iPhone has completed the 10 years of existence this year (2017) and in these glorious years, it has made a great mark in the technology world. Over the course of this one decade, this device has become one of the most famous consumer devices in the world. One of the great things about owning an iPhone is its longevity and unmatchable iOS update support.

But any good device becomes old with time and there could be many reasons for that. In this article, we are going to talk about the six tips which will help you get your device more faster.

Instantly make iPhone faster by clearing RAM

There are moments when you’ve been using your iOS device from a long time and you feel like it’s lagging while completing some task. The longer you use your phone, more processes are run and they keep using your phone’s memory. A method to clear RAM is by rebooting your phone, which is much like restarting your PC to make things better.

  • Now hold down the home button of your iPhone for few seconds until the home screen appears. This will instantly clear your phone’s RAM without the need for a reboot.

Free up storage space on your iPhone

The price of iPhones increases sharply as we try to buy one with a higher storage space. This huge price difference forces a user to go for a device with lower storage space. The lack of expandable storage worsens the situation further. As a result, the low or no storage space makes your iPhone slower. To speed up iPhone, there are few simple steps that you can take.

  • You need to navigate to Settings → General → iPhone Storage. There, you’ll be able to see your phone storage.
  • This option also shows the storage space breakdown, i.e., how much space is being used by which application. This way you can figure out your strategy to clear storage.

Disable automatic downloads on iPhone

To change this setting and make iPhone run faster, you need to navigate to Settings → iTunes & App Store.
