Michele from Sierra Madre, CA
Apple iPad

Michele is having issues with her iPad 2. The Wi-Fi is dropping out and her apps disappear and reappear. Is it wearing out? Leo says that what Michele is dealing with is a "Springboard crash." It may be corrupted. She should try to backup her iPad, which she should do regularly using iTunes. Once she's got it backed up, she should do a complete factory reset. It may even need to have a DFU reset.
