Here we can see, “Can I Restart An iPad Without The Power Button? Yes! Here’s How”
The power button on your iPad isn’t working; therefore you want to restart it. Broken buttons are inconvenient, but AssistiveTouch allows you to reset your iPad. I’ll show you how to restart an iPad without using the power button in this article.
If iOS 10 Is Installed On Your iPad
If your iPad is running iOS 10, there are two steps to restarting it without the power button. You’ll need to turn off your iPad first, then plug in your Lightning cable to a power source.
Don’t worry if your iPhone turns off due to a broken power button: you can always turn it back on by plugging it into a power source like a USB port on your computer, a wall charger, or a car charger!
First, Turn On AssistiveTouch
We’ll utilize AssistiveTouch to restart your iPad without pressing the power button. AssistiveTouch adds a virtual Home button to your iPad, which is helpful if any of your iPad’s hardware buttons are stuck, jammed, or completely broken.
Open the Settings app, then tap General -> Accessibility -> AssistiveTouch to add the AssistiveTouch virtual Home button on your iPad. Toggle on AssistiveTouch by tapping the switch next to it; the switch will turn green, and a virtual Home button will appear on your iPhone’s display.
How To Restart An iPad Running iOS 10
In iOS 10, tap the virtual AssistiveTouch button Assistive Touch Button to restart an iPad without using the power button. This will open the AssistiveTouch menu. After pressing and holding the Device button, press and hold the Lock Screen button as you would the physical power button on your iPad.
The red power icon and the words “slide to power off” will appear towards the top of your iPad’s display after a few seconds. Slide the red power icon from left to right to turn off your iPad.
To turn it back on, take your Lightning wire and plug it into any power source, just like you would while charging your iPad. The Apple logo will appear in the centre of your iPad’s display after a few seconds or minutes.
If iOS 11 Is Installed On Your iPad
When iOS 11 was released, AssistiveTouch gained the ability to restart an iPad without using the power button. Previously, you had to use AssistiveTouch to switch off your iPad and then connect it back to a power source with older versions of iOS (10 or older). Because this was a time-consuming operation, Apple introduced a restart button to AssistiveTouch.
Open the Settings app and go to General -> Software Update to update to iOS 11. Tap Download and Install if an upgrade to iOS 11 is available. Be patient as the update process takes a long time to complete.
Note that iOS 11 is still in development, so it isn’t available to all iPad owners just yet. In the fall of 2017, all iPad users will be able to download and install iOS 11.
