Your Apple Watch won’t restart and you don’t know why. You’re pressing the side button and the Digital Crown, but nothing’s happening. In this article, I’ll explain the reasons why your Apple Watch is not restarting and show you how to fix the problem!

Why Won’t My Apple Watch Restart?

There are typically four reasons why an Apple Watch won’t restart:

  1. It’s frozen and completely unresponsive.
  2. It’s in Power Reserve mode.
  3. It ran out of battery life and it’s not charging.
  4. There’s a hardware problem with your Apple Watch.

This article will help you address each problem so you can get your Apple Watch working normally again!

Hard Reset Your Apple Watch

If your Apple Watch won’t restart because it’s frozen, try performing a hard reset. This will force your Apple Watch to abruptly turn off and back on, which will remove it from its frozen state.

To hard reset your Apple Watch, simultaneously press and hold the Digital Crown and the side button. Release both buttons when the Apple logo appears on the center of the display. Your Apple Watch will turn back on shortly after the Apple logo appears.

Is Your Apple Watch In Power Reserve Mode?

Your Apple Watch might not be restarting because it’s in Power Reserve mode, which conserves battery life by turning your Apple Watch into little more than a digital wrist watch.

If your Apple Watch has enough battery life, you can exit Power Reserve by pressing and holding the side button until the Apple logo appears on the center of the watch face. Your Apple Watch will turn back on shortly after you’ve released the side button.

If your Apple Watch doesn’t have enough battery life to exit Power Reserve mode, you won’t be able to restart your Apple Watch until you’ve charged it for a little while. You’ll know you have to charge up your Apple Watch if you see a small, red lightning bolt on the display.

charge apple watch to exit power reserve

Is Your Apple Watch Charging?

If you’ve placed your Apple Watch on its magnetic charger, but it still isn’t restarting, there may be a software or hard problem preventing your Apple Watch from charging.

Your Apple Watch’s software, your charger, your charging cable, and the magnetic back of your Apple Watch all play an important role in the charging process. If one component isn’t working properly, your Apple Watch simply won’t charge.

Check out our article to diagnose and fix the real reason why your Apple Watch won’t charge. Once you do, you’ll be able to restart your Apple Watch once again!

Erase All Content And Settings

Erasing All Content and Settings on an Apple Watch resets all of its setting to factory defaults and deletes all data and media on the Watch. It’s the last step you can take to completely rule out a software problem. After the reset is complete, you’ll have to reconnect your Apple Watch to your iPhone like you did when you first took it out of the box.

We recommend backing up your Apple Watch before completing this step. If you perform this reset without a backup, you’ll lose all the saved data on your Apple Watch.

Open the Watch app on your iPhone and tap General -> Reset -> Erase Apple Watch Content and Settings. Tap Erase All Content and Settings to confirm your decision.

Hardware Problems

If your Apple Watch won’t restart and you’ve ruled out the first three potential causes, there may be a hardware problem with your Apple Watch. Often times, physical or water damage can prevent your Apple Watch from restarting.

We recommend making a trip to your local Apple Store — just remember to schedule an appointment first! An Apple tech or Genius will be able to assess the damage and determine whether or not a repair is necessary.

A Fresh (Re)start

You’ve successfully fixed your Apple Watch and now you can start using it again. Next time your Apple Watch won’t restart, you’ll know exactly where to come to fix the problem. Feel free to leave any other comments you have about your Apple Watch in the comments section below!

Thanks for reading,

Your iPhone has been requesting the latest software update for longer than usual and you’re not sure why. When a new iOS update becomes available, your iPhone has to request, prepare, and download the update before it can be installed. In this article, I’ll explain why your iPhone is stuck on Update Requested and show you how to fix this problem for good!

Make Sure You’re Connected To Wi-Fi

One of the main reasons why an iPhone gets stuck on Update Requested, or any other part of the update process, is because your iPhone has a weak or no connection to Wi-Fi. A poor Wi-Fi connection can prevent your  iPhone from accessing Apple’s servers, which are needed to download new iOS updates.

