How to Speed Up an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch

Introduction

If you're still using an iPhone that's two or more generations old, chances are it isn't as fast as it used to be.

All computing devices are prone to slowing down over time, as their storage space fills up and extra software is added. However, it's possible that it just feels slower than it used to because you've got used to what initially seemed like amazingly snappy performance, or you may be comparing your phone to your friends' newer, faster phones.

In any case, some of these steps may help speed things up again. Results will vary depending on how old your iPhone is, its hardware capabilities, etc.

Assorted iPhone models.

Make sure to test your iPhone after performing each one of these steps. Any one of these steps may individually resolve your performance issue altogether. If you feel like a particular step has resolved your issue, feel free to skip to the end of this guide.
