    My I pad started playing a tune yesterday for no reason. It was almost like a phone ringing tune. I could not shut it off except by going to the volume button on the side of the I pad.

    Has something gotten into my I pad?

    How can I find out?

    It may have been an advertising jingle - if you were using a non -native App.

    Hi Neo - I'm assuming you own an iPad 3 (forum that you put your thread in) - also tell us which iOS is installed. First, there are no viruses 'in the wild' that will infect iOS - the main malware issues relate to browser hijacking, ransomware, etc. Second, check Settings -> Battery to see what apps have been active recently - maybe a clue (see pic below). Finally, do you have other iDevices, like a phone, and have you setup you devices to all ring when a call comes in? Dave :)

    Double click your home button and force close any apps that are open until the music stops. Otherwise check your clock app and make sure an alarm isn't set

    Thanks, Jupiter 7...nope. Do not have any apps other than approved ones, and. One have alarms..because.....

    Thanks to giradman, I went to my battery and usage and no apps showed up as using lots of battery power which might have alarms.

    Thank you, Brian, yes, I checked my clock app and no alarm was set. I also went to my settings area and double checked EVERYTHING. And made sure all notifications were off..

    Did everything I know to do.
    Yes, I have I pad 3D generation.

    Thank you all but PROBLEM not solved yet!!

    Do you use an external keyboard with your iPad?
    It's possible that one key activated a feature on your iPad, in your case music.

    When I said non-native Apps, I meant downloaded Apps, as opposed to the built-in ones. Often free Apps have advertisements which play sounds, including music.

    Gosh, I went to settings and checked all apps for alarms and notifications and everything is turned off..

    It just happened at a strange time..

    This has never happened before..and I try not to get free apps for that reason..I want to keep my sanity and privacy ..ha ha..not really possible so I understand.

    Thank you for your kindness Jupiter
