Recently I replaced my aging iPad Mini 4 with a 64 GB Space Gray Mini 5 and for the most part it’s been a superb upgrade—I love the performance jump, the familiar design (which I already liked anyway), and the more advanced display, with which I have personally had no issues. Unfortunately there are a couple of pretty bothersome issues I’ve been experiencing on this new device, primarily one in which the iPad doesn’t seem to register that it’s connected to a power source until the Lightning cable is unplugged and re-connected multiple times. Last night, for example, I plugged the included adapter and cable into the Mini to charge and when I awoke this morning I was miffed to find that no charging whatsoever had taken place overnight although everything was connected properly (and before anyone asks, yes: the outlet into which the adapter was plugged as well as the adapter itself do work—I use them to charge my iPhone without issue). The other more minor issue is that at times “phantom” taps and touches appear to register on the display both connected to and away from charging, but nothing of significance seems to happen as a consequence. I’m not sure whether these issues occur at the hardware or at the software level, but since I did purchase AppleCare with the iPad I will probably have it replaced unless somehow they happen to be addressed through iOS updates. Has anyone else been experiencing these or any other issues with their new Mini(s)? Let me know.
