- Cleaning the screen:
iPhone Screens are one of the most delicate screens you can find on smartphones. If the screen is not working, then the first thing you should do – apart from switching the phone off and on –is cleaning the screen as properly as possible. Not like you do when you wipe it with your hands, but with perfect solution and soft cloth. Check it in bright light to wipe out all of the gunk and debris that will not be visible in normal light. And then, make sure you clean your fingers too. These steps will surely improve the touch sensibility.
- Hard Reboot:
The next thing to do, if the problem still persists, is switching off. By that, we mean not just switching off and on, but doing a hard reboot. Hold the home button and volume down button till the screen shows the Apple Logo, for the newer iPhones, whereas hold the home button and power button together while the logo comes, in case of older phones. If the problem is just a bug or software freeze, this should work just fine.
