Over time, even the fastest iPhone X can transform into a hulking monster. How to fix it?
From the problem of lowering the performance of the smartphone no one is immune. Smartphone black in cheap Chinese models, it happens to top models with a price tag of above $1000.
Often this sin model on Android, but in iOS the problem is found almost everywhere in the lineup. So over time, even the flagship Apple could transform into a hulking monster.
The reasons can be several, and we consider the most common and try to solve them.
An overabundance of applications
Memory smartphone with plenty of apps – it’s not so bad. Their number, as shown, if affect performance, but not critical.
Another thing, when most of them work in the background, taking place in the active processes and the amount of memory, which is not always enough even for “in stock”. Among them are the most common applications: instant messengers, social networks, audio and determinants rooms.
But it happens that in the background applications that are not expecting such a dastardly trick. We mean games and other entertaining apps that are running in the background and cause Push notifications to you are more likely to be treated and launched.
It is recommended to prevent overflow of games your smartphone or tablet. Or at least disable notifications for applications that do not require active work in the background.
On Android it can be disabled in “Settings” -> “General” -> “Applications”. Open the ones that interfere with and block from seeing your notifications.
In the iOS app notifications can be disabled in “Settings” -> “Notifications”. Also manually disable notifications in each unnecessary application.
After this simple procedure you will notice how the smartphone will not only be faster, but also longer hold a charge.
Often smartphone slows down and loses performance when free memory is coming to a critical point and the drive is just not there.
This is due to the fact that the operating system and the applications become more difficult to distribute data in memory, and the search space gets more time.
Often the release of at least 1-1,5 GB of free space, the tablet is noticeably faster to work with. Make it a rule not to hammer a drive smartphone, and leave at least gigabytes of free space to the needs of the operating system.
Actively use cloud storage like iCloud or Google Drive. Subject to availability to connect a MicroSD card, transfer large files on it.
By the way, to free space, you can simple clear the cache memory. On Android you can make a utility like CCleaner, and on iOS Battery Doctor.
The battery of any smartphone is subject to wear. Decreases with time not only battery capacity but also the voltage, because then it starts to overheat, and this can lead to a drop in processor clock speed, and the braking interface of the operating system and applications.
That’s why Apple forced iPhone have slowed, which caused a scandal among the owners of old models.
To determine the “health” of the battery you could use application AccuBattery. On iPhone this can be done through system settings under “Battery”. If the battery capacity is greatly decreased from that declared by more than 25-30%, it is desirable to replace it.
The manufacturers claim a 3-year cycle of the battery. But it is advisable to replace it after 2 years of using the device.
Mobile operating system – complex software code responsible for the correct operation of all hardware and software components of the device.
It happens that manufacturer makes stable enough version. Often this happens with older iPhone models, who received a fresh piercing is usual in such cases helped roll back to a previous version, and the device was adjusted.
Also, do not abuse the “custom” builds for Android enthusiasts. They often work very unstable and often cause the failure of many hardware parts, like cameras, cell module, Wi-Fi. So use the stable version from the developers of your smartphone.
It would seem to be obvious, but many continue to use a smartphone that fell, and at first glance the damage is not received. But after falling inside could cause serious damage to internal components such as cooling, motherboard, memory chip, etc.
A sure sign of such damage — a sharp deterioration in the stability of the smartphone: he suddenly started to slow down, to be very slow and the screen sometimes stops responding to clicks, often emerge error, spontaneous reboot.
Unfortunately, the above-described methods, the device is not to cure even a full reset to factory settings – in this case, requires a qualified repair service center.
