Apple’s iPhones launched after 2019 are powered by A13 or A14 Bionic processors (including iPhone 11 and 12). That makes them around 20% faster than previous iPhones. But still, they get slower with time. And if you are a heavy user and play heavy games on your iPhone 12, you may face intermittent lags. Though you can clear RAM on your iPhone 12, Pro, and Pro Max frequently to avoid these issues.
iPhone 12 variants come with 4 GB and 6 GB RAM which is quite enough for most of your daily activities. But if you are a power user, your iPhone 12 may get slow after rough and tough usage of a few days. One of the best and easiest ways to make your iPhone 12 run smooth again is to flush the RAM and clear the temporary files.
