Ever since the new iPhone and iOS launched, Apple has been facing one issue after another. Of course, we have seen issues with poor reception and proximity sensor. But there have also been several other issues including slow 3G upload, unreliable Wi-Fi network,etc. If this was not enough, several iPhone 3G users have been complaining since the launch of the new iOS 4 about facing an extremely slow system performance post the OS installation.
Recently, Apple acknowledged the issue and has promised to look into the solution. But before the company comes up with a solution few weeks later, here is a simple fix that will see your iPhone 3G start performing blazingly fast again. Here is what you need to do
1. On the iPhone home screen, tap Settings.
2. Navigate to Settings -> General -> Home Button -> Spotlight Search
3. Deselect all the options under Spotlight search
You are done. It is being noticed that the system sluggishness may be due to the presence of spotlight search and disabling it can temporarily solve the issue. Do you see similar improvements? Write back in the comments.
