iPhone runs slow or Apps stop working

Apps just stop or my iPhone runs really slow?
Short of turning the phone all the way off and letting it start back up again, try this…

A. Force-quit an iOS app:
1. Double-click (quickly press twice) the iPhone’s Home button.
- you’ll see smaller preview windows of all your open programs.
2. Swipe through the carousel of windows until you get to the preview screen for the app that seems to be having a problem.
3. Put your finger on the app’s preview and swipe up toward the top of the iPhone screen until the preview window disappears.
- The app should now be fully closed.

If you are not sure which app is causing the slowness — or if the whole iPhone seems to be crawling — you can try clearing out the device’s random access memory.
Note: This does not delete apps, but frees up the place they were temporarily occupying in the iPhone’s RAM.

B. Clear the iPhone memory:
1. Unlock the iPhone so you see the home screen or another app.
2. Hold down the power button on the top or side of the device.
3. When you see the “Slide to Power Off” screen appear…
- Let go of the power button
- Press the Home button on the bottom edge of the screen for a few seconds.
- Stop pressing the button when the iPhone’s home screen reappears.
Its memory should now be refreshed and any open apps will reload themselves.
