My iPad 2 (32gb) is about one year old and he is getting very slow. I've tried restarting the iPad and quitting all apps but with no real success.
There is about 5 GB of free storage space.

Any other ideas on how to speed things up?

  • What do you mean by "slow"? Do you notice a big difference between now and a few weeks earlier?

  • I'll give one example of "slow"/"sluggish": when I open safari it sometimes takes ~10sec to "load". I.e., until you see the open pages and the search bar is active. To answer your second question: yes, I think this sluggishness started in the last few weeks.

  • What did you do the last few weeks? Installed something? Perform a jailbreak? Is it only Safari? Or other apps too?

  • no jailbreak. I installed a few apps here and there. I think it's mostly safari but also other apps (you can really see it on the Twitter and Facebook apps).

Have your tried backing it up to your computer, then restoring it? That might help. Make sure it's backed up.
