To disable the widgets on the home screen, swipe to the right and scroll to the bottom. Here click “Edit”. A long list of services and applications in which the available widgets. If the widget is inactive, you will see a green circle and a “+” inside it, if active – the red circle and “-” on the inside. Just remove all the unnecessary widgets.
“Kill” background processes
Simultaneous operation of many resources in the background slows down your iPhone. If the option is active the option “Update content”, the app will update data in the background. It is very convenient, but can also be the cause of the lag.
To disable this feature, go to Settings -> General -> Update content. Here you can disable or enable it only for certain applications.
Please note that you can also be set to automatically download updates from the App Store. To disable it, open Settings -> iTunes Store and App Store and disable updates for apps, books and music.
Close down running applications
Apple insists that you don’t need to close applications by optimising memory and CPU. However, in a situation when the device lag, it can improve performance.
Close applications one by one in the panel multitasking is a tedious task. In iOS there is a way to simultaneously close all the running apps:
Now the applications running in the background process will be suspended, although they will appear in the multitasking drawer.
Reset to factory settings
If none of the above helps, the only solution may be a full reset, especially if you have an iPhone 5 or below. After a reset the device will look like new.
