How to Unfreeze an iPhone

I freaked out when my first iPhone decided to freeze. It was completely frozen that nothing I could do to unfreeze the iPhone. After years of using iOS device, I found out that it is actually quite common for iPads, iPods and iPhones to freeze. It could be a simple problem, but there could be several major reasons why an iPhone freezes. You will need to find out the reasons behind why iPhones freezes and learn how you can unfroze iPhones when it happens. It is actually easy once you know how and you could probably save some money from being spent on fixing your iPhone.

Part 1: What can cause your iPhone freezing?

It is important to note that you iPhone is essentially a mini version of your Mac or PC. And just like its bigger predecessors, there could be several reasons that could cause your

iPhone freezing. Here are some of the more common reasons for the problem:

  1. You are using an older version of iOS. Not updating your iOS could be the reason why your phone is not working properly. An updated software indicates that Apple has improved how your iPhone run and fix any problems the previous version had. Mobile app manufacturers also update the apps’ coding when there is a new software update because it would enhance the way the app work – so if you update your app without updating your iOS, it could cause and incompatibility issue and cause your iPhone to freeze.
  2. How many internal memory does your iPhone has? Low internal memory can affect your iPhone’s performance and cause it to perform inconsistently - look out for this cause if you have only 16GB to begin with.
  3. A bad app (it can either be buggy or corrupted) is often the cause of iPhone freezing. A tell-tale sign is when your iPhone freezes when certain apps are running. If you use a phone casing, have a habit of using your iPhone while charging it or leave it in hot, confined spaces, your iPhone has more possibilities of freezing. This is because it is too busy cooling itself off than allocating resources to the operations of the iPhone.
