    My iPad had been spinning a lot lately. Do you know why it does even after doing clear it the hard reset. It stops temporarily until I do other stuff. I uploaded my screenshot recording to YouTube.

    I had issues with my iPad last night while watching Hulu. Everything else seemed a bit slow too. I did a hard reset on the iPad, which didn't help. I then restarted the router, which helped just a tad. I then completely powered off the iPad for several minutes. That seemed to help a bit. I kept getting error messages from Hulu as well. I then gave up and went to bed. This morning, things seemed much better. I'm not sure what the issue was.

    What does that mean. Is that a hardware issue?

    Could be either, why not force close all apps and webpages, hard reset again,and then try Youtube, make sure everything is up to date also. Check incoming signal with phone, yadda,yadda.
    How old is iPad,and what iOS are you on ?

    check broadband mbps with ookla tester f’rinstance, check your wifi with whatever tester you like, plenty in App Store I should think.
    Or, google your problem, there is far more info than I can give you out there ! Tip; look for recent articles, there is a lot of obsolete info out there.
    I suffered this problem for some time, and I think it was only really fixed by an iOS update in the end, but try everything.

    I just got home from work and checked. It’s not spinning anymore as of right now. I don’t know what the deal is.

    Whatever I seem to do it starts back up. When I went into the App Store to check for the tester app it started back up again

    Watching the video, I'm not sure what you are complaining about. You mean the spinner when you go into Settings / Battery? Both my iPhone X and iPad Mini 4 do that every time. That's standard behavior as far as I am concerned; it's been that way for as long as I can remember.

    Neither my XS nor my iPad gen 5 exhibit this behaviour. So your wifi shows three bars ?

    Knock on wood, I think I have figured it out. I went through the settings that were turned back ON when I updated to 14.0.1 My Wi-Fi goes between 2 to 3 lines even on my phone

    I don’t know if this had anything to do with it or not but I’d turned OFF iPad analytics section. I also turned off some app updates and some background refresh. I also tend to use my phone a lot more than my iPad Why is my iPad spinning-img_0084.jpg
