iPad Space

If the memory or storage capacity is less and you wish to but save something urgent you obviously need to free some space on your iPad for this. You either delete your favourite photo or an app which you do not wish to do but are forced to do as you need some space.

But here you will find below some simple but highly effective methods to prevent  your iPad from being cluttered for space and also free a lot of space on the device without having to delete apps and photos.

Get rid of “Other Data”

You might ask what is “Other Data”. The other data are the cache, cookies, logs, browser history that you have accumulated over the time on your iPad. Each app that you use continues to pile up cache, cookies and other stuff.

To check out how much other data a particular app has stored,

Just go over to Settings >General.

Tap on Storage and then on iCloud Usage

Next tap on Manage Storage under storage. There you will see the list of apps and the space they have taken up on your device.

Now you need to backup your device preferably via iTunes.

Finally, connect your device to your Mac or PC, launch iTunes and restore from backup.

You are almost there now with space but remember it won’t get rid of all the caches at once, repeating the process frequently will go a long way in keeping your device uncluttered.

Clear Safari History and Website Data

By default, Safari keeps with it the record of what you search on the web. You need to clear it off from time to time.

Go to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data.
