I have an Apple iPad Mini 16GB WiFi 7.9" Tablet and keep getting a warning of limited space left. I thought I had plenty of available space, since I am not on Face Book and do not store photos or music. I do, however, have a lot of casino-type games and two on-line horse racing betting accounts.

I wonder if you could tell me a way to free up some space.

Thank You [email protected]

I am Vinod. I will try my best to help you resolve this issue.

On your ipad, let's go to settings > general > about

There, let me know what is the "available" space.

Thank You

Thank you, Sandra

Don't worry. You have enough free space on the ipad.

Are you getting a message that you don't have enough space in the icloud?

On your ipad, go to settings > icloud > storage and backup

There, what is the available space?

Is that the available space as well?

Since you are having enough space on the ipad, I am not sure where you are getting the error message? Is it while browsing through the web? or when you turn on the ipad?

Yes. It said 5GB free

Also, let me tell you, I just realized I had numerous e-mails waiting to be read, so I addressed those. Would that have been part of the problem?

As to when the warning comes, it's when I am playing a game.
Even if you have numerous emails, since you have more than 7GB free space, you should not have a problem.

Since it happens while playing a game, it could mostly be an advertisement.

Is it happening while playing all the games? or does it happen specifically for one game? If it happens for just one game, mostly that could be an advertisement.

Anyway, try a simple reset first. Press and hold the power button and the home button together until you see an apple logo.

this will refresh the memory on the ipad. Let me know if you still get the same message.
