    Turned on my iPad Air 2 the other day and many (but not all) of the icons on my home screen no longer showed a small capture of the website but instead showed only a generic black and white grid like pattern. The links still work it just looks odd. After a few days they all went back to normal. Yesterday they switched back to the generic grid again...
    What's up with that?

    Just to let you know, this will happen every time you turn on your iPad after it's been turned off. It's a bug in iOS 8 that hasn't been fixed yet. The thread J. A. linked to has the only workarounds that seem to work, at least until you turn off your iPad.

    Thanks folks. Turning off the passcode and resetting did the trick.

    That's the workaround I use. I hope the bug is fixed soon.

    Yeah. It's a real pain to reset all the passwords, thumbprint reader etc.

    Sounds like the better work around is not to turn off your iPad :p

    I had no idea that there was a bug, but now I'm glad I didn't turn mine off ;)
