When turning my ipad 3 on with several weeks of  not using it, I get the small blue pop up saying that icloud hasn't been backed up for 5 weeks and to connect to wi fi with it locked. It stays there and anything I try to do can't get past that screen. It is frozen there. I have tried it on several computers. Nothing will unfreeze it....|turning-ipad-3-blue-screen-icloud-backed-weeks-connect-wi

Hello.  I have an ipad Mini.  I have just charged the battery for the first time and I now find myself locked out.  There is a message saying that the ipad is Not backed Up, etc.  The ipad will not allow me to slide to unlock and there is a symbol or icon to the right of this, rather like a daisy!  The screen is completely locked.  I have tried to switch off but nothing happens.  It just returns to the message on the screen.  What should I do please?...|ipad-mini-charged-battery-time-find-locked-onscreen-message-ipad

Backups happen when this ipad is plugged in, locked and connected to Wi-Fi ". "OK". In the same time I see on the screen the arrow of " slide to unlock" ligthing. But when I use my finger to click on the "OK" and on the sliding arrow to get started, it doesn't help open up the ipad with the apps and finally after 30 seconds it just switches off ?  What can I do ?...|started-message-icloud-backup-ipad-backed-2-weeks-backups-happen
