Why My Ipad Apps Constantly Crashing?
Are your iPad apps constantly crashing? The reasons may vary, but if you’re not really that interested as to why they happen, and just on the “how-to-solve-them” part, then allow this article to enlighten you on some possible steps to stop your iPad apps from constantly crashing.
Step One: Check the developer if there is an available update.
Yep, sometimes your downloaded app just really have certain issues, but hopefully the developers have already finished the upgrade to solve it. Just download the available upgrade and check if your app is already okay. App still not okay or there aren’t any updates for your app? Proceed to the second step.
Step Two: Upgrade your iPad.
Maybe the app is not compatible with your current version of iOS? Check out the official Apple site for this, and see if there are any recent upgrades available for you to install. Your iPad’s totally up-to-date? Then check out step three.
Step Three: Restart.
There are three restart options available. If the problem is only with just one app, then just restart that particular app. Go to your Home screen by tapping the Home button. Double-tap the Home button to display your recent apps. Now, if you see the app in question, tap and hold it until the red minus appears. The moment it does tap it once to close the app, then restart your app from there.
If restarting the app doesn’t do the trick then maybe a soft restart will do. To do this, just hold the Sleep/Wake button until the “slide-to-power off” appears, when it does, then proceed to power off. Turn it back on by, again, pushing the Sleep/Wake button. Check your app. Is it already okay? If not, then maybe a hard restart is needed.
The hard restart could be done by holding down the Sleep/Wake button for more than 15 seconds until the Apple logo appears, or while holding down both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for 10 seconds until, again, the Apple logo appears. To turn your iPad back on, just hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears again. Check your app. Is it already working? Still not? Move on to the next step.
Step Four: Reinstall.
So you need to uninstall your app first. Do this by tapping and holding it until the x appears. Tap x to delete the app. There are different options in reinstalling, the first one is just reinstalling it through iTunes. Plug your iPad into iTunes, check the app to be installed and sync. Once it’s done, unplug your iPad and restart. Check your app. If it’s still not okay, redelete it and re-download it via App Store. Don’t worry you don’t need to pay for it again, just redownload it and reinstall it. Check your app again. Still not working? Don’t lose hope there are still ways. Just move on to step five.
Step Five: Airplane Mode.
It’s true that the Airplane Mode have nothing to do with the app that you’re accessing but sometimes certain apps crash because of problems with network connectivity. So to solve this, just set it on Airplane Mode or turn off the Wi-Fi. Check the app. If it’s still not working, resort to the last and final step.
Step Six: Restore.
It would mean starting from scratch and reinstalling your OS. So plug in your iPad to your iTunes, right click and select Back Up. After this, click Restore from Backup. Choose the latest one, and wait until the whole process is over.
That should do the trick, but if it still doesn’t, then it’s time to contact the developer. Good luck!
