Does Restarting stop the lag on IPAD?

Hey Community, Recently I’ve been experiencing some lag on My Ipad Pro, Like when I do a 2h+ flight. Is it because I never restart my Ipad prior to a flight? Like especially yesterday at EGLL I could Barely land because it lagged like every second, when there was like 20-40 planes on ground

It would be interesting to know what kind of iPad Pro you use.
From my personal experience I know that connecting your iPad to a charger with enough power helps to reduce the lag, so does lowering the screen brightness. Maybe remove the case to achieve a better heat flow. Last but not least: even though it’s kind of annoying to do that on an iPad Pro, lower the graphic settings.

Regarding the restart: that would reset the ram, but iPad OS is very optimized to do that itself without restarting. Resetting the scenery cache in IF‘s Settings is the better option.

Hope I could help,
Greetings, Mats

Edit: my device is a 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 256gb

Hi !
For my Ipad Pro it helps as first aid to close the screen and open the Ipad again resuming the flight as soon as possible.

I almost crashed at LIRF during take off due heavy lag few minutes ago and almost got an speed violation due I got off runway… I forgot to shut the screen before taking off. :(

Mine does that at busy airports. I have started closing everything and restarting every day to try to clear the cache. I would say that one time clearing the cache as someone said before helps to include brightness and good connection.

Yup, my App crashed today first time ever at KSFO, earlier the lag settled after some time.
I turned all graphics on lowest… but simply my Ipad Pro couldn’t keep up with in heavy traffic.

I am getting a faster internet in couple of weeks, I hope that helps, if the lag would be connection related.

Due to expert server blowing up right now for the 10 year birthday, I suppose it is happening to a handful of people 😁
