My iPhone 5 keeps freezing and my screen remains black for a period of time.
Hi guys!I have a some problems with my iphone 5,it keeps freezing from 3 to 3 seconds and it doesn`t stop .I bought the phone in December and it`s the first time i am having this problem with an iPhone.I restored it ,changed the software and still no change.In addition he is also restarting occasionally ,on the screen appearing 9 lines or the screen is divided in parts and then it dies and restarts after 5 seconds.Please help!
My iPhone 4S was overheating a week or so ago, I was holding it and it got awfully hot so I put it down and left it for a few hours.A day ago, it turned itself off out of nowhere, I turned it back on and when I went to use it, it would keep turning off and on and freezing,Finally today it wont turn on, it gets to the start up part (black with white apple logo) and freezes and wont get any further. Help?
I have had my iphone for three months now and dropped it twice minorly cracking the screen but it still worked perfectly well. In the past week however it has been freezing completely anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute. Not even the home button will work nor the screen or power button. But after the allotted time has passed all the actions would happen at once. What can I do to fix this?
My iPhone 5 is unlocked so it can be used with any service provider. It's still under warranty but keeps freezing on me and the home button doesn't work sometimes. If apple replaces it for me in store will I get an unlocked iPhone back?
How can i fix my camera that keeps freezinf and turning black or purple? I have already tried reset multiple times and it didnt work.
I have had my iPhone 4S for barely ten months. In the past, I have had small problems that would either fix themselves or just stop occurring, such as freezing issues. But recently my phone was drained to a 1% and after realizing this I quickly plugged it into a car charger. About 15 minutes later, I noticed it had switched to an 100% battery charge. I blew it off and the next time I glanced at my phone it was back to 1%, so I turned it off thinking it would reset it and I would leave it to charge. I came back to the phone maybe 30 minutes later to power it up and it displayed the red sliver of battery with a lightning bolt underneath it. It stayed like this for a good while and eventually came on. Since then it has been stuck on this 1% battery charge. One last thing I noticed was that the bolt inside of the battery on the top right hand corner sometimes shows a plug, saying its fully charged. I'd rather not turn it off because I'm not sure it will come back on. What do you guys suggest I do?
I've had my iPhone 5 for 4 months now,stil under apple waranty,the issue I'm haveing is my pages keep freezing when I swipe the screen and the. The scree. Goes black this has been going on now for four weeks is there anything that ape can do to resolve this issue
I cracked my Iphone 5 screen a couple months ago and just recently the lock button has stopped working. But I heard Apple will most likely replace your phone if is freezing like crazy. I went into the Apple store way before I cracked my screen and complained about my Iphone 5 freezing. They told me to restart it and all that & I did, and it still freezes.
My wifi option has been grayed out for several weeks now, Apple has even replaced my phone. I've tried all the tricks from resetting network settings, heating method, and apparently there is a freezing method as well. Apple is wanting to replace it, but it will happen again. I hate how Apple ignores issues like this, since I've seen reports about it as early as April, but I'm sure has happened before then. I'm still under warranty, and lately I've been trying to downgrade to the iOS 6.1.2 since I didn't have the issue at that point, but that's not allowed by Apple and I can't do it through jailbreak since I didn't save SHSH blobs from that previous software. At this point, I'm at a loss, I don't see how they don't realize that it's a big issue for people. What I wish would happen is just for them to re-release 6.1.2 and just label it as 6.1.4 or something as a temporary fix. Hopefully another discussion about this issue will prompt Apple into working faster on a fix, or at least acknowledge it and let people that have been affected know that a fix is coming very soon.
From apps closing on their own, to apps having to be pressed twice to open, to the phones freezing. In recent months I feel that the apple software has been terrible. Why has this been happening?
When messages app is used, phone frequently freezes and the same thing happens when I open other applications on the phone. Any suggestions to fix this problem without resetting the whole entire phone?
Went to apple store last week with a cracked screen on my 4S. It was out-of-warranty so they provided me with a refurb unit. Did a restore on the refurbed unit from icloud (running ios 6.1.3) and ever since then I've been having problems. The phone feels like it is overheating, the 3G only works intermittently, apps keep crashing and freezing, and the phone turns itself off at random intervals. I read online about the potential issues with exchange calendars, so I've turned off any calendars on my phone. Other than that, does anyone know how I can fix this issue? Is it hardware related, or is there something else I can do to improve performance? Thanks in advanceDan
My phone keeps freezing in every app and then jumps out of the app. What should I do? Even typing this is taking forever.
