Free up storage space

If you don't have enough free storage space, you may run into the problem with apps. That means it's time to do a little cleaning. We are all used to keeping tons of videos, photos or songs on our devices, even if we have everything saved on our computers. Put a little effort to free up the storage space on your iPhone. Delete songs, videos and photos you no longer need. Once the storage issue is resolved, check if the application is working properly.

Software update

You can solve a wide range of problems by updating the software. When the applications are not working properly, we believe that the solution to the problem must lie in the application itself. And it's true most of the time. But, we must not forget that the bug in the software can also cause this problem. Each new version of iOS comes with various improvements in terms of security and performance. It often introduces new features, but above all, it provides bug fixes.

Here's how to update the software:

  • Connect to a Wi-Fi network
  • Access iPhone settings

  • Press and hold the icon of the application you want to delete
  • Applications on the home screen will wiggle
  • You will see an X in the corner of each application that can be deleted (you cannot delete the preinstalled applications).
  • Tap X, then tap Delete.
