    Hi,

    I am encountering an issue with my iPad where it will display the apple logo for around 10 seconds or so then return to normal.

    It seems to happen more often if there are:

    > Multiple apps open in memory and you double click the home button to switch between them
    > Multiple web tabs (5+) and you try and open something in a new window or view a video etc from a link.

    Note this is not a 'my iPad freezes' issue which is all I seem to find on searches. The iPad itself powers on fine, charges fine, and connects to iTunes/syncs fine. The logo will disappear after leaving it for circa 10 seconds or so and then pressing the home button, where it is then back to normal without loosing any data etc.

    The only other issue I've had with it is capacity and large 'other' data shown on iTunes. However I've still got 1.4gb reported free from the 16gb allocation so I don't think a lack of available space is causing the issues.

    If it were a PC I'd say it was something like a swap file issue and it's running out available temporary resources.

    I have tried (in order to reduce the 'other' data size) resetting/rebooting the iPad and restoring from iTunes. This reduces the 'other' data very slightly but has had no effect on the 'iPad logo' error.

    Is it just wearing out due to overuse?! ;-)

    Thanks,

    Richy.

    Hi Richy! Welcome to iPF!

    There is one thing you should do regularly: force close apps that are open in memory.
    There are two ways to open the multitask bar (memory): double tap the Home button, as you described, or perform a four/five finger swipe upwards on the screen. To remove apps/force close these apps:

    In iOS 6: tap and hold an app icon until they start to wiggle, delete them.
    In iOS 7: swipe the thumbnails/pictures above the app icons towards the top of the screen.

    Btw: there's another way to switch between apps without using the Home button: four/five finger swipe upwards, and then tap the icon you need. Second way: swipe left or right with four fingers. This will lead you to the app you opened before.

    Maybe it's just one app that causes your issues. If this is so, you'll have to find out which one it is.

    It may be a good idea to clear Safari history from time to time. This can be done in Safari itself or in Settings.

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Richy and welcome to the Forum!

    This issue has been reported and we do have a thread for it which I will link below. JA does have some good advice for closing apps when finished with them.....this does clear them from ram. But having said that, I do still think it a glitch, which I myself have experienced, although it hasn't happened for quite a few days now.
