Next, we are going to teach you how to easily identify and remove viruses from an iPad. Apple’s operating system is remarkably safe and it is highly unlikely that you have a virus. But this does not guarantee that nothing will affect the correct functioning of the operating system.
How to fix errors on iPad
- Applications– You should detect the latest apps you downloaded and remove them. Then restart your device and check how it works.
- Safari: In case you have problems with Safari, then it is time to delete the history of it with all the data, something that can cause it to work badly. For this we are going to Settings> Safari> Clear history and website data and we accept.
- Restart the iPad: It may sound like something simple enough, but if you haven’t restarted the device for too long it may be that it malfunctions for this reason and it is not a virus of any kind.
How to know if my iPad has a virus
In short, a virus is a malicious code which can be spread in different ways. It can come with an application that we download or perhaps from a file, even from a website. The possibilities are many.
The chances of getting infected with a virus through the App Store they are practically nil, since Apple, is considerably rigorous in terms of the control of the applications and the content of the same. So it is very unlikely that, if you have a virus, it comes from the Apple store.
We are going to see in detail how to know if I have a virus on my iPad and above all how to remove it if so. It is a process that requires patience, since we have to pay a lot of attention.
How to identify malware on my iPad
The first thing you should appreciate is How does my device work? What we mean is that if you are seeing that something does not work as it should, applications are opened alone, invasive and annoying advertising where there was no before, etc.
Strange things that did not happen a short time ago, even closing applications. Failure to open apps like Safari or the App Store which are already pre-installed and should not present any kind of problem.
In case you have these kinds of problems, you should check when did you start having them and what did you download at that time. If it was an application, you will have to remove it as soon as possible.
My iPad is malfunctioning
In case your iPad keeps malfunctioning and you can’t help it, even after uninstall all the apps you have downloaded. So the best alternative is to do a factory reset.
The factory reset or hard reset what it does is return the device to its default state. This means that you will have the operating system installed from scratch, as if you had just purchased it. This means that all personal files, applications, photos, etc. They will be removed from it.
But, just as it deletes everything we have downloaded, in case of having viruses, they are also eliminated. It is the safest method to erase any virus and regain control of our device.
For this reason, we recommend that you make a backup copy before formatting your iPad, since as we mentioned above, you will lose all your data.
To perform a hard reset you must go to Settings> General> Reset> Reset content and settings, That would be all. This way you will have your iPad factory reset in a matter of minutes. The only thing we recommend is that its battery exceed 70% to prevent it from turning off in the middle of the process.
