“Oh no! My iPhone is frozen again!”
Here at Repairly, we hate to see people without their devices, as we know how important they are. Our phones are now the gateway into our intimate relationships with the most important people in our lives.
It’s not unusual for your Iphone to freeze every once in a while. Do you stab furiously at the keys or worse still slap your device on the palm impatiently to get it going again?
By doing those, you are not likely to successfully unfreeze your iPhone. Here is a better approach to reactivate your device:
Close all running apps
Your iPhone screen may freeze as a result of an irresponsive application. This could happen if you are running multiple apps simultaneously. When your iPhone screen freezes, press the “Home” button twice for you to see a display of your running apps. Close each of the applications one by one. When you are done, press the “Home” button twice to close all other running applications.
Restart your iPhone
Restarting your iPhone is a simple go-to when you experience a Frozen Iphone 6. Long press the sleep button until you see “Power off” display. Slide / Click to power off the iPhone, then switch it back on. If your frozen iPhone still 7 does not respond after you have done this, please proceed to resolve as stated below.
Reset your iPhone
You can also easily reactivate your frozen iPhone by resetting it. Long press the “Sleep” and “Home” buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds. Your iPhone 7 will power on and then display “slide to power off”. Power it off and restart your frozen iPhone a few moments later.
Consider updating your iPhone’s operating system iOS
Your iPhone frozen problem may be simply due to your iOS alerting you for a need to update. Apple regularly releases updates that prevent the freezing of your iPhone. Plug your iPhone to a computer, open the iTune software and click “Update”. If you have the iPhone 5 or a later version, go to “Settings – Genera l— Software Update – Install Now”. This will start the iPhone software update. It is better to back up your data before you start this procedure.
Once your frozen iPhone is restored to its optimal performance, you are advised to take the next precaution.
Use iPhone System Monitor
Itunes have applications that provide updates on your iPhone’s performance from time to time. Using the System Monitor allows you to identify applications that are malfunctioning or that have the tendency to freeze your iPhone. You may clean up your phone’s memory, clear cache and system logs and manage your iPhone’s memory.
The procedure described above should fix your frozen iPhone.
