Resetting an iPad

Resetting an iPad with Retina display means all your preferences and settings will return to how they were when you first bought it.

But don't worry - your important stuff, like your contacts and calendars, and media, such as your songs and videos, won't be deleted.

Here's how to reset your iPad with retina display:

  1. From the Home screen tap Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Reset.
  4. Tap Reset All Settings.

That's it. All your preferences and settings have been reset.
