Way 2. Fix Blue Screen on iPad by Hard Restart

If your iPad stuck on blue screen for a long time, a hard restart, also known as force reboot, might be helpful. Actually, anytime your devices get stuck in other problems, you can always try a hard restart to make it resume to normal. To initiate a hard restart, simply hold the Home button and the Power button at the same time until the iPad reboots.

Resetting your iPad to factory settings will restore it to its original state. In this way, your iPad will be free from viruses, malware, and software errors when it experiences blue screen on iPad. Will iPod data be lost? Yes, your personal data and settings will be erased. I'm not saying you shouldn't try this method. Remember you should look before you leap.

Step 1. Reboot into your home screen when the blue screen flashes on iPad. Open the Settings app.
Step 2. Tap General → Reset → Erase All Content and Settings.
Step 3. Put your password in if prompted and initiate the factory reset. As soon as the restart is complete, your iPad will be brought back to the welcome screen.

Way 4. Fix Blue Screen on iPad in Recovery Mode

iPad 2 blue screen of death occurs more frequently than other models. In these cases, some users successfully fix the iPad blue screen by putting it in Recovery Mode.

Step 1. Your iPad should be turned off. Connect it to your computer and open iTunes.
Step 2. Hold down the Home button.
Step 3. Release your finger from the Home button as soon as you see the message Connect to iTunes. iTunes will now display an alert saying that the iPad has been detected in recovery mode.
Step 4. Look through this post if your iPad is disabled to connect to iTunes.

Note: The blue screen on iPad Pro 2019 can be fixed by connecting your iPad to your PC. And then opening iTunes, pressing and releasing the Volume Up and the Volume Down button respectively. Finally pressing the Side button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.

Way 5. Fix Blue Screen on iPad by Asking Apple Official Support

As I mentioned in the first section of this article, the blue screen may result from hardware issues or bugs of iOS. While a large number of similar guiding articles tell users to iTunes restore under this circumstance, I cannot agree with this method, because it leads to a complete data loss but will not necessarily resolve the blue screen. Why take risks while the outcome cannot guarantee success?

Therefore, it is a lot safer to resort to official assistance, where professional technicians can replace the malfunctioning hardware or conduct other reliable rescuing plans.

Section 3. The Bottom Line

In most cases, the blue screen is caused by software or iOS malfunctions instead of hardware. Therefore, before you ultimately decide to replace certain hardware, I recommend you to use TunesKit iOS System Recovery, with which you don't have to waste time energy, and time identifying the problems and solving them by yourself. We hope you found this information useful. If it is, please share this post and enlighten your friends and family.
