Of iPad that do not load, or at a reduced speed is a common problem for Apple users (but not only).
In fact, the port of your iPad (Lightning, 30-pin or USB Type-C) being open and exposed, dust can infiltrate and clog the connections. Also the cable, to force to be carried or rolled may be damaged over time. However, this means that your iPad and its battery are not defective.
In this article, we present to you a series of troubleshooting tips that will help you determine what prevents your iPad to charge correctly and how to resolve these issues.
The fundamental .
Make sure that the cable is correctly connected to your iPad, that in the rush it is not half entered, and that the ac adapter is plugged in to your wall outlet.
Charge an iPad from a Mac .
The charge to an iPad via a Mac is always slower than if it is made from an electrical outlet, since the power supplied is not the same.
The iPad can alert you if your Mac fails to reload it, but this happens infrequently. Sometimes, the battery icon appears but its rate remains unchanged.
If you load it via a MacBook, make sure that this last is itself is plugged in, and regardless of the Mac you are using, be sure to connect your tablet to the Mac, rather than your external keyboard, or other for example.
As for the previous tip, make sure that the tip of the USB is inserted to the corresponding output of the Mac and that the latter is switched on or in standby.
Take a break from iPad ! .
Do you use your iPad while its charging ? If this is the case, be aware that any charge gained will be deducted, especially if you use power-hungry applications or play games for the graphics top of the range. These programs draw heavily on the battery.
Check the port of your iPad .
Remove the charging cable and make sure the port is free of debris and dust.
Are you using the right ac adapter ? .
The Apple Watch and the iPhone are sold with adaptors of 5W, while those provided with the iPad is 10W or 12W, but they are compatible between them. You can so use your iPhone with your iPad and vice versa.
However, with 12W, the iPhone 6 and later will load more quickly, whereas with 5W an iPad will take more time.
Wait, restart and reset .
Apple recommends to disconnect your iPad, connecting it to a power source and wait 30 minutes.
If, at this stage, your device still won’t load, then Apple suggests that you restart when connected to the mains. If you can’t restart then restart it.
What component is not working ? .
If none of our 6 troubleshooting tips the previous has not had the expected results then it may be that one of the components is faulty.
We recommend that you connect your iPad to a different outlet or a different USB port on your Mac. If it works then it means that the port or socket used in the 1st instance does not function properly.
Also, try using the cable from a friend, if your iPad is charging then your cable seems to be the cause of the problem.
You can get a new one from this page Apple ; Amazon also offers.
To Contact Apple .
If you can’t visit an Apple Store or make an appointment, then please do not hesitate to contact the Apple support. However, you will be very likely asked to leave your iPad and wait for their diagnosis.
If you are still under warranty, this service should not be charged, however without any warranty, some people are seen to pay more than 200 €.
