    Hello, I have an iPhone XS Max and iOS 13. My question is how I can to free up RAM? When I had the iOS 12 so I turned up Assistive Touch and before shutting down I clicked on Assistive Touch and RAM was clean. How I can do it in iOS 13?

    Thank you

    Clean up RAM? What for? The operating system does that very good if it needs to.

    RAM is there to be used; empty RAM is like a huge refrigerator that‘s empty. Pretty useless.

    RAM cleaners and the like are just snake oil; for your own benefit: don‘t do that

    I'm not running the beta of iOS 13, so perhaps it is different, but in iOS 12 you can swipe up from the very bottom of the screen and then hold your finger down a moment longer before lifting. This will bring up the multi-tasking control that shows all of your recently used apps in a 'card deck' kind of display. You can scroll right or left through the apps with swipes right or left; you can 'purge' apps from the display by flicking them from the center upward. Supposedly purging an app in this fashion will kick it out of memory (and free up its memory). However, I agree with Loki that in modern versions of iOS I've never seen much point in clearing out apps this way.

    What problem are you having exactly? Memory shouldn’t be anything you need to be concerned with. I’ve never had any hiccups on any of my devices including my SE
