NO ONE wants a sluggish smartphone but it's a problem that happens all too often.
Slowdown is something we sadly come to expect after a few years with the same handset but you'd be a bit miffed if it happened on a recent buy.
Well, that's what happened to one Reddit user, not long after getting an iPhone 13.
They noticed their device was running at about half power.
But luckily they worked out a neat little trick that put things back in the fast lane again.
And all you have do is carry out a force reboot.
How to do a force reboot on iPhone
The force reboot is not like the usual switch off method.
Instead, this gives everything a proper reset.
So before you think of going ahead, make sure everything is saved, otherwise it'll be lost.

While forced reboots are safe, Apple support documentation says you should only do it as a last resort when a normal restart doesn't fix the problem.
So once you're ready, just press and quickly release the volume up button, followed by the same on the volume down button, and then press and hold the side button.
Hold down on the side button until the Apple logo appears – after which, you can let go.
Now your phone should be freshened up and hopefully perform a bit quicker.
You can also do this trick on older iPhones as well, not just the iPhone 13.
