Insufficient Storage

With insufficient storage, iPhone faces difficulty in functioning and usually freezes or slows down. The device's performance and stability only improve if some data across the iPhone is reduced.

Outdated Installation

Apple will update its software solution to prevent the iPhone from freezing up. Therefore, updates that are not installed in time can make the device difficult to run.
infrequent reboots

Infrequent Reboots

Your iPhone might be facing some software bug that would necessarily put your device in frequent restarting or stuck on Apple logo. If this software bug prevails, such reboots can freeze the screen of the iPhone at any instant.
low battery

Low Battery

Having a discharged iPhone battery usually takes some time to turn on. If the iPhone is frozen and won't turn off or reset, the iPhone's battery would be unable to use. Make sure to charge your iPhones on time so that the device does not take much time to turn on.
buggy apps

Buggy Apps

Every application in the App Store is checked and regulated according to the rules put forth by it. However, some apps still have some bugs undetected in them. Whenever the user operates it, the iPhone usually freezes due to device incompatibility.
