An easy way to fix a sluggish iPhone or iPad
There's an easy way to fix a sluggish iPhone or iPad without having to perform a complete reboot.
As you can see I'm using a lot of memory right now, but when I do this trick it should be able to free up almost half of it.
Make sure your device is unlocked then hold down the Power button until the slide to power off text appears.
Now instead of sliding the switch or tapping the Cancel button, press and hold the Home button for a few seconds until you return to the home screen.
And that's it.
Now let me check my memory usage.
And there you have it.
39% of my memory is unused, compared to 3% beforehand.
So theoretically my phone should be running a bit smoother.
