So I think I'm having a non-normal experience with my new update... When I went to pair my trackpad to my iPad, I got a message saying that the trackpad could cause wifi and bluetooth problems...weird, I thought, but I proceeded...

Seems like they were right! I can't quite get the trackpad and keyboard (both version 2) to work together. I noticed it when I went to change the volume of a movie I was watching in netflix, and instead the screen dimmed. I tried to pause the movie with the spacebar and it seemed like netflix thought my spacebar was stuck down, flitting back and forth between play and pause.

Turned off the trackpad and all went back to normal.

Anybody else get this? Or get what's happening?

I haven't setup my Magic Trackpad 2 yet, but I did notice that with the latest update to iPadOS 13.4 that I had to do a "reset settings" in order to get my Apple Smart Cover Keyboard to work with my iPad Pro. It was working fine with 13.3. I'm a little apprehensive in setting up my MT 2. I think I'll wait a bit to see what others like yourself are experiencing.

The Smart Keyboard does not use Bluetooth, so it shouldn't be affected.

Which keyboard are you using?

I also have that warning.

So far in several days usage on 13.4 (jumped early with the beta channel), my Magic Keyboard (Latest one) and Magic Trackpad 2 have both been flawless. I haven’t noticed a single issue or connection weirdness, so I’m at a loss as to what they are referring to with that warning..

both are apple...magic keyboard 2, magic trackpad 2. Beyond that, my apple pencil gets disconnected whenever the trackpad turns on. I have to plug it in to start sketching. Removing and re-adding the trackpad solves nothing either!

When I go to Bluetooth Devices on my iPad, it just keeps searching and searching. My Magic Trackpad 2 never shows up in the list.

Tried everything:

Force-restart iPad
Disconnect MT2 from Mac
Restart MT2
Restart Bluetooth on iPad
Disconnect Apple Pencil
Disconnect previously connected Magic Keyboard

Nothing

Anybody else with this problem?

Agreed. I had experienced reset settings work for Apple Pencil (Bluetooth) as well.
