Let’s face it, smart phones of today are habit forming. You have a powerful computer, message center, social media hub, flashlight, appointment book, and camera with video capability all in the power of your palm. And that is just for starters.
Having an iPhone you learn a few tricks from playing with the infernal machine. Sometimes it’s a blessing. Other times, I am not so fortunate. I have noticed that memory is an important feature of the phone you can control using a few very intuitive measures. One of them is controlling the number of programs or apps that are currently running on your phone either currently or in the background.
Something they don’t tell you is that your smart phone memory is used to help in processing as well as storage. So it stands to reason the number of programs you have running in the background can adversely affect your phone’s performance as well.
To shut down these unneeded apps just do the following:
Unlock your phone.
Press your ‘Home’ button twice. The ‘Home’ button on an iPhone is located on the faceplate just below the screen and looks like this. Pressing the ‘Home’ button twice in rapid succession will pull up a list of all the contacts and programs currently operating in the background.
To shut down the programs you don’t want running simply push the program screen up until it disappears. Keep doing that until all the apps have been shut down.
That should free up enough memory on your phone to take a few more photos of the kids.
