I updated my iPad to ios 7.1, and now I can't double click on the home button to switch between apps, or to close them. What happened? How can I fix this?

I can't double click on the home button to switch between apps, or to close them. This happened after I updated to ios 7.1

Swiping up from the bottom of the screen with four fingers did not bring up the app preview. A single press on the home button still brings me back to the home screen, but a double press of the home button does nothing following updating to 7.1   Given that, when I added a software home button as suggested by DIAVONEX, I found that all of the apps WERE still open! So thank you DIAVONEX, and you should be careful, bobseufert, as your information was inaccurate.( I did try turning it off and that didn't change anything. ) I don't really want a software home button on my screen, but I guess I will use it until either there is another update to resolve this glitch or someone else identifies a quirky setting that I inadvertently activated...

If no computer, touch the settings button on your idevice and you should see a 1 on that. follow that for the update over wifi or network. give you self some time if doing it with the wifi

  • I updated my iPad to ios 6.1 and now all my notes are gone.  Can you get them back?

    I updated my I pad to iOS 6.1 and now all my notes are gone.  Can you get them back?

    Have you tried restarting or resetting your iPad?
    Restart: Press On/Off button until the Slide to Power Off slider appears, select Slide to Power Offand, after the iPad shuts down, then press the On/Off button until the Apple logo appears.
    Reset: Press the Home and On/Off buttons at the same time and hold them until the Apple logo appears (about 10 seconds). Ignore the "Slide to power off"
    If these do not solve the problem you can restore from a current iTunes or iCloud backup.

  • The home button and the lock button on my ipod tough 4th generation have stopped working. How do I fix this?

    The home button and the lock button on my ipod touch have stopped working. I am now stuck on the page I was on when they were working. Can anyone help me fix this? Thanks

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - You may have to use thei program to get the iPod in Recovery mode
    RecBoot: Easy Way to Put iPhone into Recovery Mode
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - Try on another computer
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • I updated my iPad software to 7.0 and now I can't connect to my network, although I reset and restarted iPad.  Network connection is fine on all other devices

    I updated my iPad 2 software to 7.0.3?(the latest update), and now I can't connect to my network.  I tried reset and restart and that did not work.  I have no network problems with my other devices.

    Try reset all settings

  • Recently my iPad does not consistently respond to a single or double click on the home button and i've had no choice but to turn it off and back on to escape fron the app  i'm using. Can't say it is consistent with any one app. Suggestions are asked for

    My ipad recently seems to be freezing and not responding to home button single or double clicks?

    While this could potentially be a hardwar issue:
    Try a rest: Simultaneously hold down the Home and On buttons until the iPad shuts down. Ignore the off slider if it appears. Once shut down is complete, if it doesn't restart on it own, turn the iPad back on using the On button. In some cases it also helps to double click the Home button and close all apps from the tray before doing the reset.
    If the reset doesn't work, you may need to consider restoring the iPad to factory settings

  • My ipad will not double click on the home button

    press and hold the home and power buttons until the Apple icon is displayed, then let go.

  • I got this iPad as an open box deal on bestbuy, it says the device is no longer eligible for creating a free iCloud account. How do I fix this?

      I got this iPad as an open box deal on bestbuy, it says the device is no longer eligible for creating a free iCloud account. How do I fix this?

    You cannot fix it. Nobody can. There is a limit to how many free iCloud accounts that can be created on one iOS device and the limit is three. Obviously, this device reached that limit which means that this open box iPad was most likely owned by someone else or customers that used theiPad in the store got cute and created iCloud accounts on it and then deleted them.
    So that's why deggie is recommending that you return the iPad to Best Buy and get your money back. You bought a device that should have never been sold to you.

  • I've just updated my iPad to iOS 7.02 and I'm not able now to download new apps nor update the version of the existing ones.

