How to Speed Up a Slow iPhone？
Lots of our readers ask us how to speed up a slow, old iPhone - it's a common problem. If you're still using an iPhone that's two or more generations old, the chances are that it isn't as fast as it used to be.
You may also find that your phone is a bit slow if you haven't got a lot of space free, even if it's a newer model. Or maybe your iPhone has been performing more sluggishly since you updated iOS.
Here are some methods to try.
1. Check Your iOS
Assuming your iPhone supports the latest version, updating should speed things up, and this is generally our first suggestion.
But be wary. It's a great strategy for newish devices, but on older smartphones, it's possible that updating will actually slow it down, because it struggles to run the more demanding OS.
