Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

My dad gifted me an iPad as a graduation present, and after using it for several years, I find that it isn’t working smoothly and fast as it used to when dad gave it to me for the first time. My friends suggested me to defragment it. What are the steps that I should follow to defragment iPad?

Steps To Defragment IPad


I would suggest you not to defragment your iPad. Defragmenting your iPad is not a good option at all. You may lose all the data on yours, or your iPad may even crash.

The iPad uses Flash memory as a storage device rather than a hard disk which is used in our computers. Defragmentation is designed for Hard Disk Drives, which are mechanical in nature. But Flash Drives use electric mechanism and defragmenting a Flash Drive may reduce its life span.

I would suggest update your iOS or uninstall the unused or unnecessary applications.

Steps To Defragment IPad


I don’t think that’s a good idea. Defragmenting a storage device is designed only for computer hard drives but not internal storage of a mobile device such as an iPad. If out of curiosity you will try to defragment its internal storage, you are risking of damaging your storage and you might end up with a broken iPad.

Apple iPad

If you want to prolong the use of your iPad, don’t defragment it. If you want to speed up your iPad or boost its performance, one way of doing it is by upgrading its firmware. Installing and updating to the latest iOS will fix bugs that slow down the performance of the device. Next to this, you should close apps that are running in the background.

Though the iOS is very good at closing applications automatically, there are times it misses some things. To close applications, double-click the Home button to bring up the multi-tasking screen then flick the app off the top of the screen or drag the app towards the top of the display.
