Does your iPad Pro randomly wake from sleep? Here's the fix

Does your iPad Pro wake itself randomly, such as when being carried around in a bag? You’re not alone.

The issue is caused by the Smart Keyboard, and the fix is simple.

  • Don’t attach the Smart Keyboard when travelling (which kinda doesn’t make much sense); or
  • Attach the keyboard then open the Settings app, click the General heading, and select Lock/Unlock so that it’s switched off. This will stop the keyboard waking the iPad Pro.

If the problem continues take a look at what Bluetooth devices are paired with your iPad Pro. Some cars and keyboards can activate the device, for example.
