Often iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch act erratically when too many apps are running and/or memory is low. There are two ways to fix this:
1) Double Tap the Home Button and close a few of your running apps (you’ll be surprised how many you have open).
Since the introduction of multitasking to iOS, you can now run more than one program on your iDevice at the same time. That doesn’t mean you always want them open though – so this tutorial will show you how to close (or quit) any program running on your iPad/iPhone/iPodTouch.
- Start out by “double-clicking” the Home button on your iDevice. The Home button is the one at the bottom of your iDevice, as illustrated in the image below.
- Swipe Left and Right to find Running Apps that you are not current using.
- Swipe Up to Remove the App from Active Memory.
- That App will now close. NOTE: This will close the App, not delete it.
2) Reboot your device (hold the power button down for 10 seconds and follow the directions).
