Earlier models are reporting dull performance since updating.  How can you fix it? In this article, we’ll share some basic tips and tricks to help you easily solve the lag problem and speed up your device in iOS 9/9.1/9.2/9.3.


Close/Optimize Apps and Games

Take at look the apps/games that you have installed. Close games which are less important, it will save lot of resources and increase iOS speed considerably. Whereas the apps, optimize them by turning off their location services completely and only enable location sharing when you are going to use it.

Delete Unnecessary Apps and Games

You should keep in mind that these apps and games take up storage and CPU resource which eventually will make your device slow. Hence, deleting unwanted apps and games is always a good move to fix the lag issues on iPhone/iPad.
