    My apps keeping closing down, when I check the diagnostics area of the setting it show a series of low memory errors. I have re-booted and reset. The only thing I haven't done is a factory reset. This is my second iPad, the first one was replaced due to the same issue. Any thoughts on the cause and what I can do to fix it?

    Are all of your apps responding this way or just certain ones?

    From what I can tell its pretty much all of them. Some go faster then others but they all eventually shut down.

    Because it's happening on the replacement machine it could be that one malfunctioning app is generating all of the errors. The problem is determining which one.

    Are you running the most up-to-date iOS?

    I am running the most current version, just checked the software update and I'm good. I guess I can start deleting all of the recent new adds to see if that helps.

    That's a start.

    I've forwarded your question to a fellow member to see if he has any suggestions.

    In the meantime, see if you can isolate the offending app.

    Or you could do it the other way around; if you don't have too many apps. Do the restore, and add the apps back one at a time. The really popular apps with lots of users and reviews should be the safest. Look to the off beat apps as problem children first. You might even go back to the App Store and check reviews on them to see if anyone else is having problems.

    Make sure you save important documents, pictures, etc. before doing this.

    And you did not say, but I should ask, are you jailbroken? If so, then start by removing recent tweaks first.

    Thanks. I'm not jail broken so thats a none issue. Your suggestion a factory reset with a slow reading of the apps? I don't have much to lose I guess except for a little time. I'm pull the last few adds first because I know which they are and if that doesn't work I will Cary on.

    Don't forget, you can see all your previously purchased apps by going to the Purchased tab in the App Store. Much easier than having to remember them.
