I am running IOS 9.3.2 on an iPhone 6. I have noticed two problems over the past couple of months, and this is now becoming a major frustration.
First, my phone continues to slow down in its operation. I realize I do have the 16 gb phone nearly full, but the slowing process continues to get worse.
Second, I am noticing that, when I use the Braille input mode, it isn't recognizing all the dots as I touch the screen. Often I have to rotor way back to headings and then rotor again to Braille to have it recognize what I'm doing. I have had sighted folks check the screen, and it appears to be clean. I have also cleaned it a couple of times with a lent-free cloth.
I am eligible to upgrade soon but can't quite do that yet. I'd like to ease my frustrations a bit.
I have reset the phone both by turning it off and on and by pressing the Power and Home buttons together until the Apple appears. I have also done junk cleaning in Battery Doctor, and actually do this at least twice per week.
I am guessing I need to do a restore. I have heard it is better to restore from iTunes than from iCloud, and, quite frankly, I don't like iTunes.
So here are my questions. First, has anyone done a tutorial or podcast on restoring from iTunes? I have done a search on the site, and nothing is showing up. So I thought I would ask.
Second, when one restores from iTunes, is there a way to restore most of your files yet leave some in iTunes in order to give the phone a bit more memory?
And lastly, does anyone have an idea as to how long it would take to restore a 16-gb iPhone from iTunes?
I realize some of these questions may be elementary, but I need to get this solved as quickly as possible. I use the iPhone for just about everything except the work I do at my desk in my office at my job. Any suggestions, ideas, or thoughts are welcome.
