No, you’re not imagining it. Your iPhone slows down over time. There can be many reasons for this to happen. The list covers a variety of reasons, from using an older iOS version to having too many apps running in the background to the animation effect that slows down your smartphone. If you’re also dealing with a slow iPhone, here are top tips and tricks you can use to speed it up.
restart your iphone
One of the brute force techniques that you can use to speed up your iPhone is to restart it. To do this, all you have to do is press and hold the volume button and side button for 30 seconds and drag the power-off slider to turn off the device.
Update Software on Your iPhone
Another reason why your iPhone might be slow is because of issues with the older iOS version that you are using. This can be easily fixed, simply by downloading the latest version of iOS on your iPhone. Here’s what you need to do: Settings app > General > Software Update > Install & Update.
Free up space on your iPhone
An iPhone that is running out of space tends to be slow. One of the easiest ways to fix this is to delete unused apps and files from your iPhone. You can also delete long videos (if you have them) from your iPhone so that you can free up some space on your iPhone. Here’s how you can free up space on your iPhone: Settings > Storage & iCloud Usage > Storage > Manage Storage. Here you’ll find a breakdown of the space you’re using and what it’s being used for. You can then use this information to delete files and apps you no longer need.
turn off background app refresh
Background app refresh can also slow down your iPhone over time. The easiest way to do this is to turn this feature off. Here’s what you need to do: Settings app > General > Background app refresh > Toggle off Background app refresh.
turn off location services
Another feature that can slow down your iPhone is the Location Services feature. Here’s how you can speed it up: Settings app > Privacy > Location Services > Toggle Location Services off.
close unnecessary apps
One of the easiest ways to make your iPhone run faster is to close all unnecessary apps running in the background and eating up your precious system resources. It’s worth noting that apps like video editors or games running in the background can slow down your iPhone significantly.
turn on slow down on your iphone
Lastly, you can speed up your old iPhone by reducing the animation effect on your iPhone and turning on the Reduce Motion on iPhone feature. In particular, the animation may look good, but it also eats up precious system resources that could be used to speed up your iPhone. Here’s what you need to do: Settings app > Accessibility > Motion > Toggle on the Reduce motion button.
