In recent days, many users have reported that their sixth generation iPad Mini (the latest released by Apple) is suffering from several problems, particularly related to charging. These problems seem to have appeared when the Apple brand had just launched the update to iPadOS 15.5.
The problem seems so serious that Apple would be conducting an internal investigation to try to understand where the problem may well come from. An internal memo to the apple brand has circulated on this subject. The latter explains what to do if a customer presents an iPad Mini that refuses to charge once the update has been completed.
Apple therefore explains that the easiest way is to restart the tablet using the force system. This temporary fix should resolve the issue before Apple releases a more comprehensive fix in an upcoming update.
A software problem that Apple must fix quickly
In the memo it is clearly stated that replacing the battery will not solve the problem and that it is only a software problem which will be solved in the next few days by Apple. People in the Apple Store or in approved third-party stores are asked to offer this temporary solution, explaining that the problem will not last over time.
While the software solution is being researched on the Cupertino side, many users have contacted the Apple brand to tell them about this problem. The firm said it was very involved in resolving the latter and that things should not take a long time.
So the best advice we can give you if you have a sixth-generation iPad Mini is to wait a bit before updating to iPadOS 15.5.
