    Increase local memory?

    Had a request today to free up some memory on his iPad 2. Can't be done as far as I'm aware? Yes, you can close open apps by using the 4 finger gesture to slide the screen up and show which apps are open then hold on one till they wiggle and show the minus tick which you can touch to close them down but as far as I'm aware that has nothing to do with memory. I reckon he is stuck with the standard available memory on his 16GB device of circa 5GB?

    My eldest had a similar problem on her IPhone. She ended up wiping it and reinstalling from scratch. All the same apps, all the same music and pictures, but with 50% free space where previously she had none.

    You can't upgrade iPads at all physically, that's correct. You can only upgrade iOS.

    iPad 1 has 256MB, iPad 2 has 512MB and iPad 3 has 1024MB.

    It's also completely pointless.

    If they don't want to spend s on a shiny new 32GB-128GB iPad, they could buy a wireless external hard drive. @elsiegee40's suggestion sounds like a good thing to try first however.
