Tap on Settings > General > Storage & iCloud Usage and tap on Manage Storage under Storage. Here you can see which apps and data are consuming the most storage on your iPhone. Try to go through the list and delete items that you do not need on the iPhone. There might be apps that you have not used in ages and they are still on your iPhone.




Disable unwanted indexing in Spotlight search

Spotlight searches lots of type of content like Applications, Contacts, Music, Podcasts, Mails, Events etc., when you might use it only for contacts, applications, and music. So uncheck the type of content you don’t want to search by going to Settings > General > Spotlight Search.

Turn off Push Notifications

If you receive a lot of push notifications, your battery can take a hit, so make sure you turn off push for apps that you don’t frequently by navigating to Settings > Notifications > Scroll down to the Include section to see the list of apps and tap on any of them to turn notifications off.

Troubleshooting

Restart/Reset Your iPhone
Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

Resetting Network Settings
Reset network settings by tapping Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings. This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.

Battery Maintenance
Apple advices users to go through at least one charge cycle per month (charging the battery to 100% and then completely running it down). So if you haven’t done it already, it may be a good time to do it. Power cycling your device helps in recalibrating the battery indicator more accurately.

Delete Apple Stock Apps that You Never Use




Now with iOS 10, you can delete all the native/stock Apple apps that you never used such as the Compass. Simply hold the app icon for a second or two and then tap on the ‘X’ mark at the edge to remove the app from your iPhone.

Manage iOS 10 Animation Related Issues

iOS 10 has lot of new animation features that can dazzle up a new iPhone such as the iPhone 7. If you are on an older iPhone, this may lead to sluggishness and slowness.

In order to get a handle on these animations, you can turn on Reduce motion on the accessibility settings. Turning on this setting stops the iOS from eating up valuable resources.

Disable Raise To Wake Feature

We love this feature on iOS 10. The new raise to wake feature only works with the iPhones that have the updated motion-co-processor. Since this feature gets triggered when you move the iPhone, it does end up consuming some battery power on your device.

If you are having problems with battery life on your older iPhone, you may want to try disabling this feature to see if it helps your iPhone.

In order to Disable the Raise to Wake feature, Tap on Settings > Display and Brightness > and turn off the switch next to Raise to Wake Setting.
