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).

iPad mini Wi-Fi, iOS 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.)


     Cheers, Tom

    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.

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

    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.
