Top 3 Free Ways to Speed Up iPhone, iPad and iPod

Is your iPhone, iPad or iPod moving slowly after updating to a new iOS (for instance, iOS 10/9.3.3/8.2/8.1/8), installing some apps or shooting a lot of photos?

If your iDevice carries too much, it's unlikely that it will run smoothly. Instead, your iPhone would run more sluggish, iPad would freeze up now and then, or apps would take longer time to open. Thankfully, there are a few things you can do to speed up iPhone, iPad and iPod and improve the performance of your devices.

1. Uninstall Unwanted/Unused Apps

Many of the apps on your iOS 10/9/8/7 devices are not frequently used. You can delete these unwanted or unused apps to boost performance. On the home screen of your iDevice, head to Settings > General > Usage. At the top of the page under the Storage header, you will see how much available and used space you have and a list of your apps and the amount of space each occupies. To delete an app, find it, tap and hold until it starts wiggling, and tap the X in the upper-left corner.

3. Turn Off Reduce Transparency and Motion

Since iOS 7, your iPhone, iPad and iPod have been added with the motion effect and transparency. These two options can help mitigate graphics resources needed and hopefully help speed things up when navigating through iOS and using things like Notification Center and Control Center. Luckily, you can disable both the motion effect and transparency.
