Turn iPhone Or iPad Off And On Again
Often the simple restart of the device can be solved for several problems, including that of the continuous restart. And then, the first piece of advice that is as trivial as it is useful, is to turn off the iPhone or iPad and then turn it back on. If you are lucky the continuous reboot problem will be just a bad memory, if not, keep reading this article until the end.
In case you have failed to fix it as above then you may need to update your device. If the Settings app icon has a red badge with the number 1, then a system update is available. Even if there are no notifications, the advice is to open Settings, General, and check for firmware updates. If a new version is available, the advice is to download it and update your iPhone or iPad.
Updating through this procedure is as simple as it is safe: just follow the instructions on the screen, make a few taps, to complete the installation process correctly and in a few minutes. After a firmware update, the phone or tablet will restart automatically; if it is slow in the first few minutes of use, don’t worry, it’s normal. The new operating system takes a few minutes, or even hours, before optimizing the stability and speed of the terminal.
The cause of frequent iPhone restart could be some malicious or incompatible application. In this case, it will be sufficient to uninstall the app on duty to restore the correct functioning of the iPhone and iPad. There are several ways to find out if an app is causing your device to restart frequently. The first method is common sense: if you have just installed an app from the App Store, and the device starts restarting, then that app will be the culprit.
Furthermore, by going to Settings, Privacy, Data Analysis, you will be able to see a system log. It is normal to find many strings in this window, but if the same app is listed several times, perhaps combined with error messages, then you have found the culprit. Uninstalling an app is simple: just hold it down to see an “x” appear, clicking on which it will uninstall.
If the above has not solved your problem yet, then a settings reset may be useful. Warning, we are not talking about a factory data reset, but simply a system setting reset.
To do this, go to Settings, General, and click on Reset: from here select “Reset Settings”. This way no applications will be deleted, nor will any saved data be lost. The only downside is that you’ll have to re-enter your Wifi passwords, and little else.
