Randomly (mostly at the end-of-the day) my 2020 iPad Air “defaults” to Force Touch mode (long press) I’m attaching a video screenshot below. Restarting my iPad (even locking my screen to turn off Touch ID) temporarily fixes the problem only to return about 24-hours later.

I am running the latest version of iPadOS 16.2 but this problem accord even before iPad OS 16. I’ve also done a complete fresh reinstall and the problem still occurs. I’m at a loss. Any ideas?
