Tips to Speed up iOS 9 Performance on iPhone & iPad



Apple iOS 9 has been officially made available to the public on September 16th, and in a short span it is now running on more than 50% of Apple devices. The latest iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPad Pro, and iPad Mini 4 comes out-of-the-box with iOS9, and the rest of the devices will receive it through an OTA update. Apart from iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus; the users of iPhone 5, iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, and iPhone 4S might feel more uncomfortable using iOS 9 on their devices.

Few comparisons also show that the iOS9 was slightly on the slower side when compared to iOS 8.4.1.

These performance lags can be solved with few changes in the settings. Here is the list of default settings that need to be changed on your devices running iOS 9.

Disable Motion

Open the ‘Settings’ and then tap on ‘General’, here you choose ‘Accessibility’ and tap on ‘Increase Contrast.’ There you find the ‘Reduce transparency’ option, toggle that to ON. Then again go to ‘Accessibility’ and there you will find ‘Reduce Motion’ option, toggle that ON.
