Something scary happened

When I turned my iPad on, first i went to settings to check something, it would not load, just a white screen. Then I tried Facebook, it was stuck on the notifications screen. When I tried to get on the main screen, it would minimize. I had to restart my iPad. Is this anything to worry about?

I wouldn't worry about it.



Have you backed up your iTunes Library this week? If not, you are risking losing your music and playlists....

I would restore it if it happens more than once.

Let me Goo....

Plug the iPad into your iTunes computer
Click on the iPad in iTunes (right most button on the button bar)
Let the backup finish, or if you don't have backups enabled, make one now, by clicking the Back Up Now button.
Click on the Restore button (this will erase everything from the iPad and reload it)
Follow prompts (enter passcode when asked)
Should take 20-30 minutes.
