If you happen to experience a blue screen appearing on your iPhone before it suddenly reboots, this is known as the “blue screen of death” and is due to a software issue that could be caused by certain apps. Here are the steps you can take to fix the problem:
- The first step is to go into Settings > General > Software Update and make sure your device is up to date. Most of the time the problem is fixed by simply updating to the latest OS.
- If your iPhone is up-to-date and you’re still getting the blue screen of death, then the next step is to perform a full backup and restore of your device. For a detailed guide on how to backup and restore your iPhone click here
- If you are still experiencing the blue screen issue after trying a backup and restore, try performing a restore and choosing “setup as new iPhone” when given the option. This means without restoring your saved backup. This should be used a last resort since you will have to manually reinstall your apps and your contacts/media.
