Question: iPad pro flashing and beeping,

Since I installed the newest OS update 11.3, my iPad pro will do rapid beeping (similar to the chime notification starting repeatedly). The screen will flash between time and battery level and the unlock screen will not stay on long enough for me to log in. I have checked settings, notifications should come continuously, not just when iPad is on. I did a hard restart because it had been updated.

The battery level drops a few percent while this is going on, usually 20 second or so. Not enough to prevent me from using the device but annoying.

Is this from the update? Is this a virus? Can I do anything about this flashing?

iPad Pro Wi-Fi, iOS 11.3, Model number ML0V22L/A

Contact Apple Support to set up service if you have any of these issues:

  • You still see a black screen after charging, force restarting, or following the steps in this article.
  • You see a black screen, but you can hear alerts, sounds, and vibrations.
  • The screen remains black, but the device chirps when you unmute it and connect it to power.
  • Your screen is on, but it doesn't respond when you tap, slide, or try other gestures.
  • You can't force your device to restart because a button is broken or stuck.
  • Your device is stuck on the Apple logo, displays a solid color, or isn't recognized in iTunes.

i had tried this already.

If I tilt the iPad it will cease. I do believe it is related to the charging port.
