Frozen iPad Screen
You may have the problem that your iPad screen freezes and is unresponsive for some time. On many of the Apple forums, a frozen iPad screen is one of the most common complaints on there. One of the most likely causes of the device freezing is most probably a specific app, however, it’s not always straightforward understanding what app is causing it. If the freezing continuously happens, have a look at what apps are running at the time and try uninstalling those apps. To try and fix this issue, try restarting the iPad by holding down the Power button until ‘slide to power off’ appears on the screen, then slide to power off. Press and hold the power button to start the device up again.

iPad Charging Issues
If you have the problem that your iPad won’t charge at all when you plug it into the power adapter, there could be multiple reasons why you’re struggling to charge the device. You may find that the device doesn’t charge when plugged into the computer, it could be the port you’re trying to charge it with. Try using the power adapter as a replacement instead. To see if your iPad is charging, you will see the lightning symbol appear on the screen. If you’re charging the iPad via the computer, it will always charge slower than a normal iPad charger. A possible solution is finding out if it’s the charger or the iPad, try charging another device with the same charger. This should tell you if it’s the iPad or the charger. Similar to the point above, try rebooting the iPad, to see if that has an impact on the iPads charging.
iPad Not Connecting to Wi-Fi
