Some struggle with the iPhone, even though it is an incredibly powerful and reliable piece of technology. I am aware that there have been times when my iPhone has randomly restarted itself for what appears to be no reason. If you’re experiencing this right now, then take a seat, and let’s get to work on fixing it.
There could be several different causes for why your iPhone is randomly restarting itself. The most common reason for this is that an application is consuming too much power or that your memory is too full. To begin, exit any applications that are using an excessive amount of battery life, clean up your device, and then restart it so that any unnecessary files can be removed.
There is a wide variety of potential explanations for why your iPhone is acting in this manner. Regardless of the circumstances, we can work together to find a solution by taking things one step at a time. It won’t be too much longer before your iPhone is back in working order.
Take Down the Bad Apps
The most common cause of unexpected iPhone restarts is the presence of malicious applications on your device. Sometimes malware is present in the app, but more often than not, the problem is that the app uses up too much battery power.
You can delete any new applications that you have installed; however, this isn’t always the most effective method because it could be an older application that you haven’t updated. How to determine which applications are consuming the most battery power will be demonstrated.
It is also not necessary to uninstall the application entirely. There are times when all that is required to resolve this issue is a straightforward upgrade.
Perform a Power Analysis on the Battery.
After turning on your device, navigate to the “Settings” menu via the Home screen. First select “Battery,” then select “Show Activity.” This will show you the various apps and processes that run in the background that consume battery power.
Click the button labeled “Show Detailed Usage.” This will provide a breakdown of the amount of battery power that each app is using. Tap “Battery Usage” instead of the other options because it will display the percentage of battery life that each app consumes on your device.
You have the option of viewing the amount of battery usage over the past 24 hours or 10 days. There are no other views available at this time, but this may change with an operating system upgrade.
Search for applications that consume an excessive amount of battery life. In the case of a calculator, for example, you’ll notice that it consumes 40% of your battery life, indicating that there is a problem.
Putting an End to the Problem
You have two options available to you in this situation. You have the option of updating the app or deleting it entirely.
If you delete the application, the issue will be fixed for good; however, doing so will prevent you from ever using the program again unless you reinstall it. You can accomplish this by touching and holding the app’s icon on your device’s screen.
After a brief period, it will begin to jiggle, and an “X” will show up in one of the corners. To delete the application, select the “X” button. It has been removed from your iPhone at this time.
You can also make changes to it. You can begin your search for the app by going to the App Store. There will be a button for you to click to update the app. If you click this button, the latest version will begin downloading. The majority of the time, this will correct the problem, but there is a chance that it will not.
If the update does not resolve the problem, then the app should be deleted.
Although this issue is more common with older iPhone models, it is still possible for newer models to be affected. If the storage on your iPhone is full, then it can disrupt the operation of your device in a variety of different ways.
You won’t be able to download as many apps or save as many files, and you’ll also notice that the speed of your device will slow down, and the battery will run out of juice more quickly. One more issue that could be occurring is that your device keeps restarting itself.
There are a few solutions available for this problem. Even though the iPhone does not have expandable storage, there are options for saving your files or deleting them entirely.
Delete Unneeded Files
Eliminating files that aren’t necessary is the simplest approach to solving this issue. You likely have a large number of files on your device that you do not require. Every file you remove from your computer frees up a small amount of storage space.
I recommend that you start by looking at the largest files. Search through the file explorer for video files and game apps that you no longer require and remove them from your computer. You can also free up some space on your device by deleting old messages, pictures, and other files.
Continue to do this until you have at least 1GB of free space available on your computer. This should be sufficient to determine whether or not storage is to blame for your device’s restarts.
Storage in the Cloud
Even though iPhones do not have storage that can be expanded, there are still ways to save your files outside of the device. Cloud storage enables you to save the files elsewhere, so that they do not take up any of the storage on your iPhone, but you are still able to access them.
Your device ought to be equipped with iCloud storage already. If you don’t have one, then you should download the iCloud app and then transfer some files over to it. Remove these files from your device because you will be able to access them whenever you require them.
There are a plethora of other cloud storage providers to choose from as well. To prevent the internal storage on your phone from becoming full, you can make use of more than one if necessary.
Obtain the latest version of the operating system
Apple is releasing new iOS versions consistently. While some people dread the thought of updating their device, especially because there may be changes they don’t like, it’s always a good idea to keep your device up to date on all fronts.
If the operating system is not kept up to date, there is a possibility that there will be software and security flaws. Because of these problems, your phone might unexpectedly restart itself. It is possible that bringing the operating system up to date is all that is required to prevent this from occurring.
There are two different ways to update the operating system. Going to the “Software Update” tool is going to be the least difficult and most straightforward method.
Go to the Home screen on your device, then select “Settings” from the menu. Select “General” from the drop-down menu, followed by “Software Update.“
After that, a search will be conducted for an updated iOS version. If there is one available, you will be able to download and install it if it is offered. The problem, however, is that the device requires time to download the operating system, and these files are typically quite large.
If the unpredictable restarts don’t happen all that often, then perhaps this is acceptable. If it’s happening multiple times a day, then there might be something wrong with it.
You have the option to download and install the most recent iOS version manually. You can search for the most recent version of iOS by opening either iTunes or the Mac App Store, depending on the Apple operating system that you are currently using.
Make sure your device is connected, then download the latest iOS version. This allows your computer to take care of the majority of the downloading and will also assist you with the installation process as needed. After everything is finished, you will have the option to update the iOS on the device.
If the issue was caused by an older operating system, this should fix it and restart the computer successfully.
