My iPad tablet is in wifi range and I am trying to do a backup. However, I keep getting error message “This iPad hasn’t been backed up in three weeks. Backups happen when this iPad is plugged in, locked, and connected to WiFi“. Clicking OK button but it is not working for me. Now the screen is locked up and no way to access my account and power it down by swiping the slider.
How to Fix iPad locked and stuck on iCloud Backup message issues
* The iPhone also has the same problem. You need to reset the device.
* Holding down on both of the Home and Sleep buttons on your iPad at the same time for about 10 seconds.
When the screen shows up the Apple Logo, ignore the red slider to make a reboot.
* Once finished, go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup, and turn iCloud Backup on and then tap “Back up Now” button.
