Hello, I've been keeping my iPad (2017 model) plugged in most of the time, unplugging it occasionally, try to let it drain completely at least once a month and recharge it (when I forgot got it I did some googling and several places suggested that to "prolong battery life"). Well the past 2 1/2 months I notice if I turn off my iPad to clean the screen (I'll admit sometimes I quickly wipe it off when it's on, but try to turn it off to clean it) -- figure wiping the screen clean either way is fine (if the tablet is on or off). I pretty much have it on 24/7 (use it pretty much like a computer -- although I have a desktop pc, which is a piece of garbage I tend to use my iPad more). Down to the point, I notice just turning it off (when it's fully charged) and wipe off the screen and turn it right back on the battery indicator goes down sometimes down to 88% charged sometimes 96-98% charged. It still charges like normal but I was wondering is there a way to fix this? I have no way to replace any parts (no way to order stuff offline anymore, long story) and no place around here to take it to get repaired (closest place that works on apple devices is 2.5 hour drive away. Is there a way I can fix this on my own? I wanted to try to fix it before things got worse (aka: it stop charging at all). I tried cleaning the whole tablet (wiping it off with a microfiber cloth -- same kind you use on eyeglasses), sometimes I use some special cleaner if I spend the night with my mother (which is not very often, maybe 2 - 3 times a year) it's made for iPads, I never spray it directly on the screen, I spray it on a microfiber cloth that came with the spray and wipe the screen. Also I use this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0050B6CYW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 little tool to clean around the home button, the power and volume buttons and use the little brush on it to clean the area where the charger plugs in. Also, guess this part doesn't really matter but thought I'd throw it in anyway (in case I need to stop doing it), the part of the charger cable that plugs into the iPad itself I normally have it plugged in all the time (occasionally unplugging it for random reasons). I normally just unplug the charger from the outlet is all. Edit: Also checked cable for any kinks or anything that shouldn't be there, cable is perfectly fine. Also I've tried factory resetting it several times (figuring maybe I messed a setting up or downloaded a app/game that could be causing the issue it keeps doing it regardless). Also been taking the case off once in a while (cleaning purposes mainly), but now I have to keep it on, corner of it is cracked and I have no way to replace it at the moment (it's a smart case). Note: It still changes and works perfectly, I just found the slight drain just turning the tablet on and off for less than a minute to clean it was unusual and wanted to check to see if I could fix it in any way so nothing major happens. Thanks for any help! MCRVamprynxx33 (aka Jen) .
