The iPad 2 may offer limited compatibility with iOS 7 but it is the tablet’s most recent update to iOS 7.0.3 that is causing problems in the Apple forums.

Sources told TabTimes that their iPad wouldn’t recharge at all since updating to iOS 7.0.3 and this has also been reflected on the Apple forums, where a number of other commentators have voiced their concern.

“Updated to iOS 7.0.3 yesterday [and] now it won't charge,” said user ‘jmuchel’. “I already reset. You would think that Apple would test these things before sending out updates.” Another poster said that they’d regularly encountered this issue – which can apparently be resolved by heading to ‘reset all settings’ -- since upgrading to iOS 7

“I have the same issue”, wrote ‘pammy95’. “I actually had to restore my iPad after the update. I have tried different plugs, outlets, resetting, and restoring, again. Nothing has worked. It does seem to keep its charge while it is plugged in. But it won't charge.”
