You know what it’s like to have loads of apps opened, Safari browser tabs, taking Instagram videos, or going about our daily tasks as normal. But then your iPhone feels a bit sluggish. You don’t really want to kill everything running in the background either.
A simple clearing of the RAM will fix it, and make your phone noticeably faster.

Just follow these steps…
STEP 1: Press and hold the power button as if you’re turning your phone off.
STEP 2: When you see “slide to power off”, let go of the power button.
STEP 3: Press and hold the home button for about five seconds until you see your homescreen.
That’s it, your phone will be noticeably quick once you go back to what you were doing. Apps will just reload, but none of what you had open will be killed off.
