Strange behavior from my iPad Mini, please help

iOS & iPadOS

As I have mention before I have the latest ipod touch and the mini ipad 2 retna the latest generation. so lately I was playing more with my ipod touch and as I was going to play with the ipad, this is what happebn. You know you press the left buttun at the left corner, in my case I don't put a passcode number so it tells me the time right? than I press home and you know, all the regular stuff appear, camera and so on. and right after this letter I will try again, but as soon as I touch thre screen to find the apps I want, it start doing the click click and it seem to do something, sometime an apps will open by itself and start to play music and it end by speqach off, but it seem to offereing all kind of stuff that is way to advance for me. I just do basic stuff, if it still do this do you thing that resseting the ipad to factury setting would fix this? I just don't know what I would have done for this to happen. thank you

I wouldn't restore to factory default just yet. Try doing a hard reset by holding down the power and home button for 10 seconds or so. It may bring up something that says "slide to power off." Double tap that, and it should power off. It might take a little bit for it to come back up, but hopefully it'll act normal again when it does. If that fails, yes, I would wipe it and restore from iCloud.

Well, I have had the same issue with my old iPad 4. Nothing worked until I replaced the digitiser (the front glass screen). Resetting will not be helpful. Still one thing you can do before thinking of replacing the digitiser is making sure that the screen is clean and if you have a screen protector installed try to replace it with another one and see if the problem goes.

good evening. I am not very good at this and I didn't know how to just reply to the person. I don't know witch one of the 2 things I did fix the problem but this is what happen, you know on the screen of the mini ipad, I have a sheet to protect the screen, and I have notice , I don't know why I didn't before, but some how the sheet sticker stile, was some what bubbly or it did feel like this, so I thought to take it off and with the same kind of product that I clean my cd or dvd, with a paper towel, I gently clean it and made sure to dry it and than I saw in my e mail what one of the member have suggest to do, so I decided to do that to. and when I did as normal push the upper right button, it told me the time and I have push the home butgtun, and yes it did work, it was no longer acting up. I was pretty upset about it, and I guess I had kind of pushing the issue away by telling myself, you have your ipod touch, take a brake but the people in the house started to ask me what was bothering me so I guessed it started to show, so that is why tonight I thought to deal with it while everyone is sleeping and yes I am so happy, so I don't know if maybe it could have been durty but I did what sorry I forgot your name but I did what you told me so one of the 2 did work and that is what count. thanks.
