    Hello iMore,

    In the event that you need to hard reset your iPad which isn't a bad thing to do weekly IMO you simply hold down the power button and the home button until you see the apple logo, then release. Lately I have seen a bug in iOS 7 that hides recently downloaded applications, a hard reset seems to resolve this. Speaking of which are there any other use cases for a hard reset that anyone would like to share?

    Sometimes a hard reset is useful when your device experiences issues that cannot be solved in the settings. For example, if you are having network connection issues and you do not wish to reset network settings a hard reset can potentially solve the problem.

    In my experience, a reboot is the first step in troubleshooting an i-device.
