Cause of slow iPad performance
There are many reasons why an iPad can work slowly. An application installed on your device may have problems. Your Internet connection may be slow. Your iPad might run a previous operating system, or the background app update feature might be enabled. Your device’s storage space may be full. If performance is slow only when you use your iPad to browse the web, Safari for iPad may have trouble managing your ads. The good news is that most of these problems are easy to solve.
How to repair a slow iPad
The following solutions can help you get your iPad in the form of races:
Restart your iPad. Whenever there is a problem with a device, a good first step is to restart that device, and the iPad is no exception. Restarting the iPad removes all temporary memory and gives the operating system a clean boot.
Restarting your iPad won’t permanently delete your personal data.
Close the current iPad app. One of the reasons an iPad can slow down is a problem with an app instead of an iPad. Exiting and reopening the application can resolve the issue.
Move all apps from the app switcher. Your iPad adds all the apps you open to the Switcher App, the Task Manager for iPad, so you can quickly switch between apps while performing multiple tasks. After a while, the number of applications in the application switch can increase. Many of these applications are in suspended mode or running in the background. Deleting applications from the application option frees memory and can improve performance.
Close applications that are running in the background. Some apps continue to run in the background, even after you exit the app. Usually these are apps that broadcast music (such as the built-in music app, Pandora and Spotify) and video streaming apps (such as the Apple TV app or apps from cable and satellite providers).
Check your Wi-Fi connection. If restarting your iPad doesn’t improve your performance, it may not be the slow-running iPad. It can be your wireless network. If the wireless network is extracted, run an Internet speed test. If your speed increases as you approach your router, try to increase your Wi-Fi range.
Update iPadOS. It is important to keep your operating system up-to-date. This ensures that you have the latest performance settings and the latest security fixes.
Install an ad blocker. If your iPad mainly slows down when you browse the web, but your internet speed is good, it could be the pages you visit. The more ads a web page has, the longer it will take to load the page. Ad blockers prevent ads from loading on webpages, which makes webpage loading in Safari faster.
Clear Update the app in the background. Background app refresh allows apps to update content even when you’re not using it. For example, Facebook can retrieve posts for your news feed or a news app can get the latest articles so they’re ready for you. As a result, this feature requires processing time and Internet bandwidth, which could cause the iPad to run a little slower.
Delete apps that you no longer use. If your iPad has little storage space, the space on your device can sometimes improve performance. To see which apps use the most space on your iPad, select Settings > General > iPad Storage. Here you can see all the apps installed on your iPad, the last time you used each and how much space each takes up. Delete uneeded apps by tapping the app, and then select Delete app.
You can also configure iPadOS to automatically delete apps that are rarely used to free up space (keeping files and data for those apps). To do this, select Settings > General > iPad Storage, and then select Enable next to Download unused apps.
