How to fix poor iOS 11.2.5 beta performance on your iPhone

Apple has recently released the iOS 11.2.5 beta for testing purposes. If you are one of the members of Apple’s beta testing program, you can download the update over the air. iOS 11.2.5 is not a huge update, as it focuses on bug fixes and performance improvements. However, like any previous iOS beta version, iOS 11.2.5 has its own issues.

We have heard some of the issues beta testers are facing with iOS 11.2.5, ranging from severe battery drain to random reboots. If you are among those users who have been affected by these problems, you can go back to the previous iOS version and wait until the final build releases. However, before downgrading to an official version of iOS 11, try following our methods in the section below.

In this guide, we have a couple of solutions that help you fix poor iOS 11.2.5 beta performance. Before we begin, note that if you have never been a member of Apple’s beta program, we recommend you stay with your official iOS 11 version.

How to fix poor iOS 11.2.5 beta performance

  1. Restart your device

The first thing you need to do is restart your iPhone or iPad. If you now own an iPhone X, the method used to restart your device is different than past iPhone models. All you need to do is press and hold the Side button and either Volume button until you see the Power Off slider. Once you are done, wait for a few seconds and press and hold the Side button again to turn your device back on.

  1. Free up some space

If your device is now running out of space, it’s time to clean up the mess. Keep in mind that low storage may slow down your device and cause some apps to crash out. In iOS 11, you can offload unused apps to free up some space on your device.

To free up space on your iPhone, head to Settings > General > iPhone Storage and you should see how much space you have left on your device. Under the Recommendations section, enable Offload Unused Apps.

  1. Update your apps

If the problem still persists, make sure you now have the latest versions of your apps. A new update usually includes error fixes and performance enhancements. To update an app, open the App Store and select the Updates tab. If nothing works, remove the problematic apps and re-install them from the App Store to see if the problem is fixed.

  1. Reduce animations

iOS is now more visually appealing, mainly thanks to stunning animations and widgets. However, they may slow down your device and cause some performance issues. If you are experiencing lag, we recommend you reduce animations. To do this, open Settings and select General. After that, tap on Accessibility and turn off the switch for Reduce Motion.

  1. Turn off Background App Refresh

Background refresh has been around for years, allowing any app to check for updates even when they are not actively running on your screen. To turn off Background App Refresh, head to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and turn off the switch.
