Learn to Clear iPhone 8 RAM and Step Back into the Performance Game Instantly.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus pack 2 and 3GB of RAM, respectively. While that might sound like a measly amount of memory when compared to one of the latest Android flagships, but thanks to Apple's legendary memory management, it's more than enough to get you through tasks in a breeze. Of course, there will come a point where the software of the device will fail to clear out memory immediately, forcing you to take drastic measures such as restarting your device or just shutting down apps in the background. Quite frankly, you don't have to do that at all since you have the complete option of flushing the RAM on the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus manually, giving you a significant performance boost. Here's what you need to do.

Clear iPhone 8 RAM.

1. Press and hold the Sleep / Wake button until you see the 'slide to power off' screen.

2. Now press and hold the Home button until the 'slide to power off' screen goes away.

3. Once you're back at the home screen, this means that your RAM has been completely flushed and you will notice a significant boost in performance.

Keep one thing in mind - while this will give you a good step up in performance, but clearing out the RAM forcefully will take a toll on battery life since you will be loading your apps and data back up again from scratch. It's best to use this option wisely since iOS handles background tasks very efficiently. This method works best where speed is absolutely key in the tasks that you are performing, otherwise it's a nice party trick to share with your friends and family members.

Also, this method works with every iPhone, iPad or iPod touch model out there. Therefore it's not something exclusive to the iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. It's a simple case of holding down the Home button at the power down display and you'll be back in business in no time.
