3 Ways to Make Your iPad User Interface Fast

There are two elements that make up for the responsiveness of the user interface you experience daily, one is hardware and the other is software. As you know we can’t tweak the hardware, but we can tweak the software, to make it faster.

Stop Background App Refreshing

While there is always a way to delete unwanted apps to make some breathable space for your iPad to run smoothly. The other way apps can slow down your iPad, is the background process we forget to close, which utilizes the RAM to refresh each and every app. You can turn off the background refresh either for all apps or for certain apps you don’t wish to keep running in the background. This will save the volatile memory of your iPad, and help it run faster.

  • Open the Settings app, tap General, then tap Background App Refresh
  • Turn off the toggle for the apps you don’t want to keep running, or
  • Turn off the background refresh entirely (this also saves battery)

Adjust the Graphics Settings of your iPad

Just like Background Processing, even the graphics elements use the RAM of your iPad to those smooth transitions of the iPadOS. In order to speed up your iPad, you can disable those graphic elements.

  • Reduce Transparency:
    1. Open the Settings app, tap on Accessibility.
    2. Go to Display & Text Size.
    3. Enable the toggle for Reduce Transparency.
  • Reduce Motion Elements: This will turn off the animations while navigating the UI, lowering the load on CPU and GPU, also freeing up memory as well. Making the UI more responsive, because of the saved resources.
    1. Go back to Accessibility and tap Motion.
    2. Enable Toggle on Reduce Motion and Prefer Cross-Fade Transitions

Disable Siri and Spotlight Search Suggestions

Machine Learning has evolved a lot in the past few years, as it can do things that were not possible earlier. But behind those simple yet useful scenarios, go a lot of processing power, as the CPU and the neural engine run billions of calculations to complete the task assigned. We can take this load off the CPU and neural engine by disabling Siri and spotlight search, so the saved resources can be used elsewhere for an overall fast experience.

  • Open the Settings app.
  • Tap Siri & Search (Here you can choose where you don’t want Siri)
  • You can Disable either or all the options under, Suggestions from Apple
  • Similarly, you can tap on each app and disable the options where you don’t want Siri

Wrapping Up

By changing the settings mentioned above, you can speed up your recently bought or even old iPad, and enjoy the experience of the fast and responsive UI. It will not be as smooth as an actual Promotion display but will be fast enough to for your daily use without making you feel that your iPad has become sluggish. You know the best part of these changes is that they can be applied to your iPhone as well which you purchased a few years back, enabling you to use your dearest iPhone for a few more years.
