Have checked all, all are on and allowing apps unless there is a hidden one somewhere? Even the auto update on date, time and region do not work
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 27 days ago

I have that same iPad. I am not certain why yours does not work. Did you restore from a backup or as new?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
I did not restore, just fact reset. Both work Ed fine til last few months. Worked fine in FLA in March. Can be something with this location in Maine? iPhone and Android phone work fine here. Also my HP desk top is fine for location. Just the iPads? Frustrating?
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 27 days ago

I would suggest restoring your iPad.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Is it backed up automatically?
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 27 days ago

You will not want to restore from a backup

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Restore from what? Erase all content and settings? Start all over?
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 27 days ago

Restore the iPad on a computer through iTunes to factory defaults.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
May as well buy a new one!
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 27 days ago

That won't change anything if you restore from the backiup

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Don't think I have a backup
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 27 days ago

Again. I repeat you do not need a back up and even if you had one you could not use it.

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
Confused, you said restore on a computer thru iTunes? Not at all familiar with that or iTunes.
Mac Support Specialist: Justin Johnson, Mac Genius replied 27 days ago

Do you have a computer with iTunes on it?

Ask Your Own Mac Question
Customer reply replied 27 days ago
I will check later, may have it on one, not sure. Will look and get back later, thanks

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
