How to Clear RAM on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR: A Quick Way to Fix Sluggish Performance

Though the process of resetting RAM on iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and iPhone XR is a bit different, you can get it done quickly—after the initial setup!

Powered by 3/4GB of RAM, iPhone X series is designed to run in top gear. Whether you want to play high-octane games, watch your favorite movies or browse the web for hours, the smartphone can stand up to the high demand admirably. However, if you burn the device on both ends extensively, you may have to clear the RAM on your iPhone X, Xs, Xs Max, and XR from time to time so that it continues to deliver the goods smoothly.

Resetting memory on the previous iPhones (or iPad) is a tad easier thanks to the availability of Home button. But how do you flush the RAM on iPhone X series as it lacks the iconic button? AssistiveTouch comes to the rescue! Though the process is not as straightforward, it works just fine in resetting the RAM on the new iPhones.
