Hi there, I am Cris and will be glad to assist you. Sorry to hear about your issue.

What you can do is a Factory Reset of the iPad through recovery mode. You would need to use a PC with iTunes installed, would you like to proceed I can provide step by step instructions?

I am so confused now ......why I need a lawyer......I don't know what to do. Cancel everything. I'll just go to the apple store.

Must have been confusion from the site. However you have reached the right category I am experienced Mac tech that can assist you with your issue.

Remote session isn't very necessary for this issue. I am not able to remote into an iPad or a PC or Mac.

I will provide you instructions on how to do the reset. Give me a moment to list it.

Hi! I am Justin. I have accepted your request for Remote Assistance.

Do you have a computer you can plug your iPad into?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Ours is a Chromebook, how does it connects

Do you have any other computer. Windows or Mac?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.

Do you have a friend with a Mac or a PC. We will need to plug it into to a Windows or a Mac to continue. The Chromebook is not really a "computer".

We will have to get back to you.
