Do you need iPad 3 repair or some tips to make it run better? Perhaps your iPad 3 is getting older and running sluggish, but you don’t want to buy a new one. Remember the day when you took your iPad 3 out of its box for the first time? Remember how fast it ran? How snappy it was? Yeah, those were the days. But let’s face it—your iPad 3 is getting somewhat over-the-hill after several years of great use. But why upgrade when it still works? Try these simple tips and tricks to speed up your iPad 3 to squeeze some more life out of it:
Tip # 1: Update to latest iOS.
Updating the firmware is always a good idea in order to get the latest features and security fixes. For updating your iOS, just go to the General tab in Settings and tap on Software Update on the right side. The device will check if a new iOS is available, and if so, will guide you through the process.
Tip #2: Delete unnecessary apps.
This tip is only relevant when you hardly have any disk space left – and I mean really no disk space left. Something in the order of less than 1 GB.
In order to find out how much space you have left, go to the General tab in Settings and tap on Usage on the right side. Give it a second, and after a short moment you see how much storage you have available / used.
If you still have a GB or so available, don’t worry – you are good. Only if you are really running out of space, you can go through this list and see what hardly used apps gobble up all your storage space. When you are running out of storage capacity, deleting some bigger apps can speed up your iPad.
Tip #3: Clear browser cache.
Your browser cache is another place where you can reclaim some storage space, which might result in slight speed improvements.
In Settings, find Safari on the left side and tap on Clear Cookies and Data on the right site. Affirm by tapping Clear in the popup window.
Tip #4: Turn off notifications.
This is a great but little known tip! Many apps, when first launched, ask you whether you want them to notify you about important updates and other stuff. Get rid of these notifications in order to free-up resources.
In Settings, go to Notifications and clear out all the apps like in the screenshot. Don’t worry about alarm clocks – they will still wake you up. You will be also still reminded of upcoming events in iCal, provided that you have scheduled an alert.
Tip #5: Turn off location services.
The next thing you want to turn off is the location services. In Settings, go to Location Services on the left site. On the right site, you can either turn all location services off or you can decide this on a case-by-case basis. You will want to switch off location services on a case-by-case basis, because using the “kill all” switch will also disable the “Find my iPad” service. That’s too much of a security risk.
