Poor battery life
This is often the biggest problem of most iPhone users, they complain the battery get low sooner than they expect it to, even when the usage is little. And we all know it is kinda difficult to resist the temptation of playing around with your phone, it is better if you disable a few options, or customize them based on your own liking and enhance your battery time significantly.

Make you way to the Settings, choose Privacy in the following screen, and go to Location Settings. In the list that follows, tap System Service, and disable Location-Based iAds, Popular Near Me, and Frequent Location features. While most of these are designed to enhance your iPhone experience, disabling them would offer you a lot more battery time than you would probably expect to see.
Other than this, disabling Background App Refresh, or setting it up the way you prefer could also help your cause. Either you can turn off the feature altogether, or you could limit the number of apps that refresh themselves in the background.
To make the necessary changes, make your way to the Settings app, and head to General. Select Background App Refresh in the following screen, and make changes based on your liking.
You could find a dedicated section in the Settings app, where you could look up the apps that suck up more battery than others. Go to Settings > General > Usage > Battery Usage.
If any of your apps crash or stop responding, the first thing you ought to do is swipe it away opening the recent apps tab using the home button. Once that’s been taken care of, try restarting the app, and it should then operate normally.
It is best to have your apps up-to-date, and one feature that ensures that you remain updated is auto-update. Once the developers roll-out an update, the app would update itself, without you having to worry. To turn this feature on, go to the Settings app and choose iTunes & App Store. In the following screen, you should be able to enable the feature.
Phone gets slow
While the iPhone isn’t really designed to slow down, or perform poorly, it generally happens when the storage starts filling up, making the phone get rather sluggish with the operations. Make your way to the Setting > General > Usage > Manage Storage.
If there are any photos or videos are of no use, make sure you delete them, or send them over to your cloud, or your PC. Delete apps that you no longer use and free some more space on the device.
Also, the parallax wallpaper also eats up a lot of the device, making it slow, or even frozen at times. To make the best out of such a device, it is better to disable it. To do so, go to General from the Settings app, and choose Accessibility. On the following screen, enable the Reduce Motion option.
If the iPhone is troublesome when it comes to connectivity, often failing to connect to the Wi-Fi, cellular network, or the Bluetooth, going into Airplane Mode generally helps. To do so, swipe up from the bottom of your screen, and tap the airplane button. Play around for 20 seconds before tapping it again to turn it off, and normal services should have been resumed by then.
However, if the device still doesn’t function properly, you might well have to setup your Wi-Fi, or the Bluetooth connection again. Do so by making your way to General from the Settings app, and select Reset. In the following screen, tap Reset Network Settings, and you should be able to connect to wireless networks thereafter.
Messages don’t send
If you screen a red exclamation-mark next to the message you sent, your message failed to send. For a failed SMS, try again and it might send. In case it doesn’t, try going into airplane mode for half a minute before trying again.
For iMessages, make sure you are connected to the Wi-Fi, and it is up and running. If you are using cellular data, make sure you haven’t crossed your data limit.
If nothing seems to be working for you, it is best to hard-reset your device; press and hold the home, and the power button together for a few seconds.
It is at times like these when all you wish to do is throw your phone out the window, or smash it against the wall. However, we suggest you do not lose your temper, as an unresponsive screen can be dealt with, and that too, with ease.
If all else seems to have failed, and the phone doesn’t respond to anything you do, go for the hard-reset. Press and hold the home and the power button together for a few seconds, following which you should see the Apple logo appear on your screen, indicating that the phone is rebooting.
