For me there is nothing good about new iOS releases unless I’m the guy who always have the latest and greatest devices from Apple.
Unfortunately we all don’t live in that world of yearly device upgrade and are usually 1-2 generation models behind.
Since upgrading to the new iOS 8 my iPhone 5, iPad 3rd gen and iPad Air has had noticeable performance degradation.
There are two ways however that you can increase the speed of your multitasking and reduce the lag on your older iOS devices. One is to turn on the Reduce Motion and the other is by turning off Transparency. Both these settings can be found under the Settings > General > Accessibility section.
These changes sacrifices some of the eye candy and effects of iOS 8 but that’s the least of my worry, I care so much more about functionality than the eye candy.
Let me know in the comments section below if you have any other tips to speed up iOS 8 and I’ll add it to this post.
