The solution to this is not magic, but neither should you be radical and go back to iOS 9 if iOS 10 is giving you problems. What you can do is try to optimize the system so that the device can cope with the new software requirements. Here are some tips you can follow.

Reduces movement

One feature implemented in iOS 7 was effects and transparency. You can reduce them and even remove them completely not only to improve your view but also to improve performance as they do not consume a processor. This is done from Settings> General> Accessibility> Reduce motion. Automatically the animations and effects of iOS 10 will be disabled and everything will go much more smoothly.

Another option available is to reduce the transparencies , to do this you have to follow a very similar process: Settings> General> Accessibility> Increase contrast and activate the options Reduce transparency and Darken colors

Disable Background Update

The background update allows applications to update their content while they are connected to the Internet and you are not using them. What this does is make the iPhone work constantly to see if there’s anything new, so turning the feature off will increase your speed and also save battery power. By going to Settings> General> Update in the background you can enable or disable the option for specific apps as well as all of them.

Free storage in the device

If you have an iPhone or iPad with reduced or almost full storage, the best thing you can do is a little cleaning . The tips are typical: use photos in the cloud, stream music, delete apps and games you don’t use… All this will make the phone or tablet consume less content and you can work more comfortably with the resources you have.

Restart your iPhone or iPad

If none of these options are sufficient, try rebooting your iPhone or iPad . A machine reboot usually fixes these problems because the cache is cleared and the RAM is released.

Make a clean installation

It is always recommended that when upgrading to a new iOS version a clean installation is performed. The changes made in each version are significant, and often result in the previous content not being fully compatible. Make a copy of what you are interested in from your iPhone or iPad and then delete all the content and install iOs 10 from scratch.
