I updated the ipad with the new version of the OS (or whatever the big update was). It does connect now, but will drop constantly. Hopefully they will get that fixed soon. I can handle it for now as it at least lets me get certain things updated.
From my understanding, they are still working on the issue, so I would hope a fix is on the way (even though they are probably focused on the issues with the new phone first)..
Thanks for the help, it seems to have worked.
