How To Fix your iPhone when it Freezes

We've all been there: you're checking something on your favorite website, or maybe you're listening to your favorite iTunes playlist, when all of a sudden your iPhone stops working. The screen no longer responds to your touch, and maybe it goes completely black. While such problems are common to all iPhones, there are certain things you can do to prevent and fix annoying interruptions of this kind.

Protect your phone from extreme temperatures.

 Extreme temperatures and temperature shifts are likely to result in malfunctions. Your iPhone might alter its functional behavior to regulate its internal temperature which can result in various glitches, from a reduced battery life to any number of issues. Being aware of this fact can help you improve your phone's responsiveness. Here are a few things to keep in mind Use your iPhone in acceptable temperatures: between 32 and 95 degrees Fahrenheit (or, between 0 and 32 degrees Celsius).
Store your iPhone in temperatures between -4 and 113 degrees Fahrenheit (or, between -20 and 45 degrees Celsius).
Don't leave your phone in a parked car when it's very warm to hot outside.
Don't expose your phone to direct sunlight for an extended period of time.

Check your phone's memory

 Try not to use up every last bit of memory your device has. Leaving your iPhone with a little breathing room can increase your phone's performance
A golden rule  is to leave your phone about 250MB of free memory space. To check how much remaining memory you have, go to the bottom of your iPhone's Summary tab in iTunes.
Try not to overload your iphone with downloads. For example: say you're checking your e-mails on your phone and decide to download 100 messages. This action will most likely cause trouble, and your iPhone may freeze or even crash. Especially if you attempt to open Safari simultaneously.

Back up your iPhone

 If you want the ability to keep your information safe and hold on to a certain amount of free memory space, backing up your phone is crucial because it allows you to remove information from your device. This step is also important before performing an update on your phone, as there's always a chance of things going awry.
Back-up with iCloud. Use iCloud if you want to back up your device wirelessly and automatically, and if you don't frequently connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC. If you're already using iCloud, no further action is needed as it backs up your information automatically. To turn on iCloud:
Tap Settings > iCloud > Backup.
If you're using iphone OS 7 or earlier, tap Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup.
Then, click iCloud Backup to turn it on.
Finally, click on Back Up Now.

Back-up with iTunes

 This is a good option if you frequently use the computer that contains your iTunes back up, or if you simply do not want to use iCloud. You can also use iTunes in conjunction with iCloud for extra safety. To back up with iTunes:
Connect your iPhone to your computer
Choose File > Devices > Back up.

Update your iPhone OS

 Even if you aren't experiencing any problems with your iphone, it's always a good idea to keep its software up-to-date. Updates to your iphone include automatic fixes to resolve any phone issues (for example, a battery that drains too quickly)as well as new features. If your phone does have bugs, this is the ultimate way to resolve and prevent any hitches
Update your iPhone wirelessly. This is probably the simplest way to perform an update. Here's how to do it.
Connect your iPhone to a power source.
Go to Settings > General > Software Update.
Click on Download and Install.
Click on Install.
Update your iPhone using iTunes. If you'd rather use iTunes, here are some easy steps to perform an update.
Connect your phone to your computer.
Once you're in iTunes, select your iPhone.
Go to the Summary pane, and tap Check for Update.
Tap Download and Update. Keep in mind that the back up won't work unless you have enough free memory space.

Fixing your iPhone when it Freezes

Un-freeze the screen. Your phone may suddenly stop sensing your touchscreen instructions while you're using it. Your device might even go completely black, and appear to be turned off. Try the following tips
Press the Home button. This will, in some cases, resolve the issue. You'll be directed back to the home screen and can go back to using your device.
If just tapping the Home button doesn't work, try holding it for approx. 6 seconds. This action works in many cases, and if it does in yours, you'll be shot back to the home screen with everything working properly.
Restart your device. Sometimes, restarting your iPhone is the most effective way to restore it to normal functions.
Press and hold the physical Wake/Sleep button on top of you phone until the red power-off slider appears. Move the slider to power off your phone.
Press and hold Wake/Sleep button again until the Apple logo appears on the screen. It might take a few seconds for your phone to power on completely. Once it's on, you should see the home screen and be able to use your device normally.
Forcefully restart your iPhone. In some cases, your device might be a bit more tangled up. In such cases, a force-restart is the best option
Press and hold the Home button and physical Wake/Sleep button simultaneously for about 10 seconds. The device should power on and take you to the home screen. You can now use your iPhone normally.
