I've got an iPad 2 running iOS 9.3.5 which has a touchscreen that doesn't work. I'd like to recover the pictures from it preferably without having to pay to have a screen replaced on what is essentially an unsupported paperweight at this point.
I've got a USB to 30pin adapter so I can connect a keyboard which has let me unlock the iPad. The problem now is that although it is unlocked I have to allow access/trust any computer I connect it to, which I can't do because I have to unplug the keyboard to plug in the USB cable.
My first idea was to pair it with a bluetooth keyboard. Unfortunatley iOS 9.3.5 seems to be horrificly bad at handling keyboards. Using Meta+Space I can get into settings but once in there I'm stuck. I can search within settings but can't get out of the search box and interact with the app iteself.
This issue is compounded by it not having any internet access. Again if I could navigate settings I could connect it to wifi but that wont work. Of course because its not connected to wifi siri wont work.
I'm running out of ideas at this point. We are 1 button press away for getting the pictures off but there seems to be no way to get that input into the iPad. I've even tried the old hit the back corner of the iPad trick to re-seat the digitizer connection to no avail.
I have a Windows machine and Mac that can throw things at this iPad if anyone has any ideas.
