Did you fully update your iPad before you attempted to download the app?

Did you buy your iPad Mini 4 brand new from Apple or Apple authorized reseller?

Please don't take this the wrong way.  Go to Settings / General / About and copy down the Model number.
Then lookup Model number and make sure you have a iPad Mini 4.  It has happened before, a person was sold a iPad Mini 1.

Found another thread where a person had a iPad 4 and not iPad Mini 4.
The iPad 4 came out before iPad Mini4, and iPad 4 had different and slower processor than iPad Mini 4.  Which is why GO4 would not load.

hey picanoc - makes you wanna scream, right? i never imagined that owning a mavic would end up costing so much extra money and time and stress and frustration. You are not alone. i am pretty sure your ipad mini 4 just needs some tweeking and you will come right. i hope the ipad works out to be all you hoped it would be.

If you decide on another iPad the mini 4 is a great one to get. Just my opinion!

The Ipad mini 4 is on the compatible mobile device list of the Mavic pro, but the Ipad 4 is not,  you are recommended to use the mobile device that on the compatible mobile device list.

I used an iPad mini 2 for a little while and it worked fine however I would recommend mini 4 over a mini 2.  

If the iOS device is on the iOS 10/11 it should be compatible..  regardless of model since that’s how Apple handles compatability. The dev has iPad and iPhone version so it will work on all that run the latest iOS....

A1458 is NOT a Mini 4, it is a 4th generation iPad made in 2012.
