Facing iPhone frame drop issue? Here's how to fix it
Many iPhone and iPad users sometimes face the issue of occasional frame drops on their devices. While it could be annoying, there is apparently a way to solve this problem. A Reddit user earlier came up with a solution to address this issue while restoring your iOS device to normal performance. Here is everything to know about the fix.
Frame drops while scrolling on iOS
According to several user complaints shared online, some iPhone and iPad units have often shown signs of occasional frame drops and stutters in response to certain actions. The problem isn't widespread but can be noticed while scrolling on iOS home screens. It makes the iOS transitions and animations less smooth than they're supposed to be.
Fix comes in form of accessibility setting
As Apple has not issued a fix for the frustrating glitch, a Reddit user did some digging and found an accessibility setting that can help stop this stuttering for good: Follow Focus. The person claimed that disabling this setting can end the stuttering and frame drops on a number of iPhone models as well as the iPad Pro.
Steps to disable this setting
To disable the Follow Focus option, head over to Settings > Accessibility > Zoom and turn the toggle for "Follow Focus" off. Notably, BGR previously tried the workaround and found immediate improvement in the performance of a number of affected iPhones. However, as it is not an official fix, we cannot be 100% sure that it would work on every affected iPhone and iPad.
