The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the flowers are growing. That means one thing: It’s time for spring cleaning. Forget about your regular spring cleaning duties this year, though, and turn to your iPhone. This little device requires a spring cleaning strategy of its own.
Start from the Outside
You use a case to protect your iPhone, but if you don’t keep it clean, it can’t do its job. In fact, trapped dust and debris can actually scratch the phone. Remove the case and clean it with a disinfecting wipe. Let it dry completely before putting it back on the phone.
Free Up Hard Drive Space
There is a good chance your phone is pushed to the max in regard to storage. Use this spring cleaning adventure to clear up some space on your hard drive. That way, your phone is less likely to crash, and you’re less likely to need an iPhone repair service like Phonefixation.
- Head over to “Settings” and select “General.”
- Then go to “Usage.” A list of all of the apps that you use will come up.
- Next to each app, you will see how much room they take up. Use this as a starting point for freeing up space. If an app takes up a lot of storage space, find out why and then delete unnecessary components. For instance, some apps copy pictures so you end up with two sets of photos on your phone. Deleting the extra pictures is a great way to free up space.
As you move through the list, you can also look for apps that you don’t use anymore. Delete those apps to free up space.
Extend Your Battery Life
If you’re like most iPhone users, you are a little disappointed when it comes to the phone’s battery life. Fortunately, you can fix this problem in the “Settings” menu. Start by disabling push notifications for email and apps. You can also disable the Location Services feature. This will save you a great deal of battery life.
