"Help! My iPhone 7 keeps freezing. What could be wrong with it? And what can I do to solve such an issue?"
Well, this is quite a common complaint from many iPhone users. Getting a freezing iPhone, your daily life and work would be in mess, especially when you know nothing to do. But calm down now, here in this article, we'll focus on this issue and guide you to fix the freezing error quickly. Read on please.
Method 1: Restart or reset your iPhone. Press and hold the "Sleep/Wake" button until the "slide to power off" message appears. Slide the arrow to power off your phone. Turn your device back on by holding the "Sleep/Wake" button until the Apple icon appears. If this doesn't resolve the issue, or you cannot power on your fully charged iPhone, try resetting the device. Simultaneously press and hold the "Sleep/Wake" and "Home" buttons for at least 10 seconds. Depending on the original issue, the device should power on or take you to the "slide to power off" screen.
Method 2: Close applications by holding down the "Sleep/Wake" button until the "slide to power off" message appears and then holding the "Home" button for about six seconds until the app shuts down and the home screen reappears. Sometimes, running too many multiple apps may cause the iPhone freezes, so you can shut down the ones you aren't using.
Method 3: Restore your iPhone if the above methods didn't work. Connect your iPhone to your PC via USB > Select your iPhone in the "Devices" menu and navigate to the "Summary" tab > Choose Restore" and create a backup.
Method 4: Download a system monitor. Applications are available through the iTunes store that provides information on your iPhone's performance, such as memory usage, system logs and cache information. By monitoring this information, you can spot problematic applications or determine that a particular setting is causing your device to slow down or freeze. Additionally, some of these applications allow you to release your phone's system memory, which can improve your iPhone's performance and resolve certain freezing issues.
