Have you been going “eenie minie miny moe” when your iPad says “There is not enough available space…”? It is almost like the scene of children about to play the game “Tag”, when you are deciding which app, video, or music to delete just to accommodate the new app, video or music. Sadly, with the fixed space that comes with the iPad, this scene recurs as there’s always a constant need to add new apps, video, photos and games to your device. However, rather than chopping and changing the content of your iPad every now and then, there are other options to upgrade iPad memory.
4 options to upgrade iPad memory
To clear the cache on your iPad, you will need to clear stored data from internet sessions, and data stored while using your different apps. Here’s how you can go about this:
Option 1: External storage device for iPad
Option 2: Delete or manage your storage space
Option 3: Cloud Storage
Option 4: Storage utility
Computers and tablet are constantly running processes, storing loads of data (cookies, history, application data, Safari caches, app caches) along the way – both useful and useless. In the long run, the accumulation of these data begins to distort the smooth running of your device; a process that takes a second now needs three seconds, apps are not loading as fast as they ought to etc. That is why there is a need to call in the professionals to clean up all the unwanted files, thereby adding memory to iPad for other uses.

DIY tricks and tips to add memory to iP ad
There also simple DIY tricks and tips that you can use to add memory to iPad, like clearing Safari cache, clearing offline reading list and browsing incognito.
1. Clearing Safari cache
Caching is used to improve the speed and loading time of data while browsing. This is to improve the page loading time the next time the same page is loaded. This is assuming the content of the page hasn’t changed from the last time of visit. These data (cookies, history, and data) can be cleared by simply going to the settings app that comes with your iPad.
2. Clearing Offline reading list
Offline reading lists are used to access articles when the “airplane” mode has been turned on. A feature for those who would love to have articles read while traveling, or when they are going to places where network won’t be available. Very often, iPad users forget to remove articles from their reading list when they are done. You can clear articles by swiping across them, and tapping the delete button.
3. Browsing Incognito
When you browse incognito, your browser stores no information about your browsing session – no cookies, no history, no caching. This helps keep your phone void of unnecessary data, and is especially good for those who regularly delete their browsing history. You can turn on private (incognito) browsing by tapping the icon for tabs; on the bottom left hand of the screen, you’ll see the word “Private”. Tap on private to activate private browsing.
