Step 1: Backup Your Data

Before resetting your iPad, it is essential to back up all your data to prevent any loss of important information. You can back up your data using iCloud or iTunes. To backup with iCloud, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud > iCloud Backup and tap “Back Up Now.” If you prefer using iTunes, connect your iPad to a computer, select your device in iTunes, and click on “Backup Now.”

Step 3: Erase All Content and Settings

To reset your iPad to factory settings, go to Settings > General > Reset and select “Erase All Content and Settings.” You may need to enter your passcode or Apple ID password to confirm the action. This process will delete all data on your device and restore it to its original settings.

Step 4: Set Up Your Device

Once the reset is complete, your iPad will restart as if it were brand new. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your device as a new iPad or restore from a previous backup. You can choose whether you want to restore from iCloud or iTunes during the setup process.
