    I normally read the newspapers online each morning, but often, the ipad goes back to homescreen.

    Another problem is, sometimes, I cannot scroll the page, and often have to go back to homescreen and start again.

    Any ideas please

    First, I assume that you have an iPad Air 2 since you posted in that forum - correct? Second, what iOS is installed? Third, what app are you using to read newspapers and is it updated for the current iOS?

    When an app misbehaves, I usually go through the steps below, so see if any of those maneuvers help - if not, then post back. Dave :)

    I will try to answer your questions correctly.

    1-dont think the Mail I read is an app as such, I just Google each morning for the Daily mail.
    2-pretty sure its the ipad 2, nit sure re iOS, where do I find this info.

    Thanks for reply

    If you go to Settings>General>About and look down the list, Version will tell you which iOS version is on your iPad. Below Version is Model, which tells you what iPad model you have. If you Google the model number it will show you which iPad you have.

    Hello again - your iPad model is still not clear - use the model or serial number and input into the lookup box at EveryMac as shown below.

    Did you try the steps that I suggested and if so, any help? Since you are doing these readings in a browser, which one are you using (e.g. Safari) and have you tried others? Also, if you read specific newspapers, they may offer an app which might provide more stability and functions? Dave :)

    Sure, but your other image just had 16G - so you have the 2011 model iPad 2 w/ the 30-pin adapter. Let us know if the suggestions given are of any help.

    Also, when you upgraded the iOS to 9.3.2, did you notice any problems w/ the iPad 2? Some have complained that the older technology was not working as well w/ the newest iOS, and others have had no problems. Dave :)

    Not sure why it showed the 16G, the attachment said "capture" but not to worry.

    Excuse my ignorance, I know the sleep button, and the power button, which is the home button.
    If I do a double tap on sleep button, it just shows the last few pages, no apps.
