  • Software issues
  • Jailbreak problems (if applicable)

How Can I Resolve an iPad Stuck in Boot Loop?

Utilize a Specialized System Repair Tool

If your iPad is stuck in a frustrating boot loop, don't despair. You can use UltFone iOS System Repair to fix an iPad stuck in a boot loop. There are solutions available beyond simply restarting the device. 

Some software tools can potentially resolve the issue without erasing your data. It's always best to consult the specific instructions for these tools, but generally, they offer a user-friendly way to diagnose and fix boot loop problems on iPads.

  • Get UltFone iOS System Repair from the official website. 

  • Connecting your iPad to your computer.
  • Choose Standard Repair to continue.

  • Press the Download button to get the firmware package that matches your device. You can select where to save the firmware package.

  • Once you've downloaded the firmware package, click on “Start Standard Repair” to fix iOS issues. Wait a few minutes for the process to resolve the iPad stuck on the Apple logo loop.

Be sure to consult the specific software's instructions for detailed steps.

Perform a Hard Reset on Your iPad

  • Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for about 25-30 seconds.

  • Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and either volume button for about 25-30 seconds.

In both cases, wait for the Apple logo to appear to indicate the iPad is restarting.

Use iTunes to Restore the iPad

If a hard reset doesn't resolve the issue of your iPad being stuck on the Apple logo, you can attempt to restore it using iTunes. However, be cautious, as this may erase all your data and reset your iPad to its original state.

  • Open iTunes and connect your iPad to the computer with a cable.
  • Press and hold both the Power button and the Home button for 10 seconds. Let go of the Power button but keep holding the Home button until you see the “Connect to iTunes” screen appear on your iPad.

  • Quickly press and release the Volume Up button, then the Volume Down button. Finally, press and hold the Top button until you see the Apple logo, then keep holding until the “Connect to iTunes” screen appears.

  • iTunes will detect your iPad in Recovery Mode. A message will prompt you to either “Restore” or “Update” your iPad.
  • For boot loop issues, select “Restore” and confirm the action. iTunes will erase your iPad's data and install the latest software, which should hopefully fix the boot loop problem.

Handling an iPad Stuck in the Boot Loop Because of Low Battery or Charging

Is your iPad restarting repeatedly, even while charging? Here's a potential fix:

  • Connect your iPad's charging cable to a wall outlet. The iPad might restart and show the Apple logo.
  • Once the logo appears, quickly disconnect the charger even if you see the home screen for a moment.
  • Reconnect the charger immediately after the home screen disappears.
  • The iPad should power off and ideally stop restarting. Let it charge uninterrupted for at least 30 minutes before using it again.

How to Resolve a Boot Loop Without Performing a Factory Reset

Worried about losing data? Try a forced restart first. Unlike a factory reset that erases everything, a forced restart can sometimes fix the boot loop problem without wiping out your data. Follow the steps above to perform a forced restart on your iPad.
