Hi. I'm very new to the forum and very much an Apple innocent . Most of my computer skills and knowledge are Windows based.

iPad (6th generation) Software iPadOS version17.3.1
iPad was working properly responding to all links and apps before software update on Saturday Feb 24th. Following update most apps and all links refuse to respond. When I click a link I wait for a period of time and screen either remains blank or iPad reverts to home screen. This makes navigation and searching practically impossible. Anyone got the same result or know what has changed?
For some reason I haven't got a backup because iCloud backup was turned off (it was on the last time I looked!) so I cannot simply cannot revert to a pre Feb 24th backup because there are none there. If I back up the present system then I'll be backing up one which has errors.

If it has a Home button, the procedure is different: Press & hold Home button and the button at the top at the same time until you see the Apple logo. As soon as the logo appears, let go of both buttons.

Had to set this aside for a few days to cope with other things but it turns out that, following the update, the maximum number of apps were open with no room for anymore and once they were closed and some of the settings adjusted everything returned to normal. I had already tried the hard reset a number of times without success but now all is well. Thanks to those who suggested remedies. Your input was much appreciated.

Glad it is fixed.
