Complain about “my iPhone is running slow”, especially after updating to the newest iOS 14, but have no clue about how to get down to it? Here are six tips to speed up your iPhone.

1. Delete Unnecessary Apps and App Caches

Sometimes you might download apps which seem to be interesting at the first sight, and then you just left them in your iPhone uselessly. These apps may occupy much space of your iPhone and your iPhone iOS 14 runs slow. Delete these “interesting” apps.

For the apps you used every day, check the app size and its “Documents and Data” usage, if it is too large, then you can delete it and reinstall the app, which helps to clean the useless user data.

2. Check the Downloads of Newsstand Apps

Although described as an app, Newsstand is more of a folder containing all the digital magazines you have subscribed. Similar to iBook, it can save recent subscribed issues in your iPhone; however some magazines and newspapers can save all content for a long time, which may amount to a few GB of old papers and magazines. This can occupy a lot of storage space of your iPhone iOS 14. You can check the downloaded issue of Newsstand and delete some out-of-date content.


3. Save Music and Game Backup on iCloud and iTunes

As for iPhone running slow because of running out of space, audio, video and game can be the top three reasons. Why not uploading the less frequently played audio and video to iCloud and iTunes, deleting them from your iPhone to free up more space and speed your iPhone up?

The other benefit of signing up to iTunes is that these audios and videos are available when you want them again. They can be easily organized as well.


4. Update iPhone to iOS 14 and Apps
