When you use your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, its screen is frozen, app can not be open. What should we do?
The first step when troubleshooting any sort of electronic device is to restart it. Restarting, or performing a “soft” reset of an iOS device often fixes a keyboard that’s decided to stop working, a camera that won’t open and myriad other bugs and hiccups.
If you find yourself with an unresponsive iPhone 7 and attempt to restart it using the traditional method of holding in the wake and home buttons at the same time, you’re in for a surprise.
Apple has made some rather big changes to iPhone 7. Lack of a headphone jack aside, the new iPhone 7 comes with a force sensitive home button that uses Apple’s own “taptic engine”.
Seeing as the home button for the iPhone 7 is software based, iOS will be able to detect if the home button malfunctions. Should it malfunction, a dialog box will open automatically , informing the user that the home button on their phone may require servicing.
Besides the warning, iOS will also load an alternative onscreen home button for temporary use, allowing the user to use the phone as normal.
While previously, users can force reset their iPhones by holding down on the iPhone’s power button and the home button simultaneously for 10 seconds, for iPhone 7 and 7 plus, try this instead:
1.Press and Hold the Down Volume Button and Power Button to Initiate Force Restart
The Power button is located on the right side of the iPhone 7 device looking straight on to the glass face.
The Volume Down button is located on the left side of the iPhone 7 if you’re looking at the glass screen face.
All you need to do is hold both Volume Down and Power concurrently to start the force restart process on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.
2.Hold down both buttons until the screen turns off. After a few seconds, the screen would come on, displaying the Apple Logo.
Continue holding down both the Volume Down and Power buttons on iPhone 7 until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen.
Once the Apple logo appears on the display you can stop holding the buttons, the iPhone 7 has successfully been restarted.
The key thing to remember is that with restarting iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (and likely restarting future iPad and iPhone models too, which are sure to do away with the traditional home button…) is that rather than holding the Home button, which is no longer clickable, you hold down the Volume Down button instead, which remains clickable. The power button usage remains the same.
So, dont worry! If you want you restart your iphone 7 or 7plus, just according above steps. Any other iphone problems just share with us. Let’s solve together!
