    I've had my iPad Mini 1, which is running the last IOS update for it (IOS 9.3.5) for 2-3 years now.

    Every now and then, I get a blank screen or the iPad quits to the home screen whilst playing video embedded in a page or whilst I'm on a graphically intensive web page.

    I've only used half of the disk space.

    Does anyone know what the problem might be? The iPad works fine apart from this annoying issue.

    Thanks.

    The iPad mini 1 has only 512MB of RAM. Memory is limited and when you load a complex web page, there's a higher chance of it running out and abruptly quitting.

    Try puffin browser instead of safari I think it runs better on older devices
