How to Speed Up a Slow iPhone

How to Speed Up iPhone - One of the reasons why iPhone is chosen by many people is its smooth and seamless interface. But along with its usage, as it does with other gadgets or smartphone, iPhone's performance will decrease and users may be aware of iPhone's slow performance. Sometimes, upgrading your iOS to the latest version may be the main reason why your iPhone's performance has become slower. If you ever feel your iPhone is not as fast as before, or maybe your iPhone's lagging, then we have solutions for this case. These are some tips and tricks how to speed up a slow iPhone:

1. Restart Your iPhone

How to restart iPhone to speed it up again
First thing and perhaps the easiest way to do when your iPhone seems slow is restarting it. Because when you restart your device, the unused cache will be automatically cleared & deleted. You all know how to restart iPhone, don't you? Just press and hold the Sleep/Wake Button and slide switch on the screen to turn off the iPhone. When it's already off, press the Sleep/Wake Button until Apple's logo appears.


2. Turn Off Visual Effect

Honestly, Visual Effect at the interface makes iPhone looks cooler, but it also makes the hardware overload. To turn off visual effect feature, open Settings > General > Accessibility > Increase Contrast then change Reduce Transparency to On.
You can also turn off motion feature on iPhone by opening Settings menu > General > Accessibility then turns on Reduce Motion. Turn them off will speed up your iPhone.


3. Turn Off Automatic Downloads

Go to Settings > App and iTunes Stores > Automatic Downloads. If you have only one device connected with Apple ID, let this feature on, but if you have many devices with just one Apple ID, then other devices will also update unnecessary apps on your iPhone. So, you have to update it manually or only when it's connected to WiFi by turning off Use Cellular Data on Settings > App and iTunes Stores.

4. Delete Unused App

I'm pretty sure we all have many apps in our phone, either important app like Social Networks apps (Facebook, Whatsapp, Twitter, Instagram, etc), Navigation's app, News apps, or unimportant apps like games and anything else. Well, if you want to speed up your iPhone, you must make a decision what apps you need most because unused apps will fulfill phone's memory, especially if they're running in the background.

5. Turn Off Siri

Enable/disable Siri

Siri is a personal assistant feature on iPhone Operating System (iOS), Siri can give advice while you're browsing or searching on iOS 9, even though it's cool and simplify the user experience, but Siri can slow down your iPhone's performance. To turn it off, go to Settings > General > Spotlight Suggestions > Siri Suggestions. Another feature leads to slow down performance is "Hey Siri". Just turn it off on Settings > General > Siri and feel the difference.


6. Use Default Apps

Actually, Default Apps by Apple were designed to be running properly on iPhone, they're designed for common functions like e-mail, navigation, and web browsing. Perhaps those apps aren't the best ones, but they're used to speed up iPhones performance.


7. Turn Off Background App

Some apps are still running on our iPhone's system (background), like synchronizing data or updating themselves without us knowing. Those activity impact on phone's memory and processor, and also slow down the performance and reducing battery. To turn off Background App and speed up iPhone, go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and shut them all down or maybe just some.


8. Clean Up Old Files

Clean up old files, like old photos and videos which you have backed up, old text messages, or old data (cached) can speed up your iPhone's system. To manage them, go to Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage > Manage Storage. Delete anything you don't need, you might uninstall some apps to clear them cache.


9. Clear Browsing Data

Clear history and website data in Safari

Clear browsing data in Safari could be done by going to Settings > Safari > Clear History and Website Data. Sometimes clearing browsing data in Safari makes the browser work slowly cause the browser requires some time to re-collect data, but after that, its performance will be faster.


10. Reset iPhone's Settings

Reset iPhone's settings to default is the last thing you can do if some tips above aren't effective. Reset settings mean all configurations and apps are back to default, like a new one. Here's how to do it : Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. Before you do it, remember your Apple ID and password you used before. But remember, think seriously before you reset iPhone's settings, cause once you do that you can't go back.

These are tips and trick to speed up a slow iPhone, we hope they can help solve your iPhone's problem. If your iPhone's performance still slow, just consider buying a new one. Thanks for reading.
