Are you about to be an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus owner? I’m excited for you.
The pre-order will start tomorrow morning (Sept. 9th, 2016 as of writing this post). Once you’ve completed the purchase, your job is basically done.
Sit back, relax, and wait for your brand new iPhone to arrived.
Oh wait, there is more.
In the past, ever single iPhone releases come with several problems. And I’m sure this one wouldn’t be an exception. While you’re already here, mind take a look below?
You will find some of the most common iPhone 7 problems along with its workarounds.
iPhone 7 stuck in recovery mode
Recovery mode is nothing new to us. It’s been around for years. In fact, recovery mode is useful too, occasionally.
But if your iPhone 7 or 7 Plus is stuck in recovery mode for no reason, that’s not a good sign.
There are multiple ways to fix this. The easiest way is use take advantage of tools like RecBoot, TinyUmbrella, and similar software.
Here, we will use ReiBoot as an example.
- Download ReiBoot from here
- Connect your iPhone to the computer
- Open the utility and click on Exit Recovery
And your iPhone should reboot back up.
Boot loop or stuck on Apple logo
This one is of course not new at all. You see the Apple logo everywhere, even when you restart your iPhone. However, users should be worried if their device gets stuck on boot loop.
But it’s not hard to solve this problem. The workaround to an iPhone 7 boot loop would be DFU mode. When you enter this mode, it will let you restore your iPhone from iTunes.
This will put it back to the factory settings and allow you to setup your phone again.
iPhone 7 Won’t Charge
This is a headache right here. Without power, you can’t have a functional iPhone.
- Be sure to use the original adapter and wire that comes with the packaging.
- Connect it to a computer or different power outlets
- Restart your iPhone
- Clean out the ports in case of dirt
That should help.
No Sim Card
So you just got your iPhone 7 and about to make some calls. But then you see an error that says, “No SIM card installed.”
- Swipe up from the home screen to activate Control Center
- Tap on the AirPlane Mode icon
- Wait a few seconds and tap on it again to disable
If that doesn’t work, try restarting your iPhone.
Touchscreen is untouchable
What’s the point of using a smartphone when the touchscreen isn’t working right?
If your iPhone touchscreen becomes unresponsive, try locking the device and turn it back on. Another fix includes pressing and holding the home and power buttons until you see an Apple logo.
iPhone doesn’t ring
When your iPhone is in Do Not Disturb mode, the ring functionality will be turned off. Furthermore, any incoming calls will go straight to the voicemail.
If this is what you’re experiencing, go to Settings > General > Do Not Disturb and reconfigure it.
There are millions of them out there. But we’ve listed the most common one above. If you have seen a significant problem that we didn’t mention, comment below.
I would also suggest visiting the Apple Store as well. They should be able to help you out if the solutions we recommend doesn’t work.
