Having an iPad can be great for both work and play, but as with any device, it can become bogged down over time with caches of data that can slow your device down. Cached data includes temporary files and images that are stored on your iPad to help speed up the loading of apps and websites. Clearing the cache on your iPad is a simple process here is how to do it.

Clear your cache on iPad

Caches are used in many places, including your iPad. As you browse the internet, your iPad saves temporary files and images to help your experience in future visits. However, overtime these caches can become corrupt or simply take up too much space which can slow down how quickly your device runs.

Luckily, clearing caches on an iPad is simple and a great way to keep your device running smoothly and efficiently. To begin, you want to open your Settings app and tap Safari. Then scroll down until you find the Clear History and Website Data feature at the bottom of the page. When that button is pressed, all of the stored history and website data will be cleared from whatever browser you are using on the iPad. And that’s it! By taking this step you should notice an improvement in speed for certain websites you commonly visit as well as a decrease in data storage for better overall performance on your iPad.

Clear app data

Clearing app data on an iPad can help free up storage space and improve the performance of the device. The first step is to go to Settings, click General, and select iPad Storage. Here you will be able to see a list of all applications on your device as well as how much space each one takes up.

To begin the process of clearing data that is no longer needed, simply tap on an app which is using the most amount of space. You will then see an option for Usage that grants access to deleting old files from within the application. It may also allow you to delete individual files or even wipe out entire chunks of data from a particular app. Select what you want gone and confirm with any necessary prompts to complete the task for a given application before moving on to other apps in need of cleaning up.

Restarting an iPad can assist in freeing up memory

When it comes to keeping your iPad running smoothly, freeing up memory can be an important step. Memory is used by apps and processes, so it’s important to be mindful of what’s running in the background to ensure there is enough free and unallocated memory for your device to access when needed. Restarting your iPad can be a good way to clear the memory and free up any RAM that may have been occupied by old or unused processes.

To restart your iPad, simply press and hold the Power button on its side until the power off slider appears onscreen. Swipe this power off slider to turn off your device, then wait until it has powered down fully before pressing the Power button again in order to turn it back on. This process of restarting your iPad will help ensure that you have plenty of available memory while allowing any open applications and processes to shut down properly. Making sure that you frequently restart your iPad can go a long way towards helping maintain its peak performance while allowing apps to run more efficiently.
