iPadOS update may cause problems for iPad Air 2


The import of iPadOS 13 runs on older iPads sometimes wrong. After installing the update, significant problems can immediately be seen on the iPad Air 2, as users report: The iPad can no longer connect to encrypted WLANs with iPadOS and the user interface sometimes comes to a halt, even performing simple functions such as opening a App could take several minutes.

The problem apparently does not affect all owners of the 2014 launched iPad Air 2. But the number of error reports is steadily increasing since Apple offers iPadOS also for automatic installation.
