IPad Pro problems
Apple acknowledges mysterious shutdowns
Some iPad Pro owners have noticed some strange behaviour in their new 12.9in tablets. Normally when you charge a device, unless the battery has completely died, the screen remains responsive. But some iPad Pros are completely freezing, then dying, after a recharge.
Apple knows about the problem, but hasn’t said why it’s happening. There doesn’t seem to be a real fix for it, either – at least not yet. The company published a support document on Thursday advising Pro users to force restart their tablets to bring them back to life, but that’s not really a long-term solution, because the issue is ongoing.
