    Solution No.1: Force an app to close

    Let’s start with the simplest of all 5 ways to fix Safari freezing and crashing on iPhone 5c. When having a problem with certain app, including Safari, which isn’t working properly or it’s completely unresponsive, you should force that app to close, and here is how you can do that:

    • Click on the Home button two times
    • You will see the apps you have been using
    • Swipe right or left to find Safari
    • Swipe up to close it.
    Solution No.2: Clear Safari cache, cookies, and history

    • Confirm the action.
    Solution No.4: Restart your device

    To restart your device, press and hold the power button, and move the slider to the right to turn off your device. To turn it back on, press and hold the power button again.

    Solution No.5: Reset all settings
