How to Restart Your iPhone When It Freezes
Instead of throwing it against the nearest wall
You’re minding your own business when a killer photo op appears right in front of you: It’s the cutest puppy you’ve ever seen. You quickly go back to the home screen, fiddle with all those folders you organized your apps into, try to open up your camera, and then…nothing. Just a frozen screen. Here, an easy way to combat the frustrating phenom.
What you do: Hold the home button (that circle one in the bottom middle of your phone) and the power button at the same time for about three seconds. The iPhone's screen will go dark and then begin to restart.
Noooo, the adorable golden retriever that was nuzzling up against you is already gone. But hey, pictures to take, phone calls to make. Off you go.
