5 Ways to fix a frozen iPhone screen!
If you’ve been having issues with your iPhone screen not being as responsive as it used to be, here are a few quick and easy ways that might solve your issue.
- Clean your screen!
- Our iPhones and iPads are always on the go with us and because of this they gather a lot of dirt and gunk on the screen which can affect the screen and devices performance.
- Screen wipes or a soft, micro-fibre cloth are the best ways to clean your screen.
- Updating Apps also deleting and reinstalling them
- You may notice a particular app is freezing the iPhone screen or isn’t performing like it should.
- Firstly, check for an update on the App Store as the developer may have fixed a known bug/issue in the app.
- Secondly, you can delete the app and re-install it from the App Store.
- Do a hard reboot
- Doing a hard reboot is normally the best way to solve any screen unresponsiveness but also any other performance issues that your phone might be having.
- If your device is an iPhone 6s or older, hold down the home button and the lock/power button at the same time until you see the Apple logo then let it reboot.
- If your device is an iPhone 7 hold the volume down button and the sleep/wake button at the same time until it reboots.
- Clear up storage space
- If your device is low on storage space then it will start to slow down and this can affect screen responsiveness.
- You can check your storage space in, Settings > General > Storage and iCloud Usage > Manage Storage.
- Try and keep at least 1GB of available space on your device.
- Still having issues? Do a full restore
- If none of the above methods have worked then you might need to do a full restore.
- Firstly, make sure your device is backed up either on iTunes or iCloud.
- Then erase the data and settings and restore from the backup.