Go to Settings -> Wi-Fi and make your iPhone is connected to a Wi-Fi network.

check connection to wifi

It’s really important that your iPhone is connected to a strong Wi-Fi network when updating your iPhone. Sometimes, Apple even requires that your iPhone use Wi-Fi to update when a major iOS update is available.

If your Wi-Fi connection is unstable, try connecting to a different Wi-Fi network. Check out our other article for more tips on what to do when your iPhone won’t connect to Wi-Fi.

Hard Reset Your iPhone

It’s possible your iPhone is stuck on Update Requested because its software crashed, causing your iPhone to freeze. You can hard reset your iPhone to quickly turn your iPhone off and back on, which will unfreeze it.

There are a few different ways to hard reset your iPhone, depending on which iPhone you have:

  • iPhone SE and earlier: Simultaneously press and hold the Home button and the power button until your iPhone turns off and the Apple logo appears on the screen.
  • iPhone 7 & iPhone 8: Simultaneously press and hold the power button and the volume button until your iPhone shut downs and the Apple logo flashes onto the center of the screen.
  • iPhone X: Press the volume up button, then the volume down button, then press and hold the side button as your iPhone shuts down and the Apple logo appears.

Note: You may need to hold both buttons (or just the side button on your iPhone X) for 15–30 seconds!

Delete The Software Update

If you hard reset your iPhone but it still gets stuck on Update Requested, go to Settings -> General -> iPhone Storage and and see if you can delete the iOS update from your iPhone.

Tap on the software update, then tap Delete Update. Afterwards, head back to Settings -> General -> Software Update and try to download and install the update again.

If the software update doesn’t appear here, it didn’t get downloaded yet, so there’s nothing to delete.

Reset All Settings

Sometimes a deeper software problem can get your iPhone stuck on Update Requested. It can be difficult to track down the exact source of the problem, so we recommend resetting all settings.

When you Reset All Settings, everything in the Settings app is resorted to factory defaults. This means you’ll have to reenter your Wi-Fi passwords, reconnect any Bluetooth devices, reset your wallpaper, and reimplement our iPhone battery tips.

Open Settings and tap General -> Reset -> Reset All Settings. You’ll be asked to enter your iPhone passcode. Tap Reset All Settings again to confirm your decision.

Your iPhone will turn off, reset, then turn itself on again. Try updating your iPhone again once the reset is complete.

Put Your iPhone In DFU Mode

Finally, if your iPhone gets stuck on Update Requested, you can perform a DFU restore, which will erase and reload all the code on your iPhone and update it to the latest version of iOS. This is the last step you can take to completely rule out a software or a firmware problem.

We strongly recommend backing up your iPhone before putting it into DFU mode. Otherwise, you’ll lose all the data on your iPhone, including your photos, videos, and contacts.

Check out our complete guide to DFU restores to learn how to put your iPhone into DFU mode!

Update Requested & Delivered!

Your iPhone is finally up to date! I hope you’ll share this article on social media to help your friends and family if their iPhone gets stuck on Update Requested. Leave a comment or question below if there’s anything else you need help with!

Apple made headlines Tuesday by announcing a new pair of headphones: the AirPods Max. The internet is buzzing over the design and high price tag of Apple’s latest product. In this article, we’ll help you decide if you should get the AirPods Max.

AirPods Max Features

AirPods Max come with several awesome features. For example, you can easily jump between listening on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac computer thanks to automatic switching. With Audio Sharing, you can connect multiple pairs of AirPods or AirPods Max to a single device.

AirPods Max also personalize the listening experience using Adaptive EQ. Adaptive EQ specifically adjusts the headphones’ low-end and mid-range frequency levels based on the audio signal sent to the listener. Combined with their four-microphone noise cancellation system, AirPods Max provide a pure listening experience.

AirPods Max interact with their surroundings in other ways as well. Transparency Mode allows you to hear your environment clearly, even while streaming audio. Using a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, the AirPods Max Spatial Audio feature adjusts where and how they transmit sound based on their motion while in use. We found this feature especially enhances video watching.

Finally, AirPods Max work seamlessly with Siri. These features include calling, messaging, playing music, and controlling navigation apps completely hands-free!

