I then opened a game app and ther was a ghost of the book I was reading. i can close a game app and you can see a shadow of the game app? is this serious?

Hello tonifromgering,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities. It's my understanding the images from previously used apps appear in apps you're currently using on your iPad Air. I can surely see how this could be a bit concerning. I've got some steps that can help resolve this issue.

If you haven't already, I recommend restarting your iPad. Restarting can resolve many unexpected behaviors.
Restart your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch

If the issue persists, reinstall iOS with iTunes to address possible software issues. When reinstalling iOS, iTunes will completely remove your current software and install a fresh version. While iTunes will try to do this without removing data, it's a good idea to make sure you have a recent backup before trying this step.

Have a fantastic day!
