1. App Crashes Implies You Need An iPad Repair
Applications tend to be a troublesome bunch. Sometimes a nasty update may install on your iPad, causing your Apps to crash
What to do in such cases? Close the app completely! The iPad keeps a cache to launch recent or the last opened apps faster. If you have the new iPad without the Home Button, just swipe up and pause in the middle of the screen. If you have an earlier iPad with a home button, double-click the home button.
If you have an iOS 12 device, choose the apps that keep crashing and swipe up to close the app. If you have an earlier iOS, touch and hold the icon of the crashing app. Once it starts to shake, press the X(cross) button on the top left. This would force stop the app and clear it from memory.
If clearing it from memory doesn’t work, the next best thing is to uninstall the app.

In such instances, try to reset your Wi-Fi router. Does the issue persist? Then try to restart the iPad. This may help reset the hardware to detect a better signal.
If you’re still facing trouble after the above step, check your network settings.
For network-specific issues, go to Settings > Wi-Fi, tap on the network you want to forget and press “Forget This Network”. Then try to reconnect to the same network using the correct credentials.
If everything else fails, reset the device. To reset, take a backup of your data, and then go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset all settings
3. iPad Screen Keeps freezing
If your iPad screen is freezing, it could be due to a software conflict or a corrupt memory.
The number one resolution for this is to turn the iPad off and then turn it on again. You can do this by pressing and holding the power button. Swipe the slider to power off. This resets the hardware to its default state before the crash, thereby flushing the memory.
iPad screen still not functioning? ? Force restart the iPad. Press the volume up button once, press and release the volume down button and, subsequently, press and hold the power button till the device restarts.
