This guide shows you how to do a clean install of iOS 13 on your iPhone and explains why it’s a good idea for some users.
If you’ve had your iPhone for a few years and plan to continue for another year or two, a clean install can help you speed it up even faster than the speed and performance improvements built into iOS 13.
Over the years your iPhone may start to get heavy, but a clean install can give you a fresh start and breathe new life into an old phone. If you’re planning to buy the iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro soon, it’s not worth your time, but if you’ve been keeping your old iPhone for another year or two, this might be exactly what you’re looking for.
This will take longer than upgrading to iOS 13, but it can help you avoid some of the issues that come with an update.
