Device maintenance


The device maintenance feature provides an overview of the status of your device’s battery, storage, memory, and system security. You can also automatically optimize the device with a tap of your finger, using the quick optimization feature. This feature improves device performance through the following actions:

   • Clearing some memory.
   • Deleting unnecessary files and closing apps running in the background.
   • Managing abnormal battery usage.
   • Scanning for crashed apps and malware.

Our guide will show you how with a few taps, you can quickly improve the overall performance of your device and how you can choose a performance profile that fits best your usage (such as playing games or music).

Note: Screens and settings available may vary depending on your Canadian wireless service provider and your software version (Android Nougat, version 7, was used for this FAQ).
