A few procedures that I personally find helpful after installing an update or if I encounter issues are wiping the phone's temporary Cache Partition and using the Galaxy Apps Booster.

 

Wiping the Cache Partition is considered best practice after a major firmware update and can solve a lot of issues, such as lagging and apps foreclosing. This does not affect your data and is very simple and easy to perform.

 

Whilst in Recovery mode you can also select the option to, "Repair apps", in case you are experiencing app issues. (N.B. This feature appears to have been removed in the ONE UI 6.1 update)
 
This video will show you how to clear your phone's temporary Cache Partition of any corrupt files and detritus that may cause issues for you. It works on both the Z Fold and Z Flip series devices.

 

(NB. Connecting your device via USB may only be needed for the international  devices)
 

 
I also use the Galaxy Apps Booster as well, which can be found in the, "Good Guardians", app in the App drawer of Android 13> on some models.
If you do not have Good Guardians in the App drawer, it can be downloaded from the Samsung Store along with its component apps. The app is available only in the USA, Europe, Vietnam, South Korea, and China for flagship devices. See screenshot
 
Simply run the Galaxy App Booster. If it is your first time using this app it can take awhile to finish. Subsequent runs are around 4 min's.
 
You may also wish to try out some of the other apps in Good Guardians

I find I have to connect with a USB to get it into the recovery menu.
Same Process will work for most of the phones old and new

The international devices need to connect via USB but for instance, the U.S.A. and Canadian devices don't need to. It has been this way since at least the S20.

I would wholeheartedly recommend installing Good Guardians and its suite of apps if they are not already installed and are available for your region.

I checked for Good Guardians on my phone (A54) and it's not there, check on Play Store and nothing is coming up that fits what I'm looking for?

I am given to understand that it is only available for the flagship devices... S20, S21, S22, S23 and Fold and Flip phones.
