Question about Apple iPad 3 Tablet 64GB White WI-FI

1 Answer

Why do the apps on my iPad 3 blink when I am trying to delete them? Then the screen keeps blinking.

When I click on an app to delete it. It keeps blinking and it can not even turn it off. How do I stop this from happening?

    It wiggles but when I tap again to delete it freezes and then starts blinking and causes the others to blink. And I have to turn it off by holding the home button and the on/off button to get it to go off.

Not sure what you mean with blinking. When you press an app for several seconds, they all start wiggling. Only the ones with a little x on the top right, can be deleted by tagging the x.
But first reset the iPad by pressing both the home button and the on / off switch till it switches off. Wait more than a minute and switch on again.
Be aware you can delete apps and later reinstall them for free, on the same account but for games all settings and scores will be gone.

    If nothing helps, try to make a backup on your computer, using iTunes. Then contact Apple support here:

How do I delete saved page apps from an ipad 3? I can dlete some but some won`t delete, they just blink and diapper on & off so I have to reboot my ipad?


Are the apps you're trying to delete ones you downloaded? Some apps were on your iPad when you bought it and those can't be deleted. Only those apps that you downloaded can be deleted from your home screens.

How do I obtain more storage in my Apple IPad?


Hi Anonymous,
This might help you, just follow these:
1. Go to your iPad's home screen by clicking on the home button. Click on Settings to access your settings.
2. Go to General in Settings and click on Usage. This will allow you to manage your storage, as you'll see a list of what's stored on your iPad. Look at how much storage you have available. This will inform you how much you need to get rid of, but not too much because you still have plenty of space.
3. Click on Manage Storage to start managing your storage. See what apps you have and how much space they take up. If any apps take up a lot of space, and you don't need them any more, you know you need to delete them.

4. Delete unwanted apps. To delete an app: •Tap on the relevant app in the list. You will see the button Delete App. You will also see the app's size and its Documents and Data usage (including data cached for quick access).
•Tap on the Delete App button, and the app will be deleted. •Note that the apps that come pre-installed (such as the Music and Videos apps) cannot be deleted.
•Take care not to delete any apps you need, especially for work. Instead, make room for them by determining which apps you no longer use or want (such as games, PDFs or other items you've finished with).

Remove baidu from iPad


Have you installed a Baidu app on your iPad and wanna remove it?

Well, the first method recommended for you is to directly delete apps from Home screen on your iPad.
1. You only need to keep touching the icon of the app until it wiggles with an X at the upper left corner.
2. Then tap the X and choose "Delete" in the pop-up dialog. You will get the apps deleted with no efforts.

Sometimes you cannot see the X and don't know how to delete apps on iPad directly, you can check the Settings at this moment. Then you can try to delete the apps on your iPad again.
1. Check the "Settings", then scroll down a bit and tap on the "General" option.
2. Tap on "Usage" (older version of iOS) or tap on the "Storage & iCloud Usage" (newer version of iOS).
3. You need to tap on "Manage Storage" and you'll see a list of all app installed on your iPad. Simply select the app and tap on "Delete" to delete that app.

There are also some other methods to help you remove unwanted apps from your iOS device. Click the following link to know more.
