If you find your iPhone dead one day, check out these 3 tips to bring your iPhone back to life.

Charge it – If your iPhone is completely dead, the first thing you should do is try charging it back up. You may find it takes 5 to 10 minutes of charge before it comes back to life with the red battery charge.

Reboot it – If your iPhone is frozen or you have a dead iPhone try holding down the Home Key and the Off Key for 10 seconds until the red slider appears. Slide this across and then reboot.

Restore If all else fails, connect up to iTunes and try doing a restore. Upgrade to the latest version of iTunes if you haven’t already and wait for the iPhone to appear under devices. Do a backup and synchronize if you haven’t done one, then a restore.


If you find your battery depletes very quickly then you should try a full reboot as well.