    Hi!
    I've just updated my iPad to iOS 7.02 and I'm not able now to download new apps nor update the version of the existing ones. All of them are "waiting"... for ever.Even, when trying to download a new app, a "dratf" icon appears on the ipad, not the app's own icon...
    I've tried to switch off and on the iPad, disconnect and reconnect the itunes id... and nothing works. Even deleting an app, to download it again, doesn't work. It even doesn't ask for my password!!! (Stays with the small square with a circle around, the one that gets "bolder" while downloading... but it doesn't get bolder now. Just stay...).
    Any suggestions? I wouldn't like to reset the iPad, since I've got data in some apps that I wouldn't like lo loose...
    By the way, I can not either delete some apps with thos "draft" icons... even when the alert that appears when trying to do that is shown and select "ok".
    Thank you in advance!
    Best Regards,
    Carlos.

    Hi,
    Thank you, Once_was_lost, but it doesn't work either. I tried it yesterday as an option (I think you're referring to the options of those apps in the settings app).
    The problems are still here... I've been able to update some apps using the PC itunes (connecting the app to it), but all the other apps are still "wating", and I have two new strange things:
    * I cannnot remove the apps that are downloading (at least those that are supposed to be downolading ) . But I could remove one from the PC... and now there is an "empty line" in the "to update apps list".
    * Stranger: though I cannot download new apps or music from the store, I can do in-app purchases!!! In that case, I'm asked for the password and the item downloads. How is it possible?????
    I can download with the same user in the PC, in the iPhone... but not in the iPad .
    I'm getting mad...

  • I updated my iPad to 8.0.2 and now I'm stuck in waiting when I try to update my apps. How can I fix this?

    I updated my iPad to 8.0.2 and now I'm stuck in waitiIng when trying to update apps. hiw do I fix this?

    I Have posted this boilerplate over and over again here. Hopefully something in here will help fix your "waiting" apps issue.
    1. Tap the "waiting" icon and see if you can pause it. If it does pause, then tap it again and see if it will resume. If that works, repeat the same steps for each "waiting" icon.
    2. Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons.
    3. Make sure that you do not have a stalled download in iTunes - if you have a download in there that did not finish, complete that one first.
    4. If that doesn't work - sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again.
    Settings>iTunes & App Store>Apple ID. Tap your ID and sign out. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Go back to Settings>iTunes & App Store>Sign in and then try to update again. Tap one waiting icon only if necessary to start the download stream.
    5. You can also try deleting the waiting icons - tap and hold down on an icon until it wiggles - the tap the X on the icon to delete it. Then try to download again. Apps may also be able to be deleted in Settings>General>Usage>Storage if you cannot get the X to pop up on the icon.
    6. You can try resetting all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your device settings again.... All of the settings in the settings app will have to be re-entered.

  • HT4623 I updated my ipad to iOS 6 yesterday and it worked immediately after update.  I left home for about 4 hours and when I returned I was uable to get my ipad to come up. I only have a black screen.  When I press the on off button nothing happens.

    I updated my ipad to iOS 6 yesterday and it worked immediately after updating my ipad worked as it should.  I left and came back in about 4 hours and have a black screen.  When I press the on off button nothing happens.  Help.

    Assuming that the battery isn't empty (and it can take up to 15 minutes of charging before it will respond), then have you tried a reset ? Press and hold both the sleep/on/off and home buttons for about 10 to 15 seconds, after which the Apple logo should appear - you won't lose any content, it's the iPad equivalent of a reboot.

    Hey BlueEyedDude,
    Thanks for the question. I’m sorry to hear about your iPod nano! If you believe you have isolated the issue completely to hardware, you can learn more about servicing your device at the following link:

    https://www.apple.com/support/ipodnano/4th_5th_generation/
    If you do decide to service your device, you’ll want to make sure all of the music and information is backed up. If you regularly sync your device with a computer, this music should be on the computer. If not, you can learn about what purchases you can transfer from the iPod to a computer:
