    Hi and welcome to the Forum!

    Well that depends on what it is that's loading, could be Internet, could be your iPad needs a little housekeeping done. Do you close your apps regularly? From the home screen do the four finger swipe up or double press the home button to reveal your multi task bar. These are all the apps that you have opened at one time. Long press an app until it jiggles and a red minus sign will appear above it. Press the minus sign, this will close the app, not delete it, close all these apps and just swipe the screen down to close. All these apps use a little ram when open so closing them completely clear will them from ram.

    Do you clear your history and cookies at all? Settings – Safari - clear history and cookies. The iPad will store cookies from every site visited and clearing this will free more ram.

    It's a good idea to restart your iPad occasionally too - 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 restart. You should restart your iPad occasionally also as it will keep it running well.

    Let us know if these steps make a difference.
