How to clear RAM on your iPhone or iPad without restarts

Even with Apple’s famed hardware-software optimizations, you might still find yourself in situations where your device would lag a bit. You have three options here;

1. Close the apps running in the background to free RAM.

2. Restart your device.

3. Clear your iDevice’s RAM without restarts or closing apps.

The 3rd option is somewhat not familiar to most users so we will talk about it in this post. Clearing your device’s RAM can dramatically improve your device responsiveness. It’s quite easy to do too.

Here are the steps to clear your RAM without doing a restart or closing apps.

1. On your iDevice, locate and press the power button until you see the “slide to power off”.

2. Instead of sliding the slider, hold the home button, until you are brought back to the home screen.

Behind the scenes, your device has freed more RAM and you should notice it’s more responsive again.
