    I left my iPad in my car in extreme cold (-35). It now won't turn on (I have left it to warm up for 15 hours). Is there any hope for it to work again?

    Have you attempted to charge it? The battery may have completely discharged because of the cold. If the charging sequence doesn't initiate,
    it may indicate damage to components. If you're near an Apple Store you can take it in for a diagnostic.

    Good luck.

    Glad it worked out. Notice you're in Saskatchewan. Beautiful province. My sister-in-law lived in Saskatoon for several years. At the time we were in Calgary and we'd go see them once a month, by car. Prince Albert is an amazing place too. The night sky there is pretty awesome.