Touch Controls

The AirPods Max have two buttons: a noise-cancelling button and a digital crown. The digital crown allows you to adjust the volume, play and pause songs, skip between tracks, and activate Siri.

What’s Up With The Case?

The AirPods Max have an interesting case, but we’re not sure how much protection it will provide. The headband, which you use to carry these headphones while they’re in the case, is totally exposed. In addition, the bottom part of the case leaves the ear cups and Lightning port partially exposed as well.

Since the headphones don’t collapse or fold, they’ll take up a lot of space when you’re traveling as well. It seems like it’d be easy for the exposed portions of these headphones to get damaged if put into a backpack or suitcase.

A Smart Case Silver Lining

While we are not huge fans of the brassiere-like design, it does offer some good functionality. Your AirPods Max enter a very low power state when placed in the Smart Case, which helps them preserve their current battery life.

Even if you’re not using your AirPods Max, leaving them out anywhere can cost you some serious battery life if you’re not careful. The only way to avoid this battery drain is to place your AirPods Max in their case.

When secured in their case, AirPods Max enter a low power mode that significantly increases their battery life. Despite its flimsy and flawed design, users will not want to take their AirPods Max anywhere without their case. Especially since these headphones don’t even come with a charger included!

Listening With AirPods Max

In spite of their high price tag and impractical case, AirPods Max do make for an enjoyable listening experience. Their sound quality is optimized for a huge array of listeners and media.

These headphones are built well. Their headband feels solid and comfortable, but its weight is not overwhelming. The removable ear cups also feel quite nice on the ear, and you can purchase replacements if they ware out.The mesh ear cup design acts as a reliable hybrid between the bigger sound quality of open ear headphones and the more equalized experience of closed ear headphones.

The AirPods Max noise cancelling design is intricate, but not exceptional. In truth, we believe you could find superior noise cancellation in headphones that cost hundreds of dollars less.

We wouldn’t recommend AirPods Max to any audio professionals out there, but a we do see the benefit they might offer to casual listeners.

Why Are We Still Using Lightning Connectors?

Another disappointing feature of the AirPods Max is its Lightning connector. Many are predicting Lightning will be replaced by USB-C in the near future. So why is Apple continuing to build new, high-end products with Lightning connectors if the technology will be obsolete soon?

Including a Lightning port at all also makes these headphones unnecessarily fragile. If even a single drop of water gets into this port, it could destroy AirPods Max entirely.

So, Should I Buy The AirPods Max?

We’re having a hard time justifying the $550 price tag for these headphones. For something so expensive, we’d like them to have fewer glaring flaws. You also have to pay an extra $35 for the audio cable that allows you to connect your AirPods Max to a headphone jack.

Are you going to get the AirPods Max? Let us know in the comments section below.

Quieres restablecer un iPhone, pero no sabes cómo hacerlo. Hay varios tipos diferentes de restablecimientos que puedes hacer en un iPhone, por lo que puede ser difícil saber qué restablecimiento usar cuando algo anda mal con tu iPhone. En este artículo, te mostraré cómo restablecer un iPhone y te explicaré que tipo de restablecimiento de iPhone debes usar en cada caso.

¿Qué restablecimiento debo realizar en mi iPhone?

Parte de la confusión sobre cómo restablecer un iPhone proviene de la palabra misma. El término “restablecer” puede significar diferentes cosas para diferentes personas. Una persona puede decir “restablecer” cuando quiere borrar todo el contenido en un iPhone, mientras que otra persona puede usar el término “restablecer” cuando solo quiere cambiar los ajustes de su iPhone.

El objetivo de este artículo no es solo mostrarte cómo restablecer un iPhone, sino también ayudarte a determinar el restablecimiento correcto para lo que deseas lograr.

Los Diferentes Tipos de Restablecimientos de iPhone

Nombre Cómo lo llama Apple Cómo hacerlo Que hace Qué corrige/soluciona
Reinicio Forzado Reinicio Forzado iPhone 6 y modelos anteriores: mantén presionado el botón de encendido + botón de inicio hasta que aparezca el logotipo de Apple

Reinicio Reinicio Mantén presionado el botón de encendido. Desliza el control deslizante de encendido de izquierda a derecha. Espera de 15 a 30 segundos, luego presiona y mantén presionado el botón de encendido nuevamente.

