Basically as subject. I bought a PP+ from Amazon and plugged my iPad Pro into the USB-C port about 30 minutes ago. When I plugged it in, the battery was at 67%, it then dropped to 65%, then 62, then 60. It has now gone back up to 63, and has been stuck on 63 for around 10 minutes.
Now, obviously this falls into the category of Things That Are Not Supposed To Happen - so what’s going on here, then…? The cable isn’t Anker, but it is labelled as being able to support PD, and I understood that iPad Pros also support PD, am I wrong in that assumption…?
Is it the charger - or my iPad…? This is the first USB-C device I’ve had (with the exception of a shared 2016 MBP); sometimes the battery percentage will be replaced with ‘not charging’, which is why I bought the PP+ (it’s just ticked over to 64%, if iPad Pros DO support PD, this is hardly what I’d call fast charging! 15 minutes per % = 25hrs charge time).
It’s running a beta version of iOS (11.4.6 I think) but I don’t think that’s anything to do with it - is it…? I’d run it down to <5% if I had any faith it’d actually function again! It’s still under warranty, but the nearest Apple Store is a 200 mile round trip away and I’m in no fit state to make the trip.
It’s still stuck on 64%. And now it’s dropped to 63 again! ARRGHHH! 🤬🤯
