    Just downloaded the iOS7.0.3 update and now can't get the iPad to turn on. All I get is a brief screen with an iTunes logo and the picture of a cable connecting to it. I'm at work, without any cable. How do I get back to my apps? Any ideas?

    That's DFU mode... need to connect to a computer with iTunes and go from there.

    Now it wants to restore to factory settings. That's a disaster. Any way around it that you know of? Thanks for your help!

    Go ahead and restore as new to factory settings. I am sure you backed it up first and it won't hurt anything. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain if it works.

    Not really a disaster if you set up iCloud back-ups and/or iTunes wifi sync... between the two of them, you can restore from the last back-up and sync to iTunes and be pretty close to right back where you were at the last available back-up & sync.

    I can't keep my IPhone 5 charged. It seems as if I get a 97% charge and then battery starts to de-charge if I leave it plugged in to complete the charge. It takes a day to recharge and cannot use a car charger at all. Any suggestions? I've used different charging cords and adaptors

    Use just apple chargers .. Also when it gets to 97 unplug it and do a hard reset hood home and power when it reboots it will prob show 100

    If you have been backing up the iPad whether through iCloud or manually with iTunes then after the restore you will have an option to restore from the last backup. If you haven't been backing up which I know there are many people who don't then it's going to be more difficult and you will probably lost stuff. Try holding down the home button and the power button until the screen goes blank. Then hold the power button until it turns back on and see if it will boot normally. Sometimes for whatever reason the device might end up in DFU mode.
