iPad users mainly use the device to play games and watch videos. The videos can be purchased from iTunes Store or sync from computer with iTunes, and both of the methods are easy to be done. Therefore, the iPad users may have saved many videos in their iPad for an enjoyment. But due to the limited storage space in iPad, the videos may need to be deleted regularly to free up the storage space. And the post aims to show you how to delete videos from iPad.
