    I have only had my iPad 2 a month and a few days ago it crashed and since then keeps crashing when the crash first happened it took about an hour to get back into it. After checking various websites I rebooted the iPad as new deleting everything but even now it is still crashing what do I do now?

    Hi emma and welcome to the forum. The iPad 2 does not have an overly-huge memory and after a month of use the RAM can get congested and needs tidying up.
    I'm not sure from the steps taken by you so far that you have already done this, but this is something that should be done regularly to sweeten up the iPad's memory:

    Press on the Home button twice (or do a four-finger swipe upwards) to reveal all the apps still hanging around in memory, as per the row of icons on the bottom task bar. Hold down on any icon until they all start to wiggle. Then delete them all by tapping each minus symbol. Switch your iPad off and on and that should have it run better.

    Another thing to help with tidying up memory (courtesy of a recent post by member RoyRob) is:
    Settings>Safari>Clear Data and also Clear Cookies. Hope that helps. Come back if not, as there are others who may have a better suggestion.
    Regards, Andrew

    Thanks for the suggestion clearing the aps at the bottem was the first thing I thought of. I tried the tip with the safari data and its still crashing today. It's bad because even though the memory may be smaller i have only 6 aps on my iPad to the 50 odd I have on my I phone it's poor really considering the cost of iPads

    Emma....what version Ios are you running on your iPad? I have an iPad 2 as well and I don't get the kind of crashes as you are.

    ..and you have done a reset-by holding the power and home button at the same time as what the OB stated?

    What apps makes it crash?

    ...and not to repeat anything...but i have had to clear my cookies because the Safari mobile browser was acting up for me. Twice already I have had to do that, since I have owned my ipad for 16 months.

    Have you done that as well?

    If you have only had this iPad for a month, have you thought about making an appointment with a genius at the Apple store? You are still in warranty and they can do check to see what is wrong.

    What is "crashing"? Do you mean an app that quits working and blinks to the home screen or do you mean the entire iPad quits working? What exactly happens when it crashes?

    Sounds like a hardware or software problem that should not happen, I would have it checked at an apple store and/ or get a new replacement. My iPad 1 which was inferior then the iPad 2 was nothing as unstable as your iPad 2
