2. Lock Apps To Load Fast

Generally, when you open an app in your phone for the first time it takes time and gets stored in phone RAM so that when you open next time app will load faster. This is how ram works to fasten your phone. Now there’s is an option in Redmi phones that you can lock apps in memory. So When you clear your phone ram, the memory of these apps will not be clear from RAM.

 How to Lock apps in Memory?

Just hold your home key for a second, it will show all the open apps. Now simply slide down the app icon (that you want to lock) and leave. You will see a lock symbol on that app icon.