Reinicio Forzado

La mayoría de las veces, cuando alguien quiere reiniciar un iPhone, está pensando en un reinicio forzado. Un reinicio forzado obliga a tu iPhone a apagarse y volverse a encender abruptamente, lo que puede ser una solución rápida si tu iPhone está congelado o atascado en el logotipo de Apple.

Sin embargo, los reinicios forzados no suelen ser una solución permanente para ningún problema relacionado con el iPhone porque casi siempre hay un problema de software más profundo en juego. Un reinicio forzado es una curita para tu iPhone, cuando realmente este necesita puntos.

Cómo hacer un reinicio forzado a un iPhone

Para realizar un reinicio forzado en un iPhone 6 Plus o un modelo anterior, presiona y mantén presionado simultáneamente el botón de encendido y el botón Inicio hasta que aparezca el logotipo de Apple en el centro de la pantalla de tu iPhone.

Para hacer un reinicio forzado a un iPhone 7 o 7 Plus, mantén presionado el botón de encendido y el botón para bajar el volumen al mismo tiempo, luego suéltalo cuando aparezca el logotipo de Apple en la pantalla de tu iPhone.

Si tienes un iPhone 8 o un modelo más nuevo, presiona el botón para subir el volumen, luego el botón para bajar el volumen, luego presiona y mantén presionado el botón lateral. Suelta el botón lateral tan pronto como aparezca el logotipo de Apple.

El reinicio forzado de un iPhone puede demorar hasta 30 segundos, ¡así que ten paciencia!

Reinicio

Un “reinicio” simplemente se refiere a apagar y encender tu iPhone. Hay algunas formas de reiniciar un iPhone.

La forma más común de reiniciar un iPhone es apagarlo presionando el botón de encendido y deslizando el control deslizante de izquierda a derecha cuando la frase deslizar para apagar aparezca en la pantalla. Luego, puedes volver a encender tu iPhone presionando y manteniendo presionado el botón de encendido nuevamente hasta que aparezca el logotipo de Apple, o conectando tu iPhone a una fuente de alimentación eléctrica.

Los iPhones con iOS 11 también te brindan la posibilidad de apagar tu iPhone en Ajustes. A continuación, toca General -> Apagar y desliza para apagar aparecerá en la pantalla. Luego, desliza el icono de encendido rojo de izquierda a derecha para apagar tu iPhone.

desliza para apagar icono de encendido en el iphone

Cómo Reiniciar un iPhone si el Botón de Encendido Está Roto

Si el botón de encendido no funciona, puedes reiniciar un iPhone con AssistiveTouch. Primero, enciende AssistiveTouch en Ajustes -> Accesibilidad -> Tocar -> AssistiveTouch tocando el interruptor junto a AssistiveTouch. Sabrás que el interruptor está encendido cuando esté verde.

Luego, toca el botón virtual que aparece en la pantalla de tu iPhone y toca Dispositivo -> Más -> Reiniciar. Finalmente, toca Reiniciar cuando aparezca la confirmación en el centro de la pantalla de tu iPhone.

Whether at work or school, you’ll have to deal with Portable Document Formats, or PDFs. It’s not always easy to read or markup PDFs, but there are some apps that can improve your experience. In this article, we’ll tell you about the best Apple PDF reader in 2021.

Should I Use A Native Or Third-Party PDF Reader?

Apple has done an excellent job of integrating a PDF reader into native apps. You can use Books to read and markup PDFs on your iPhone and iPad, and you can use Preview to do the same on your Mac.

For many people, Apple’s native PDF readers will be the best option. They’re completely free and have many of the same features as third-party PDF reader apps.

