He tried all sorts of recommendations from various sources and none of them worked in the first place.
Later, he went to Apple’s local store nearby, but the personal there was not capable to activate the IPad nor recover its data. Some iPad users said that they were capable to solve the bug by linking their gadgets to the iTunes app, while others affirmed they performed a complete restore on their tablets.
People who have older iPad version, particularly iPad 2, might want to delay to upgrade to iOS v9.3 until the issue is solved. If the users proceed with the upgrade, they have to first link to iPad to iCloud or a computer so all information is stored in the case of a sudden glitch between different software.
