Trick 1: Fix a frozen iPhone 11 by force-restarting
Sometimes, your iPhone 11 might just freeze up during everyday use. If that happens, one of the first things you can try is a force restart. This is like hitting the reset button on your phone – it clears up memory glitches and other issues, but don’t worry, it won’t delete any of your stuff.
How to Do a Force Restart:
- Start with the Volume Up Button: Quickly press and release the Volume Up button.
- Then the Volume Down Button: Do the same with the Volume Down button – press and quickly release.
- Hold the Side Button: Now, press and hold the Side button. Keep holding it down until your device begins to restart.
- Wait for It: Your iPhone will take a moment to shut down and then boot back up.
Force restarts are really helpful for everyday issues like when an app crashes, your phone is lagging, or it gets stuck.
Trick 2: iOS System Recovery
Finding a Long-Term Solution:
When your iPhone 11 (Pro or Max) keeps freezing or lagging, you’ll want a solid fix, not just a quick patch-up. That’s where iOS System Recovery mode comes in. It’s a great tool for both Windows and Mac OS users. This program is like a one-stop-shop for your iPhone’s problems, helping you fix issues without needing a bunch of different apps.
How It Works:
Using iOS System Recovery mode is pretty straightforward. It’s user-friendly with easy-to-navigate buttons for each step. With just a click, this free software can provide you with the latest iOS firmware for your device. You can download this directly onto your computer and use it to repair your iPhone. This way, you can say goodbye to the annoying freezing or lagging issues without too much hassle.
Trick 3: Quit or delete unresponsive apps
Tackling App-Related Freezes:
Sometimes, your iPhone might freeze or become unresponsive because of certain apps. This is more likely when an app is using up a lot of resources or if it’s not quite compatible with your phone. If you notice your iPhone acting up after using a particular app, it might be time to take action.
What to Do:
You have a couple of options here. First, try quitting the app that’s causing trouble. If that doesn’t help, consider deleting it from your device. This can improve both the performance and stability of your iPhone. And if these steps don’t work, a force restart might be necessary. Just remember, restarting your phone should be a last resort since it takes a bit of time and effort.
Trick 4: Back to the basics – restore device to factory settings
How to Enter Recovery Mode on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max
Recovery Mode is useful if you’re having trouble updating or restoring your iPhone over-the-air. Sometimes, you might see the Apple logo on your screen for a long time without any progress bar. This is when entering Recovery Mode can be helpful.
Steps to Enter Recovery Mode:
- Connect to a Computer: Use the Lightning cable that came with your iPhone to connect it to a computer. Make sure this computer has the latest version of iTunes installed.
- Open iTunes: On your computer, open iTunes (for both Mac and PC).
- Follow the Button Sequence: With your iPhone connected to the computer, follow these steps:
- Quickly release the Volume Up button.
- Release the Side button as soon as you see the “Connect to iTunes” screen on your iPhone.
- Select Your iPhone in iTunes: Once your iPhone is connected, select it in iTunes.
- Restore or Update: iTunes will display a message saying your iPhone is in Recovery Mode. You’ll then have the option to either restore or update the operating system of your iPhone.

What if nothing is working on a frozen iPhone 11 (Pro, Max)
Initial Steps to Try:
- Hard Reset: If your iPhone 11 (Pro, Max) isn’t responding at all, your first step should be a Hard Reset. Press and hold down the Power button for about 10 seconds. This action forces your phone to shut down and restart, which might fix any software glitches causing the freeze.
- Contact Apple Support: If the Hard Reset doesn’t solve the problem, it’s a good idea to get in touch with Apple. You can do this through their customer service website or by visiting an Apple Store. They can help diagnose the issue, and if they find any physical damage, they may offer repair services. Your warranty might even cover an upgrade if it’s applicable.
- Consider a Full System Factory Reset: As a last resort, if nothing else works, a full system factory reset may be necessary. This step should restore your device’s functionality, but remember, it will erase all data on your phone, so use this option only if absolutely necessary.
