iOS 12 beta 1 has been available for downloading & testing and many iOS users updated their device to this latest iOS version. Although the iOS 12 update is aimed at improving entire performance, especially on older iPhone/iPad models, iOS 12 beta testers have faced several problems in the days since the update’s release. iOS 12 beta still includes serious performance issues such as freezes, UI lag, or random reboots.

If you still want to test iOS 12 beta, you will need to wait until Apple releases the next beta update with bug fixes and improvements. Here are a few proven remedies that can help you fix slow performance issue on your iOS 12 device.

Fortunately, iOS 12 allows you to easily clean up what you no longer want.

If Background Refresh is turned on, many apps will automatically get updated with new information while running in the background. It might be a resource hog and turning it off could improve the performance of the processor.
