5 Tricks That Will Make Your iPhone Run Much Smoother

One of the many reasons Apple’s iPhone lineup has been so popular over the years is because of how smooth and consistent the user experience tends to be. Is your iPhone feelin’ a little rusty? Is it not running as smoothly and quickly as it once did? Don’t despair. When it comes to mobile devices, however, there are always little tricks that can help smooth things out even more.

There are a few things you can do right now to make your iPhone work better, and they won’t cost you a cent. These tricks are especially important for people who own older iPhones and iPads – all of the new features in Apple’s recent iOS updates bring additional heft to the platform that can really slow older hardware down.

Here are 5 tricks that will make your iPhone run much smoother.

1. Get rid of crap you don’t need

You’d be surprised by what’s taking up so much space on your iPhone. So you should be aware of what’s on their phone and to clear out clutter that is no longer in use. To check your usage, go to Settings, then General, then scroll down and click Usage. It might take a minute to load, but you’ll be able to see which apps are taking up the most space on your iPhone. Then, remove what you can. That weird game you never play might actually be taking up a ton of space on your phone. Trash it!

You can also use Syncios to delete undesired videos, songs or uninstall unwanted apps in one click. All without iTunes.

Delete songs and videos with iOS Management Tool.

  • Download and install Syncios iOS Management.
  • Connect iPhone/iPad/iPod to computer and launch Syncios.
  • Click Media tab on the left panel and choose the media type from right panel. Then check the undesired files and then click the Remove button. Hold down the Ctrl key to select multiple files.

Uninstall apps with iOS Management Tool.

  • Download and install Syncios iOS Management.
  • Connect iPhone/iPad/iPod to computer and launch Syncios.
  • Click Apps tab on the left. Then check the unwanted apps and then click the Uninstall button. Hold down Ctrl key to select multiple apps.

2. Treat it like a computer and clear your browser’s cache

You know clearing your computer browser’s cache is beneficial, but you probably haven’t been clearing your iPhone’s browser’s history, cookies and data. To do this, go to Settings, then Safari (or whatever browser app you use), then you’ll see “Clear History” and “Clear Cookies and Data.”

If the letters are blue, that means you can clear the data. Press both buttons. If they’re grey, that means you’ve just recently cleared the data, so there’s nothing to remove.

3. Delete old texts

iMessage history is stored in the cloud but heavy SMS users can definitely clear some space by deleting old conversations that are no longer needed. Simply open a chat, and then tap and hold on a sent message until you see the “More… ” option pop up. Then choose the messages you want to delete or tap “Delete all.

If you have a lot of old chats you don’t need, you can also swipe chats to the left in the Messages app’s conversations view to reveal a hidden “Delete” button.

4. Turn off auto app updates

Most people enjoy getting their hands on new features afforded by app updates, but if speed and performance is your top priority, disabling auto-updates might be a good idea. You can turn off the auto updates and update manually when you’re connected to Wi-Fi and plugged in. To turn off auto app updates, go to Settings, then scroll down and click iTunes & App Store.

There, push all of the buttons to the left to turn off automatic downloads. It looks like this:

5. Turn off location services

This tip is important not just for speed, but also for battery life and privacy. A lot of apps use location services to determine where you are, and it’s generally not necessary. Go to Settings, then Privacy, then Location Services. From there, you can choose to turn it off completely (not necessary) or just turn it off for certain apps. Some, like Maps, obviously need your location to best serve you. But many, like Facebook, don’t need to know where you are. Turn off location services for apps that don’t necessitate it.
