Kill The Background Processes:
The best way to increase the speed on any device is to make sure that there is no unnecessary background apps are running, sometimes an app refreshes itself on the back and that process lags your on-screen app. It’s another great way to preserve the battery life. On the other hand disabling automatic updates can also helps you in saving the battery life and increasing the speed. To disable such feature, Go to Setting > App Store, scroll down to the Automatic Updates section and turn off the Apps and Updates, and if you want more, Disable the automatic downloads for Music and Books too.
Disable Auto Background Refresh:
Apps refresh their content whether there is need of them or not, for example Facebook will refresh the news feed after the time interval set, without your knowing. Tha process will take the CPU along with the Battery of your iOS device. So in order to kill that, Go to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and flip the toggle sitch off or turn the apps off manually.
Turn off Transparency, Blur and Parallax :
All the new animations in iOS are a good cause to decrease the speed of your iOS device. Turning off all these animations can increase the speed of your device, To do that go to Settings > General > Accessibility and Tap on Reduce Motion. On the next screen, flip the slider on, it will reduce the motion including the parallax effect of screen.
