IPad 1 got very slow after installing ios5

After I have installed ios5 my iPad 1 got very slow. I press the settings button and wait for 5 seconds to appear.
Any ideas?

First, we need to accept that the iPad will be slower under iOS5 than iOS4.  This is a standard situation, caused by each iOS upgrade being optimized for the newest iDevices – which have much faster processors.  (You should see how slow an iPhone 3G is under iOS4!)
Mine isn't dreadfully slow, but it is slower than under iOS4.  Apple's ideal solution would be to upgrade to the iPad 2; assuming that (like me) you don't want to do this, the best way to speed up the iPad is to do a soft reset.  (This has helped me in almost every situation where the iPad--or my iPhone--got very slow, or had too many crashes.)  Hold down the Home button and the Sleep button until the screen first goes black, then shows a white apple symbol.  It takes a while to finish resetting, but it clears most of the data that cause the slowdown.
To my surprise, by the way, it appears that shutting the device off (hold down the power button until the "slide to power off" bar appear, then slide) does not do as complete a job resetting the iPad as the soft reset.

    Can anyone help

    You need to install more RAM.
    OS X Mavericks really needs a real world "working" RAM minimum of 4 GBs.
    If you can afford to install more RAM than this, more RAM is always better.
    Your year and Mac model can take up to 16 GBs of RAM.
    Correct and reliable Mac RAM can be purchased from online Mac RAM sources Crucial memory or OWC (macsales.com).
    You need to update all of your third party software if there are OS X Mavericks updates that can be applied.
    You may need to,ACTUALLY, go to the third party developers' websites if there are no updates through the Mac App Store.
    Update all of your Web browser Internet plugins and extensions, also.
    Good Luck!

    Fixing a Mavericks Installation Problem
    How to manage a failed OS X Mavericks installation | MacFixIt - CNET Reviews.
    Try these in order:
    1. a. Resetting your Mac's PRAM and NVRAM
        b. Intel-based Macs: Resetting the System Management Controller (SMC)
    2. Restart the computer in Safe Mode, then restart again, normally. If this doesn't help, then:
         Boot to the Recovery HD: Restart the computer and after the chime press and hold down the
         COMMAND and R keys until the Utilities menu screen appears. Alternatively, restart the computer and
         after the chime press and hold down the OPTION key until the boot manager screen appears.
         Select the Recovery HD and click on the downward pointing arrow button.
    3. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions: Upon startup select Disk Utility from the Utilities menu. Repair the Hard Drive and Permissions as follows.
    When the recovery menu appears select Disk Utility. After DU loads select your hard drive entry (mfgr.'s ID and drive size) from the the left side list.  In the DU status area you will see an entry for the S.M.A.R.T. status of the hard drive.  If it does not say "Verified" then the hard drive is failing or failed. (SMART status is not reported on external Firewire or USB drives.) If the drive is "Verified" then select your OS X volume from the list on the left (sub-entry below the drive entry,) click on the First Aid tab, then click on the Repair Disk button. If DU reports any errors that have been fixed, then re-run Repair Disk until no errors are reported. If no errors are reported click on the Repair Permissions button. Wait until the operation completes, then quit DU and return to the main menu. Select Restart from the Apple menu.
    4. Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion, Mavericks: Reboot from the Recovery HD. Select Reinstall Lion/Mountain Lion, Mavericks from the Utilities menu, and click on the Continue button.
    Note: You will need an active Internet connection. I suggest using Ethernet if possible because it is three times faster than wireless.

  • My macbook pro is very slow after installing mountain lion

    my macbook pro is very slow after installing mountain lion?  Is anyone else having this issue?