I think we have a problem about ios 6.1.3Please inform me about iphone freezing. Because it is freezing all time.I hope Apple could solve that problem as soos as possible.
Hello! I have had issues with my iPhone 4S since the day I got it. I have been to the apple store more times than I can count and every time it's some stupid excuse or half assed attempt to fix my phone. Well now I am out of warranty and they told me there is nothing they can do. I have all kinds of problems, from battery issues to apps not working to the screen freezing on me, etc. Every time I go they tell me it's an issue with the software and reset my phone to factory settings. I set up the phone as new and then bring over a small amount of pics, music files and apps. I never restore from back up. The most current issue is the phone drains to 1% battery and when I plug it in to charge, it acknowledges the charger but won't charge. The phone then dies and I am unable to turn it on for at least 48 hours. This has happened twice now. Apple ran diagnostics and said everything was fine and it was probably a corrupt file. We again reset it to factory settings and I was instructed to not bring over any files. I then used the phone for one day and it happened again. I also have not been able to back up to iCloud since I got the phone. The backup always fails. I am desperate at this point and apple will not replace the phone because it is out of warranty. I never had issues backing up to iCloud or with my files on my iPhone 4. My husband plugs his phone into the same computer and has no issues with a corrupt file. Any thoughts or suggestions on what I should do?
Recently my iphone 5 started freezing up when left charging overnight. I must hold home and power button for ten seconds to wake up. What would cause this?
Siri keeps freezing when I try to set reminders. Once it freezes, I have to do a hard restart to clear it out. It freezes the entire phone. I can ask for siri to find a location and it works perfect. Any one else having this issue and how to fix it?
My iphone 5 which i got december is freezing, randomly turn off, drop calls, sometimes buttons not responding, and rattel sound when i shake it (have not droped or been banly treated). I have updated the ios many times and resore aswell (im now runing version 6.1.3) and the problem is still there. I would take it to a apple store but I live far off any, I was wondering if i could send it to a store to get checked and fixed?All response will be greatly appreciated
My phone sometimes does not alert me when I get messages from certain people, and is constantly asking me to put in my password for my apple ID. I have only done it once, but the prompt immediately popped up again, and is really just a major nusaince. I don't know what is going on with my phone because it also keeps freezing and won't even lock. It's just so frustrating at times.
so it basically says it all up in the title, but my phone keeps freezing and whenever i open apps they freeze and then crash!i dont know if i should get a new phone like get it replaced or if i shoud reset it, or just try and get it fixed, someone help!!thanks! also, whether im connected to wifi or not, my phone is always so slow!! i dont have like any music or photos on it cause i thought that would make it work and it hasnt! i really dont wanna have to reset it!please help!!
Since I upgraded my phone to ios 6.1.2, the phone becomes slow on opening applications. Another issue is whenever the signal is searching, the phone is freezing for a moment until the signal becomes stable. This was not an issue on ios 5.1.1. This is bad..
phone was freezing during iOS update, my phone restarted about 30 times while showing various psychodelic patterns and colors lost all my data when phone was in recovery mode- I need some help
I have an iPhone 4s.. I my phone started freezing when I picked a phone call then shutdown. Now I didn't update my latest iOS... Now my phone is restarting repeatedly.... - green screen with lines-plaid looking screen-finger print looking screen-blue screen-orange screen-vertical blue, gray, black (vertical lines)
Okay guys, Here is my issue with some backstory; Bought a black 64gb iPhone 5 new as soon as they first came out.No issue. I upgrade my iOS as soon as updates come out, and this issue has been present since I upgraded to iOS 6.1.And has not been fixed since then. I sent a feedback form to apple before 6.1.2 was released, now even at 6.1.3 the issue has not been fixed. It's difficult to describe, and very hard to find anyone else with the same issue online, as the keywords used are similar to many other issues. Basically, when my phone is locked and the screen is off, I press a button, no response, this can be any button, even trying to power down the unit, but nothing happens. I can plug in the charger, no sound, no vibration, but 30-60 seconds later, the screen will come on, the phone will vibrate, and it will make a sound. Everything is back to normal. I've tried restoring, but it doesn't fix the problem, I would think it's a software issue as it only became an issue after I upgraded to iOS 6.1. This isn't an isolated incident as my girlfriend who I also set up with a black 16gb iPhone 5 is also having the exact same issue. There doesn't appear to be any sort of trigger that causes it, it can happen once a day, or once every few days, or 10 times in 2 hours! It's not a huge issue I know, but it has led to missing calls, and even missing bids on eBay etc. I'm just here to see if anyone else is experiencing this issue, and to see if there's a proper way to describe this... freezing? unresponiveness? And perhaps this might help other people with the same issue if we find a way to resolve it. Thanks for reading!
