Update and Restart
This should always be your first step when attempting to improve the speed of an Apple device. Apple updates don’t just add new features, they also contain optimization updates to help software run more efficiently, which leads to speed boosts. This can have a big impact, especially if it’s been a while since you’ve updated your iPad and it’s fallen a long way behind the current state of iOS.
- So plug in your iPad, and head to Settings.
- Software update, and apply any updates that are waiting for you.
- When finished, fully power down your iPad and then restart it. This simple step can make a big difference.