If you aren’t a fan of Apple’s native PDF readers, we’ll recommend our favorite third-party PDF reader app for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

How To Use Books As A PDF Reader

To open a PDF in Books on your iPhone or iPad, tap the Share button (look for the box with an arrow pointing up). Find the Books icon in the row of apps and tap it to send the PDF to the Books app.

open pdf in books app

Once in the Books app, tap on the PDF to display the toolbar. You’ll see a few different buttons in the toolbar.

Tap the button Markup button (look for the marker tip inside of a circle) to annotate the PDF. From here, you can highlight text, write notes, and more. Tap the plus button in the lower right-hand corner of the screen to type out text, add a signature, magnify a certain part of the PDF, or add shapes to the document.

The AA button allows you to increase the brightness of the PDF and swap between horizontal or vertical scrolling. Tap the Search button to look for a specific word within the PDF. If it’s a word or phrase you’re unfamiliar with, you can tap Search Web or Search Wikipedia at the bottom of the screen to learn more.

Save Your Progress

If you’re reading a particularly long PDF and want to save your progress, tap the Bookmark button in the upper right-hand corner of the screen.

One of the biggest announcements Apple made at their September Apple Event was their new service, Apple Fitness+. In conjunction with their new service Apple One, the new Apple Watch models, and the new iPad models, there’s plenty coming from Apple to get excited about in the coming months. In this article, I’ll tell you everything you need to know about Apple Fitness+!

Apple Fitness+, Explained

Fitness+ is a new, subscription-based service available for the Apple Watch. This program is designed to help Apple users by providing and monitoring workouts designed by the great trainers from around the world.

Apple Fitness+ will release new workouts every week, specifically designed to help tech fans and athletes across all levels of physical fitness. It will feature workouts tailored toward every type of exercise you can imagine.

fitness plus apple watch

At the Event, Apple announced that running, walking, rowing, yoga, and dance will be just a few of the exercise categories you can enjoy guided by Apple Fitness+.

While designed as an extension for the Apple Watch, you’ll be able to use Fitness+ with any other Apple product you have in your arsenal. Whether you want to see a demonstration on your Apple TV’s screen, or you’re on the go with just your laptop on hand, you can sync your workout to all of your personal tech for inspiration and real-time updates on your progress.

fitness+ programs

Apple Fitness+ And Apple Music

Another exciting aspect of Apple Fitness+ is how easily you can connect it to an Apple Music subscription. Many of the trainers who contribute workouts to Apple Fitness+ also curate playlists specifically designed to pair with the workout.

You can easily integrate any music you enjoy from a Fitness+ workout directly into your Apple Music library. This process will be even smoother and more affordable if you opt for Apple’s new service package, Apple One!

apple music september event

What Do I Need To Use Apple Fitness+?

The first thing you’ll need to access Apple Fitness+ is a paid subscription. When released, an individual Apple+ subscription will cost $9.99 per month or $79.99 for a full year. These subscriptions come with a free month of access if you already own an Apple Watch, and you can share your Fitness+ subscription with up to 5 other people. If your purchase the Apple Watch SE or Apple Watch Series 6, you’ll get 3 months of Fitness+ free.

You’ll also need an Apple Watch. While this may sound like a frustrating limitation to what could be a superb workout program on its own, the benefits to Apple Watch’s integration to Fitness+ cannot be overlooked. Apple Fitness+ is powered by on-device intelligence in the Apple Watch. Throughout the duration of your workout, your progress rings, metrics and workout times will be available on screen from your Watch and any other device you use.

Aside from a subscription and an Apple Watch, the rest of the equipment you use it up to you! Apple Fitness+ has programs for you no matter what exercise equipment you have at your disposal.

Apple Fitness+ & GymKit

Another reason you’ll want an Apple Watch to go with your Apple Fitness+ subscription is GymKit. GymKit is a program Apple designed with exercise equipment manufacturers a few years ago. It allows users to wirelessly pair certain workout gear to their Apple Watch, so they can access accurate readings about their biometrics and workout progress.

If you plan on using Apple Fitness+ at a commercial gym, or in your home workout studio, GymKit will help you keep even better track of your workout program!

