Hi! I’m not sure if anyone else may be having this problem but from the looks of it and my searches I haven’t found any real resolve…until now (sort of).
Home Assistant worked (though rather slow) on my IPad 2 with IOS 9.36 up until a couple months ago. It was fine and I could get to my ESP32 Lights, and some other functions. But I have a basic set up that I just want to get to some LED light strips via WIFI to my ESP32. After I did an update to 0.113.1 (HassOS 4.11) , like I mentioned a couple months ago, now I can’t get past the “Initializing…” screen. I have got to the password authentication screen but still it wouldn’t log-in to “Lovelace” or even give me access to the password fields. This sucked as I can’t see myself spending any money to get a new Tablet as the IPad 2 does fine with everything else.
I have my Home Assistant on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ and a main server PC that I can access it through OK via a Browser. I use the same Pi’s for Volumio, my Media System, and a couple other things around the house. EVERYTHING works but Home Assistant, no problem. My IPad can also get to my Router software via a browser.
The Fix (Sorta):
OK, I have UltraVNC installed in all of my systems so I can see all of my computers. I works really well. I fixed the access to my Home Assistant by installing the “RealVNC” Application, FREE and no problem with an IPad2, onto the IPad and then accessing my Main PC through that. I open a browser on the Main PC, and then my Home Assistant URL through the VNC connection and then I can use it through RealVNC on my IPad.
