At some point it is possible that you should force the restart of the iPad Pro . Due to some problem with the software or defective behavior, among others.
The forced reboot in the iPad Pro models with Face ID and without a home button is different from the process performed in devices of previous generations.
How to force the restart
This method of forcing the restart of iPad Pro applies to the two newer models that possess Face ID. It includes the 11 “screen size and the 12.9” screen size, where there is no Start button. Then, instead of pressing the Home and On button to force a reset, you must press the buttons with a particular sequence.
- Press the button to increase the volume. Let it go.
- Press the volume down button. Let it go.
- Press the power button until your iPad Pro 2018 is restarted.
iPad Pro was forced to reboot when the Apple logo appears on the screen; At that time, the device will start in the usual way in the lock screen and the start screen.
If the forced restart fails, repeat the previous process.

Unification in the restart techniques
As you can see, it is much easier than it seems, but it is not as easy as before. This may seem new to iPad users , but it is actually moving towards the unification of the forced reboot process on other iOS devices.
Therefore, forced restart iPad Pro is now the same for iPhone XS, XR, XS and X Max .
Presumably, this method will be what is carried forward on all future iPad and iPhone devices without a Home button, obviously as long as devices with a start button continue to be sold, the system to perform the forced restart will not be modified.
Another change that is worth mentioning is adjusting to how to take screenshots on the newer models of iPad Pro , which is also different, since there is no Start button on the devices.
