ICYMI, Here Is A Super Simple Hack That Will Legit Make Your iPhone Faster

Ya know how you always complain that your computer is running slow, and the surly IT guy’s first question is always ‘Have you tried turning it off and on again‘? 

There’s a fkn reason, hey. Turning your shit on and off isn’t for fun, it actually does something. Shocking, we know. 
Whether you can remember every tiny lil’ move you’ve made with your iPhone or not, you’ve actually engaged a tonne of 1s and 0s, and they’ve all been logged so there’s not enough room for more 1s and 0s. 
So, to make a device faster, get rid of that shit and make room for more binary by clearing your RAM (Random Access Memory). 
Tbh, Apple‘s iOS actually has a pretty dope application memory management system. It usually takes care of shit pretty well, but like any other software in the universe, sometimes it fucks up. Once upon a time, a Genius Bar employee might have told ya that the only way to fix it was by erasing everything, and starting new… and not restoring your backup. Which obvi sucks as a solution. 
But never fear; some dude has discovered how to reset your RAM on an iPhone without erasing everything. Which is cool. It means you can be more reckless and never backup and no harm will befall your precious, very important photos that you don’t bother saving elsewhere. </sarcasm>
Here are the steps:
1. Start by unlocking your iOS device. That means the display will be lit, and either the home screen or an app can be showing, but not the lock screen. 

2. Hold down the power button until the “slide to power off” option appears on the device’s display. 

3. Next, release the power button, and then hold down the home button for roughly five seconds.
Or, y’know:
p.s. Seriously though, backup yr shit.
