How to free memory and speed up your iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS

How to free memory and speed up your iPhone 4 and iPhone 3GS

With the arrival of the new flagship, the iPhone 5S, other models did not go down in history - users continue to actively use the iPhone 4  and the iPhone 3GS. A great option for a budget smartphone, but sometimes you just want it to run a little faster. And this can be achieved through simple manipulations.

In part, the iPhone's slow performance is due to the fact that we inadvertently compare our older model to newer, more productive versions of friends; the result is clearly not in favor of the "old men." Also, the impressions of how fast the smartphone worked immediately after the purchase are still fresh. And this is the essence of the problem, during operation the device was completely clogged with information garbage.

Even though Apple smartphones are less sensitive to this than similar devices, it will be simply impossible to play Temple Run 2 on iPhone 3G over time due to terrible brakes. But all is not lost yet, and you can boost performance - here are some tips.

To a greater extent, this instruction is relevant to the iPhone 4 and  iPhone 3GS  no jailbreak.

Close all unnecessary apps

The presence of multitasking support in iOS 6 does not mean that this feature should be abused. RAM is not rubbery and apps running in the background take up resources, with little to no return. Double-click the Start button, open the list of running programs, press and hold any icon for a couple of seconds, and by clicking the crosses (in iOS 6 and earlier) or swiping up, close an app after other.

Delete cookies, data and history in Safari

Information of this type is not always vital, but it does take up space; since we have done the general cleaning, we will get rid of it. in the app Configuration standard, look for the browser element Safari , which offers two commands: » Delete history " Y " Delete cookies and data «. Attention! Once this is done, don't be surprised that the browser no longer offers auto-typing URLs; quick access will remain only for those bookmarked. Your personal data will also be “forgotten”.

Restart your iPhone

Sometimes the most common reset helps, the oldest method to fix all glitches of electronic devices. Press the button Power On and hold until the slider appears Delete , with the help of which the device is turned off. This will take about 10 seconds, then you need to wait a few more to be sure and turn on the device using the same button Power On. See the Apple logo - everything is in order.

Delete unwanted text and multimedia messages

Get to work: After all, you don't need all the SMS messages with empty chatter and “hello, bye”, do you? And if you can free up a couple more megabytes of memory, removing the extra text arrays is worth doing. open the app Messages and periodically swipe right and press Eliminate. An alternative method is to select the Edit item and click on the red minuses, deleting anything unnecessary.

Delete annoying content: music, videos, photos

It's time to deal with the next category of information garbage. open Configuration, eyelash General, element Statistics and examine the space used and what types of applications take up the most space. Most likely it will be Music y Photos, that is, perhaps the memory is occupied by old music tracks, unnecessary photographs and spontaneously made videos that no one remembers anymore. Virtual broom in hand and go ahead, clean.

Open the section of Music, find songs and even entire albums you don't mind letting go of and delete them from your iPhone. But music, if desired, can be downloaded again, but with personal photos it is better to be more careful - make a backup on your PC in advance. To copy photos from Camera Roll, you need to connect your smartphone to your PC, and after the device is identified as a camera, copy it.

By deleting unclaimed music and photos, you'll get up to several GB of free space; they will be useful.

Delete unused applications

In the same menu Statistics, other sections that occupy an unacceptably large amount of precious memory are also visible. Scroll down and click Show all applications, after which it becomes clear which program takes up how much space. Then it's a matter of technology, swipe right and Delete, the main thing is not to get carried away and check if the unused applications are really deleted. The same action can be performed on the desktop space by holding your finger on any icon to enter edit mode. Once you're done and you've seen how much memory you've freed up, you can test how fast our old iPhone has gotten, for example by running Temple Run 2.

iPhone Factory Reset

This is, without a doubt, the most serious thing that can be done to a smartphone in an attempt to restore its previous performance. A factory reset actually returns the iPhone to what it was when it was packaged to ship to the store. Minus the fact that some of the physical components managed to wear down a bit.

Note that absolutely no data will be left in memory, there is no way to return it. Creating a backup in iTunes or iCloud will be a more than reasonable measure, do not neglect this last option. In the case of iCloud service, you need to find the section Storage and copies in the menu and then click the button Create a copy at the bottom of the screen.


When the data is saved, continue to the last step. Follow the path Configuration – \u003e General - \u003e Reset - \u003e Clear content and settings . After the reboot, you'll see the standard splash screen, just like when we first picked up this smartphone.
