[Solved]iPhone Red Screen Of Death, Top 3 Ways to Fix It

The Red Screen of Death on an iPhone 6 or 7 is an error with a capital T, and it has been something iPhone users have not wanted to see, especially with a new iPhone. The Red Screen of Death occurs for a variety of reasons, sometimes it's hardware related, sometimes software.


It can be that there's a hardware fault. Now of course Apple will rarely talk about it being a manufacturing fault, but if it's a new iPhone then that's pretty much what it is. The battery is the main culprit here, apparently, and if this turns out to be the case you should be able to get a replacement iPhone quite easily via an Apple store.

But it can also be caused by a software fault, and if that's true that's something you should check before you go to the trouble of going to a store and getting a replacement. Here we list the top 3 ways for you to fix Red Screen of Death on iPhone iPhone X/8/7/SE/6s/6/5s/5/4s

  • 1. Hard Reset

    The first thing you should do is the first thing you should do whenever your iPhone crashes . . . you should do a hard reset. Press the power button and the home button (Volume Down button for iPhone 7) and hold them both until the iPhone turns itself off. The iPhone will now start up. If this fixes the problem, great. You should back up your iPhone with iTunes immediately just in case the solution is not permanent. You should also make a mental note to make backups more often.

  • 2. Recovery Mode Restore Your iPhone

    If that doesn't work it may be that your software has somehow gotten corrupted. You can try to get the iPhone into recovery mode by holding down the home button and plugging the iPhone into iTunes via the charging cable. iTunes will recognise the stuck iPhone and offer to restore a backup or wipe it to factory settings. This might solve the problem, but you might also lose your recent data.
