I have an ipad mini 64gb wifi. I have about 15 gb left of storage, and my iPad has begun to lag. I got a warning when playing a game to day. It said "iOS memory warning". How to fix this? I think it's wired I has begun lagging, and I don't think it's because it getting low on storage, since I have about 15 gb left. I'm running newst firmware (6.1.3).

    How much space is your "Other" using.


    How Do I Get Rid Of The “Other” Data Stored On My iPad Or iPhone?



    With an iOS device, the “Other” space in iTunes is used to store things like documents, settings, caches, and a few other important items. If you sync lots of documents to apps like GoodReader, DropCopy, or anything else that reads external files, your storage use can skyrocket. With iOS 5/6, you can see exactly which applications are taking up the most space. Just head to Settings > General > Usage, and tap the button labeled Show All Apps. The storage section will show you the app and how much storage space it is taking up. Tap on the app name to get a description of the additional storage space being used by the app’s documents and data. You can remove the storage-hogging application and all of its data directly from this screen, or manually remove the data by opening the app. Some applications, especially those designed by Apple, will allow you to remove stored data by swiping from left to right on the item to reveal a Delete button.


    Try this  - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.)

    Try this:


    1. Close all apps in the Task Bar. Double-click the Home button and hold apps down for a second or two. Tap the minus sign to close app.


    2. Hold the Sleep and Home button down until you see the Apple Logo.

    Hello Diavonex,

    Thank you also for your respond. I closed all the running app, and rebooted my iPad, it did not work either.

    I don't think it has anything to do with the storage memory, 15GB okay.

    Nope I didnt think that either, since I have so much storage left, it would not be the issue. I think it might be the ram, but I am not sure. Usually I run alot of apps, and dont close them down before opening another app or game, and it has never been an issue before, its just recently it started showing up with the warning.

    Suggest you get in touch with the developer of the game and ask them for an explaination.

    Hey did you by chance just download that game? My mini did the same thing with that game. I haven't had any others issues.

    It started when I downloaded the game (Injustice - Gods Among Us). Otherwise this has NEVER happend before, I really dont know what is doing this, since I have had more power consuming apps and games installed before. But my best guess is that the game is killing the ram on the device. Anyelse has any ideads?
