Absolutely fine for emails, basic internet browsing, that sort of thing. But when I connect VPN and try to watch TV is generally says I am not connected to internet. Or just whirls in an irritating fashion.
Not a VPN issue I think as having no problems with same VPN on laptop.
Did the usual - close down everything and restart, cleared cache, uninstalled BBC app and reinstalled, changed servers on VPN.
Any suggestions as to what to try next…in very simple words in English?
I always find that iOS/ iPadOS virtually stops working completely for the month before the public release of a new ‘number’ which given iOS16 is probably in due 5/6 weeks time, sounds about the time where everything goes awry. Which having said all that probably has nothing to do with your issues at all, but it is always something I suggest to people if they start having issues at this time of year. I’m on the dev beta of 16 so I’m not sure how stable 15.6 or whatever it is now actually is, but it’s something to keep at the back of your mind.
was that a complete close down (ie hard reset) - ie pressing the home button on the front and the on-off button on the side together and holding until the the Apple logo appears on the screen?
When it comes back up (usually a minute or two) you may have to re-enter your password (but not always) Make sure you do press until the logo appears on the screen though, otherwise it’s only a soft reset…
I’ve found that usually resolves most connection issues. It should remember all your settings (except sometimes screen icons you have placed in certain places) but they can be easily reconstructed.
you’d have to start from scratch again… it’s the way to go if you want to sell your iPad and not allow the next user access to your data.
But the hard reset is the way to go in this case imo. Factory reset is the “sledge hammer” option to crack a nut.