    If you don't use an SSD and bump your RAM up to 8 Gb's you may experience slow speeds, but I noticed slow speeds with your general configuration in SL.
    one thing you should consider right now is, Spotlight is Reindexing your hard drive, that takes time and resources, (resources which you don't necessarily have to spare).
    If you continue feeling like your performance is slow, you have a few options with this computer (I have the same one).
    the express card slot can house a wintec SSD drive. That little door on the side of your machine is pure gold for a really quick solution for speeding up your machine. I have one in mine right now i'm using as a scratch disk for CS6 but I used to boot from it, and the speed boost was out of this world.
    You could take out the internal HDD and put in a new SSD (I have a Vertex 4 from OCZ) it is completely over kill but my experience is pretty fast and I keep up with the later MBP models colleagues have.
    There are some other options for you like taking out the optical drive (however I don't know if I'm supposed to talk about that here). Google Data Doubler.
    You need to also set it to always use the 9600 chipset, this will increase performance a lot too. to do this go to system preferences>energy saver>Better Performance. This switches the video card to the better one and makes a world of difference.
    Lastly, your RAM. after an EFI Firmware update, our computer support up to 8GBs of RAM. Do it!

  • Bridge is very slow after installing Photoshop CC

    I just installed Photoshop CC last night and today Bridge is VERY slow. Every folder I open even if I opened it yesterday has to build some kind of an index.
    Also it keeps crashing it never crashed before.

    Yes I understand that my point is it only started to do this after I installed Photoshop CC. I have been using bridge CS6 for 3 months and it has never been this slow or crash. IT crashed 5 times today.
    Note if you are using the Creeative cloud you may not know this but every 3 months you will have to log in and re accept all the licenses for all the products you open and want to run again, every 3 months. I just learned that today as well.

  • My Mac is very slow, after installing mac OS x snow leopard

    I am quite sad to note that the new Mac OS X Snow leopard software is a big let down. After installing i found my mac has become very slow, its taking a long time to process applications and stuff. It does not shut down completely, i get an error message most of the time saying i should press the power button for 5 seconds in order to shut down or off the computer completely.
    Please advise should i just go back to the old version or is there a fix to this

    Did you update your applications as well? Which are slow? How much memory is installed? How full is the hard drive?

  • After installing Mavericks my computer is running very slow, After installing Mavericks my computer is running very slow

    Two days ago I installed Mavericks to my MacBook Pro.  The computer is very, very slow. I did not have that problem before.  Also as I change between windows the whole screen is blurred with horizontal lines.  Once safari, email or another app opens up it take a few minutes before I can actually use it.  The cursor pauses like crazy.  Quite frustrating. I checked the captibality before downloading and it met all the requirements.  Help please!!

  • My Ipad3 is very slow after installing 8.02 and needs a hard reset every 2 minutes.

    Hello Community,
    I had a wonderful running Ipad3 32gb running on IOS7, now after installing IOS8.02 this device is slow (e.g. Safari) and needs a restart (hard reset) every to minutes because it freezed up. I´m quite unhappy. I tried to stop processes and have a enough free space on the disk. Nothing helped.
    I can´t imagine that you beta-tested IOS8 on the IPAD3?
    Any solution by Apple?

    (A) Try reset all settings
    Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings
    (B) Setup as new (data will be lost if you do not have backup)
    Settings>General>Reset>Erase all content and settings

  • Boot very slow after installed Yosemite

    I have a Macbook air from October 2013. I have successfully upgraded to Yosemite yesterday from the App store, but the problem begins after that. It boots very slow, sometimes even halt. How can I fix the issue? Thanks.

    Not sure if this may solve your problem, but I've come across this on one of the Macs here.
    Open the disk utility, verify & repair disk permissions, verify & repair the disk if needed.
    Restart the mac, hold down Option-Command-P-R to reset the PRAM. It should reboot again.
    This helped the bad mac, and we appear to be back to normal.
    On my other mac, I go from cold to logged-in within about 12 seconds (I run an SSD).

  • IPad 2 is getting very slow after installing iOS8. Is Apple comming with a fix for it?

    iOS8 is making ipad2 extremely slow. I can't work with it anymore. When is Apple comming with a fix?

