How to put a 2020 iPad Pro into recovery mode

I always like to restore my new iOS devices to a fresh iOS install when I get one from the factory, but like the iPhone X it’s not obvious how to do this on the 2020 iPad Pro.

You’ll need your Mac to connect your iPad to.

  1. Power down your iPad by holding down the power button and volume up button at the same time then swipe to power down
  2. Once powered down hold down the power button and volume up at the same time and plug in the USB-C cable
  3. Keep holding until you see the restore image on your iPad

The Mac will then ask you to click restore and it’ll go ahead and download the latest iOS version and restore the iPad as new.
