Nobody enjoys waiting seconds or minutes for an internet page to fully load. Especially when you’re trying to access that page from an Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, the slow internet lag is even harder to accept. You have a cool iPhone supposed to work like charm but it doesn’t. You can’t upload your Facebook or Twitter feed, you can’t see pictures on Instagram, you can barely listen to a song on YouTube and the list could go on and on. If you want to make it all stop and make the internet work as fast as it should, you can do at least two essential things.
First, check the internet speed on mobile data of iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 8
If you turn off the Wi-Fi, you should have the chance to test your internet speed based on your mobile plan alone. This setting is easily accessible from the Settings menu. Touch its slider to turn it from On to Off and notice if or how the internet speed improves once you disable Wi-Fi on iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and iPhone 8.
Second, clear the iPhone 8/8 Plus, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max cache memory
Clearing the cache can be summed up to booting into Recovery Mode and using the option labeled as Wipe Cache Partition. This strategy, as opposed to the hard reset, will leave all your data – photos, messages, call history and contact details etc. – in place. All you have to do is to carefully read our guide on how to wipe the phone cache on iPhone 8 and everything will be crystal-clear for you.
Third, you can consider asking technical support
Some people will rush into doing so from the first time they experience the internet lag. Others save it for the last, knowing that if they take the iPhone for a physical checkup they will have to wait for some time until they get a resolution. If you’ve lost your patience, take it to an Apple shop. If not…
A few slow internet causes that you can check on iPhone 8, iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max:
- You have reached the speed reduction imposed by your data speed limit;
- Your internet cache is either full or corrupted;
- Your browser version is outdated and needs an update;
- Your iPhone firmware needs an update;
- Your device memory needs to be cleaned;
- Your background apps need to be stopped;
- The network needs to be decongested;
- The website is under too heavy traffic;
- The Wi-Fi network has a too low signal.
When you take every single one of the causes that we just listed, you can see what measure you need to put into practice. These are all things that you can handle all by yourself. But, just like we suggested above, you can also trust a technician in taking care of all the probable causes and coming up with the best possible fixes. The only question left is – are you willing to do the work or you’re rather more comfortable with paying for a professional service?
Either way, the weak internet connection on iPhone Xr, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus will sooner or later be strengthened. We hope we’ve helped you in this direction.
