Your ageing old iPhone is getting slower and slower? Just updated to iOS 10 and experienced a slow performance on iOS 10? Apps or games response slowly or sometimes even become unresponsive on your iPhone? How can you fix it? In this article, we offer you some basic tips to speed up slow iPhone 7/7Plus/SE/6s/6/5s/5/4 efficiently.

Way 1: Free Up RAM on Your iPhone

RAM (Random Access Memory) enables apps open and run quickly on your iPhone. Every app will take up a certain amount of RAM when they are running. If you runs a lot apps on your iPhone, the RAM will be used up and make your iPhone slow. Moreover, some apps will continue to take up the RAM even when you quit it. An efficient way to clear RAM on iPhone is hard resetting your iPhone.

To hard reset iPhone: Hold the home button and power button simultaneously (power and the Volume Down button on iPhone 7/7Plus) until the screen turns off.
