iPad Pro 12" v1 going bad
« on: August 16, 2018, 02:53:25 AM »

I wonder if my iPad is just dying and whether I should just bin it and buy a new one :

wireless networking going funny sometimes
3G no signal sometimes
virtual keyboard going weird occasionally
mic stuffed
battery knackd - so Apple says,
reboots very occasionally, but lots of time when off mains

It is supposed to go off for a repair quote today, there won't be much left by the time they have fixed all of that lot.

It was completely wiped a few weeks ago and os and everything else reinstalled.

I am not sure what I would use for money? There is absolutely no way I am buying second hand ones ever, not after this, and I cannot morally sell it on eBay even.

Just a couple of thoughts...

I have an old 32GB iPad, which behaves oddly if I let the available storage drop much below 2.5GB. I have to be quite ruthless with which apps I have downloaded and the storage used by each.
I only run one or two apps together, and make sure I don't have any running in the background unless really necessary.

If you want to replace your current device, I believe Apple UK run a trade-in scheme so you can get money for it without the moral implications of passing on a faulty unit.

At the end of last week, my iPad Pro 12" v1 was sent back to Apple for assessment. I have not yet heard anything from Apple yet tho.

Apple has sent me a different iPad back. Hoorah.
I wonder if if it is a Pro v1 or a Pro v2, that would be a bit too optimistic. Wonder how I could tell?

Nightmare getting it set up initially because of weirdness concerning the change of mac address and the mac-based multiple layers of WLAN restrictions. (Yes, I  know, I know that isn't real security, but it prevents Mrs Weaver from giving out the wrong kind of credentials by accident.)

Initially I didn't even think that the MAC address might have changed, there was no warning. So could not connect to WLAN at all. Then When I reconfigured things there was still some kind of weirdness, which never got diagnosed. Fixed it by logging in to a guest SSID which was enough just to get the setup going.

Googling the model number/code on the back of the iPad or listed under general/about
