How to Get a Faster iPad in Just Five Seconds

Watching Apple since 1999. I don't say what they should do. I say what they might do. They sometimes do.

    Thank you, Jonny. Could you clarify for me the step regarding holding down the power button till the ‘slide to power off’ slider appears. Should one let go of the power button as soon as the ‘slide to power off’ appears, and then press on the Home button? If so, that doesn’t work for me. For my iPad 2, I have to keep holding down the power button even while I press the Home button to get a full restart.

    Thank you,

    hey Ivor,

    Lots of people seem to be having trouble with this one.
    What should happen is;
    1.Hold the power button until the slide to power off appears
    2.Let go of the power button
    3. Do not touch the slider that has appeared
    4. With the slide to power off dialog still on the screen you should press and hold the Home button.
    5. Keep holding for a few moments
    6. The slide to power off dialog disappears to be replaced by the standard home screen.
    YOu shouldn’t be aware of much else, but your apps may become a little faster if they have slowed down, though you will experience no improvements if your apps are running fine in the first place.
