After a few months of use it is normal for your iPad to start slowing down. There are several factors that lead to this problem, such as photos, videos, Internet advertisements, etc. Although these slowdowns are common on older Apple tablets, there are cases where they can also occur on the latest generation. Usually these are easily resolvable problems, but let’s see them in detail with this article on how to speed up the slow iPad.
- Close App that gives problems
- Restart the iPad
- Update the operating system
- Use an adblock
- Delete old applications
One of the main causes for your iPad to become slow are the applications running on your device. It often happens that the latter present incompatibilities or bugs that cause sudden blockages. If this problem is encountered, the user is forced to press the Home button, leaving the app active in the background; in fact, the problem will not be solved.
To close an app on iPhone or iPad, the steps to follow are really simple, just press the Home button twice quickly to enter the app screen in progress. At this point you can decide whether to close all the running apps or just one. Once you have identified the problem app, all you have to do is drag it up until it disappears. In this way you will be able to close the app and then probably solve the problem that made the iPad slow.
If your Apple device has become slow and even after closing all running apps the situation has not improved, then it may be useful to reboot the iPad. Rebooting can be a little more complicated than you think. In fact, many do nothing but turn off and on the device through the off button, simply putting the tablet in suspended mode, which does not solve any problem. To run a real Reboot you will have to press the power button of the iPad until the “scroll to turn off” screen appears. At this point you will have to swipe and wait until the device is completely switched off; then you will have to press the power button for a few seconds, until the iPad will turn back on and display the Apple logo. Through this procedure the problem of slowing down has a good chance of being resolved.
To prevent your iPad from becoming sluggish, you will need to perform minor maintenance operations from time to time, such as updating the iOS operating system every time Apple releases a new version. Operating systems not updated in fact could slow down your iPad and not be compatible with the new applications installed. To update iOS on iPad the procedure to follow is really very simple; enough that you should go in settings then select General, then you must click on Software Update and, once inside the new page, if there are updates, you can upgrade.
As already mentioned above, advertising can also contribute to the slowing down of your tablet from the bitten apple; this is why it is very important to have an adblock on your device: just go to the App Store, search for an adblock application and choose the one you like from those shown. Once the application has been downloaded, you will then have to go to Safari Settings and activate it. In a few minutes you will see all those annoying Internet advertisements disappear which do nothing but damage and slow down your device.
Sometimes it happens that the iPad has become slow simply because the memory is full of files and applications that we no longer use and that continue to occupy space in storage. In these cases it will be enough to clean up by eliminating all that is not useful, especially applications and games that weigh heavily on the memory. To check the storage space, just go to Settings, then in General and then Storage and Cloud. Here you will have to tap the heading Manage storage space and the game is done. In the screen appeared you can see which apps are clogging the memory and, in case you do not use them anymore, you can uninstall them to give speed to your tablet.
