I barely will have 3-4 tabs open and maybe 4-5 other apps 'paused' in the background, but when I switch from one app to Safari or from one tab to another, my pages reload more than 50% of the time. It is getting pretty annoying. I never had this problem on my iPhone 5 on which I don't ever close paused apps and have 10-12 tabs open sometimes. I don't understand why my iPad Air is performing worse than my iPhone 5? Shouldn't the iPad perform better since it has newer hardware? Is there something wrong with my iPad? Please note that this is my first ever iPad, so I don't have any experience with older models. I set up my iPad as new and have only installed Netflix, Youtube and the Apple apps on it so far. I have the 16GB model with 5.5GB free space. Any advice is welcome.
