Dear All, Being used to conduct the routine maintenance of files and software components on my Mac regularly, I'm surprised that no maintenance software is available for the iPad. Cleanup and maintenance utilities are vital to the performance of desktop computers and I can't count the number of times I was saved by programs such as Onyx on my Mac. I'm aware that optimizing battery power, keeping iOS upgraded, rebooting once in a while and cleaning up storage space will do a lot to keep an iPad in shape, but even if its files are hidden from view, some of these are bound to get corrupt one day. iPads DO crash like any other computing device. Apps incompatibilities DO exist but unlike on a Mac, there is no software to detect them. Is it possible that Apple doesn't allow developpers to commercialize maintenance and optimization apps, denying them access to their App Store in an attempt to control the life-span of iPads and controlling thus their built-in obsolescence? Thank you very much in advance for your feedback.
