings app and navigate to General > Software Update, then please check the list of compatible iPads with iPadOS.

If your iPad is compatible with iPadOS, but you’re still not getting the iPadOS OTA update then you can check our post on how to install iPadOS update on your iPad manually using iTunes.

2. iPadOS Software Update Failed

This usually occurs when you are trying to download a new iOS software immediately after it is released as the surge in traffic can cause the update requests to fail.

Since the initial rush to update has passed, you shouldn’t hit the issue if you try to download and install the iOS 13 update now. You can also check our article for tips on how to fix the iPadOS 13 software update failed error.

3. Apps Are Crashing

It can be frustrating when your favorite apps start crashing after installing a new software update. You can try the following solutions to fix the issue:

  • Make sure that the app has been updated to the latest version. To do so, go to the App Store and open the Updates tab. See if there are any available updates for the app.
  • Uninstall the app and then reinstall it. To do so, tap and hold on the app until it starts wiggling. Press the ‘X’ button and choose Delete. Next, go to the App Store and install the app again.

4. Wi-Fi Issues

If you’re not able to connect to the Wi-Fi network, then try to hard reset or force reboot your iPad to see if it resolves the issue. If that doesn’t work then you can try to reset network settings by going to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.
