6 easy ways to make your iPad faster

Apple devices are designed in such a way that their potential is not revealed immediately, but after a year or two, that is, with a serious margin of safety, unlike Android gadgets, which are blown away quite quickly. That is why many users continue to use older iPhone or iPad models even after many years. There are dozens of tips on the Internet supposedly helping to speed up the device: let’s take a few of them and see if they really help speed up your iPad.

We check whether it is possible to speed up the iPad and which methods are suitable

iPad animations settings

Like any computer that receives an OS update, the iPad starts to work a little slower over time. More voracious versions of operating systems are to blame for this, which overload with unnecessary functions and provide additional decoration effects. The same can be done if disable animations on iPad.

There will be fewer interface drawings, and the iPad will become faster

  • Go to Settings.
  • Select Accessibility.
  • Click “Motion” and select “Reduce Motion”.
  • Click “Lower Transparency” – this will make windows and the Dock opaque, which means less resources will be spent.

The setting will turn off the parallax effect – the movement of icons and wallpapers when the iPhone is tilted, as well as screen animations that consume processor resources. At first, it will be unusual for you – there really is a difference with disabled motion reduction. But after a couple of days quickly get used to it, and not even the newest iPad will run faster.

How to format iPad

Yes, cleaning the iPad completely if you use it for a year or a little more is clearly not worth it. But the tablet, which is already more than 2-3 years old, must be formatted. So you can free up the occupied space, erase everything superfluous, for example, the notorious cache, which is constantly growing. You may even want to set up your iPad as a new device.

If you reset the iPad every 2 years of use, you will see that it has become a little faster.

  • Go to Settings, select “General”.
  • Click Erase Content and Settings, then enter your passcode.

After reset iPad performance will obviously be higher. But if you do not want to erase the data, just manually clear the tablet of unnecessary applications that you do not use: it is best to turn on the download of applications so that if necessary, return them to the iPad with one touch.

Do I need to close tabs in Safari

The iPad is very different from the iPhone in its functionality, so many people prefer not to close tabs in Safari months, or save them to a reading list, leaving downloaded offline. This is convenient: you can read a book on the site without downloading it to your device, but this method greatly overloads the iPad.

No matter how new your iPad is, it’s better not to keep hundreds of tabs open in Safari.

  • Go to Settings, select Safari.
  • Scroll down the screen, select Offline Autosave, and disable the slider.

Also don’t forget close tabs in the background in Safari. However, even if you do not feel that the iPad has become faster, then do it in order not to make a mess in the browser.

How to Remove Wallpaper in Safari iOS 15

Last year, Apple added the ability to set wallpapers in Safari. Beautiful, but for some reason the main page of the browser began to freeze even on smartphones with A13 Bionic: icons are loaded much more slowly than when just using the default background. Just click “Edit” and turn off the background image. It is definitely necessary to disable this function in order to slightly overclock ipad.

Background refresh of iPadOS apps

Background refresh is a real evil for any outdated device

This is a rather useful feature, which, unfortunately, consumes a lot of resources. Especially if you don’t have the newest iPad. You can disable all at once or individually, leaving only the important ones. Do not forget that with battery saver turned on, background content refresh is disabled for all applications!

  • Go to Settings.
  • Select Basic.
  • Go to “Update Content” and disable applications that you consider not the most important.

It is best to start with the most resource-intensive applications, such as VK or games, to make sure that the method really works.

Turn off notifications on iPad

Notifications on both iPhone and iPad consume a lot of resources

This method is recommended to use not only on the iPad, but also on the iPhone. It’s no joke, but it not only helps to unload the tablet system, but also to relax a bit. All pop-up windows from apps and games have a significant impact on performance: you can often notice that they hang at the top of the screen when you swipe them. So, be sure to disable them for those applications that you do not use often – the method is working and will make your iPad a little faster.

Unfortunately, none optimizers won’t speed up iPad: they only interfere with the stable operation of the system and create various lags while using applications. So everything has to be done manually. Try to turn off (and not restart) the iPad more often – we wrote about how this is useful in this article.

But do i need to close apps on iphone or the iPad is a question with a clear answer. We talked about whether this helps to speed up the system in a separate article.
