“Apps misbehaving? Phone acting sluggish?” David Nield reports for Gizmodo. “If you’re experiencing any kind of problem with your iPhone, then emptying out the device’s RAM can often do wonders.”
“Restarting your iPhone is one way of doing this, but there is a quicker option,” Nield reports.
“Press and hold the Power button as normal until the familiar ‘slide to power off’ option appears,” Nield reports. “Don’t accept the invitation and don’t cancel either: Instead, press and hold the Home button. After a few seconds you should find yourself back on the home screen with a fresh slate as far as RAM goes.”
MacDailyNews Note: Make sure to use this tip after you’ve unlocked your device. If you try it from the lock screen, you’ll just invoke Siri.
