If my iPhone is not responding ! What can i do ?

iPad and iPhones since iOS 16 have been a bit troublesome. The screens go black, they freeze, weird things happen. To fix it we do a simple thing called a hard reset. You will NOT lose any information. All you have to do is the following. If you can dim the screen by pressing the power button on the right hand side do it then…VOL UP once, VOL DOWN once, then press and hold the POWER BUTTON and keep holding it (DO NOT SLIDE TO POWER OFF!) and in 12-15 seconds the Apple logo will re-appear, now you can let go. in 9 out of 10 cases this fixes the glitch, restarts a blanks screen and more.
