You know those moments when your smartphone is running so slowly that you’d rather just turn it off? Well, that’s exactly the answer.
A great tip dished out by cell phone carrier customer service agents and Apple Genius Bar employees alike is to power your phone down and back up regularly – maybe even once a day – to keep it running well.
Why? Think of it in the same you do a computer. A reboot clears out your PC’s cache, refreshes its RAM, and closes all the nagging apps left running in the background. A reboot of your Android phone or iPhone does all the same things.
After all, that phone in your pockets is essentially a tiny computer.
