Step by step to Make Your Old iPad Running Faster

There are a few reasons that can make your iPad run slower. Below you can do some tips so that your old iPad can run faster.

  • Delete The No Longer Used Apps

Apps take some space on the storage. By deleting all the no longer used apps, you will free some space in the iPad’s memory that makes iOS work lighter. Remember deleting the apps is not similar to closing the apps down. Deleting means you completely remove the apps from your device while closing down means you only stop the apps to work but the apps still take the space in device memory.

  • Remove Large Files

Go to the Settings menu, General column then select Storage & iCloud Usage. Tap Manage Storage to see large files that occupy your device. Delete the files you do not longer anymore.

  • Restart iPad

After you clean the apps and large files of your iPad, restart your device so it can refresh the memory. Hold down a little longer Sleep/Wake button till you see Power control slider. Slide the power off. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button again if you want to turn on your iPad.
