    If it's just the apps that you've downloaded that are crashing then try downloading any free app from the store and then re-try them - the free app can then be deleted


    If it's all apps, including Apple's built-in ones, then close all apps completely and then do a reset : from the home screen (i.e.not with any app 'open' on-screen) double-click the home button to bring up the taskbar, then press and hold any of the apps on the taskbar for a couple of seconds or so until they start shaking, then press the '-' in the top left of each app to close them, and touch any part of the screen above the taskbar so as to stop the shaking and close the taskbar.


    Reset : press and hold both the sleep and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds (ignore the red slider), after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    I have the same problem on my iPad 3. I tried to download a free app, then every other apps start working. But is there any other way to fix the problem? I don't have a 4G, so how about the time I don't have a wifi nearby? How can I fix it?

    Yep, I have the same problem with my iphone and ipad ever since the update. Its also having trouble staying connected to a wieless connection and finding some. What the heck. I didnt read all the post or research this yet but does apple know about this and are they doing anything about it?

    I've done all the things everyone has suggested above and my IPad 1 (first generation) keeps crashing to the desk top! It doesn't matter what app I am in at the time it just crashes! I've been told by an Apple Employee that this is typicle and that there isn't much anyone can do! I'm not certain I agree with that answer so that is why I'm here asking the questions again?

    Have you tried completely restoring your iPad to its factory settings. After my iPad not working for a week, I tried that, and so far its been working.

    Clear your cookies, cache and history (settings-safari- press clear cache and cookies)

    Close all your opened apps (double tap the home button. Beneath the desk top all your opened apps will appear "wiggling", close them by pressing the X)

    Check the all settings.

    If above suggestions did not help, you might consider rebooting or hard resetting your ipad. Simultaneously press the home button and the on- off side button till the screen gets blank. After a few seconds, reopen your ipad. When i did this last step my problem in crashing got solved. Previously downloaded apps which did not appear on my desk top had appeared too.
