A lot of us spend most of our time on our phones, using this piece of technological brilliance to capture memories, store information, and remain in contact with family and friends alike.

However, once they begin to slow down and request multiple charging sessions daily, the temptation to replace it with a new and reliable device becomes overwhelming.

But, replacing your new-generation iPhone at the onset of every issue is a costly (and often unsustainable) way to solve your problem.

So below are four simple tech tips you can follow to make your iPhone work faster before considering a replacement.

Let’s dive in!

1. Make Space On Your iPhone

You can quickly check how much memory space apps and media consume on your iPhone. Knowing your iPhone manages space will allow you to identify the power & space-intensive applications that are taking up so much of your phone’s performance.

You can visit your messages app and delete old threads you no longer need. Specifically, those messages containing lots of gifs, images, and videos as such messages consume the most space on your iPhone.

Also, deleting unnecessary music, videos & images, and applications will positively affect your iPhone’s performance status. Files (which can be any of the above) that use vast amounts of space on your device probably use up vast amounts of memory too, which can be very bad for your iPhone.

On your iPhone > Go to Settings > General > iPhone storage, and then delete all apps, audio, images, video, and message threads that are no longer relevant.

2. Clear Safari Cookies and Data

While clearing Safari cookies and data is a great way to boost your iPhone’s performance, you should note that this will result in Siri no longer suggesting URLs when browsing unless you have previously bookmarked it.

Some sites may require you to select your preferences again, while some may need you to log into your online account before accessing the service. 

3. Clear Apps That Aren’t In Use

We suggest that you avoid the “close your apps” fallacy that claims you’re improving your device’s performance by clearing your apps constantly because, in actuality, your iPhone consumes more power by refreshing the apps you just closed.

However, leaving apps running in the background takes up memory, regardless of whether they’re refreshing. So, we advise you to take the middle ground by clearing all non-essential applications, leaving the ones you frequently use throughout your day open.

Now, your iPhone requires less battery power to refresh the essential apps and saves on memory power when you close a social media app that’s no longer in use or clear a game that you are done playing.

4. Turn On Reduced Motion

If you’ve ever wondered how your iPhone can seamlessly switch between your apps with animations, it’s because of your device’s memory capability. These animations may affect your iPhone’s performance over time, contributing to your phone’s lagging.

So if you’re okay with the difference, head over to Reduce Motion > Accessibility > Motion: in your phone’s settings and toggle between on/off on the reduce motion option. While this method doesn’t create any additional memory on your iPhone, your device performs quicker because your iPhone isn’t directing power to zoom in/out of applications.

Final Word

Here we have it, guys; that’s all for today’s guide. Every solution in this article grants a surefire way to boost the performance of your iPhone. Also, remember that a faulty battery can contribute to your failing iPhone’s performance. So, head to Settings > Battery Health: to see if you need a change.

Bonus Tip: Restarting your iPhone every few days will help clear the digital caches that boost your battery health and memory.
