I have a 16g iPad2 version 5.1.1......It does fine for me and my use...I admit that I do not use a lot of memory on the IPad. I use it for email, books from library, newspaper, searches and some photo storage and use some Safari. I seldom ever use my laptop anymore. The iPad is so easy.
My question is this.....when I go to Settings and then General and then Usage and Storage drop down ....if I see the list of all the apps and their memory taken...it says at the top that 6.2GB used and 7.6GB available. When I add up ALL of the apps on the drop down list under storage it ONLY comes up to about 2.5GB give or take a little.......this does not add up. I wonder why
Also if I go to General in tools it says I have capacity of 13.8GB available and available 7.6GB.
This came up because I wanted to see if the iPad was slowing down. So I thought I would check if I was using a lot of memory. Then I started adding things up and cannot figure why they do not add up....I am sure it is just something I do not understand. I am just trying to learn. Thanks for an explanation.
