    Just bought my first iPad and so far I like it, except… My WiFi internet connection wasn't working well so I looked over at the modem and it's lighting up like crazy. I'm not doing anything online. The only thing I can think of is it's downloading something. I tried looking around in settings and tried turning off everything that seems to be the possible culprit. No good. I turned off the WiFi connection and of course that worked. I have an iMac but I'm a newbie to iPads so maybe I'm missing something simple. Ideas?

    It came loaded with ios9. How can you tell if it's making a backup to iCloud? In Settings > iCloud > iCloud Drive is turned off.

    If you just set up you iPad, it's possible it's downloading. Let it sit for a night and see how it goes tomorrow morning.

    You are on home internet right? Then why are you worried about it downloading?

    I'm not necessarily worried about it downloading. I don't have a great Internet connection so whatever it's downloading is not allowing me to get online. I guess I'll turn the WiFi back on and see what it does.

    Try looking in Settings at Battery and wait a second for the Battery Usage to load to see what's been most active.

    Not the same as backups. There's a section for backups in the settings
