How to Fix Bad iOS 12 Performance

How to Fix Bad iOS 12 Performance is a post by Adam Mills of AndroidNews.Us.

Apple's iOS 12.1 update contains a full list of bug fixes, but some users experience performance issues after installing the company's latest iOS 12 upgrade.

The users of iOS 12.0, iOS 12.0.1 and iOS 12.1 deal with a variety of issues, including freezes, freezes, lag, application freezes and random reboots. These are common problems and we see them appear after each iOS version.

Some of these problems may require a discussion with Apple customer support or a visit to the Apple Store, but others can be solved in minutes from the comfort of your chair or sofa.

Our guide to solving iOS 12 performance issues will guide you through some of the steps you should take if you experience one or more of these issues on your iPhone, iPad, or iPad Touch.

Restart your device

If you notice poor performance on your device, the first thing to do is a simple reboot. If you have not restarted or shut down your device for a while, it could work wonders. Turn it off, wait a minute, and then turn it back on.

Update your phone

Apple will periodically release the new iOS 12 software. The change logs vary (one-time updates are focused on bug fixes, milestone upgrades such as iOS 12.1 offer a combination of fixes and features), but they have all the potential to solve the performance issues you face.

Of course, new updates always bring their own collection of problems that you will want to read before switching to the latest version of iOS 12.

Reset your network settings

If you notice a lower than normal download speed on your device, try resetting your network settings. Here's how to do this:

  • Go to your Settings application.
  • Press General.
  • Tap Reset.
  • Tap Reset Network Settings.

This will make your device forget your Wi-Fi passwords, so make sure you have them at hand.

If that does not work, try resetting all your settings from the same menu. Tap Reset all settings. This will restore your device's factory settings, so you'll need your Wi-Fi passwords at your fingertips and a little time to get your settings back to where you prefer them.

Clean your storage

If you have your device for a while, chances are you'll have a lot of space on your internal memory. Getting rid of this clutter could help speed up your device.

iOS 12 lets you see exactly how much space is free on your device. Here's how to check:

  • Go to your settings.
  • Press General.
  • Tap Storage and use iCloud.
  • Select Manage Storage.

If you approach the threshold, you will want to go back to General and scroll to where it says iPhone Storage or iPad Storage.

Here you will get a detailed overview of what occupies the most space on your internal storage. Apple will make recommendations based on your use of your storage, but you can also browse each section manually and delete the files and data you no longer need.

Update your applications

If your apps start to have problems on iOS 12, you'll want to update them.

Application developers are slowly deploying iOS 12 support updates for their applications, and these updates should help stabilize performance.

Before you install an update, go to the App Store and read the comments of iOS users 12. If the reviews are generally good, install the latest version of the application.

Stop automatic downloads

The iOS 12 automatic update feature is extremely useful, but the constant stream of updates can keep your device running in the background. If your device is working hard, you may see a drop in performance.

If you agree with manually updating your apps on the App Store, try at least temporarily to disable automatic downloads on your device and see if you get any performance improvement. To do this:

  • Go to the settings.
  • Tap iTunes and App Store.

Once inside, you will want to disable updates, located in the Automatic Downloads section. You may also want to disable other options.

Disable widgets

Widgets can be extremely useful, but if you have activated a ton, they can be extremely stressful for your device's hardware. Try to disable all or part of them and see if it improves the performance of your device.

When on your device's home screen, slide your finger to the right. From there, scroll to the bottom of the list and press Edit.

On the next screen you should see a long list of services and applications. These are your widgets. To turn off a widget, tap the red circle with the white line, and tap Delete.

Clear cookies and browser data

Clearing cookies and data from your browser will free up memory, which could have a positive impact on your device's performance.

If you primarily use Apple's Safari browser, go to your settings, tap Safari, scroll to the location where you see Clear website history and data, and tap and hold.

By typing this, your browsing history, cookies and other data will be removed from Safari. The history will also be erased from any device connected to your iCloud account. If it suits you, press Clear History and Data again.

If you're using the Google Chrome browser, you must go to the app and tap the three horizontal circles in the lower right corner. They are in the upper right corner if you have not updated the new design.

Once there, press Settings, Privacy, and then Clear Browsing Data. You can now select what you want to delete. If you notice a large offset, you may want to start over.

If this is the case, select all of them (you will see a red check mark to the right of the names after you have done this), and then press Clear Browsing Data.

Stop updating the background

The application update feature in the background of iOS 12 runs in the background to keep your applications up to date with updated data. This is a nice feature, but shutting it down could potentially improve the performance of your device.

If you do not need your applications to retrieve data in the background, go to Settings, tap General, then Refresh application in background and turn off refresh backwards. plan. This will disable the functionality for all applications.

You can also view your list of applications one by one and make selections on a case by case basis. It's tedious, but it's the way to go if you want to keep this feature active for your main applications.

Reduce your animations

If you notice unstable animations and user interface transitions, try to mitigate them.

Apple's software gives you an impression of depth when you tilt your device and open and close your apps. This is a good idea, but minimizing this feature could improve the performance of your device.

To reduce the effects of movement on your device, you will want to:

  • Go to the settings.
  • Press General.
  • Tap Accessibility.
  • Toggle reduce movement on.

Before doing this, note that reducing motion effects will disable some features such as the bubble effect in your Messages application.

We also recommend reducing the effects of transparency and blur on your device. To reduce transparency:

  • See you in accessibility.
  • Touch Increase Contrast.
  • Press the toggle to activate the Reduce Transparency feature.

Start from zero

If nothing helps you, and you can not find a fix from Apple or another source, you might want to go back to an older version of iOS or start at the initial state and reset your phone or tablet.

Before restoring your device's default factory settings, make sure your important data is properly backed up via iTunes or Apple's iCloud service.

If everything is backed up and everything is ready, you are ready to start the process. Go to Settings, press Reset, and then Clear all content and settings. It may take a few minutes, so you will need to be patient.

If that does not work for you, you will really want to take your phone to a Genius bar for repair.
