1. The White Screen of Death
There are various reasons why the white screen of death can appear on your iPhone devices. Hardware problems, jailbreak or a failed upgrade could all be the cause. The first thing you should try is to restart your device if that fails to take your iPhone back to factory settings. If both of these techniques fail, boot the iPhone in DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade) mode. You should beware that taking your iPhone back to factory settings or booting in DFU mode will wipe all of the data and settings that you had on the device. Ensure that you have your iCloud and iTunes backed up before you try this step, to make sure you keep all of your data.

3. iPhone Speaker Not Functioning
It is a common issue that we see a lot here at iMendMacs, the first thing you should look at is if the device is in silent mode, the volume is turned down or your Bluetooth is off. If you continue to have problems and have no sound or distorted sound is coming out of the speakers, open any of your apps that has music and change the volume with the volume button. Alternatively, you may have something stuck in your speaker e.g., fluff from the pocket in your jeans. If none of the above help, then you will need the iPhone speaker repaired or replaced.

5. iPhone Application Freezes
Any iPhone app can freeze unexpectedly while using or whilst launching the application. A reason why this may occur is due to the iOS version you currently have doesn’t support the app you’re trying to run or the app isn’t properly installed on your iPhone. A good way to stop this from happening is restarting your device and then checking to see if the app is functioning properly. Another was you can troubleshoot this issue is reinstalling the newest version of the app from the App store.
