How to Delete a Recorded Video from the iPad in iOS 7

Your iPad that is running on the iOS 7 operating system has a camera that allows you to take pictures and record videos. At first it can be a little awkward to use the camera on the iPad, but the large screen makes it easy to frame a shot correctly and see how the image or video will look when it’s a larger size. This can lead you to start recording lots of videos while you are using your iPad. But these videos can be quite large, and will quickly consume the limited storage space that you have on your tablet. Fortunately you can delete recorded videos from your iPad without even connecting it to a computer.

Do you need a simple backup solution, or a convenient place to store your files? A portable external hard drive is both an affordable and convenient solution to both of these options. Check out Amazon today for the best price on a portable external hard drive.
