Wipe Cache Partition, Repair apps & Galaxy App Booster

A few procedures that I personally find helpful after installing an update 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.
 
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 all S21 series 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 12.
(If you do not have Good Guardians in the App drawer, it can be downloaded from the Samsung Store)
 
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.

Whilst i do not have the S21 ,I can confirm that the Galaxy Apps Booster appears to work well. See more here https://itnext.io/magic-trick-of-galaxy-app-booster-684e1984576e

I do not work for Samsung or make Samsung Products but provide independent advice and valuable contributions.

I use the app booster app but I honestly can't tell if it really does help me much without it. When I first got my S21 Ultra I had very good SoT times of 10h+. Not really seen any difference after using the booster in performance or endurance. I use it anyway but even still it's hard for me to gauge its effectiveness.

Thanks for the feedback @GusB 

As I mention in post #1, it is my, "go to", procedures after any update.

They will not fix corrupt or incorrect settings or apps that have not been updated by their developers for Android 11 in the Play Store, (there are lots of those), but it does increase the device's performance for a lot of users. 

App Booster in particular, is so easy to use and does not affect your data.

Have updated post #1 of this thread to reflect the changes in Android 12.
