How do I Fix Slow Internet on my iPad?
Wondering why your iPad is so slow? Even if you're using the latest apps on an "ancient" device from 2010, an Apple iPad shouldn't slow down like an aging Windows PC or Android tablet does. So why does this happen?
Whether you have an iPad, iPad Mini, iPad Air or iPad Pro and are running the iOS or newer iPadOS operating systems, the most likely cause for a slow iPad is a misbehaving app. If this is the case, you can just close apps one at a time and see if you get better performance.
The second most common cause for a slow iPad is the internet connection you're using. Is your iPad internet slow? Then you should troubleshoot your connection issues and get faster, more stable connectivity. This article will help you save time and get that in a matter of minutes. But first...
Causes for iPad Internet Slow Performance
Today's iPads, and any other tablets for that matter, are very much dependent on the internet to work properly. Whether it's updates or apps that sync online, you need a fast and stable connection.
When you have slow internet on your iPad, you'll notice that apps lag too, as they wait to sync online. This is particularly the case with social media apps like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, etc.
The reasons for iPad internet slow issues include, but are not limited to:
- poor connection issues in rural or remote areas
- temporary ISP infrastructure issues
- you're too far from the Wi-Fi router / hotspot
- poor cellular coverage (for iPad models that use that)
When this happens, you'll see symptoms like slow downloads / uploads, buffering videos, video calls that stutter and websites / apps that take forever to load or refresh. So, how can you fix that?
[PRO TIP] Fix Slow Internet on iPad: Use Wi-Fi and Cellular at Once
You could, of course, spend time to troubleshoot your slow Internet connection on your iPad. And as you're paying for it, you should investigate on this - contact your ISP, etc. But when you need something that will always work, you should look at Speedify.
As a fast bonding VPN, Speedify allows you to use both your Wi-Fi and cellular connections at once on your iPad. Remember - that's "at once" and not "switching between them" - here's the difference.
Speedify dynamically sends traffic through both Wi-Fi and cellular depending on each network's performance, to get you the fastest, most stable and secure Internet at any given time. If one of the connections drops (e.g. your iPad connects to a sticky Wi-Fi hotspot), Speedify will move more traffic over cellular. And it's all seamless to you, even when streaming - you won't even know it happened till you check the stats in the app.
Speedify Fixes iPad Internet Slow Problems, Keeps Your Data Safe and Helps You Bypass Content Restrictions
Aside from getting you fast and stable Internet connectivity, Speedify uses servers in the cloud and encrypts your traffic to and from those servers. This means that your online activity is safe from hackers and cyber criminals that might be lurking on public Wi-Fi networks for example.
This comes in handy also when the network you're connected to restricts access to certain websites and apps - mostly streaming and social media ones - YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, etc. This is the case for many educational and office networks. The point is that with the traffic being encrypted, you can access those websites freely.
There's another upside to this: you can choose the servers to connect to, including those in other countries. So, if you're abroad or need to access a local resource within a country, connect to a server in the region where access is not blocked and you're all set!
In conclusion - using Speedify on your iPad will fix any slow Internet issues and provide peace of mind when using the Internet.
