That old iPhone or iPad doesn’t have to be sluggish Via Acumor

Speed Up A Slow iPhone
Speed Up A Slow iPhone

Does it take your iPad ages to play your favorite videos?Does your iPhone’s Web browser creep through the Internet?

The chances are that your iPad or iPhone are old. When these products get outdated, they get sluggish.

The good news? You don’t have to spend the big bucks on a new iPhone or iPad.

Alternatively, you can take some simple actions to boost the speed of your slow devices. Lifehacker writer Whitson Gordon recently offered some tips.

No More Upgrades

We realize that you want to keep your iPad or iPhone up-to-date. But Gordon in his Lifehacker story says that the owners of older devices should avoid the lure of Apple updates. The reason? Those new versions of iOS or those latest upgrades can prove too powerful for older devices. And they can make those older devices run even slower.

No Third-Party Apps

The more you depend on Apple’s own apps — say, by using Safari instead of Firefox to browse the Web — the faster your phone or iPad will function. Apple’s own apps are made to run faster on your iPad and iPhone.

Clearing Space

Finally, if your iPhone or iPad is too slow, it’s time to take a critical look at the music, videos and apps you have saved on your device. Whitson suggests erasing any apps, programs or music files that you seldom access. A bit of pruning from you could inject new life into your sluggish device.
