Part 3. 3 Tips to Make iOS Faster

Apart from using iMyFone Umate, we have some other amazing tips to speed up your iOS 7.

1 Clearing RAM

As mentioned above, a lot of apps stay loaded in the RAM of your iPhone even when you exit from the app. This means that even if you are not using that app, it is still affecting the speed of your iPhone.

Resetting RAM is an ideal way to free the RAM from such apps. Restarting your iPhone can do this for you.

There is a shorter solution as well. Simply press and hold the power button of your iPhone until you see the bar that says "Slide to power off". Now, rather than switching off your phone, release the power switch and press and hold home button until the screen of your iPhone is back on. This will refresh the RAM of your iPhone and will improve the speed of your slow iOS.

For doing this, go to Settings, then general and then Accessibility. Now, toggle "Reduce Motion" button to ON. This will reduce the animations or will stop them completely.
