After updating to iOS 7 in my iPad Mini, I found two problems:
- It couldn’t join a known network automatically, even if the “auto join” option is turned on.
- The WiFi connection would drop when the iPad is kept locked for some time, maybe half an hour or even in 5 minutes after the auto lock.
As per the Apple care suggestions, I restored the iPad and the 1st problem was resolved but the second problem remains. I have tried with network reset too.
Yesterday I was downloading Dead Space which would take near about 45 minutes with my home WiFi to download, and I kept the iPad idle after almost 20 minutes, I unlocked it to check back and the WiFi got dropped and the download was interrupted. At last I had to disable the auto-lock and download the game, while keeping it unlocked. So, is this a hardware problem or a bug in the operating system?
Here’s some further information: While in iOS 6.1.3, sometimes there were interrupts in downloads in spite of having a relatively good internet speed. Please help me. My iPad is still under warranty till Feb 2014.
