Do you have an iPad? If so, you may wonder how to keep it running smoothly.
The iPad was around before the iPhone and actually took off much faster. Originally released in 2010, the iPad is a life changer for many.
Technology can slow down your iPad over time. But, don’t worry there are ways of taking care of an iPad to keep it running. Keep reading to learn how to clean an iPad the right way.
Clean the Screen
You have to keep your iPad physically clean as well. Fingerprints will cover the screen, so it may be hard to see at times. In addition, your iPad will pick up dust so it needs to be cleaned regularly.
You should avoid cleaning solutions with ammonia (such as window cleaner). You should use a scratch-resistant, lint-free cloth instead. These are the same cloths you use to clean eyeglasses. Slightly wet the cloth with a little water and run the cloth evenly across the screen.
Don’t forget the back, top, and sides of your iPad. They also need to be cleaned. To keep your iPad extra clean, don’t forget a case like this iPad leather folio.
When you get an alert about an update to the operating system, you should always allow and update your iPad. You will find this in the Settings icon with a red notification. To complete this update, you will need to plug your iPad into a power source.
By keeping your iOS updated, you protect your iPad with the latest security updates. It also fixes any bugs to help your iPad run smoothly. You should never skip these updates perform them as soon as possible.
Next, you want to make sure you get the most out of the battery. This includes turning off data when you aren’t using it. You can also turn down the brightness of your Ipad’s display.
Tell your iPad to get your mail at longer intervals to avoid draining the power throughout the day by pinging your mail server regularly.
One of the best ways to keep your iPad running smoothly and not slow is to save space. This means you should delete any old apps you no longer use. If you decide you want that app back in the future, the App Store keeps a full history so you can find it easily.
You can also save space by not downloading movies and music directly on your iPad. Use iTunes Home Sharing to let you share these items on a wireless network. If you need something for a trip, you can download certain music or movies and not everything.
Back-Up Your iPad
You should also set up your iCloud to do regular backups. You can do this in the iPad Settings. These backups happen while you are charging your iPad, so they will not interfere with your work.
These backups restore your iPad if it has any problems. Use these backups when you set up a new iPad and you will have the same contacts, apps, email accounts, and settings as the previous iPad.
That’s How to Clean an iPad
Know that you know how to clean an iPad, you can keep your iPad working for years to come. Remember to use a lint-free cloth that is only slightly wet to wipe off the screen. Complete your updates, save space, and back up your iPad.
