I have had my IPAD mini for over a month now. From the beginning I have had problems with the wifi disconnecting from the network. I thought that this problem would be corrected via a software update. It has not. I have never had this problem with my original IPad. I contacted Apple support today and they wanted me to completely reset my mini to see if the problem was a software problem. They said that if this did not fix the problem then I could go to the Apple store and they could determine if the problem was a hardware related. I have to completely reset up my mini and reload all of my Apps and documents if my mini is reset. It seems to me that this is another Apple quality problem that they are choosing to inconvenience and jerk around their customers rather than acknowledge. At this point, I very much regret purchasing the mini rather than the Amazon Fire. I paid quite a bit more expecting a higher quality device that would be less time consuming for me to transfer my existing apps and documents. I think that Apple is going the way of the US auto industry in the 70s. Putting out poor quality products and denying quality problems. The IPad mini definitely has a wifi disconnect problem that Apple is not acknowleging. I am recommending to my friends that they go with one of the Android tablets. Less money, better quality.
