I have iPadOS 15.3 Public Beta on my iPad Pro M1 11”, and all was fine to start with, but I’m now experiencing random lockups which can occur at any time, seemingly in any app.

The only way I’ve found to release the lockup is to hit the power button a few times, and with luck it usually gets back to the Lock Screen. On a few occasions only a reset worked.

I’ve shut down all open apps from the app switcher to see if it’s one particular app causing the lockups, but it still does it with no other apps running.

So just wondering if anyone else has had similar before I send off a feedback report.

I‘m using the most recent Public Beta of iPadOS 15 on my iPad Pro (1st generation), and haven‘t faced any problems yet.

Well I reckon I’ve discovered the reason for my lockups, and it had nothing to do with the latest operating system.

In fact it was my broadband provider who was intermittently dropping my connection, which resulted in any internet connected app I was using at the time ‘appearing’ to lock up.

Since checking with my provider and a reset of my router things have settled down

Good job I found this out before I sent in a feedback report.

It’s a good thing one of these lockups didn’t happen in the middle of an update.

We get drops in the net here quite often I’ve wondered what would happen if it occurred mid update.

If the break was whilst downloading the update then surely it would just carry on after the break was restored.

Not sure that the internet link is needed to prepare the download, but is it needed to verify it?

For the verification process, the iPad needs to be connected to Wi-Fi. I suppose it’s connecting to Apple’s servers to make sure the right software version has been downloaded and will be installed.

The public release versions of iOS and iPadOS 15 have a newer build number that the Release candidates so you should update to the public release version if you’re currently on the iOS 15 beta release candidate. Delete the beta profile and the update will appear. You can add the beta profile again when the next beta is released.

I may have gotten a little carried away making the mini match the pro. . . and maybe I should clean the keyboard, and wipe the table, and dust, and. . . but it was more fun playing around with the home screens.
