    I have a iPad 3rd Generation.

    I've noticed my iPad is having connection problems. I don't believe there's any problem with the internet network it's self.

    I went to Florida early August and it refused to connect to the hotel's internet. I always put in the username & password correctly. My mom had been able to connect with her iPad and she has a newer iPad.

    I could connect on my Galaxy S7 edge phone.

    and recently, I've noticed it disconnects from Facebook sometimes when I open the app. Or I'll use messenger app on the iPad and it didn't send the message to the person until later after I started talking to the person by using Facebook on my computer.

    Just wondering if this is sign that I need to buy a new iPad.

    Try resetting the network settings. Or rebooting the iPad.

    I'm still facing some internet issues on the iPad. Should I reset the entire iPad?

    Also...when I was looking at apps in the app store with 42% battery, the iPad restarted itself.

    You can try restoring on iTunes to get a clean version of 9.3.5. It will be wiped and set up as new. Worth a try.

    It's taking a real long time to update iCloud settings. considering there's only 5gb storage space in the iCloud.
