There are some tips allow you to speed up iOS 12 on iDevice as well.
Here's how:
1. Reboot or Hard Reboot iDevice
Supposed that your device becomes clumsy after upgrading to iOS 12, you can first try to reboot the iPhone/iPad/iPod. If it does not work, then you can try a hard reboot. The methods are as below: - For iPhone 6S or earlier iPhone, you can press and hold the "Home" and "Power" buttons at the same time until the Apple logo appears. - For iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, please press the "Power" and "Volume Down" keys simultaneously. And release them while the Apple logo appears. - For iPhone X/8/8 Plus and newer device, you need to quickly press and release the "Volume Up" button and then quickly hold down and release the "Volume Down" button. Next, press and hold the "Power" button till you see the Apple logo.
2. Update Apps to Latest Version
When the iDevice is updated to iOS 12, some applications in old version might not run properly on the new system. So to ensure the smooth running of the Apps and operating system, you need to update them to the newest version.
3. Disable the Unnecessary Functions
Provided that you are still using an old iPhone or iPad like iPhone 6S/6/5S, you can select to give up some functions, such as: - Background App Refresh: Go to "Settings > General > Background App Refresh" to turn it off.
