For most users, keeping your iOS device up to date speeds up the device quite a bit. This is however, not the case on older iPhones. Apple brings out a new iOS every now and then. These updates tend to slow down older devices like the iPhone 7 or 8. The general advice here is to wait about a day after upgrading iOS. This is because of the indexing and tasks running in the background. Only then you’re able to see if it is as slow as it seems. If all else fails, try downgrading or resetting your device.

Even further steps can be taken. Users say that disabling visuals and enabling dark mode helps a lot. Turning off unwanted notifications as well as removing junk is beneficial to the performance. Clean out your storage and ensure there is enough free space available. Close down all the background apps running on your device.
