Hi All Long time lurker, first time poster. I just bought my first iPad, the iPad Air 2, 64 GB wifi-only, over the weekend (caught the $100 off deal at Staples) and spent a couple days setting it up, including updating the iOS to 8.4 and playing with it. Love it. Everything is great with it except -- it is constantly dropping the wifi connection. It drops it for a second or two and then reconnects. This drop in connection stops any video that is streaming (the biggest issue) and I'll see messages pop up in FB or email that will say something like "currently offline" The short version is I've done everything except a dreaded factory reset. I've googled and see that this is not an uncommon problem that seems tied to iOS 8 but all "solutions" such as resetting network, forget network and reassigning, setting up a static IP address, etc. Have not worked at all. Questions: Should I take back to Staples and exchange? I'll probably be forced to wait for a replacement, they only had 2, one of which I bought. Do I contact Apple or go to the Apple Store? (No Applecare but I've only had this for 5 days) I hate spending this kind of money for something that doesn't work like it should but I also don't want to go through the hassle if this really isn't a hardware issue and is an iOS 8 / 8.4 issue that will be corrected in the next software update. Thanks in advance for advice!
