    Hi!

    Suddenly all my apps on my iPad 2 are frozen. It will not update, and now almost all needs updating. Any suggestions to get out of this mess?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Nina and welcome to the Forum,

    The following are the first steps to take when your iPad gets a bit funky.

    Close all apps completely - From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press the app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, now press the home button to return to your screen. It's also a good idea to close all these apps, as it helps the iPad run smoothly. See if it is now operating, if not a restart is in order.

    Restart - Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well. Now see if it is operating, if not the next step is a reset, this will not change anything on your iPad and is akin to rebooting a PC.

    Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. Let us know how you go.
