Many a time, your iPhone goes out of your control and start behaving abnormally. Sometimes, iPhone restart becomes hard task.  The biggest disadvantage of iPhones is it does not allow expandable memory. You have to end up with what you purchased initially. Though Apple offers different variants of phones as per inbuilt memory size, most of the people end up with lower segments to save extra bucks. With constrained storage space, it becomes difficult to manage your device. This may lead to hanging and poor performance and sometimes it becomes non-responsive. Let us know how can we handle such situations without any hurdle.


In case your iPhone hangs a lot, you need to control background running process and remove apps to free memory is extremely necessary. For this, you may download app Power Clean from the app store. It will help you to boost the performance and speed up your device. It is also a good tool for junk removal.
