Five simple ways to give your old smartphone a speed boost
1. Clear cached data
When a cache is full, the device will have to scan its entire memory for the required data, which can be a big drain on loading times. Simply clearing space in a phone’s cache will have a noticeable impact on the time it takes to open web pages, run apps and complete actions.
To clear the cache on your
 iPhone
 go to Settings > Safari > ’Clear History and Website Data’ > ’Clear History & Data’.
Android
On an Android, clear your cache by going to
Settings > Storage > Other Apps. Find the app you want to clear, click on it and select Clear Cache.
2. Manage your apps
If your apps aren’t managed effectively, they can drain your phone’s performance.
Deleting any unused apps will help to free up memory, which in turn improves your handset’s processing power.
Similarly, for apps that update regularly like #Twitter and #Facebook, it may be beneficial to periodically delete and reinstall them.This is because when apps update, the previous version is not deleted, but overwritten by the new update, and over time this can increase the amount of memory taken up by the app.
3. Update to the latest operating system
If your phone is using an old operating system, it can slow your device down. Carrying out regular recommended updates will ensure that your device will always be running the most up to date browser, noticeably improving your browsing experience.
4. Performance enhancing apps
There are several apps you can download to help improve your phone’s performance.
mobiles.co.uk said: “Limiting the number of apps that are activated upon starting up will shorten the amount of time it takes your device to ‘wake up’ once you’ve switched it on. You can also find apps that help to clear cache space, as mentioned above.”
5. Replace the battery
Finally, replacing your battery can help to give your old smartphone a boost.
mobiles.co.uk added: “Modern phone batteries do much more than just powering the handset, as they are integral to how a phone operates.
