enabled share ipad analytics. still no log-aggregated file. power cycling my ipad to see if it generates a file....and restart complete. nope.

what am I doing wrong..

The log is periodic, so you need to be patient :)
On my iPad, it’s about once per day.

enable share ipad analytics, wait 24 hours, should show up after that, the log indeed only generates once a day.

On my iPhone, "log-aggregated" is always there. I don't have to wait on anything. I do have to scroll pretty far down to the first "log-aggregated".

i have a related question. i use my ipad like a desktop computer, usually plugged in to mains. is it better to let the battery discharge to a. certain level and then recharge? or, does using it plugged in all the time cause any degredation of the battery? i get various opinions during searches on the Internet. thanks in advance for your suggestions.

You typically cannot “overcharge” your iPad so leaving it plugged in shouldn’t affect it.

i would like to be able to limit charging to about 80% on my basic iPad. i can do that on my Android smartphone.

EDIT: I just noticed the post, above, where the respondent said, you can’t overcharge an iPad. I guess there is some protective circuitry involved.

Yes. You can't overcharge an iPhone either.

If you can't overcharge an iPad or iPhone why are we told that keeping them at 80% is best for them ? That would mean that keeping them plugged in would be potentially bad for them once they reached 100%.

Because keeping a lithium ion battery at between 20 and 8o% will maximise its life.

It just has to work harder to charge past 80%. I never do that. You ever notice when it gets past 80%, it slows down.

Yes I had noticed, all batteries slow down taking a charge towards the top end. You can see this on a lead acid battery very well, if charging on the bench.
I was merely pointing out the dichotomy between the two statements "you can't overcharge it" and " the battery will last longer if you keep it at around 80%". If you prefer the second statement then it follows that by charging over 80% you are harming the battery's longevity, Therefore you must be doing that battery harm.
