The best way to charge the device is to use a lightning charging cable and a power adapter to connect the device to a power outlet.
If your screen is frozen and the device has been alerting you that you don’t have adequate storage space, you may want to consider deleting some of the data on the device to create more storage space.
To check the available storage space on the device, go to Settings > General > iPhone Storage.
If your storage space is less than adequate you can delete some of the unused apps on the device or optimize the media files to create more storage space.
If you have outdated apps on your device, they may interfere with the function of the iOS system, causing the device to get stuck on the Home Screen.
Updating these apps is therefore one of the best ways to resolve these stuck issues. Here’s how to do it:
You may also want to make sure you are using the latest version of iOS. Software updates often come with bug fixes that may resolve this issue.
To update your device, go to Settings > General > Software Update and tap “Download and Install” if an update is available.
