Give your cellphone a fresh start for the New Year. Here are 4 quick and easy steps you can take to start 2018 with your device working its best, and to have all of your apps and key data right up-to-date.
Add birthdays, anniversaries, and other important dates to your calendar.
Once you’ve added them, you’ll never miss a special day again. You can setup reminders ahead of time, so you’ll remember to pick up a gift, and even share entries with family or friends if you’re using the iCal or Google Calendar apps.
Backup your photos.
Your camera roll is probably packed with photos from the holidays. Save them to your computer, an SD card, or cloud storage–then, delete them from your phone’s memory. This will free up additional space so you can start creating and saving new memories, and will also help your device perform better.
Download a new app that helps with your New Year’s resolutions.
With more than two million apps out there to choose from, it’s highly likely you’ll find one, and possibly more, that will serve as a handy aid to help you accomplish your goals. Consider trying a fitness app, a budget app, or a mindfulness app to keep you on track.
Do a quick phone clean-up.
Now is a great time to review your apps, contacts, and downloaded files. Remove any that you no longer need, and make sure you have up-to-date information for all of your most important contacts.
Commit to spending just a few minutes doing each of these, and I guarantee you’ll be happy with the results all year long!
