My iPad2 (over a year old now) has started acting up. It types by itself or sometimes opens websites randomly when I am in Safari.

I backed it up on iTunes and reset the iPad2. That did not help.

I then upgraded to iOS6 and that didnt help either.

 

Any pointers?

 

thanks

    Have you cleaned your screen? A dirty screen can cause this issue. If your screen is clean then do a soft reset. Hold the Power and Home Button down untill you see the Apple Logo, let go. Let me know if that worked.

     

    Good Luck,

    Hello,

    I have tried this and will monitor if that worked. In my limited use so far, it seems to work.

     

    Thanks for the help,
