Apple iPhone is not perfect as it has its own issues ranging from battery drain to app crashes. We have heard a lot of complaints from iPhone owners that their iPhone keeps restarting or rebooting randomly. If you happen to sit in the group, we are here to help.
In this guide, we will go through the steps on how to fix iPhone random rebooting issue. Before we begin, make sure you now have a modern version of iOS on your iPhone. You can head to Settings > General > Software Update and update your device.
How to fix random rebooting issue on your iPhone
Disable Background App Refresh and Location Services
App Refresh is a nice addition to iOS as it allows iPhone and iPad apps to check for updates and perform other tasks even when they are not actively running. However, with too many apps running in the background, your iPhone may not work as intended.
To turn off Background App Refresh on your iPhone, head to Settings > General > Background App Refresh and turn off the switch. You can also turn off App Refresh for individual apps you don’t want to run in the background.
When it comes to Location Services, it’s one of the biggest power-sucking apps. To turn it off, head to Settings > Privacy > Location Services and switch off the switch for Location Services.
Reset your iPhone to factory settings
If the above-mentioned solutions fails to work for you, the best shot now is to reset your device to factory settings. Following this method, all the login details and Wi-Fi passwords will be removed, with your precious data remaining the same.
To reset your device, head to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. Once you are done, you now can set up the whole thing again.
Remove unused apps
There are a lot of apps that can be ignored on your iPhone. Luckily, iOS 11 introduces an exciting feature called Offload Unused Apps to give you a helping hand. As the name implies, the feature automatically offloads unused apps to free up some space on your device.
To enable Offload Unused Apps, head to Settings > General >iPhone Storage, then select the app you wish to offload and hit Offload App to confirm.
Update your apps
An outdate version may cause your app to crash out or freeze. Therefore, we recommend you update your apps to get bug and error fixes. To update an app on your iPhone, open the App Store from your home screen and then select the Update tab. Once you are in, update all the apps.
Restore your iPhone from backup
If none of the above solutions works for you, the last hope for success is restore your device from a backup. Before moving ahead, make sure you have already created a backup using iTunes.
To restore your device from a backup, connect your iPhone to your Mac or Windows PC, and then launch iTunes. After that, hit Restore iPhone and then restore your iPhone from an iTunes backup.
