Today in this article we will understand how to free the ram memory from our Android or iOS smartphone . An annoying problem, less common than in the past, which can cause slowdowns: but solving is easier than expected. Handling the RAM properly will reduce resource consumption in your phone, making it effectively faster.
Ram memory: what it is and how to control it
What is ram memory? Acronym for Random Access Memory , it is nothing more than the memory in which temporary data are saved , those that are deleted for example when the device in question is turned off. Each application helps to fill the RAM with data and, having limited space availability, the smartphone can suffer annoying slowdowns by keeping numerous processes open at the same time. Today, smartphones offer a lot of gb of ram even in the cheapest ranges, but sometimes that’s not enough. All that remains is to see its consumption and know how to solve it if necessary.
Simply closing the apps may not solve and, therefore, it is necessary to intervene at the root of the problem . From the settings of the Android devices it is possible to check how much ram is being occupied by each individual application: in the event that these are “stealing” too much space, it is necessary to enter the settings of the offending app and forcibly close it so that consumption ceases , or alternatively you can restart the phone to simultaneously close all processes. The uninstallation hypothesis should not be ruled out – where possible – in order not to run into these problems.
At Apple , on the other hand, to free up the ram memory there are other methods: one of these is to unlock the phone, hold down the power button up until the word “Scroll to turn off” appears. Now you need to press the main button for five seconds and the ram will be released. But this obviously only applies to iPhones that have the main button at the bottom. Here, too, the discourse of uninstalling apps with too high ram consumption or doing a restart is always valid. Finally, to prevent applications from working even after they have been closed, go to “Settings”, then “General” and finally “Update background apps” to choose which ones to keep at bay.
With all these methods within everyone’s reach, it is not absolutely necessary to use an application to free up the ram memory . Also because often and willingly, those of this type promise an effectiveness that in reality does not exist .