    Now, you can downgrade your iPad from iOS 8 to iOS 7, BUT do it quickly. A few days later, the way is not available any longer:
    1. Download iOS 7.1.2 firmware for your iPad 2. (just google it)
    2. Make sure you have install the latest version of iTunes.
    2. Connect your iPad to computer via a USB cable.
    3. After detected, your iPad will be shown in the left column. Click your iPad to show the control panel.
    Note: Make sure you have backups of your iPad. if not, backup it now.
    4. Under Summary tab, hold on Shift key in Windows(Option key in Mac ) click Restore iPhone....
    5. In the pop-up window, find the firmware on your computer and click Open.
    6. Then, iTunes will downgrade your iPad to iOS 7.1.2.

  • IPad 3 very slow after updating to iOS 8

    I Updated my iPad 3 to iOS 8 the day it was released and almost immediately after it finished updating I started having problems.
    1) The Wifi connection is incredibly slow on every device I update.
    2) The entire iPad 3 itself runs very slowly whether I am running apps or switching between (yes I have been shutting down programs when not using them as to conserve RAM but it still runs poorly)
    I also did download 8.0.1 with no new issues but did also download and install 8.0.2
    I just would like to know if there is anything I can do to get better performance back to my iPad.

    No, this is definitely an iOS 8.3 bug, Allen. I have an iPad mini (original, 24/12 old) and an iPhone 5 (not S, 18/12 old). Updated both from 8.2 to 8.3. I keep them and the apps up to date and run a tight ship.
    Since the update, the iPhone has been behaving normally.
    However, starting immediately after the update, the iPad has been rebooting: when you plug it into the power and it goes to sleep, it reboots itself. This NEVER ONCE happened before the 8.3 update -- and I think I started with this iPad on iOS5 or at least 6, with all the updates inbetween. If you want to use it again shortly after plugging it in, you have to wait about five-ten minutes (as other have reported).  So far, it has always rebooted successfully. But you do have to put in your passcode in response to "you have to enter your passcode upon rebooting" message; and tell it to trust your current computer connect once again.
    It just now rebooted itself once again when plugged into the computer USB port, while in the middle of a sync (the screen went to sleep). Not happy about that; potential to damage data.
    I confirm: this NEVER happened before 8.3, and it now reliably happens EVERY TIME I plug the iPad into power and it goes to sleep. I have three power sources (computer USB, individual Apple charger, aftermarket reserve battery charter) and it happens with all of them.
    As far as I can tell, it only reboots itself once per charger-plugin, and doesn't do so again until you unplug it and plug it back in again (somewhat confident, but not 100% sure, of that).
    Hope that helps. The bug needs squashing, and soon.

  • Why is my MacBook Pro very slow after installing Mountain Lion 10.8.5. - Solutions?

    Hello, hello
    After waiting quite a while - I paid the relatively small amount, and got myselves a new OS.
    But I am very disappointed of the speed - I see that this also was a problem with OS Lion?
    Please assist me. Perhaps others have this problem as well?
    Some info:
    - 2,66 GHz Intel Core i7 processor
    - 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3
    - Sometimes I run the Parallels Desktop 6 and 9 software, does this affect specs of the new OS?
    Hope to hear from you guys.

    With only 4GB of RAM, how much do you have devoted to the virtual machine running under Parallels? Even if it's a small amount, it's going to make page outs and swaps used very high. From my perspective, 8GB of RAM is the 'sweet spot' for running Mountain Lion.
    I'm assuming that you've a 15" mid-2010 MacBook Pro? If so, you can speed things up by installing the maximum 8GB of RAM. Go RAM shopping at Crucial or OWC.
    Other than upgrading your RAM, the only thing that you can do to speed up your machine is to install a SSD. You can also check the SSDs at Crucial and OWC and decide if one is right for you.
