Step 1: Force Restart

If your iPhone screen is not responding to touch, the first thing you should try is a force restart. To do this:

  • On iPhone X or newer models:
    • Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
    • Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
    • Press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.

    • Drag the slider to turn off your device.
    • After a few seconds, press and hold the Side (or Top) button again until you see the Apple logo.

Step 2: Update iOS

An outdated iOS version can sometimes cause issues with touch responsiveness. To update your iOS:

  1. Connect your iPhone to a stable Wi-Fi network.
  2. Navigate to Settings > General > Software Update.
    • Select “Download and Install” if an update is available.
    • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the update.

If your iPhone screen is still unresponsive, you can try calibrating the touch screen. Here’s how:

  1. Open a stock app like Notes or Messages.
  2. Hold down the Power button until you see “Slide to Power Off”.
  3. Release the Power button.
  4. Press and hold the Home button (for iPhones with a Home button) or Side button (for iPhones without a Home button) until you’re back to the Home screen.

Step 4: Restore iPhone

If none of the previous steps worked, you can try restoring your iPhone as a last resort. Before doing this, ensure you have backed up your device to avoid any data loss. Follow these steps to restore your iPhone:

  1. Connect your iPhone to a computer with iTunes installed.
  2. Launch iTunes and select your device when it appears.
    • Select “Summary” from the left panel.
    • Click on “Restore iPhone”.
      • If prompted, select “Restore” again to confirm.
      • Wait for iTunes to download and install the latest iOS version on your device.

    In Conclusion

    If your iPhone screen becomes unresponsive, don’t panic. Start by force restarting your device, updating the iOS, and calibrating the touch screen.

    If the problem persists, you can restore your iPhone using iTunes. Hopefully, one of these steps will help bring your unresponsive iPhone screen back to life.

    Remember to always keep your iPhone updated and maintain a regular backup routine to avoid any inconvenience in the future.

    Now go ahead and fix that unresponsive iPhone screen! Good luck!
