You suddenly see a beautiful moment, you pick out your iPhone from your pocket, open up Camera to snap pics. But the camera on your iPhone is too slow to load up, so you fail to capture that great moment. A little frustrating!
You are not alone to find out the Camera app being sluggish and not being able to open up fast. I have encountered this problem many times, so I can feel the agony.
Fortunately, it’s not a big issue and you can easily fix your iPhone camera lagging issue. These are some trusted tips to get rid of the problem without any delay!
Solutions to iPhone Camera Lagging Issue
Solution 1: Force Restart Your iPhone
That’s is the same trick that you give a shot to shoot out miscellaneous glitches. So, try it out from the beginning to troubleshoot minor issues.
On iPhone 6s or older models: Press and hold both Power + Home buttons at once for up to 10 seconds until you see the Apple logo on the screen.
On iPhone 7/7 Plus: Press and hold the Volume Down button along with Power at once.
iPhone 8/8 Plus and iPhone X series: Press and release volume down button. Quickly, press and release volume up button. Then, press and hold the side button.
Solution 2: Software Update
“Software Update” has proven to be an effective solution in troubleshooting annoying issues. So, I recommend you with this reliable solution to living up to the expectation. Just launch the Settings app on your iPhone, tap on General → Software Update. If there is an update available, simply download and install it immediately. However, make sure your iPhone is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network, has ample storage and at least leftover 50% battery life.
Solution 3: Clean Up Your iPhone
If the Camera app on your iPhone has not yet to pick up the pace, there is a chance your iPhone is infested with many useless files. If you don’t delete junk files and cache from time to time, they not just fill up the entire device, but also make it slower.
In this case, I recommended you to clean up the whole device. If necessary, you can restore it as new after a factory reset. When normal tricks could not work as expected, you’d better go for the holistic solutions to solve the problem.
To factory reset directly from your iPhone, simply go to Settings > General > Reset and select the second line: Erase All Content & Settings. Wait for the process to complete and you are done.
After trying the methods above, I guess the Camera app would start behaving normally on your iPhone. Once you know how to overcome the lagging issue, you can try it out whenever you face this problem in the future.
