I tried out & found the following tips/tricks helpful for my iPad:
- Closing Apps: Never knew that just hitting the home screen wasn't closing an app..... I had like 20 apps open! It didn't seem to be affecting the speed of my iPad, but it just seems like a good thing to actually close apps...
- Turning off notifications - Most of the apps I use are purely for entertainment, so I really don't need to receive notifications from them. Now, I no longer will :)
- Tips to extend battery life: I've noticed that my battery life seems to drain more quickly than I think it should, so hopefully the setting changes I made will help that
