Reset your iPhone

When the screen is unresponsive for some reason, it does not necessarily mean your device is broken or the problem is hardware-related. We can take this situation as an example: your iPhone won’t turn on, and you think the battery or some other component is damaged. Most of the time, it is just a software crash. The problem can be fixed with a hard reset. The same goes for iPhone red screen of death. You can’t use your touchscreen to access the iPhone settings, so the first thing you should try is a hard reset. Don’t worry, this won’t delete any of your data.

  • Press and hold the Home button and the sleep/wake button at the same time
  • Keep holding the buttons until you see the Apple logo on the screen (some people say you need to hold them for 10 seconds, but it usually takes more time)
  • When Apple logo appears, release the buttons.
