5 Tips to Speed Up a Slow iPad


iPad moving at a slow crawl or just feels laggy and trying to figure out how to get it back up to speed?  There are 5 tips you can try to help speed up a slow iPad device.

1. Update your iPad’s firmware

Keep your iPad’s firmware up to date. Updating your iPad’s firmware helps ensure that your apps run at optimal performance. In every firmware version, there’re bug fixes, features and many more that could help resolving issues that slow down your iPad.

2. Remove unwanted apps

Removing unwanted apps can help saving your iPad’s space and on top of that, it may improve your iPad’s reading speed. Slide through your iPad and delete apps that you no longer need.

3. Clear out your multitasking tray

Apple swears up and down that multitasking will not slow down your iPad since iOS uses a type of “caching” or saved state process instead of true multitasking. Under normal circumstances, you don’t need to kill tasks in iOS multitasking, but I’m still convinced that some apps can have memory leaks. App store apps are not as immune as jailbreak apps. So if you’re jailbroken, you may definitely notice a difference doing this. I can check my memory usage via SBSettings and have less than 100MB free. After clearing out my multitasking tray, that number magically jumps to over 300MB free.

4. Limit the apps you install (if you’re jailbroken)

Jailbroken users have to be even more careful about installing and running applications from Cydia. It’s always important to make sure that the apps you are installing don’t conflict with each other (which sometimes is not an easy task). You also want to be sure that applications you have installed are compatible with the version of iOS you are running. The App Store won’t let you install anything that isn’t compatible with your iPad but Cydia will. So make sure you’re looking for those things. If you have a problem jailbreak app, uninstall it and see if your device speeds up.

5. Clear Browser Cache

In fact, saving browsing caches allows faster browsing experience, but as times goes on, it may become overload and cluttered. We recommend you to clear your iPad’s browser cache once per week to keep your browser clean and smooth. To do so, open Settings, select Safari from the left pane and then tap on Clear Cache. It is advisable to also clear the browsing History and Cookies on your iPad.