Why is my iphone 4s freezing and kicking me out of apps?
i have no idea why but after i updated to 6.1.3 over wifi last night everything was fine until i let the phone lose its charge and tried to charge it. it started charging fine at first but now it won't come on sometime. at one point it shut down after 30 seconds of working fine and then freezing... the screen turned white and froze one time before blacking out. it's on right now but only after again going black and respond-free for about 2 minutes. i made one phone call and went back to the music app then it went black again. ***
My iPhone 5 is freezing when connected to the charger. This is not happinning if it is connected to the computer USB. How to solve this problem?
Seriously trying to keep calm over the issues I'm having with the new iphone 5 !! I am currently on my 4th iPhone 5 in less than 5 months and awaiting my 5th which I'm seriously considering putting straight on eBay!! The 1st phone I had the on off button packed in! The second iphone I had the battery life lasted me 4 hrs! The 3rd phone kept freezing and turning off! The 4th has decided to come up with the no service logo and yes I have tried everything under the sun to fix this but was told it was an issue with the phones software!! For the love of god what is going on with these phones?? I've loved apple products and own a few devises but seriously had enough now looks like you'll be losing a customer in the next few days I'm afraid ! :(
Does anyone know how to revert back to IOS update 6.0.1/6.0.2 from 6.1.? My 4s has lost wifi and Bluetooth connectivity, tried all recommended actions and no luck, bar using a hairdryer or freezing as some have tried. Not happy. Have recommended everyone I know not to do update yet. Thanks for your input.
Hey guys just thought I would highlight this as I should think many people have brought a new iPhone 5 in preparation for the release of the 4g network next year. Sadly I have to report that it is looking highly unlikely that you will be able to use you iPhone 5 on the O2 and Vodaphone network when they eventually buy the licence and launch their network. The reason quite simply the only frequencies which the iPhone 5 supports are not going to be available for the time being here in the Uk. EE is the only supported network in the UK and they have purchased the licences for the only frequencies in the uk which the iPhone 5 supports. O2 and the apple store both kept this quiet when I upgraded to my iphone 5, even when I made it clear to the apple store assistant I intended to use it on 4g when it's eventually released. "Yes it will work" I was told. The sales guy in the O2 store also told me the same. I've returned my iPhone 5 mainly because of bad battery problems however I also didn't want to be stuck with a 4g phone where I can't use 4g when it's released. I first read about this on the BBC website but this link explains the crocks of the problem... http://thenextweb.com/apple/2012/09/12/apples-iphone-5-will-contain-limited-uk-4 g-lte-support-freezing-vodafone-o2/ Has anyone else been incorrectly advised and mis-sold? I'm now holding out to give EE a try, and, of course when the iPhone battery drain problem has been resolved.
I have noticed that when I am out in the cold (below freezing) for long periods of time, my battery drains extremely fast even when I am not using the phone. When the battery pecentage drops below 10, phone shuts down and doesn't turn on until it is warmed up again. And when it is on it is displaying much higher battery percentage again (for example around 30-40%). I know the batteries don't last as long in the cold weather, but this seems a bit extreme? I had a 3gs for 3 years before this and never had similar problems. Sure the battery would drain slightly quicker when I was in the cold, but nothing like this. Is this normal with this phone or is there a problem with mine? PS: I don't think aluminum back helps with the cold weather as it always feels like ice cold after a while even if the phone is in my pocket...
