Soft Reset Your iPhone 7

If your iPhone mobile has become slow down and takes too much time to respond, you can solve the issue by using a Soft Reset method. This method is enough to refresh your iPhone 7. This will stop the troublesome apps and restart all the functions, without harm to the data in your mobile phone. Simply this can be called rebooting. And this is the occasion that we should begin troubleshooting a mobile phone.

The term soft reset is a little bit changer than a simple restart or ‘power cycle’. This switches the phone off and on repeatedly. Follow these steps to do the Soft Reset

Keep pressing the sleep/off button and the volume button altogether for about 10 seconds.

When you will see the Apple logo appearing, leave both buttons.

Keep the phone for a few seconds and press and hold the side button one more time. This will turn it back on.

The soft reset function is the best first method to force your iPhone 7 to shut down the programs. This will not affect your information on your mobile.

Factory Resetting of the iPhone 7

If the above-given methods do not solve the problem, you can try factory resetting the iPhone 7. But you should keep remembering that this method will delete all of your files, settings, preferences, and applications. The phone will become the mode that you started using it. All the phone settings will return to the default mode.

As the mobile is a blank one, the programs which were causing errors will not be there anymore. So you have to install all the essential apps from time to time.

This factory reset will fix many of the errors on your iPhone, and also will delete all the personal data. We recommend you use iTunes to perform this function.

Login iTunes

You have to log into iTunes to save any of your files and settings before doing the backup of the phone. So it is better to go for the one-stop-shop approach and make the factory reset there.

  1. Connect the iPhone to your computer and open iTunes.
  2. Save the files and settings in iTunes as needed.
  3. Select your iPhone in iTunes and select the Summary from the menu appearing on the left side
  4. Click on Restore iPhone in the right pane.
  5. Select Restore in the pop-up window and confirm what you need to select.

After this process, the iPhone will restart and load into a new screen as you saw on the first day. Set up the basic features there and reconnect to iTunes one more time. You have the possibility to reload the files and settings directly from iTunes.

Anyhow it is not essential to make a factory reset using iTunes. If you do not want to use iTunes, you can visit this site and get some information.  Factory reset the iPhone 7 within the phone itself.

  1. Go to the settings
  2. Select General
  3. Tap Reset and Erase All Content and Settings
  4. Enter the password or the Apple ID to confirm that you are continuing the factory reset.
  5. Wait until the phone finishes the factory reset and restart the setup screen.

When resetting the iPhone, you have to try recreating the errors to check whether the device still has the software bug.

If you are still facing the issues, navigate to the Apple Store Genius Bar and get some help with your iPhone. The Apple Store will fix the error or replace the device for you. But it should be under the warranty or Apple Care.

When considering the iPhone 7 model A1660, the No Service error was a big problem in the main logic board. If you face any software issues like this, contacting Apple support or moving to a new model can be the best option.
