Start off by rebooting the app; this may help clear out minor system errors and give it a fresh start.

Apple’s iOS 7 is vibrant and beautiful, yet also battery-sucking if left untouched. However, there are options you can toggle to maintain that all-important green battery icon on your screen bright and healthy.
As an example, you could disable the 3D Homescreen feature, which uses your phone’s gyroscope to create a parallax shift effect, and lower auto-brightness so your screen isn’t constantly flashing like an emergency response helicopter. Furthermore, uninstalling some Apple apps could free up additional memory – though this won’t increase battery life!
- Tap Done
iOS 7 updates are free for iPhones, iPod Touches, and iPads running iOS 6 or later. We suggest connecting your device to a power source before tapping “Download & Install.”

Schuster claims he’s reached out to Apple support several times – calling, messaging and filing reports – without success in getting his problem addressed. According to KTRK News, he feels hopeless and fearful someone could easily take possession of his device and access all of his information. “It’s just really scary knowing someone could easily gain entry,” said Schuster.
