Those apps have not been removed from your iPad, they just won't open in iOS 11.
Every time you opened one of these apps while on iOS 10 you would have seen a pop up stating that the app would not work with future versions of iOS.
I would consider that a clear warning.
Those apps are 32 bit only apps and Apple now requires apps to be 64 bit compatible. The developers of those non-working apps have known about this problem for over two years and have either chosen not to update the apps to 64 bit or have abandoned them.
Apple is not responsible for maintaining app compatibility with the latest version of iOS. The problem, therefore, is with the app developers in question who haven't updated their apps, not with Apple. Have you tried contacting the developers of those apps?
They did give you the complete list of all apps on your iPad that would not work with iOS 11. You posted photos of that list in your first post. If you didn't see the pop up warnings then you haven't used any of those apps in well over a year, since that list has been in Settings>General>About since September 2016.
It's not the fault of Apple that those apps will no longer work. Apple did not make those apps non-workable, it was the developers who persistently ignored Apple's advice to update their apps since 2015 that did that.
I discovered today in IOS 11.2.1 that nothing in my reading list is available for offline reading. If it was only some of them, I'd think that I saved them to the reading list then moved off the website before it had a chance to be saved offline, but it was everything. I deliberately tried pages that I know I've previously read offline. I was away from home with no wifi.
When I returned home I switched the iPad to aeroplane mode - now a few items are available, but many still aren't (which makes no sense - being connected to wifi shouldn't make any difference, because the iPad's in AM, and it's still offline, wifi or not.
I haven't updated my iPad Pro yet, and I tried switching on AM on that - all of my saved articles are available offline.
I saved some sites to the list on both devices - back in AM, all the newly saved sites are available offline on both devices.
Does anyone have an explanation please?
Have you made sure that “Automatically Save Offline” is turned on in Settings Safari?
I’m not sure I followed what you did? To make sure, do you understand that turning on Airplane Mode turns off all the iPad’s radios, so that there is no connection (wi-fi, bluetooth, or cellular) possible? Turning it on would be a good way to test if content is available offline (locally). It would not force any content to download just because it had been turne on. Turning it back on would not necisarily start content downloading, but Safari’s background tasks should eventually kick in.
If I had to guess, the sites you added to the reading list while away from your home wi-fi did not download due a slow connection or maybe a limitation of the cellular connection (if you have one). They downloaded automatically after you came home, somewhere inbetween the turning on/off of Airplane Mode, probably while you had Safari open (or in the background). Depending on the size and content of hte sites, this could have taken a while.
Thank you for your help.
The setting in Safari was already turned on, and turning it off & on again had no effect.
However, after several hours of fiddling around, restarting, deleting the reading list and re-saving it, etc, the problem is fixed. I don’t think it was actually anything I did, I think it was a technical glitch that righted itself. It was too random and nonsensical in what was saving, and what wasn’t, and some items were accessible sometimes and then unavailable next time I turned the wifi off.
Just happy it’s now working!
Glad it’s working.
