Of course not. The last device I bought was an iPad 2 at around £130 and has served me well for over a year. The successor at £80 is superior but looks and acts like a complete whore.

Dolls will be proud. :D

I've got a small issue in that the iPod6 isn't working with the Google Home app to play content to the Chromecast device. The old iPad does this without complaint.

Does your iPad not back up photos to the cloud Dolls? Think it likely does, so you should still be able to get your photos.

As for the iPad itself Crumbs will know better than me, but you could try holding the power button in for say ten seconds. That usually resets most stuff.

You've not had it that long have you?

The iPad reset (at least the one I've been shown) is to start one of the apps, then immediately push the side button until the 'slide to power off' indicator comes on the screen, then push the front button.
The above is supposed to clear the cache memory and stabilise the device. Seems to work here.

Are you trying to charge with the iPad on, or off ?

Both iPads here come on when first plugged in, but I always turn them off to speed up the charging.

Well I assume it was on! I haven't charged it for couple of years! I got the battery sign but it just didn't move (or wasn't charging)

Then whilst the charger is plugged in, turn the iPad off.

Then leave for a couple of hours.

I did find the original lead that came from Apple had to be replaced after a few months of use, the end connector eventually fractures inside.

Let us know how you get on. I can post another lead (and charger) to you if they turn out to be duff.

Can't do same with iPad though, my daughter uses it more than me.

https://www.macrumors.com/2017/03/07/ap ... 7-patched/

Apple says its initial analyses indicates that many of the exploits detailed were patched in the latest version of iOS, and that it will continue to patch identified vulnerabilities. The Cupertino company closes by saying that it always urges users to download and install the latest version of iOS to ensure that they have the most recent security updates.


Where are Google and Microsoft in speaking up for their users?


Anyone thinks any company, Apple or otherwise, id going to stop the usual suspects from having backdoors into the devices of the masses is naive.

Got a prompt on the iPod 6 (Touch) to update to 10.3 last night, which includes improvement on finding lost - wireless -headphones.

Is it worthwhile upgrading for other features ?

Btw I can't seem to turn the screen sideways to view the forum horizontally on this device, but the much earlier/bigger iPad does this no problem. Is there a setting in the small unit to enable this (is there a gyroscope inside ?)
