5 steps to improve your IOS app performance

try to do the following

  • Decreasing app launch time improves the user experience, and reduces the chances of the iOS watchdog timer terminating the app.
  • Decreasing overall memory use reduces the likelihood of iOS freeing your app’s memory in the background and improves responsiveness when a user switches back to your app.
  • Reducing disk writes speeds up your app’s overall performance, makes it more responsive, and reduces wear on users’ device storage.
  • Decreasing hang rate and hang duration improves your users’ perception of your app’s performance and responsiveness.
  • Reducing battery consumption and the use of power-hungry device features makes your app more reliable and helps ensure that the rest of the user’s device is available when needed.

1- Gather Data About Your App’s Current Performance

To thoroughly understand your app’s performance, combine information from multiple sources:

  • Use MetricKit to gather metrics and record them in your own tools. These metrics are in the form of histograms that record the frequency of observed values over a day. MetricKit goes beyond the metrics shown in the Metrics organizer to include average pixel luminance, cellular network conditions, and durations associated with custom OSSignpost events in your app.
  • Investigate feedback from your users about their experiences with released versions of your app. Invite users to send their feedback through email or a dedicated interface within your app. Ask them about their experiences using the app — both what works well and any problems they encounter.

2- Determine the Most Important Aspect to Improve

Use the information gained in your observations and your understanding of your app’s purpose and expected use patterns to spot the greatest opportunities for improvement. Some performance issues are independent of the type of app under investigation. An app that takes a long time to launch or is unresponsive to users’ attempts to manipulate the interface results in users feeling they have no control over the app.

3- Profile Your App

Use Instruments to profile your app, choosing a profiling template that’s relevant to the metric you’re considering:

4- Make the Next Change

Implement the change you’ve planned as a result of your investigation. Create an “after” profile in Instruments that you can compare with the “before” profile, to ensure your change resulted in an improvement. Consider writing a performance test in XCTest, to protect against future regressions in performance and as a record that this problem existed and has been fixed.

5- Compare the Changed Behavior with Your Original Data

After you change your app to address the most important performance issue you observed, confirm that the change had the desired effect and that the level of improvement is sufficient. Use the graphs of performance metrics for each version of your app in Xcode’s Metrics organizer, to see whether the change resulted in an improvement or a regression.