After i update my iphone 4s to iOS6. my NBA2k12 is always freezing. is there any patch to fix this? i already try restarting my phone by pressing home key and sleep mode key at the same time for 10seconds until the apple logo appear. but still the app is not working.(keeps on freezing)
Recently my phone started freezing, then it will occasionally crash. I am unable to connect it to my wifi and it will drop calls. I was wondering if I restore it will I oose all my phone numbers I have stored or do they get backed up to itunes?
hey, I was wondering if this was a common issue with the iphone 5 back camera. My front camera works but when I try to use the back facing camera, it freezes before I can take a picture and I can't do anything, sometimes a magenta bar covers half the screen. Tried restarting and reseting it, nothing works. Any idea if this can be fixed with the next update, or this is a physical defect of the phone?
I have an iPhone 5 16 GB and its been freezing alot and closes out of safari and my games often and my maps freezes alot, and also i just got the notifaction to update my phone to 6.02 i think it is until yesterday. I'm still under my 90 warranty with apple. would they give me new one thats not glitchy if i brought it to the genius bar?
Hi everyone, I have had my iPhone 5 pretty much since the day it was launched, with no problems apart from the slow wifi (fixed with the latest OS). However, a few weeks ago I started to experience some small green and pink horizontal lines on the screen. I thought it may be some of the apps I'd downloaded but it continued to happen even whilst using the camera, Safari etc. After showing the little lines it would then freeze, the screen would then just completely turn into vertical bars and then it would re-boot itself. I tried doing a factory reset, hard resetting, deleting all my apps, charging, updating software... All the typical fixes I could think of and the problem still persisted. So I finally decided to send the phone back to Apple by post (I don't have an Apple shop anywhere near). They kept the phone for maybe a few hours, sent an email saying there were no problems with it and sent it back to me! I have no idea what else I can do, is anyone else having this problem or a similar one? Thanks in advance!
Ever since I have upgraded my iPhone 4S I have had NOTHING but problem after problem after problem. - My phone turns on and off by itself- The backlight dims and brightens when it feels- My messages say (1) at least 4 seconds before any name ever shows up- The maps barely work (although I know this is a problem Apple has addressed already) The biggest issue I'm having is my phone freezing AT LEAST half the time, if not more, that I try to use the phone. Either the whole entire screen freezes and I can't touch anything, lock or unlock the phone, so basically I just have to sit there and wait for it to fix itself because I cannot even get the phone to power down. If it isn't the whole entire phone freezing it's the keyboard. The left and right side will just randomly stop working mid text and the other thing I can use are keys in the middle and the space bar if I'm lucky - at which point I have to lock and unlock the phone to regain use of the keyboard (that is IF the phone doesn't freeze during that part leaving me unable to lock and unlock the phone). I also have one of those $50 cases that are "indestructible" so I know it's not a user issue with me dropping it etc. Is anyone else having these problems? I'm VERY disappointed in this new IOS 6 software, I'd love to uninstall it but from reading past questions I don't believe that is an option with Apple products. I just want to see if there's any way to fix these errors before taking the time to completely erase and reset my iPhone (especially if I do all that and I still have the same problems) THANK YOU for any help
I got my first ever iPhone on 9/21/12. Immediately, when I opened the package, I noticed a scratch in the aluminum side. I read a lot of posts on this forum about scratches, but I decided I would let it go since my scratch wasn't that big. Two days later, I realized that the battery life was terrible and only lasts me about a day and a half before I have to recharge again. I also noticed that whenever I had to type in my password for the App Store to buy an app, the screen would flicker on the second row of keys on the keyboard when I switched to the numbers (9/23). That problem seems to have disappeared for now ever since I updated the software. The voicemail doesn't seem to work unless I turn the cellular data off (I think that's just because I don't know how it works) and I receive voicemails LATE. Lately, this month, I have noticed that my iPhone 5 screen freezes midway whenever I try to swipe to the next pages. It also freezes every half second when I am trying to type anything. The "send" button also doesn't respond to me when I press it. The home screen button is the only thing that I can press to unfreeze everything, but it's getting really frustrating to do that every other second. Since two days ago, whenever I am repeatedly trying to press an app or swipe, random apps start to open up even though my finger is no where near it. Lately, it has also been unresponsive to any touch (like sliding to unlock), but I wonder if it's because my hands are too cold... Just a few minutes ago, my iPhone was acting possessed and started opening up a text conversation and switching to another text BY ITSELF. I wasn't even touching it!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What can I do? Is it too late to bring it to the Apple Store to get a new one? It's been two months since I opened it and I have never dropped it and I kept the original screen protectors on it for a month until my actual screen protectors arrived.
