Slow ipad??? please help before i trash it
i had this ipad for about 5months, the ipad ran very smooth with web pages opening very fast and you tube videos loading up with no lag and no stopping.
since last week, it started acting up last week not opening web pages and not loading you tubes videos all the way.
1.My safari browser and other browsers have problems loading pages most of the time.
the pages load up 25% and then it takes awhile before they continue to load.
i did clear the history/ cache and cookies. didnt help.
2.My you tube videos now load up to 15secs and then stops. then it takes awhile for them to continue to half way and stops again.i never had this problem before. Before videos would never stop and would load smoothly while playing the video.
also i did play with the dns server number. but cant figure with one is the best. my dns now is 22.214.171.124
My ipad is the 64gb one and has 30gbs free.
Also my ipad is J/b so i dont want to reset it so i dont lose my apps and info
i also have 2 year old ipod touch 8gb with only 1gb left on it and everything runs smoothly one it. web pages and youtube is always smooth and fast.no lag.
My co-worker got the Motorola Xoom and we were compare it in the office and everybody laugh at my ipad because of its speed. they sad the ipad is not worth the money. made me feel like i have a POS ipad.
What is this ipads problem? i am so mad at this that iam about to slam it against the floor and throw it in the recycle bin. its acting like a POS.
Please help. i need this to be fix cause i cant sleep. LOL
i want to go back to my co-worker and prove the ipad is better than the ZOOM.
What do you recommand?
what can be the problem?
what should i do?
thanks to all that reply

Once in a while, you have to reboot your iPad just to reset the memory usage. Some apps can do some leaking over time. You could try the google dns (126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52) just in case....

By doing this you can even get the latest 4.3.1 OS .
Do you know about double clicking home button to close back ground apps if to many are open it will slow down everything
Try the app Xsysinfo to free up memory. Was 99c the last I looked.
Easier than tapping all those x's.....
The easiest solution is to reboot the iPad by holding down the sleep/wake button for a few seconds.
Also, if you haven't plugged it into iTunes recently to get the latest update to the operating system, that's a good thing to do as well. (Your iPad will reboot while updating the iOS, so it's a two-for-one deal.)
I have the exact same problem! It started when i downloaded the new update and now it seems like my ipad is a piece of crap! It used to run so smooth and fast and now it takes an hour to play a 3 min video clip (if it plays the clip at all). I've tried all of the recommendations with no luck. Im really disappointed with the sudden decline in performance, its almost a burden to use my ipad now...and thats something i never thought i could say. Please help.
If all else fails, a trip to the Apple Store's genius desk will do wonders. Try that with a Xoom.
+1, works great. I use shake mode, closes everything , frees up most memory.

If you're not using spotlight search, go into settings and turn off all of em. Indexing slows stuff down too...reboot after.
