So you are looking to find out How to fix a frozen iPhone? Has your iPhone stopped working? Is the iPhone totally frozen? Is the iPhone unresponsive? If you answered yes, then keep reading.
Have you dropped your phone in water or has the iPhone got very wet recently? If you answered yes, then this solution probably won’t fix an unresponsive iPhone. I would suggest not trying to turn a wet iPhone on and you should get professional assistance with this.
How to Fix a frozen iPhone or a Frozen Safari App
I was asked once how to fix a frozen iPhone which had a Frozen Safari app (Apples Internet Browser). This can also fix a Frozen iPhone in some situations like an app which is unresponsive.
The problem was that Safari on the iPhone would not accept any touches to the address bar, search bar or bookmarks – basically, the Safari interface on the iPhone was frozen or simply it is a Frozen iPhone.
The solution to fix this frozen iPhone or frozen safari app is fairly easy, but not everyone knows it. To fix and unfreeze the iPhone Safari App, do as follows;
– Load the Safari App on the iPod Touch / iPhone … if the whole phone is just unresponsive read the iPhone Reset step below
– when Safari has loaded, press and hold the home button (the circular button in the middle of the iPod) until Safari quits
– your iPhone / iPod Touch should return to the home screen.
How to Reset an iPhone
If this does not work you can try to do an iPhone reset. The iPhone reset is done by pressing and holding the home button and the power on/off button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo and then release – while ignoring the “slide to turn off prompt” when doing this.
It’s probably useful to clear your cache and cookies when this has resolved; this can be done by Going to Settings > Safari and select Clear History, Clear Cookies, and Clear Cache.
You can also ensure no further issues occur by turning off and re-powering the iPod/iPhone once finished this.
Hopefully, this should solve any problems if you have an iPod Touch or iPhone with a Safari App which is Frozen or if you have a frozen iPhone, hopefully, you are now back up and running. If this fix for the frozen iPhone has worked for you then please leave a comment below.
If you are very unfortunate and your iPod / iPhone won’t start at all, you may need to do a full reset of your iPhone!
