64-bit iPad Mini 4 Wi-Fi + Cellular Unable to Install ABP

Postby potterjazz » Thu Mar 24, 2016 1:49 pm

I have an iPad Mini (Model #MD536LL/A) and according to Apple, it is a 64-bit device. I have the latest iOS version (9.3 [13E233]), but I am unable to download Adblock Plus. I get the "...is not available for this device" message. What is the problem? I have looked on this forum and the explanation elsewhere here was that you need a 64-bit device. But that is what I have. Help please! Safari on this iPad Mini regularly has to reload pages because of the excessive quantity of advertisements that take forever to load (the iPad Mini 4 has notoriously poor WiFi, but that's another matter). I don't want to switch browsers because I have many favorites on my version of Safari and don't want to reload them on a new browser (the Adblock Plus Browser does work on my iPad mini).

All help is appreciaetd.

Hey potterjazz!

Thanks for reaching out to us.
Where did you read from Apple where your device is 64-bit?
The exact model you stated, your iPad Mini has a 'powerful A5 chip'. According to the Wikipedia - the A5 chip is only 32 bit - See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apple_A5
Let us know in case you have any other question. :)

Worse than that, there's no way to have the App Store show an app only to 64-bit devices, even if the app itself only works on 64-bit devices.
There's a buzzin' in my brain I really can't explain; I think about it before they make me go to bed.