Coming Soon: Apple Fitness+

Apple plans to release Fitness+ to the public near the end of this year. If you’re looking for a highly personalized and easily accessible workout program, it’s more than likely that you’ll find a perfect option from this service. Integrate your body into your Apple ecosystem in a completely new way with Apple Fitness+!

You’re on the phone with a friend when the call suddenly drops. Your iPhone says it has service, but you still can’t make calls. In this article, I’ll explain why your iPhone call failed and show you how to fix the problem for good.

Close All Of Your Apps

It’s possible the call failed because of an issue with the Phone app. Closing and reopening the app can fix a minor software glitch. We recommend closing all of your apps, just in case a different apps has crashed.

First, open the app switcher by double-pressing the Home button (iPhones without Face ID) or swiping up from the very bottom of the center of the screen (iPhones with Face ID). Then, swipe your apps up and off the top of the screen.

close apple news app

Open the Phone app again and try making a call. If the call still fails, move onto the next step.

Turn Airplane Mode On And Off

Turning Airplane Mode on and off again resets your iPhone’s cellular connection, which can potentially fix the problem when iPhone calls fail.

Open Settings and tap the switch next to Airplane Mode to turn it on. Wait a few seconds, then tap the switch again.

make sure airplane mode is off

Restart Your iPhone

The next step you can take if your iPhone call failed is to restart your device. Restarting your iPhone can fix a variety of small issues by allowing of its programs to shut down naturally. The way to turn off your iPhone varies by model:

iPhones With Face ID

  1. Press and hold either volume button and the side button.
  2. Release both buttons when slide to power off appears on the screen.
  3. Swipe the power icon from left to right to shut down your iPhone.
  4. Wait a few seconds, then press and hold the side button to turn your iPhone back on.
  5. Release the side button when the Apple logo appears.

iPhones Without Face ID

  1. Press and hold the power button until slide to power off appears.
  2. Swipe the power icon from left to right across the screen to shut off your iPhone.
  3. Wait a few seconds, then press and hold the power again to turn your iPhone on again.
  4. You can release the power button when the Apple logo appears on the screen.

Check For A Carrier Settings Update

Carrier settings updates can help improve the connection between your iPhone and wireless carrier’s network. It’s a good idea to immediately update the carrier settings when an update becomes available.

You’ll typically receive a pop-up on your iPhone when a carrier settings update is available. Tap Update if you see that notification.

You can manually check for a carrier settings update by going to Settings -> General -> About. A pop-up will appear here within fifteen seconds if a carrier settings update is available. If no pop-up appears, move onto the next step.

Check For An iOS Update

Apple routinely releases iOS updates to fix known bugs and occasionally introduce new features. We recommend installing new iOS updates as soon as they become available.

Check for an iOS update by going to Settings -> General -> Software Update. Tap Download and Install if an update is available.

check for an ios update

Eject And Reinsert The SIM Card

The SIM card connects your iPhone to your carrier’s network. This allows you to make calls, send texts, and use cellular data. Ejecting and reseating the SIM card can help fix a connectivity issue.

Locate the SIM card tray on your iPhone — it’s usually on the right side below the side button. Open the SIM card tray by pressing a SIM card ejector tool, straightened-out paperclip, or an earring backing into the hole in the SIM tray. Push the tray back in to reseat the SIM card.

eject sim card from iphone

Reset Network Settings

Resetting the network settings on your iPhone is a more advanced software troubleshooting step. It resets all of the Cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and VPN settings on your iPhone to factory defaults.

This means you’ll have to reenter your Wi-Fi passwords, reconnect your Bluetooth devices, and reconfigure any virtual private networks. It’s a little bit of an inconvenience, but it can fix the problem when calls fail on your iPhone.

Open Settings and tap General -> Reset -> Reset Network Settings. Tap Reset Network Settings again when the confirmation pop-up appears. You may be asked to enter your iPhone passcode before you can perform this reset.

Your iPhone will turn off, reset, then turn on again when the reset is finished.

iphone reset the network settings

Contact Your Wireless Carrier Or Apple

If resetting network settings didn’t work, it’s time to contact your wireless carrier or Apple. Since calls are failing, we recommend reaching out your carrier first. There might be an issue with your account only a customer support representative can resolve.

