One of the most frequent reasons why your iPad runs slow, mainly, is the cache. What is cache? The cache is a temporary storage space that is used for easy access to data and retrieval information. For instance, cache stores all the information from a website you have previously visited and loads faster next time you visit the same website. Also, it includes temporary internet records such as login, cookies, that track your online performance. But, when the storage becomes wider the effects are opposite. To speed up your iPad, we advise to erase all the cache from your browser. Notice that all your accounts will be signed out and you will need to log in all over again.
