Want to turn off iPad Pro and completely power it down? Maybe you’re going to travel with iPad Pro and want to keep it powered off to preserve battery. Maybe you want to turn it off because you aren’t going to use it for a while. Whatever the case, you can easily turn off an iPad Pro.
To be clear, we’re talking about turning off newer model iPad Pro devices without a Home button.
You may have noticed that trying to simply hold down the Power button does not turn off the iPad Pro. Instead, it will summon Siri or if Siri is disabled, it will do nothing.
How to Turn Off iPad Pro
- Press and hold the Power button and either Volume button at the same time
- Just holding both buttons until you see a “Slide to Power Off” screen. And then drag that slider to the right to turn off iPad Pro
When it turns off, the screen goes black and won’t wake up when touched or tapped until it is powered on again.
This is just like shutting down a computer or any other device. When it’s powered off and shut down it is unusable in that state until it’s turned back on again.
Another option is available in the button pressing method and that is to shut down the iPad or iPhone through Settings, which turns it off as well.
Turning on iPad Pro is as easy as holding down the Power button until you see the Apple logo on the iPad Pro display.
Note that if you press the Power button and Volume Up button but quickly release them, you’ll instead end up taking a screenshot on iPad Pro rather than starting the power down sequence to turn off the device. Therefore you must hold down Power and a Volume button and continue to hold both of those buttons until you see the Slide to Power Offscreen.
Turning off and then turning it back on again will perform a soft restart. If you need to perform a force restart of iPad Pro there follow these instructions instead.
