    You don't need to do either.


    Periodically rebooting is about all you need to do, and only then if things are acting up.

    The beauty of the device is that none of that is necessary.

    KevinJS [​IMG]is spot on as usual. And you really don't need to do either of those item thankfully. But.....

    Should you actually ever feel inclined to defrag, there is a way to do it. Use iTunes to do a full backup and then tell it to do a full restore. Depending on how much data, apps, music, photos and books you have it can take anywhere from 30 to 90+ minutes to complete the restore process. During the restore process all the data is written first and then apps, music, books and photos if memory serves. But I have only done this once and it was simply to test a theory because I am odd like that.