My phone keeps freezing while using Facebook and pandora! I have tried deleting it and downloading it again multiple times and after usage it happens again! Very frustrating!
ive had my iphone 4s for just over a year now. and all of sudden after i updated it to the new iOS6 it started to slow down and freeze. what could be he cause of this
Im not sure whether this has anything to do with upgrading to IOS6, but my phone has got an ever growing list of problems at the moment that started before the upgrade.....My battery will only last about 5 hours on standby and within those 5 hours i get two texts (this is while im at work, so not using the phone at all)..Just recenty its been refusing to charge, im not sure how long an iphone takes to get to 100% but most of the time it takes nearly 2-3 hours, i have noticed it only goes up a couple of percent in the first half an hour (pretty annoying if you ask me)My touchscreen doesn't really seem to be aligned properly, i could touch one app and the one above it or next to it will open instead.... this doesn't happen all the time but i did end up opening a bunch of apps i didn't want while trying to get the one i wanted, and i have tiny hands so im not touching the others by accident.freezing up all the time, and the other say i went to unlock it and it came up with the apple screen, like i had turned it on, it refused to remove from that screen untill i reset it. i have noticed sometimes the screen will do things on its own, like try to press my password in..... maybe ive got a ghost playing around with me =/. Unfortunatly Vodaphone wont let me upgrade for another year.... and at the end of this month will be a year since i had it, and i cant afford to buy a new phone. Im a little bit stummped as to what to do as my nearest apple store is 20 miles away and as i don't drive not the easiest to get to, anyone have any suggestions? (Sorry for the extreamly long essay, my phones got to the point where i want to chuck it across a field and walk away)
I just got my phone a couple days ago! My screen is freezing & when it unfreezes it will let me slide the bar to the side to open it but that screen freezes also.. help!
I just purchased my second iPhone 5, the first one had freezing problems, and also the messaging problem this one has. This current iPhone 5 has iMessaged checked and has my phone number +1 (954) *** - **** next to it. Looks like it should all work right? Wrong. Basically, I can message everyone else but one contact with the iMessages. For now we can call them "p1". I recently upgraded from and android Epic 4g, to this iPhone 5. Everyone else I message who has an iphone, will work properly and instantly. However, with p1, my messages will send as an iMessage and show as blue, but won't be "Delivered" and on the computer iMessages it says it was delievered. Well, this person can send me an iMessage back and I won't recieve it on the phone or the computer. Something is definately acting up here, and I am not quite sure.
My iphone 4s kept freezing so I shut it down and now it won't restart. What is wrong or what should I do
I just bought my iPhone 5 about a week ago and my back facing camera freezes occasionally covering the screen with this magenta bar
i got my iphone the day it came out and it has been lagging and even freezing on me. when i scroll through my pages and sometimes exit an app it slows down and even stops working sometimes. i also have a problem with my group messages. i get my notifications 30 seconds after the message comes in. its very annoying because ill be in my imessage app and the notification pops up after i have already responded to the message. any help or tips please? i dont have too many apps and i have around 6 GB of space left so i dont have too much stuff. and i dont have apps running in the backgroup when this stuff happens. im on AT&T if that helps. anything i can do please help.
I have my new IPhone. Since day one I have the problem with freezing screen. I have to switch the screen off and on again and then it works again. Pretty annoying, especially when you are in the middle of writing something. Not sure how to present this problem e.g. at a shop, as it of course woks fine when you want it to freeze. I hope this is just a bug that will get fixed with the next update, or am I the only one with this problem? In that case I would have to contact apple to get a new phone. Thanks
I have the iPhone 4, recently installed ios6 now my phone constantly turns itself off, keeps freezing and then 2 or 3 times in the space of 24hrs it has to be restored to factory settings. This has gone on for over a week.
