How to fix an iPad that keeps asking for your Apple ID password

Apple iPad is among the best tablets you can grab right now on the market. Apple has been improving its iPad lineup since the day one to offer a better user experience. In 2015, Apple announced the iPad Pro with a huge upgrade over other iPad models. The iPad Pro serves as Apple’s plan to replace the traditional PCs.

Apple’s iPad lineup of tablets offers great and smooth performance. However, it still has some issues that may ruin your experience. Like any other device, Apple iPad sometimes becomes a cause of annoyance as it stops working or fails to connect to Wi-Fi network.

A lot of iPad owners have recently reported that their iPad keeps asking for the password. Specifically, they will get a pop-up menu asking them to enter their Apple ID details every time an app download was interrupted.

If you are struggling to deal with the issue, then we are here to help. In the section below, we are going to show you how to fix an iPad that is promoting for your iCloud password. Before trying to do anything, try rebooting your device to see if the problem is fixed. If the problem still persists, then make sure you read on to find out more.

To reboot your iPad, you first need to hold down the Sleep/Wake button until you see the Slide to power off screen. Now just simply slide to turn off the button. Once your device finishes powering off, then hold down the same button to boot up your tablet.

Keep in mind that rebooting your iPad helps fix some major issues like app crashes, AirPlay not working, or rapid battery drain.

  1. Look for infected apps

If the problem is still present, then it’s time to look for infected apps. All you need to do is to scroll through folders and look for all the “waiting” apps. These apps are stuck on the download. If you are asked to enter the password the next time you try to download an app, then you simply need to log into iTunes. Once you do that, the download will continue to run until it’s finished.

Following this method, you should fix the issue. If nothing changes, then try doing it again to see if the problem is fixed. However, if the problem still persists after several attempts, then make sure you read on.

  1. Launch iBooks and Newsstand

Another solution to fix the issue is to open iBook and Newsstand on your iPad. Specifically, the problem may be with books or magazine that cause your iPad to continuously ask for the password.

All you need to do is to scan through all the contents to see if a book or magazine is stuck on the download. Once you find one, you simply need to log into iTunes. Doing so will eliminate the problem. If you come across any issues during the process, then make sure you reboot your device and repeat the process.

  1. Reset your iTunes Store login

Sometimes, it’s your iTunes Store login that causes the problem. To fix the issue, you simply need to log out of iTunes and then log back in. To do this, open the Settings app on your iPad, then select iTunes & App Store and select your Apple ID. After that, tap Sign Out to complete the task. Now just wait for a couple of seconds and log back into your Apple ID. You can reboot your device to apply the change. Once your device finishes booting up, then try downloading an app.

  1. Restore your iPad from backup

If none of the above solutions work for you, then the last hope for success is to wipe your iPad and restore it from backup. Keep in mind that doing so will erase all content from your iPad. So, make sure you create a backup of your device before proceeding.

You can sync your iPad to iCloud or iTunes. To sync your iOS device to iTunes, open iTunes on your computer (make sure you have the latest version of iTunes on your PC). After that, connect your iPad to your computer and select your iOS device in iTunes. Now just simply check the box next to sync with this iPad over Wi-Fi option. Once you are done, click Apply and then select the items you wish to sync.

Now, reset your iPad to its factory default and set it as new. During the process, restore your iPad from your iTunes backup.
