Up till last night my iPhone was working totally fine. I never have dropped it nor has anything physical happened to it. I think I may have a software problem but: the home button is not working at all, and the voice control is starting on its own randomly. This started out of the blue last night. This morning, suddenly my home button was working again, for all of 5 minutes, before it went back to not working, and voice control going off on its own again. Oh, and it doesn't turn off at all! Each time I turn the phone off, it will immediately turn itself on again.
It's as if my phone is possessed!
I've tried resetting it already, and also updated to the iatest iOS. Not helping. I tried the trick to go to a native app, hold the wake/sleep button and exit the app, not working.
This is very very odd and I suspect it's a software issue, almost as if there's a virus on my phone.
Anyone habe suggestions?
To my knowledge voice control is activated by holding down the home button. Is your home button perhaps getting stuck in the down position? Did you spill anything on your phone? Do you use a case that might be depressing your home button?
That's what I thought, but no I didn't spill anything on my phone and I've never used a case that covered the front/the home button.
This has really happened out of the blue.
I am also thinking the home button is maybe stuck in the down position, which is why voice control goes off and I cannot turn off the phone at all. But it feels/looks totally fine.
Have it looked at by your local apple store.
Ya I will go today to the Apple Store.
Just wondering if anyone else has ever had a similar problem?
mine is doing the EXACT SAME THING TO A T!!! including the turning itself back on and siri randomly starting herself!!!
