You probably use your iPhone a lot. From watching videos to attending webinars and playing games – the list is endless. This means more data consumption, which in turn means more stress on your iPhone. This can lead to issues such as slow performance and battery draining. 

If you notice that your iPhone is slowing down, don’t worry – there are ways to fix this. We have a list of common signs that your iPhone is slow and what to do about it below. Take a look and thank us later.

Long Booting Time

When you turn on your iPhone, you expect it to be ready for use within seconds. However, if it takes longer than that, there’s probably an issue with your phone. This can be due to many things: Maybe you downloaded too many apps, and now they need to be closed or deleted. Or maybe the battery needs charging? If this happens often, it might be time to check it out.

You can also implement some DIY tips to resolve this issue:

  • Reset your iPhone. This can be done by pressing and holding the power button until it turns off. Then press and hold the home button to turn it back on again.
  • Restart your phone in safe mode by pressing and holding down the power button until you see a slider appear, then slide it across to turn off your iPhone. Turn it on again and see if the phone works better. 

Poor Performance

If your iPhone takes too long to open apps and pages, it’s time to take action. This could be as simple as deleting unnecessary apps or media or rebooting the phone. You can also try resetting your phone settings. To do this, go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset all settings (this will not delete any of your data). Take the phone to the Apple service center if the issue persists.

Low Battery Life

If your phone’s battery drains faster than ever, it’s probably because of the number of tasks and processes running in the background. If this happens more often than usual, it might be a good idea to check what’s causing it and take steps to reduce their power consumption.

You can also try calibrating your battery, which is a process that adjusts how your phone reads your battery’s power level. To do this, charge your phone up to 100% and let it drain until it shuts off automatically. Then plug it in and wait for it to charge completely again.


If you notice that your iPhone is overheating more frequently than before, there could be an issue with its software or hardware. If this happens often, slow down your device by closing any unnecessary apps or turning on low power mode if available. You should also check for any pending updates, as these might fix any issues related to overheating.

Slow Wi-Fi Connection

It could be due to several issues if you’re having difficulty connecting to Wi-Fi. It might be an issue with your router or your phone’s settings. Try resetting the network settings and turning off and on your router, if possible. If this doesn’t help, contact customer service for assistance.

Random Reboot

It can get annoying when your iPhone randomly restarts while you are in the middle of something important. If this happens often, check if any pending software update needs to be applied as soon as possible – this might resolve this issue. Furthermore, reduce background processes and apps running on your device.

Final Word

These are some common signs that your iPhone is getting slow. If these issues persist after trying out the solutions we’ve suggested, it’s best to seek help from the Apple store or a professional technician. Good luck!
