    Hi All,

    Is there an app made by Apple which cleans the junk from an iPhone like Clean My Mac cleans junk from a hard drive on a mac book? I am hoping there might be an app like this for iPhone in order to speed up the processing or RAM on the iPhone.

    Please let me know if there is one, or isn't one.

    Thanks!

    As above, nothing exists because it isn't needed.

    If you have jailbreak there is an app - iCleaner Pro which cleans device up. But reducing animations is way better.

    But I repeat - only when you are jailbroken

    You can reset settings, backup and restore, or even restore as new.

    I had to recently restore as new as all my apps were freezing, even the camera.

    I would call CleanMyMac malware - it is known to result in an unbootable system.

    Those generic apps providing such feature would never exactly know what on your device could be considered as "junk". If you do so, then maybe your saved game data, app state, or something else you want to preserve is deleted after "cleaning the junk".

    I managed to "clean the junk" using an app and the result was "meh" cause it only cleaned 1GB of junk. And it did not solve the problem which photos.app erroneously occupying 2GB. Some hacks introduced in YouTube might be a better option to clean junk files.

    No need to clean it up except to make sure the OS has plenty of RAM to operate and run a little as you can in the background.

    All those apps do is clean cache (which the whole point of cache is to speed UP your system), and as said before, the OS itself takes care of this on it's own.

    There is an app in the App Store called Memory & Disk that may do what you are looking for.

    Turning off transparency and motion do help. Also if you can, try to not fill your drive near full. It’s been reported and I have noted myself that keeping about 1/3 to 1/4 of memory free keeps things running faster.

    Sometimes a particular app can cause weird things to happen. Removing that app can bring back that smooth running phone. Also, I just recently started having issues with Apple’s mail app freezing, not downloading mail, closing after few seconds. Tried all kinds of things, but problem would always come back after a few minutes.

    Finally traced cause to yahoo email. All of sudden after years of no issues, it began not playing nice with Apple mail app. Weird part it was affecting all email addresses. Permanent solution was to remove yahoo mail from Apple app.

    Downloaded Yahoo’s own email app just for the Yahoo email address. Now all works fine again. Apparently Yahoo changed something that did not play nice with Apple’s mail app. Kids not playing together well in sandbox. Don’t forget to turn off all the yahoo tracking. There are dozens of setting to switch off.
