iPadOS 15.5 update may stop iPad mini 6 from charging: Apple is investigating
Apparently, a software update may be preventing Apple’s new tablet from charging properly, and the company is investigating the issue.
Software updates are supposed to improve the user experience and make our lives a little easier when it comes to our technology devices; but sometimes things can go wrong and do the exact opposite, and some user reports apparently said something like this happened with the iPadOS 15.5 update on the iPad mini 6.
According to a MacRumors investigation, Apple sent an internal memo to authorized service providers that acknowledged that some users found the iPad mini 6 unable to charge after the latest software update. The source notes that Apple is advising these service providers and retail staff to restart the device as a temporary solution to the problem while the manufacturer continues to investigate what went wrong.
The charging issue, reported by an unknown number of users, is a potentially concerning issue that unfortunately detracts from the excellence of the iPad mini 6, which we gave 4 out of 5 stars in our review and named it “by far the best”. best small tablet. in the market”. .” Particularly impressed with its sleek design, blazing-fast performance, and support for both 5G connectivity and the Apple Pencil, we found it to be a fantastic performer that’s hard to overlook when looking for an easy-to-carry device for work and play.
In the same memo, Apple apparently acknowledged that the problem has nothing to do with the hardware, but is entirely software related, so hopefully a quick fix might fix the problem for good.
There will also be a major OS update for all supported iPads later this year; iPadOS 16 will be released in September and is packed with new features and updates, including updates to the Messages app, a native weather app (finally), Metal 3 support to make gaming better, and a new Freeform app for collaborating with multiple people in one place. Project. Currently in public beta, we certainly hope that all potential issues will be fully resolved before the release of this new iteration of the OS.
