In this guide, we’ll go over some common problems and how to fix them so that you can get back to using your iPhone 6. Although we picked four problems in this post, hopefully they will help users out who are experiencing these major issues.
We will cover how to fix four common problems courtesy of Digital Trends, which consist of fixing enlarged photos, how to charge an iPhone 6 that won’t charge, how to fix your Bluetooth and the dreaded red screen. We will start with how to fix the giant pictures that show up as enlarged images on your phone.
Fixing Enlarged Images:
I see a lot of reports about enlarged images or icons on iPhones, which makes it very difficult to navigate or travel around your iPhone. Well, there is good news, you can fix this problem simply by accessing your zoom feature.
- Hold three fingers together and double tap the screen and you should see things return to normal.
- To make sure that it doesn’t happen again go to Settings > General > Accessibility and turn Zoom off.
How To Fix Your iPhone That won’t charge:
A lot of folks encounter this ongoing problem where they can’t charge their iPhone while it’s being charged. Below, the publication site gives users a long method that is said to fix the charging issue.
- Make sure that you are using the cable and wall charger that came with your iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus. If the charger or cable you’re trying to use isn’t Apple certified then that could be your problem right there.
- Try using a different wall socket, a different cable, and a different charger.
- Take a look at the connector on your cable and the port on your iPhone. Make sure that they’re clean and free of dust. You can blow or blast a little compressed air into the port to clean it out.
- There are reports that if you keep your Lightning cable in a humid or wet environment the connector can get corroded. If it’s wet then you should never plug it in because you could also damage the port on the iPhone. If it looks corroded or there’s something on the connectors that you can’t remove with a microfiber cloth then it’s worth taking the cable into an Apple Store to show them, they may just give you a replacement.
- Try resetting your device while it’s plugged into the charger by holding down the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for 10 seconds or so until the Apple logo appears.
Fixing Bluetooth That Won’t Work:
Connecting with any device has always been a problem, whether it deals with actual wires you need to link to another device or connecting wirelessly to another device, but we got a solution to fix this problem thanks to Digital Trends — who also posted a link at the second step that teaches folks how to factory reset.
- You should delete all pairings from your car or other Bluetooth device. Now go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings on your iPhone. Now hold down the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together until you see the Apple logo on your iPhone. Make sure your car or device is discoverable, and try setting up the connection from scratch.
- Some people reported success after a factory reset. Check out how to factory reset an iPhone.
Fixing Red Screen Problem:
And lastly, the final problem, the red screen. A list of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus users have experienced this dreadful problem. It first appears after the Apple logo displays on your screen and usually flashes or generates an infinite red screen. There aren’t many solutions to this problem, but we found some thanks to the publication site, hopefully this method below will help.
- There’s a possibility this is a software issue, maybe something to do with a corrupted backup. You can try the restore process to fix it. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button to turn your iPhone 6 off. Make sure that your computer is running the latest version of iTunes and plug your iPhone in with the USB cable. Now hold down the Sleep/Wake and Homebuttons for a few seconds, when the device comes on let go of the Sleep/Wake button, but keep holding down the Home button. You should get the Connect to iTunes screen and you can let go of the Home button. Follow the restore procedure through iTunes.
- It’s also possible that this is a hardware failure of some kind and in that case you’re going to have to contact Apple or visit an Apple Store and arrange a replacement. It can help to record the red screen using another device and take that with you, just in case your iPhone 6 decides not to perform when you take it in for an assessment.
if that doesn’t work, the source posted up an alternative version for folks to try.
- Try holding down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for 10 seconds and you should see the Apple logo. In some cases the iPhone will restart normally.
