IPad Mini 6 owners who installed iPadOS 15.5 have started reporting problems with their tablets. It’s all about charging, which started to fail after the update.

It is specifically related to charging problems that appeared after installing iPadOS 15.5. Users report (via Mac rumors) that no matter what power cord or adapter is used, the battery in their device will not charge. According to some, even a factory reset does not fix this error. Normally, this would be considered a hardware defect, but many people are affected.

In addition, Apple accepted the complaints and issued an internal note to authorized resellers stating that even replacing the battery won’t solve charging issues, which clearly indicates a software defect. So what do you do in such a situation? In the memo, Apple advises store employees and service providers to ask users who reported a problem to restart their devices.
