Before Apple officially launched their iPad Pro, we could read many rumors about its design, display size, features, abilities, and the price. It was one of the main topics in the tablet world for a really long time, and it still is. While some would say it’s too bulky, the others praise the size of the screen, because now they can do so many things and complete a lot of tasks on your iPad, which makes it ideal for those who use it for work. There have not been many complaints about its performance, but one of the issues that popped up is related to Wi-Fi as some people reported the problem saying “iPad Pro can’t connect to Wi-Fi”. See the potential solutions below, and try them out.
