Keep your tablet optimized with Device care

Just like people, your tablet can get tired if it's constantly working. That's where Device care comes in. This feature can clean up your tablet's memory and storage to keep it fresh. It also provides an overview of your tablet's battery, storage, RAM, and security status.

Note: Security is only available in Device care on certain carriers.

Quick optimization

The more you're on your tablet, the more memory and storage will be used. Over time, unwanted files can build up. Optimize your tablet so it always runs at its best.

To improve your tablet's performance, navigate to Settings. Tap Device care, and then tap Optimize now. When the optimization is complete, review what's been optimized, and then tap Done.

Here's what optimization does to help your tablet's performance:

  • Identifies apps that use excessive battery power and clears unneeded items from the memory.

  • Deletes unnecessary files and closes apps running in the background.

  • Scans for malware.

Optimize battery

Your tablet's battery life depends on the apps you use and the features you have set. For example, if you have your brightness set to max, the battery will drain faster.

With the Battery settings, you can view battery usage data, extend your battery life, and select apps to go to sleep.

From Settings, search for and select Battery under Device care. Use the available features, such as the different Power saving modes, to improve your tablet's battery usage.

Optimize storage

Ugh, that ad keeps bugging you. Did you know that ad files and other unnecessary data can be stored on your tablet without your knowledge?

Free up storage space by using the Storage settings and will delete unnecessary data such as cached, residual, and advertisement files.

From Settings, search for and select Storage under Device care. Tap Clean now to delete unnecessary data.

Optimize memory

Sometimes, apps will continue running the background, even if you close them. You may have 10 apps still running and not even realize it. You can free up memory by stopping those apps.

From Settings, search for and select Memory under Device care. Tap Clean now to improve your tablet's performance.