It might also be time to switch wireless carriers, especially if calls frequently fail on your iPhone.

Your carrier might tell you there’s nothing they can do and direct you to Apple support. While unlikely, it’s possible a hardware issue is causing iPhone calls to fail. You can get support from Apple over the phone, online, or through the mail by visiting Apple’s support website.

You just put a new SIM card into your iPhone, but something isn’t working right. Your iPhone is telling you that the SIM card isn’t supported. In this article, I’ll show you how to fix the problem when it says “SIM not supported” on your iPhone!

Why Is My iPhone SIM Not Supported?

An iPhone usually says a SIM is not supported because your iPhone is locked to your carrier. This means you can’t insert a SIM card from a different carrier if you switch.

To check if your iPhone is locked, open Settings and tap General -> About -> Carrier Lock. An unlocked iPhone will say No SIM Restrictions.

If you don’t see this option, or if it says something else, contact your wireless carrier about unlocking your iPhone.

check carrier lock on iphone

Though the situation described above may apply to many of you, it won’t apply to everyone. It’s unlikely, but you may be experiencing a software problem instead. Follow the steps below to troubleshoot the problem.

Restart Your iPhone

Restarting your iPhone is a quick fix for many software problems. The way to restart your iPhone varies depending on which model you have:

iPhones with Face ID: Simultaneously press and hold both the power button and either volume button until slide to power off appears on the screen. Swipe the power icon from left to right across the screen to shut down your iPhone. Press and hold the side button again until the Apple logo appears on the screen to turn on your iPhone again.

iPhone without Face ID: Press and hold the power button, then swipe the power icon across the screen when slide to power off appears. Press and hold the power button again to reboot your iPhone.

Check For An iOS Update

Apple often releases new iOS updates to fix minor bugs and roll out new features. It’s a good idea to keep your iPhone up to date anyway, but it can also fix this problem.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Software Update.

Tap Download and Install if an iOS update is available. Move onto the next step if your iPhone is up to date.

check for an ios update

Eject And Reinsert The SIM Card

Reseating the SIM card in your iPhone can fix several minor issues. Look for the SIM card tray on the side of your iPhone.

Use a SIM card ejector tool or a straightened out paperclip to open the tray. Push the tray back in to reseat the SIM card.

eject sim card from iphone

Reset Network Settings

All of your iPhone’s Cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and VPN settings get restored to factory defaults when you Reset Network Settings. Make sure to write down your Wi-Fi passwords, as you’ll have to reenter them when this reset is complete. You’ll also have to reconnect your Bluetooth devices and reconfigure any of your VPNs.

While it’s a minor inconvenience, this reset could potentially fix this problem. To Reset Network Settings:

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap General.
  3. Tap Reset.
  4. Tap Reset Network Settings.

You may be prompted to enter your passcode before you can do this reset.

iphone reset the network settings

Contact Apple Or Your Wireless Carrier

When a cellular issue occurs on your iPhone, Apple and your wireless carrier will often point the finger at each other. The truth is that there may be an issue with your iPhone or your account with your wireless carrier, and you won’t know until you get in touch with their customer support.

Check out Apple’s website to get support online, in-store, over the phone, or through live chat. You can find your carrier’s customer service center by typing their name and “customer support” into Google.

iPhone SIM Now Supported!

You’ve fixed the problem and your iPhone is working again. Next time your iPhone says “SIM not supported”, you’ll know exactly what to do. Leave a comment down below if you have any other questions!

A few people have reached out to us asking why there’s a gap between their iPhone’s screen and frame. We’ll tell you what we told them — the gap shouldn’t be there. In this article, we’ll explain what to do if your iPhone has a gap between the screen and frame.

Why Is There A Gap?

There isn’t much public information about the gaps other than a laundry list of forum posts by people with a flawed iPhone. That’s because there should never be a gap between your iPhone’s display and its frame or bezel.

Check out this video to see what the gap looks like on an iPhone 12 Pro Max. It’s big enough to slide a piece of paper into.

