How to Speed ​​Up iPhone SE Performance

iPhone SE is a very popular palm friendly device which was released by Apple in the previous year. Apple has released this small but powerful device for everyone who doesn't like to use a very large plus size phone and wants a small but feature-packed iPhone.

Despite being one of the best Apple devices, it still suffers from some issues including performance drops.

If you find your iPhone working slowly suddenly it might be due to low internal memory, faulty apps, hardware malfunction or because of too many apps running in the background.

Faulty or unsuccessful software update is also one of the reasons behind it. Finding your phone slow after an update is an indication that the update didn't work. However, you don't need to worry because there are many ways to restore your phone's performance as long as there is no hardware damage.


Turn off background app refresh

The background app refresh feature allows apps to refresh their content when you're connected to Wi-Fi or cellular data. Refreshing these apps in the background contributes to slowing down your iPhone performance. Disabling it can increase app loading times but will make your phone faster. You can turn off this feature by following the steps listed:

1. Go to settings

2. Now tap on General then Background App Refresh

3. Here you will find a list of apps from which you can disable the ones you like or you can disable all background refresh.


Clearing the browsing history

By clearing browsing data, you can speed up the browsing experience of your interests. You can try this method if you are facing lags while using the browser. If you don't know how to do this, you can follow the steps listed below.

1. First of all go to settings

2. Go on a safari

3. You will see an option to clear history and cookies. Tap on it.

4. You have deleted your history and other browsing data.


Turn off automatic downloads

Your phone may also slow down suddenly as a result of automatic downloads that might be running in the background. Thus you can turn off this feature to improve the performance of your iPhone SE. To do it

1. Go to settings

2. Now go to iTunes and then to the App Store.

3. You will find the Auto Download option to turn it off.


Delete old multimedia content and messages

Another way to speed up or increase the speed of your slow iPhone SE is to delete old photos, videos, messages and other files. Deleting unwanted files releases a lot of internal memory space and ultimately increases the working speed of your device.

Video messages and voice notes take up more space, so make sure you delete them too. Deleting a message is very simple, you just need to open the message and scroll down to find the thread you don't want anymore. Now swipe right then tap on Delete.


Reduce movement

Your phone is pre-loaded with lots of cool features. Screen animation is one of them. This is the animation you see when switching between different apps. They may look good but can also be one of the reasons behind the slow performance of your device. You can enable the reduce motion feature to make your iPhone faster than ever. To do it

1. Go to Settings

2. Go to General and go to Accessibility

3. Now tap on the toggle next to reduce gesture options.


Software update

Keeping your phone up to date directly affects its performance. Software updates are released to remove bugs and other issues found in previous versions of the software. Thus, updating your device software ensures its best performance. It is therefore highly recommended to keep your iPhone SE up to date.


Full Reset

This is the last way to restore the performance of your device. However, it will delete all apps, photos, and other important files and data including touch ID, Siri, and pretty much everything. So it is recommended to backup all your files before proceeding.

1. Once you are ready go to settings.

2. Now tap on General here, you will find the reset option. 

3. Click on it and now tap on Erase all content and settings. You may be asked to enter your device password based on the previous settings. Enter it and tap Confirm.

This will reset your iPhone SE.
