Some FAQs About Network Reset

At this point, we would like to answer some of the questions about this procedure.

Will the Network Reset delete my files and photos?

No. None of your files, photos and personal data will be deleted. But this will surely delete the existing Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connections if you have any on your iPad.

Is the iPad network reset going to reset my network as well?

No. Only the network connections in your iPad will be deleted. Your router or network configuration will never be reset.

Will this procedure fix the mobile data issue with my iPad?

It might fix the problem as long as there’s no issue with your account or provider’s network. The thing about mobile data when it acts up is that there are a lot of factors to consider and most of the time, only your service provider can help you, especially if the problem is on their side. However, if the problem is minor and only with your iPad, then resetting the network settings might fix it.

And that’s all for now, folks!
