iPhone Screen not Working: What to do?

What to do if iPhone Screen not Working? There are regular disputes on the network about whether it’s worth it to leave the iPhone charging for the whole night. And this applies not only to iPhones but also to all other devices.

From personal experience, I can say that for more than ten years I have been charging all devices exclusively at night and have never encountered increased battery degradation. Everything corresponds to the style of operation.

What Should You do When Your iPhone Screen not Working?

But for some users, it is important that their smartphone is charged strictly for the time allotted for this and not a minute more. That’s why they charge iPhones at night and remove it at night.

With the advent of fast chargers, leaving your smartphone charging overnight has become unnecessary.

In such a situation, there is a possibility of increased battery drain overnight and in the morning get not only one hundred, but not even ninety percent of the charge. Let’s take a look at the reasons for this battery behavior and see how you can save some charge.

Battery Consumption

Do not rush to reset. Perhaps the problem can be solved by deleting an unnecessary application.

As you have already understood, I always try to charge my devices at night. But there was once a situation when such an opportunity was not. I replenished the evening charge and left the smartphone on the table next to the bed. And in the morning I only found 69% instead of hundred.

To say that I was shocked is to say nothing. Since this iPhone behavior is not adequate, I decided to look into the reasons. The most common of these are:

  • Poor signal reception.
  • Wireless connections enabled.
  • Software update.
  • Apps running in the background.
  • SIM card problem.
  • Battery degradation.

The first thing to exclude is apps that run in the background. For that:

If it was in the program, then you will see the corresponding expense in the “Activity” column opposite. To check if this is indeed the case, simply remove it overnight and watch the behavior of the battery.

If all is well, you can send the program back to the iPhone and force it to shut down for the night. It’s most likely right constantly uses geolocation or load network data. If it is a toy, it can even in the background load the processor and cause increased discharge.

On iOS, of course, background programs are quickly turned off by the system, but sometimes even that is enough to spend the valuable interest.

How to Disable Wi-Fi on iPhone?

There is no need to disconnect your Apple Watch from your smartphone at night.

But the apps might not be to blame. Then you can move on to the next item – wireless connections and poor network reception. It should be noted an important point that the iPhone if available Wireless downloads various cloud information and updates apps. And if there is no Wi-Fi can make it through LTE.

If the router in your apartment is located far from where the smartphone spends the night, it has to spend more energy to maintain the signal. The same thing happens with the cellular network. Reception quality directly affects battery consumption.

Many advise turning off Bluetooth. But, as the practice has shown, when the device to which the iPhone is connected is nearby, there was often no throughput. Therefore, it is not necessary to do so.

The main thing is to estimate the distance between your gadgets. To determine if they are affected by cellular network and Wi-Fi in case of battery depletion proceed as follows:

  • Open Settings.
  • Activate airplane mode.
  • Leave the smartphone overnight and watch the result.

If interest hasn’t leaked to the same extent as with airplane mode turned off, we’re starting to work out who’s most to blame:

  • Open Settings.
  • Disable airplane mode.
  • We go to Wi-Fi and turn it off.

Wi-Fi must be disabled in the settings. The control center switch only stops searching for networks for a certain period of time. After that, we also leave the smartphone for the night. If the charge is kept, the culprit is found – it’s Wi-Fi. In the case of battery consumption at the same level, it is necessary to:

  • Open Settings.
  • Activate airplane mode.
  • Connect to Wi-Fi and turn it on.

With these actions, we completely disabled the smartphone’s access to the cellular network but retained Internet access using Wi-Fi to receive notifications from various instant messengers.

If after that the charging stabilizes, then in the place where the iPhone spends the night, the signal level from your carrier is weak. You either have to move it to another place or change the operator.

Factory Reset iPhone

Factory reset is an extreme way to fix a software problem.

But personally, I encountered another problem. At this stage, it was decided to change the operator. It so happened that I had a chance to try the quality of communication on another iPhone with the same operator in the place where my smartphone is constantly.

The result was unexpected. The network picked up perfectly, and iPhone not draining. I contacted the operator for clarification, and they offered to replace the sim card.

That’s exactly what I did. After replacing the problem with poor signal reception, I disappeared and stabilized the battery discharge. Therefore, do not rush to transfer the number to other operators. Start by changing SIMs. Maybe this will help you.

But it may not be related. Remember that using betas of iOS often results in increased battery consumption. If you are having this issue on the iOS 16 beta, follow our instructions to downgrade to the official firmware. The same effect can happen right after a software update.

Periodically, something can go wrong and this issue pops up. Here will help you return to factory settings. And I advise you not to restore the backup but to configure the smartphone as new. Then you can avoid repeating such a mistake. To reset, follow these steps:

If it was a software failure, it will be resolved by a reset. But it is possible that the battery of your smartphone has just enough time to rest. Then the only way is to the services Center.

Above all, before you go there, make sure to try all the previous steps. Maybe something will help you.
