What to do if the iPhone freezes and does not turn off?

Yes, iPhone smartphones can also freeze. You may never come across this, but the fact remains. However, this is not a problem, because after rebooting the device will probably restore operation. The problem is different – the iPhone is impossible in the usual way to disconnect or restart. Accordingly, the question begs – what to do?

Indeed, if you press the POWER button, nothing will happen..

Apple has come up with a way to reboot the device for such situations. And here it is: you need to press not only the POWER button, but also the HOME button, and do it simultaneously! Thus, you press the keys and hold them on the order of 10-20 seconds until the screen goes blank.

Once the screen goes blank, you can release the keys. If suddenly the reboot did not take place, and the screen went blank, press the POWER button to turn on your device.

If holding the HOME and POWER buttons for 10-20 seconds does not help, hold them longer. In some cases, this may take a minute or more, but the device must reboot..

Please note that this method works on all iPhones up to 5, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, 6s Plus. In the case of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, the process is somewhat different. The fact is that Apple, starting with these models, refused the physical HOME button, so the forced reboot procedure has changed.

If you have an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, you must hold down the POWER key, as well as the volume down key, and hold them until the device reboots.

But what if the HOME or POWER key does not work? Forcing a reboot of a hung device will not work. In this case, you only have one thing left – to wait for the moment when the battery sits in the iPhone, put it on charge and turn on the device in the usual way.
