Which way to go when your iPhone slows down
However, iPhones can slow down too, especially if you are using an older model. Amid reports of slow iPhones, poor performance issues and interruptions in loading features and functions, Apple has expressed its intentions of giving their loyal customers a fabulous deal: an update that speeds up your iPhone like never before.
Sounds too good to believe? Well, it is true. Apple launched a new update for iPhones named iOS 12 last month to speed up iPhones that have become slow over the years or with prolonged use. The latest update has a host of amazing functions that you would absolutely adore. So we have brought you a sneak peek into the whys and hows of the matter.
Here’s what the new iOS 12 is all about
Spokespeople from Apple are going gaga over the new Apple update. They say that iOS 12 is designed to solve performance and speed issues for iPhone models dating back to iPhone 5S, iPhone SE and iPhone 6. Some people are even hailing the new update as the best from Apple so far, drawing positive responses from all and sundry.
Here are the tweaks and perks that Apple introduced in the latest iOS 12 update for all iPhones.
