iPad Charging and Power support
If your battery won't charge or charges slowly or if you see an alert message, learn what to do.
If your device charges slowly or won’t charge
Check your charging cable and USB adapter for signs of damage, like breakage or bent prongs. Don't use damaged accessories.
Use a wall power outlet and check for firm connections between your charging cable, USB wall adapter, and wall outlet or AC power cable, or try a different outlet. Make sure you are using the correct wall adapter for your device.
Remove any debris from the charging port on the bottom of your device, then firmly plug your charging cable into your device. If the charging port is damaged, your device probably needs service.
Let your device charge for a half hour.
Force restart your device:
- On an iPad Pro 11-inch or iPad Pro 12.9-inch: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Press and hold the Power button until the device restarts.
- On any other iPad Press and hold both the Home and Top (or Side) buttons for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.
Let your device charge for another half hour.
If your device still won’t power on or charge, bring your device, charging cable, and charging adapter to our store, or contact us.
If your battery Does not hold a charge for the expected amount of time
If your battery needs replacement, we can repair or replace your iPad for a battery service fee. There's no fee if your battery is defective and your iPad is covered by warranty, consumer law, or AppleCare+. Our warranty doesn’t cover wear from normal use.
If you have AppleCare+ for iPad, it offers replacement coverage if your iPad battery can hold only 80 percent or less of its original capacity.

If your iPad issue isn’t covered, you’ll pay an out-of-warranty fee unless your iPad has AppleCare+ coverage. AppleCare+ includes two incidents of accidental damage. You might be able to use one of those incidents for a cracked screen or for other damage to your iPad. Each AppleCare+ incident has a service fee, as shown.
