iPhone XR Keeps Freezing

Time Needed : 12 minutes

Based on our experience, you don’t need to do some complicated procedures to fix this kind of problem. Here’s what you need to do: 

  1. Perform the Forced restart

    Perhaps the freezes are due to a minor firmware issue or even a glitch. We need to rule out this possibility first by doing the forced restart. 

    1. So quickly press and release the Volume Up button, and then the volume down button. 
    2. Immediately after that, press and hold the Power key for 10 seconds. This will force the phone to shut down and turn back on. 
    3. When the Apple logo shows, release the power key and wait until your iPhone finishes the reboot. 

    Once the restart is finished, try to see if the freezes are gone.

  2. Reset all settings

    After doing the first solution and your iPhone still keeps freezing, then try to reset all the settings to make sure that the problem isn’t with just some settings.

    2. Find and tap General. 
    3. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen, and then touch Reset. 
    4. Touch Reset All Settings.
