So I did some searching about this and the options seem pretty varied. Wondering if anyone here has had any experience with this. My iPad Pro is stuck with a black screen. I can see the backlight turn on when I press the home button, I hear the lock sound and can unlock it. Heck, I can even take normal screen captures and they show up in iCloud Photos. Before I go nuking this thing I figured I'd see what others have encountered.

iOS 14 beta 3
I do have an iCloud backup but not a local machine one.

Well... I think it is dead.

I went ahead and held down the power and home button "until I see the logo" but never did. I did see the backlight change a few times and the iPad show up in Finder as being in DFU.

So I told it to restore and I watched the backlight go on and off a few times. When I go to turn it on after letting it do it's thing I still end up with a black screen but the backlight on. Now I can't even get anything from it because it won't be activated.

Buy a new iPad or repair this one?

Just got done chatting with Apple Support. They condemned my iPad as I expected they would. They want me to pay $450 to have it "repaired".

I just can't bring myself to do that. When do iPads normally get released? October right? I think I can wait until then to buy the new model.

Maybe.

Well poop. Sorry yours crapped out.

Not sure the release cycle but it's out there.

What do you use yours for, mostly?

Pretty much everything I used to use my laptop for. Weather, picture management, games, network management, email, web etc....

I docked my MBP so now I don't unplug it much and use my iPad for everything away from the desk.

I just ordered a iPad Pro 12.9" (64GB, Wi-Fi + 4G LTE, Space Gray, Previous Gen) from B&H deal zone for $670. I added the new Pencil too.

While I was hoping for a current generation, it is a pretty big step up from my now dead 10.5". I also need to figure out what to do with my old keyboard cover for the 10.5" since it is relatively new.
