Why Does iPhone Keep Restarting?

Gepubliceerd op 17 september 2022 om 11:37


What causes our iPhone to restart, and what can we do about it? Now move down with us and know more about it.

We rely on our iPhones, and they must always function properly. It would be ideal if there were only one reason why iPhones restarted so frequently, but there is no panacea for this problem.

In this article, I'll explain why iPhones keep restarting and how to fix the restarting iPhone problem.

Why is iPhone Constantly Restarting?

iPhones that keep restarting fall into one of two categories:

  • iPhones That Randomly Restart: You can use your iPhone usually for a short period before it abruptly restarts.
  • iPhone Restart Loop: Your iPhone keeps restarting and is completely unusable. The Apple logo seems and vanishes on the screen repeatedly.

Also, there is a trending issue regarding iPhones encountered while listing songs or on a call with someone using AirPods.

AirPods are connected to the iPhone, but the sound still comes from the phone; why does this happen? You need a small guide on Airpods Connect but no Sound to know more.

The first few steps are impossible to complete if you cannot use the Software on your iPhone.

Let's get started so you can stop exclaiming, "My iPhone keeps restarting!" "to the cat.

1. Back Up Your iPhone

Before we begin troubleshooting, make sure your iPhone is backed up. If necessary, we will restore your iPhone in a later step, and you must have a backup before restoring.

If your iPhone is experiencing hardware issues, this may be your last chance to back up your data. See our other article for help with backing up your iPhone.

Once you've backed up your data, you'll be ready to begin troubleshooting if your iPhone keeps restarting or turning on and off.

2. Update Your iPhone's Software (iOS)


The operating system for your phone is iOS, similar to Windows on a PC or macOS on a Mac. iOS updates are always full of fixes for software bugs and other issues.

A software update may sometimes resolve the problem that is causing your iPhone to restart or enter a restart loop. For software updates, check, go to Settings -> General -> Software Update.

Install any available updates. Connect your iPhone to your computer to update the Software using iTunes or Finder (for PCs and Macs running macOS 10.14 or earlier).

If your iPhone keeps restarting, you should try iTunes or Finder.

3. Whether an App is Causing Your iPhone to Restart

The App Store contains over 1.5 million apps, not all of which are perfect. The Software on your iPhone is safe primarily from malicious apps.

It is extremely rare for an app to cause an iPhone to restart or switch on and off repeatedly.

If you installed an app before your iPhone went into a restart loop, uninstall and see if the problem goes away.

Another place to look for problematic apps is Settings -> Privacy -> Analytics & Improvements -> Analytics Data.

It is common to see multiple entries in this list. Scroll through the list quickly, looking for any apps that appear repeatedly. If you find one, uninstalling it may repair your iPhone.

4. Reset All Settings

Reset All Settings isn't a panacea but can help with software issues.

Navigate to Settings -> General -> Transfer Or Reset iPhone -> Reset -> Done.

To return your iPhone's settings to factory defaults, tap Reset All Settings. There is no loss of any data or app, but you will have to re-enter your Wi-Fi password.

5. Remove Your SIM Card

iPhone restart loops can be caused by problems with your iPhone's wireless carrier connection.

Because your SIM card connects your iPhone to your wireless carrier, removing it is the best way to troubleshoot issues that cause your iPhone to restart.

Don't be concerned: nothing will go wrong if you remove your SIM card. When you plug your iPhone back in, it will immediately reconnect to your carrier.

Apple's support article on removing the SIM card from your iPhone will show you where the SIM card is located on your iPhone.

Use a paper clip to remove the SIM tray from your iPhone. If removing your SIM card resolves the issue, replace it in your iPhone.

If the problem returns after you replace your SIM card, you'll need to restore your iPhone (step 7) or contact your carrier to replace the SIM card.

6. Hard Reset

You should only perform a hard reset on your iPhone if necessary. An iPhone restart loop is a situation where a hard reset is required.

It's similar to unplugging a desktop computer from the wall to turn it off. Hold power and Home buttons simultaneously until your iPhone screen goes blank and the Apple logo reappears.

The buttons you need to press to perform a hard reset on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus are slightly different. Hold down the volume and power buttons simultaneously.

The process of hard resetting an iPhone 8 or later is also different: the volume down button and the side button.

For at least 20 seconds, hold both buttons down, regardless of which iPhone model you have.

When they entered the Apple Store, people were astounded, and I fixed their broken iPhones with a hard reset.

They thought they did a tough reset at home but didn't hold down both buttons long enough. Your SIM card is possibly causing your iPhone to restart been eliminated.

If you removed your iPhone's SIM card in the previous step, now is the time to replace it.

If the problem with your iPhone restarting persists after the hard reset, you'll need to reset your device by following the instructions below.

7. Restore Your iPhone


Getting Your iPhone Back removes a slew of software issues and completely erases and reloads the iPhone's Software (iOS).

When we restore your iPhone, we eliminate the possibility that a software problem is causing your iPhone to restart this is why Apple techs do it so frequently.

To restore your iPhone, you must connect it to a computer. I recommend performing a DFU Restore, a type of restore performed by Apple technicians who can solve more problems than a standard restore.

It's not on Apple's website — read my article to learn how to DFU restore your iPhone.

After completing the restore, you can reload all of your personal information from your iPhone backup in iTunes, Finder, or iCloud. If you still have a problem, return here and continue reading.

8. Check for a Hardware Problem

Hardware issues commonly cause iPhones to get stuck in a restart loop. Remove the case on your iPhone before proceeding.

Examine the charging port on the bottom of your iPhone carefully. Examine the inside for any debris and signs of corrosion.

If something doesn't seem right, take a new toothbrush and gently brush out the charging port.

A short circuit or another issue within the charging port can cause various issues with your iPhone.

9. You May Require to Repair Your iPhone

We've ruled out the possibility that your iPhone is restarting due to a software issue, and we looked for hardware problems on the outside of your iPhone.

If your iPhone has adhered to a restart loop, it will most likely need repair.

If you visit your local Apple Store for help, make an appointment with the Genius Bar so you don't have to wait.
