After iOS 12, some users have been complaining that their iPhone keeps freezing. I have also had this freezing issue on my iPhone. One of my friends suggested me some solution to fix this problem. After trying, there was no issue on my iPhone. Here’s I am going to tell you some solution to fix iPhone keeps freezing issue. Hope that the below fixes will help you.
Solution 1: Hard Reset Your iPhone
iPhone 6 and earlier
Press and hold the Home Button and Power Button (Sleep/Wake) until the Apple Logo Appears.
iPhone 7 & 7 Plus
Press and hold the Side Button and Volume Down Button until the Apple Logo appears.
iPhone 8, 8 Plus, & X
- Press the Volume Up Button and release it.
- Press the Volume Down Button and release it.
- Press and hold the Side Button until the Apple Logo appears.
Note: Don’t press “Volume Up” and “Volume Down” at the same time.
Solution 2: Reset All Settings
- Launch “Settings”->“General”->“Reset”.
- Tap “Reset All Settings”.
- Enter your Restrictions Passcode.
- Tap “Reset All Settings” in the pop-up box.
- Again tap “Reset All Settings” to confirm.
Solution 3: Force Close Apps
Close the app while you are using the app. Then double click “Home” button. Here you can see the all closed apps. You have to swipe the app to close. After that, reopen the app and try to download or install the app.
Solution 4: Check Analytics Data
- Launch “Settings”.
- Click “Privacy” -> “Analytics” -> “Analytics Data”.
Here you can see some list of apps and services. Some files are either recognized by you or you won’t. Some items are unnecessary and it causes the freeze issue on your iPhone.
Solution 5: Update/Restore your iPhone in DFU/Recovery Mode (If screen not responding)
Before doing it, backup your iPhone. Because this action may erase all data from your device.
- Connect your iPhone to Mac/Computer via Lightning (USB) cable.
- Open iTunes on PC/Computer.
- Make sure that iTunes is updated to the latest version.
- Then Force Restart your iPhone (follow the steps from solution 1).
- Don’t leave Buttons after seeing the Apple Logo. Keep holding it until Recovery Mode screen (iTunes screen) appears.
- Select “Update” in the pop-up box. If you select “Update”, iTunes will try to reinstall iOS without deleting your data. Wait until the process is finished.
- Then Force Restart your iPhone.
Note: If it doesn’t work out, select “Restore” instead of “Update”.
