Have you ever read detective stories? Just like every perfect case has one silly flaw, every perfect gadget does throw up one issue or the other. Just like your iPhone. It might be the most engaging and reliable device, but it does have issues like lagging and freezing of screens. The problem becomes even worse if say you are travelling or are in middle of sending an important email. You are left with no option but to sit back and wait for the screen to revive. But while you do so, you can follow some easy tips, which might help a faster and safer recovery. Read on…
Restarting the phone is the most obvious. Hold on the Sleep/Wake button (top left) and switch it off. In case it does not shut down, hold the Home Button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time for at least 10 seconds for a hard reset. Once the Apple logo appears onscreen, you are sorted. Restarting helps you complete updates or downloads of your recently installed apps.
Well, this might take a few minutes to respond, especially when your phone is running on a low battery, but at times recharging your phone, dose help in reviving the frozen screen.
At times a single app refuses to work and you get stuck. In this case, press the Home button twice to access all the apps in use. The aim is to close all the apps that are not used. Having several apps open without any immediate use not only eats into your battery but also clogs your screen. So clear the jam.
iPhones promise you as much as 32 GB of space but that does not mean that you exhaust its limit. Excessive storage of data may be another reason of frequent freezing of your device, especially in case of an app-packed phone. Try to do away with some apps that are rarely used and leave an empty space of 1-2 GB so that your phone can breathe easy.
Go to the Software update section in Settings and update your iPhone, as an outdated OS could be a possible reason for a frequently freezing screen. You may also plug it into your laptop and update.
If nothing seems to work, the final resort is a system restore. One major setback with it, however, is that it restore the system to the original factory settings, thereby, deleting all your media files, but It does work. So ensure a foolproof back-up before opting for a restore. Ensure that your version of iTunes is up to date and carry on with the restore through your computer.
In case all the aforementioned tips fail to respond, connect with the Apple support and unfreeze.
