Mine has been crashing like crazy on 2020 11” iPad Pro. Everything is up to date (OS + apps), which is frustrating. I cannot finish forms on sites, as the browser randomly crashes and starts from scratch when I open it again.

Do you have Brave Rewards enabled on your iPad?
We have noticed a spike of webkit crashes, still unsure what is the root of the problem

I have BAT enabled on both of my iPads (2020 11" Pro & Mini 5). The Pro has been problematic, but the 5 is perfect.

what iOS versions are your devices?
I checked some crash reports and we have a lot of webkit crashes exactly on iOS 14.6,
then in later versions it’s much smaller rate

I had problems with iPad OS Beta 3 and iPad OS Beta 4
