The strange case of the iPad Mini 5th Gen with “corrupted” storage

I got the latest generation iPad Mini not so long ago. It is out of warranty, but definitely not that old. It is a child of the pandemic. I got it because I wanted to use it for a more comfortable reading experience because of its larger screen size. I won’t call it a better screen because it does not have an OLED screen like the Samsungs or the newer iPhones.
