When scrolling through photo album by swiping upward on iPad’s screen my iPad will suddenly reset itself. Not touching anything but front screen swiping upwards. I just tried your intended turn power off method to see if that makes a difference. Happened a few times and wondering wtf? Wondering if anyone else has experienced this? Cause? Solution if any? Thank you very much.