Problems The Gap Could Cause

We don’t blame you for being worried about this problem, if your iPhone has been affected. These gaps open up space on your iPhone’s exterior, potentially exposing its fragile components to the elements.

This gap makes it easier for liquid and debris to get inside your iPhone. Naturally, the idea of water and dirt coming in contact with your iPhone’s internal components doesn’t sound particularly appealing. Check out our other article to learn about all the ways water can permanently damage your iPhone.

What To Do If There’s A Gap In Your iPhone

We highly suggest bringing your iPhone to your local Apple Store to see what your support options are. Sometimes Apple will make exceptions and replace your iPhone, even when there’s no physical damage to the screen itself.

Visit Apple’s website to schedule an appointment before you take your iPhone to the Genius Bar. You can also get support online, over the phone, and through the mail.

Mind The Gap!

It’s no fun getting a new phone only to discover it has a serious design issue. Leave a comment down below to let us know if your iPhone has a gap between the screen and frame. Make sure to share this article on social media so your friends and family know to check their iPhone for this design flaw.

You’re turning your iPhone sideways, but the screen won’t rotate. It’s a frustrating problem, but don’t worry: The solution is just a swipe and a tap away. In this article, I’ll explain why your iPhone won’t rotate and how to fix the problem.

Why Won’t My iPhone Rotate?

Your iPhone won’t rotate because Portrait Orientation Lock is turned on. Portrait Orientation Lock locks your iPhone’s display in the upright position, which is known as portrait mode.

How Do I Know If Portrait Orientation Lock Is Turned On?

Some older iOS updates used to display a small lock icon in the upper right corner of the screen to indicate that Portrait Orientation Lock was turned on. However, newer iPhones and iOS updates no longer display this detail from the home screen.

Instead, you need to open the Control Center to monitor and adjust your Portrait Orientation Lock. Keep reading to learn exactly how to do this!

How Do I Turn Off Portrait Orientation Lock On My iPhone?

To turn off Portrait Orientation Lock, swipe up from the bottom of the display to reveal Control Center. Tap the button with the lock inside the arrow circle  to turn Portrait Orientation Lock on or off.

If you use an iPhone X or later, the process to open the Control Center is a little different. Swipe down from the top right corner of your screen. You should see a number of buttons here. Tap the one that looks like a lock surrounded by an arrow to turn the Portrait Orientation Lock on or off.

Portrait Mode vs. Landscape Mode

Just like your printer paper, your iPhone’s display has two orientations: Portrait and landscape. When your iPhone is held upright, it’s in portrait mode. When it’s on its side, it’s in landscape mode.

iPhone In Portrait Mode

 

iPhone In Landscape Mode

Landscape Mode Only Works In Certain Apps

When an app is created, the developer has the option to choose whether their app will work in portrait mode, landscape mode, or both. The Settings app, for example, only works in portrait mode. The Messages app and Safari work in both portrait and landscape mode, and many games work only in landscape mode.

If Portrait Orientation Lock is turned off and an app isn’t rotating, it may not support landscape mode. I have seen cases, however, where an app won’t rotate because it crashed. If you think that may have happened, close out your apps, reopen the problem app, and try again. I’ve also written an article about why despite what you may have heard, closing out your apps is absolutely a good idea.

When Should I Use Portrait Orientation Lock?

I use Portrait Orientation Lock when I’m rotated too. For example, When I’m using my iPhone in bed, the screen tends to rotate when I don’t want it to. Portrait Orientation Lock keeps my iPhone display in the right direction when I’m laying down.

I’ve also found it useful when I’m showing pictures to my friends. As I’m astounding them with photos of my adventures, they often become ill and excuse themselves – due to the rotating screen, of course. With Portrait Orientation Lock turned on, I can entertain them for hours on end.

I’m Pickin’ Up Good Rotations

Whether you’re watching a movie, listening to the Beach Boys, surfing the web, or you like to type using the keyboard in landscape mode, it’s always annoying when your iPhone screen won’t rotate. Now that you know why it happens, you’ll never struggle with Portrait Orientation Lock again.

Thanks for reading, and remember to pay it forward,
David P.
