There are many reasons why an iPad screen might go black, maybe its battery is dead or a software crash might have caused it. Before you jump to conclusions that you’ve lost your iPad for good, here are some ways you can troubleshoot it.
Charge the iPad’s Battery
If you haven’t already, try turning the iPad on. Press the power button down until you see the Apple logo. But if you do this and nothing happens then connect your iPad to the power outlet and then press the power button again to see if it shows a charging icon. Your battery might have drained completely and It might require some time to charge until it shows any sign of life. It is recommended by Apple to use an Apple certified charger only with your Apple devices, especially in these cases.
Maybe the brightness is too low
In bright light, if your screen’s brightness is too low, your iPad might look dead. Adjust the screen brightness from your iPad’s control center or just command Siri to do so.
If the above steps don’t work, then you’ve no choice but to reboot your iPad. This also fixes any issues that might cause your iPad to run slowly or be buggy.
- Press the home button and the power button of your iPad together until you see an Apple logo on the screen.
- If your iPad doesn’t have a home button, then press the volume up button and then hold down the volume down button, afterward press the power button until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
After this, turn your iPad on by pressing the power button. Rebooting might not be successful at first and you might have to try doing this several times so don’t freak out if you don’t get this step right at the first try. If this doesn’t work, then you’ll have to visit your nearest Apple store and get professionals to see what’s wrong with your iPad.
