We expect our iPhones to keep up with our busy lifestyles and sense of urgency. But from extended use and old age, our iPhones can slow down and leave us frustrated from less-than-stellar performance.
There are many reasons why your phone isn’t running as fast as it used to. Some are quick to blame a slowing device on a phenomenon known as “bit rot”. Bit rot happens when processors, modems, and storage modules physically age and begin to deteriorate which worsens their performance. However if you’ve purchased your device within the past few years, the chance of bit rot slowing it down is slim to none because the device is still relatively new. Luckily, there are less complicated and easier to manage reasons for your device slowdowns.
If you’re suffering from a slow iPhone, the good news is that there are some tips and tricks you can try to bring your mobile device back up to speed. Most of these options are found in the Settings app, while another option actually requires you to take your iPhone into Apple for service. That sounds daunting, but it might be well worth your time! Follow our tips on the next slides to help you get the most out of your aging iPhone.
