In this final chapter, we're going to be looking at some solutions for the occasional times in the day-to-day use of the iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch where they might start acting a little weird. Maybe an app keeps quitting unexpectedly, or maybe your device isn't connecting to the Internet. If your device is acting strangely, you can refer to this chapter for some things you can try. The first thing I always recommend trying, whether it's an iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, your computer or any other electronic device is to restart the thing. It always surprises me how some people will never try the very simple step of restarting which fixes many temporary problems, before they start getting into all kinds of complicated attempts to fix an issue.
So we've seen this one before. But to restart your IOS device, hold down the sleep wake button for a couple of seconds, until you see the slide to power off slider. Then slide to turn off your device. Wait until you see the screen turn off. The screen might go blank, but for a moment the device will still technically be on. Once your device is completely off, hold down the sleep wake button again and power it back up. And once you're back at your home screen, check to see if that's solved your issue.
