    Hi, I have upgraded to ios 5.0.1 today and I love safari! But many of my apps (especially 3d games) lag horridly on my iPad 1 :( I tried respring and when I upgrade to ios 5, I did not restore from my previous backup...

    Give these steps a try. I'm not sure what you meant by respring, did you mean reset?

    Do the four finger swipe up to reveal your multi task bar along the bottom. It will show all the apps that you have opened at one time or another. Long press one of these apps until they start to jiggle and red minus signs will appear above them all. Press all the minus signs, this will close them, not delete them. It's a good idea to do this regularly just to keep them all running smoothly, I do mine every night. Check and see if it is operating now. if not a restart is in order.

    Restart: Press and hold the power off button, the one at the top right. You will see a slide appear to power off, slide this and the screen will go dark and a Whirly will appear. When the Whirly disappears your iPad is now off. Press the power button again until the Apple logo appears, this will take a few seconds and your iPad will start again. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running smoothly. Now see if it is operating. If not a reset is the next step.

    Reset: Hold the power off button and the home button simultaneously, keep holding them in and you will see the power off slide appear and disappear, wait until you see the Apple logo appear before releasing the buttons. It will take a little longer for your iPad to start. This is a reset.

    When your iPad begins to behave strangely these are the first steps you should do to rectify it. Let us know how you go, good luck!!

    Hi, thanks for your reply :) I had done all of these steps and some app still does not run smoothly. I guess they are not supported in iOS 5 yet :( weirdly some apps run as smooth as silk

    Yes this could be true, there have been many updates for apps to run on IOS5 lately. Also it is not until an app is updated that bugs will appear and then we have to wait for another update to fix this. I hope your wait is not too long for these to be rectified. :)
