Like most computers and portable devices, the iPad Pro 2018 may freeze. The first instinct in such cases is to force a reboot. This simple action can handle minor operating system bugs.

Sometimes iPad tablets hang on the Apple logo when starting or rebooting. Most often this happens due to an unsuccessful software update, but sometimes there may be other reasons for this.

Forced reboot also helps in cases where the screen of your iPad Pro freezes or just does not light up. Due to the lack of a Home button, the way to force a reboot on the new iPad Pro has changed. If you have an iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max or iPhone XR, you are already familiar with it.

Below, I’ll show you how to force a reboot on iPad Pro 2018.
