It is common for iPhones to occasionally act up. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to potentially fix these problems. If your iPhone is not turning on or malfunctioning in some other way, here are some quick fixes you can try to get your iPhone back to normal again:
Restart your iPhone
If you are having a problem with your iPhone, a good place to start is to simply restart your phone. It may seem like an obvious solution, but mistakes happen; it is best to double check that your phone is actually on if it isn’t working. Press the button on the top right corner of your iPhone for a few seconds. If it still doesn’t turn on, try pressing that button as the same time as the home button for at least ten seconds.
Use DFU mode
You may find that your iPhone gets to the Apple logo, then restarts over and over again. The issue here is with the booting system. This issue often arises after an OS update. Fortunately, this common issue has an easy solution. To stop this problem, put your phone in Device Firmware Update, or DFU, mode.
To put your phone in DFU mode, connect your iPhone to your computer. Hold the power button and home button down at the same time for ten seconds. Do not hold it for longer than ten seconds, or it will go into recovery mode. After ten seconds, let go of the power button and keep holding the home button. The Apple logo will appear. Hold the home button until recovery warnings begin to pop up. You can tell your phone is in DFU mode as opposed to recovery mode because the screen will be black. In recovery mode, it will show an iTunes icon.
Check the proximity sensor
Your phone may also not be working because the proximity sensor, which locks your phone when it is near your phone, could be broken. Generally, pressing the home and start button at the same time to restart your phone works to fix this issue.
