Restarting your device fixes many common issues.

Just like restarting a computer helps to fix many common problems, restarting your iPhone or iPad should be your first step. 
 
Here’s how to reboot (restart) your iPhone or iPad:
  • Press and hold the sleep/wake button.
    • It’s on the side (upper right) of the iPhone 6
    • It's on the top (right side) for the iPad, iPhone 5, iPhone 4 and older
  • You’ll see a red slider on your screen. Slide it to turn off your device and wait a few seconds.
  • Press and hold the sleep/wake button again until the Apple logo appears.
