When it comes to iOS devices, there are various chronic issues that have been plaguing Apple devices for the longest time. One such issue is when the iPhone or iPad reboots for no particular reason and it occurs frequently. Having an iPhone or iPad that’s stuck in random boot loops can be quite jarring. Unfortunately, it seems that even the latest iPhones are affected with random reboots as well. Does your iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus reboot randomly? Here are some fixes that you might want to try.
Do some spring cleaning on the iPhone
It’s quite possible the reason that your iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus is randomly rebooting is due to unnecessary junk. We’re talking about junk messages, URLs, browser caches and cookies, bookmarks and the like. Remove all these unnecessary files and see if your iPhone stops rebooting (you’re cleaning up precious space as well).
Remove unused apps
While you’re at it, why not remove all the apps that you are not using anymore? Uninstalling apps on your iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus will not only help recover space but it can make the device faster as well. Having tons of apps installed might be the cause of the random reboots.
Clear history and website data
This one’s quite easy. Just navigate to Settings > Tap Safari > Tap Clear History and Website Data > then tap Clear to confirm.
Uninstall jailbreak tweaks
After jailbreaking your iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus, you might have gotten tad a bit too excited and installed a plethora of jailbreak tweaks. Unfortunately, some tweaks don’t play well with each other and might be the primary culprit as to why your device is rebooting randomly. So uninstall the tweaks that you don’t fancy anymore or those that are hardly used. To uninstall tweaks in Cydia:
- Launch Cydia and tap Installed
- Select the tweak that you wish to uninstall and tap Modify at the top-right corner.
- Tap Remove
Reset the iPhone
If your iPhone 6 / iPhone 6 Plus reboot randomly, a quick factory reset might just be the solution. Many have reported that their reboot problems were fixed after resetting their device. To do a factory reset, go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings > tap Reset to confirm.
Restore the iPhone
This is basically you going ‘nuclear’ and should only be used if all the above solutions have failed to fix the reboot problem on your iPhone. Restoring the iPhone can be rather tedious, so this is best used as a last resort. Before you restore, make sure that you perform a quick backup of your device before you restore.
And that’s pretty much it! Hopefully, these solutions will finally stop your iPhone from doing random reboots. If you have other solutions, then feel free to share in the comments.
