When our iPhone Reminders Not Working, iPhone alarm not working, Instagram videos not playing or iPhone freezes, it can be one of the most frustrating experiences of our lives. Whether we’re simply browsing the web, getting ready to take a picture, or even if we’re playing a game. Regardless of what we’re doing on our iPhone, it causes an inconvenience to our day, and we don’t enjoy that.
With that in mind, the most well-known and common solutions to your iPhone freezing are completely wiping your iPhone and restoring your data either through iTunes, iCloud, or simply starting from scratch. This process can take a lot of time and can inconvenience you a lot, especially if you need your iPhone to get on with your work. Today we will explain 2 separate methods that you can use to fix your iPhone while it’s frozen.
Note: If you have a hardware problem that is causing the crash, these methods won’t work for you!
How to Fix an iPhone Frozen Without dr.fone
This first method is available to anyone who owns an iPhone which is frozen. To do so, we will be performing a hard reset, resulting in an unfrozen iPhone!
- Step #1 – Take your iPhone and hold both the ‘Home‘ and the ‘Power‘ button together for a minimum of 10 seconds.
- Step #2 – After the Apple icon appears on your screen, you can let go of both the buttons and let the process begin.
- Step #3 – This process shouldn’t take too long. If your home screen appears, this means that the process was successful.
This process is very simple, although if you are hoping to prevent any future freezing, then the next method is what you should use instead.

Preventing Your iPhone from Freezing
Not only is it important to fix your iPhones freezing issue, but it’s important that you know what has been causing it to crash and how you can prevent it from doing so in the future.
Backing up your iPhone. This can be a great solution. The chances are that if your iPhone is suddenly starting to freeze that a software change has been made. If that’s the case, simply restore your iPhone from a backup that you’ve taken and it will revert any software related changes that have been made, and sort out your freezing issue for you. For this reason and many others, it’s important that you back up your iPhone regularly (you can do this through iTunes, iCloud, or Dr.Fone).
Diagnostics & Usage Test. This can be helpful if you’re looking to locate what the freezing is caused by. The test will list all of the applications and services which are currently running on your iPhone. You will be able to find out what is causing the freezing issue by directing yourself to “Latest Crash”, which will display the cause for you to sort out.
Wipe your iPhone. If worst comes to worst and you simply want to be able to use your iPhone, then this is for you. However, this should only be used as an absolute last resort. The path you should take to wipe your iPhone is [ Settings -> General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings ]. This process can take some time depending on a few different factors.
Dr.Fone is a generally handy tool to have for your iPhone and controlling the its data. Not only can you use our program to successfully unfreeze your iPhone, but it is fantastic for many more problems that you may run into. Today we focussed how you are able to optimize the programs use and unfreeze your iPhone, however you are able to use it for many other data management aspects.
These aspects include:
- Backing up your iOS device
- Restoring data to your iOS device
- Backing up your Whatsapp, LINE, Kik, Viber chat Data
- Restoring chat data to your iOS device
- Recover lost or deleted data from iOS device, iTunes Backup or iCloud Backup
- and many many more.
It is arguable that dr.fone for iOS is the same as iTunes, and in a way that argument is right, however, at the same time, it is heavily wrong. Dr.Fone does include the features that iTunes has (such as backing up your iPhone), however, it includes a lot more features than iTunes. You are able to not only use Dr.Fone for your iPhone but for your Android too. This can save you from installing several programs on your computer, and allows you to keep all of your data management tools in a once convenient location!
It’s worth noting that dr.fone can also make connections with other applications such as OneDrive and iCloud, rather than being limited to the data handled by iTunes or your iPhone. One of the many fantastic perks that it has to offer.
