My 12.9" iPad Pro (2nd gen - with home button), has started losing its wifi connection every time it turns off (even if only for a second or two). Previously, it would reconnect when I would reawaken it from sleep. Now, everytime I wake it, I have open the Settings app and reconnect to the same network it was on. It usually reconnects without me having to re-enter any credentials or do anything else.
I have tried turning off my VPN to see if that changes anything. It hasn’t changed anything.
I have tried testing it with wide-open wi-fi (where you don’t need any credentials). It doesn’t seem to have an effect.
I have done a hardware reset (with the power and volume buttons).
I can’t correlate this starting with any software update. The iPad is running version 12.4.1 and it was happening before this update was installed. I have never loaded beta software on it.
Has anybody else noticed this happening or have other ideas for what could be happening? I am contemplating a full factory reset and reloading everything, but would rather not have to go through that setup again (even though it is pretty simple with iCloud backups nowdays).
Thanks in advance!
