iPad Tip 1: Soft Reset

This is a really handy tip - performing a soft reset - i.e., a reboot.This will be extremely useful
in those rare cases when your iPad freezes or you’re struggling with a new iOS update.
Hold the top (power) and bottom front (home) button for about five seconds and your iPad
will restart. Similarly, to force-quit any application, hold the home button by itself for a few
seconds.
