    I have a first gen iPad Pro. The os is updated. However, the problems I’m experiencing are....

    1. When I open the mail app, it opens with “mail boxes” on the left, “all inboxes” and then the last opened email on the right. I’ve asked about this before and it seems to not have any fixes.....

    2. Siri will chime in for no reason at all...she will wake you up when you’re trying to sleep. (right now I shut the iPad off at bedtime.

    3. Sometimes, while using Safari, it will only display half of a web page. If I force close safari, it will be fine. Then at an importune time, it will do it again.

    I’ve tried clearing out all the web data, re-booting the iPad. Don’t know what else to do....

    I have an iPad Pro (1st generation, 12.9”), and my Mail app does the same as yours, so this seems to be a feature of the new software, as I didn’t notice that with iOS 12.

    I don’t have the same problem with Safari, though. Mine is running iPadOS 13.3 Public beta without major problems. Did you also try closing the app (open the App Switcher, swipe the app upwards)?

    If you don’t like the new Mail feature, tell Apple about it:
    Feedback - iPad - Apple

    They might consider rearranging the Mail app, if more users send the same feedback about that feature.

    thanks for the reply. I do have the latest update 13.2.2 installed. I just don’t see the need (for me) having the mail app open the way it does. A bit annoying. I’ve tried closing the apps and all, force closing them and rebooting the iPad, but nothing seems to work. I know there are still some bugs and I am trying to be patient with the hopes of another update that will take care of these (minor) issues.

    You’re welcome.
    It’s more likely you’ll get these bugs fixed if you report them to Apple.

    Siri bugs me on my iPhone, I keep it face down to keep her from waking up and bugging me. L

    I completely disabled Siri years ago, since the novelty wore off in a few days and I couldn't think of a single benefit that outweighed the loss of privacy. The sky has not fallen.

    Hi, J.A. Can you please tell us exactly how to make such a report? I just purchased a new iPad Pro 12.9 that displays an annoying line along the bottom edge of virtually all screens that I would like to report to Apple in case it has no hard-coded purpose.

    I’d suggest contacting Apple Support. Use this link and select the correct topic:
    Get Support

    Depending on your choice, there are two or three possibilities: “Chat”, “Bring in for repair”, or maybe even “Talk to Apple Support now”.

    Many thanks J. A. for your suggestion, my subsequent experience with Apple Support was a half-hour or more of pure pleasure. I have never experienced such a streamlined and complete telephone service in my entire life! Apple has it nailed!
