I would contact your local Apple Store and ask. At worst, they'll say you have to buy another product. However, it's likely they'll tell you how to adjust the settings.

The only iOS signed by Apple is 10.3.1, so it's not possible to revert to a previous software. It's also impossible to "ban" updates.

Apple recommends using accessories certified by them. Third party cables might in some cases damage your iPad.

Apple seems to do that. I had USB and SD card to lightning readers that stopped working and now only my Apple branded ones work with my iPad and all non-brands no longer work. There might be some that do, but I quit wasting money and just pay extra for the Apple version so I don't have to worry about it not working. I love my iPad Pro, but I really wish a USB slot was native. iPad Pro is great for editing video footage, but getting the footage is a PIA sometimes. I have one camera, a 360fly, that I can't use anymore because I have no way to get the footage to my iPad. USB connections no longer work, even with Apple branded ones. Blah. Went back to GoPro just because SD cards always work.

EDIT: sorry, got side tracked at the end there haha. I love iProducts, except that one thing.

I had a different problem. My no-name adapter works with my iPad Air 2, but not with my iPhone 7 plus. I don't need it to work with my iPad since it has a headphone jack. I apparently wasted my money.

Any cables that plug into the lightning port of an Apple device require an internal authentication chip to work properly. Unauthorized cables do not have that chip and can stop working at any time. Authorized third party cables will have the authentication chip and will work. Belkin is an authorized accessory make and their adaptor is sold in Apple stores and the Apple online store.
