If you are using an Android device, you can easily disable the system animations to make your smartphone or tablet run faster without rooting the device. For iPhone and iPad users, they will have to jailbreak their devices to perform the same task.
However, in iOS 9, an iPhone glitch allows you to easily turn off animations without breaking into the system. In reality, not everyone likes to jailbreak, as it comes with many security risks. You can follow the steps below to disable system animations on a stock iOS 9 iPhone.
- Step 1: Make sure that your Apple’s built-in keyboard is enabled before moving forward to the next step. You will be able to return to your favorite iOS keyboard once you disable the system animations.
- Step 2: Head to Settings > General > Accessibility > Assistive Touch. Besides, you can ask Siri to activate Assistive Touch by saying Turn on Assistive Touch. You will see a white bubble-shaped menu that lets you know Assistive Touch is now enabled.
- Step 3: Return to your home screen and drag the Assistive Touch button to bottom right corner of the screen.
- Step 4: Swipe down to activate Spotlight Search, and swipe up to dismiss it.
- Step 5: Repeat the step 4 of opening and closing Spotlight Search for around 20 times( depending on your device) until you notice that the animations disappear.
Keep in mind that if you have trouble turning off the system animations, and you are using an iPhone 6s or an iPad. You can activate Spotlight, and then continuously rotate your device. Make sure to turn off the screen orientation lock before rotating your iOS device.
Note: System animations will return if you turn off your device.
