One day your Apple iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max or iPhone Xr was working like charm and the next day it started to turn off like crazy? We can only imagine how annoying it must be to have your smartphone turning off when you expect less, sometimes even several times in a row, with no warning whatsoever…
This problem with the Apple iPhone 8, iPhone Xr iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max that keeps restarting, however, is quite well-known among the numerous users out there. And since we’ve got a few complaints in this direction lately, we’ve put together this list of quick fixes that should spare you from seeing that Apple logo all the time.
Before we introduce you to our list of solutions that you can implement all by yourself, let us say that it may not be such a bad idea to use the official Apple Support. There are instances when this problem is actually caused by some serious damage (like a defective battery that no longer keeps up with the performances required by the device) that cannot be handled in any other way. If you want to convince yourself that the authorized service is the only solution for your situation, here is what you can test first:
Can it be an older or a recently installed app causing these sudden reboots?
When you’ve just installed a third party app and your iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 plus starts to act like crazy, it’s easy to connect the dots. But there may be instances when even an older app can behave strangely, especially if the developer didn’t update it in a while. You can test this assumption within the Safe Mode, a place where problematic third-party apps are not allowed to run and where you can also safely remove whatever app you want.
If you’ve accessed the Safe Mode and you have noticed that the sudden reboots have stopped, the above supposition is confirmed. So, tap and hold the Home and the Power keys until the screen turns black and after that hold just the Power key. Release it and tap the Volume Up button when the Apple logo shows up, holding this key up until you notice the springboard loading. Does the iPhone still turn off out of the blue? If it doesn’t, which app do you think you should uninstall right away?
Can it be the iOS system itself causing the iPhone 8, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr to keep restarting?
Next to the bad apps, you have the bad firmware that can just as easily mess up with your Apple device. Especially if you have gone through a recent firmware update, you should suspect this cause and try to fix it with a factory reset. As you probably know, you must always back up your data before starting to factory reset an iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, iPhone Xr, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus. Only when you’re sure that you’ve protected your most important files you can and you should do this reset. Most likely, all the problems will stop when you start configuring the iPhone from scratch.
