How to Delete Video Off iPad 2

Once you have learned how to record a video on your iPad 2, it’s a simple task to record nearly anything that you may want to watch again in the future. But recorded video takes up a lot of space, and your iPad has, at most, 64 GB of hard drive storage. So if you are running out of space for installing additional apps, a simple solution is to delete some of the larger videos that you don’t need from your iPad. You can learn how by following the tutorial below.


How to Delete a Recorded Video from the iPad 2

We’ve previously written about uploading photos and videos to Dropbox, which is a good solution if you don’t connect your iPad to iTunes very often. But if you have not offloaded a video that you are about to delete to a cloud storage service like Dropbox or your computer, then that video is going to be gone. So make sure that you will not need it again before you delete it.
