iPhone has the reputation of performance compared to other brands. This fact often drives its cult following evident in any new release.

This is especially true in cases where the iPhone’s memory is filled with files both seen and hidden.

Other factors like battery life, especially in older versions come into play. So how do you optimize your iPhone to allow you to play your favorite games or videos? Freeing up space offers room for games to not only be installed but run in your phone.

Perhaps the most straight forward answer to optimizing your iPhone is freeing up space. iPhone like other phones has storage capacity. Other models though have expandable memory and can easily transfer files from internal memory to the external micro-SD. Freeing up space may range from direct deletion of apps one considers useless, files, podcasts or music. However, there are other hidden files in your iPhone that you may not be aware of. Deleting apps is a fairly easy process. You navigate to the app icon, the app will then wobble. On the top left corner, an X will appear, simply tap it and boom! Your app is gone.

Any phone user is familiar with unwanted apps and games that take space. Games and apps have the distinction of also using your iPhone’s CPU. The fact is even made worse by the fact that some applications run in the background without your knowledge. However, this varies from one game to the next. You don’t expect to use the same resources watching or reading Manga on your iPhone compared to what you would use while playing Godfire or Modern Combat. To optimize your phone’s performance, it is also important to delete the applications and media you consider unnecessary.
