iPhone XR not responsive

Rhyn
 Share

My girlfriends iPhone XR stopped working on her earlier tonight. The screen froze and the buttons were not responsive. Eventually the phone screen went to black and will only turn on when freshly connected to a charger. Siri works but the touchscreen still doesn't work and the buttons aren't working. There isn't any water damage and it wasn't dropped before it stopped working. Any ideas on how to fix this? Apparently a lot of her apps were force shutting down today.

Plug it into a PC, download iTunes and restore it.

You think there is any other option besides this? I don't mind but she would rather not

Assuming she has been keeping regular iCloud backups, the only thing that's going to be lost is an hour or two. There's no magic switch to enable or disable that will fix the issue in software.

Yea I figured. That's what I told her when it happened but she hasn't kept regular backups so we're just gonna hope it can do a manual backup.  Thank you for your help!

Gonna be frank, its mega irresponsible to manually disable automatic iCloud backups....

I know I've told her before she needs to keep things backed up regularly but she hasn't listened.

Just tried the restore option and it won't even connect to a computer now.  If I could virtual ironic dab I would but this is a boned situation.  Phenomenal

Sounds pretty phooked. Are you sure it wasn't dropped or damaged? Sounds like a trip to a repair shop.

Try entering DFU mode and then connect it to the computer.

Hi

 

Most of iPhone X series users experienced this issue just minutes after unboxing and some after a couple of weeks usage. I do not know the reason for such an effect but I'd like to give you advice on some of the techniques you could implement to see whether things change.

  1. Perform a force restart.
  2. Make sure to turn on the Wi-Fi or cellular connectivity. This is to ensure that apps running in the background have network connectivity. An error on this front won't be mentioned by Apple so make sure to do it. This particular solutions worked fine for my friend once.
  3. Did you check for any software update?
  4. Try enabling or disabling Haptic Touch to know how things perform.
  5. Remove scratch protector.
  6. Run it on Recovery mode.
