You probably need to clean the keyboard.

Honestly, I do not have that problem and can't figure it out other than cleaning the screen properly. Maybe the defective iPad is under warranty and you can get it replaced.

I clean off my device screens once per week. So It's not an issue of crud on the screens. I also notice, from time to time, as much as ten second delay! So as I am typing this sentence, the iPad is ghost-typing about 20-30 characters behind! It's weird! I stop typing, and I watch the keys all press themselves and the sentence finish itself lol!

My old iPad 2 does that because it is old and slow. Is your iPad old and slow?

It's a two year old Mini. The internet itself is slow! Ever since the repeal of net neutrality(late 2017) took effect last June(2018), I've noticed a slow down on the iPad, my phone, and my PC.

I periodically delete excess photos from both iPhone and Pad, and clean the internet cache on both at least once per month, which speeds them up for a week, then they slow down again.

I am constantly closing and reopening Safar on both i-devices in order to load pages I visit. I'm used to doing it, so it feels strange if I don't.

Do byou use it at home or out at hotspots? I'm running out of clues why you would have this problem. It doesn't happen on my 5th generation iPad.

Did you get your iPhone or iPad checked by Apple. I would guess not, but it's a good idea because there's something wrong with them.
