WiFi issue on new iPad Pro 11”
Hi fellow Redditors.
Yesterday I bought a new iPad Pro 2018 11”; WiFi only model, 64GB. I’m having an issue with WiFi when coming back to the device after locking it for a few minutes.
For example, today I locked the device, went into the kitchen for 5 to 10 minutes to finish off cooking my dinner, came back unlocked the device and there was no internet connectivity. The WiFi icon shows in status bar, but Safari doesn’t load websites and apps say I’m not connected to the internet. Disconnecting and reconnecting via Control Centre, turning WiFi off and on again via Settings and even forgetting the network completely and joining the network again didn’t resolve. The only way to get internet connectivity back was to turn the iPad off and on again.
This happened twice yesterday as well. It only happens when the device has been locked for a few minutes. WiFi is working, because I can load websites, etc on my iPhone 7.
Is anybody else having this issue please? Or is anybody else able to replicate it on your device? I’m thinking it could be a software issue i.e. with waking up from a sleep state, but it could just be something wrong with my device!!
Thanks in advance.
