    Do we just clear out history in browser? I can't seem to find other ways to really maintain clear out stuff to keep phone running like new. It runs great, just saying.

    Nothing really needs to be done. Just use it as you use it.

    Closing apps when you're finished with them stops the RAM being clogged up. Double-press home button and then go left and swipe up for all the apps that you are not using, to stop them running in the background.

    RAM is meant to be used not to sit free. The system manages it just fine the vast majority of the time for the vast majority of people. Most apps also don't run in the background short of finishing something. There are a few that can and sometimes do, and in those particular cases it might make sense to close them for someone that doesn't want that for whatever reason.

    My iPhone lags with too much in the background. It's always much better when they're all closed. Though imagine my frustration when I accidentally close the music app :eek:

    It's good to clear up the app switcher from time to time. The app switcher is absolutely worthless (as an app switcher) if you've got a ton of apps lingering in the background.

    Not really worthless even in that type of scenario if you switch between the last few apps you used for the most part.
