No—it's not your battery dying out. If you've been experiencing a much slower iPhone than usual, you might have to clear cache.
Over time, every web page and app you navigate will clog up your iPhone with useless files and, as a result, significantly slow down an otherwise perfectly healthy phone. As your iPhone becomes progressively overloaded, you might want to consider clearing out your iPhone's cache, so it can go back to performing at the speed it once did.
How to clear your iPhone's cache?
Thankfully, the task of tidying up your phone's memory log to clear out some much-needed space is easier than you'd expect. The following are the steps to take to clear out your iPhone's cache:
- Go in the Settings app and scroll down to Safari.
- In the Safari settings, scroll down and tap on 'Clear History and Website Data.'
And that's it—that's all you need to do to clean up your iPhone's cache. You can go back to browsing the web at a less frustrating speed now.
What are some other ways to speed up your iPhone?
The first thing you might want to consider if you want your iPhone to remain in good condition is to delete apps you are not using. After all, the more memory you use, the slower your phone will become.
The same can be said about large files (videos, pictures, voice memos etc) that you don't necessarily need to be carrying around on your phone 24/7.
Finally, regularly updating your apps will ensure they run smoothly and hassle-free.
