If you have been using it your iPad for a long time and it has been filled with a lot of stuff, you might encounter issues every now and then. It is because there are tons of files (useful and useless) on your device that are causing your system to get frozen or act weird.

If your iPad is in such a situation, an ideal solution is to reset the device. Resetting the device erases all the data stored on it and gives you a fresh point to begin with. This way your iPad won’t act weird anymore as it will then only have the stock apps and stock settings.

There are a number of ways to reset an iPad - and in this guide - we are going to show you two of the ways to reset an iPad without using the iTunes app.

Here you go, folks:

Way 1: Hard Resetting the iPad without iTunes

Please backup any data you have stored on your iPad as this should erase it all from your device.

1.Press and hold down both Power and Home buttons together on your iPad. Keep them held down until your iPad reboots. This should take a couple of seconds, though.

2. When the iPad reboots, you will see the Apple logo on your screen. At this point, let go of the buttons you have been holding down.

3. The iPad should now be reset and it will ask you to input your passcode for you to move forward.

So, that was how you could reset an iPad without using the iTunes app. It is the most easiest way to reset an iPad and it does not even require using your computer at all.

Way2: Resetting an iPad from the Settings Panel without using iTunes

Another way to reset an iPad is to use the settings panel given on your iPad. Here’s how to do that:

Note: I have used an iPhone to do the following steps on but the steps should be the same on an iPad as well as both iPhone and iPad run iOS.

1.Tap on the Settings option on the homescreen of your iPad. It will take you to your iPad’s settings panel.

2. When the settings panel launches, tap on the option that says General. It will open the general settings panel.

3. When the general settings panel launches, tap on the option that says Reset. It has all the reset options for your iPad.

4. When the reset panel opens, tap on the option that says Erase All Content and Settings. It is for erasing all the contents and factory resetting your iPad.
