Solution 5: Remove the SIM card and reinsert it

Phones tend to get stuck in a restart loop if the device’s connection to the wireless carrier is facing a problem. Thankfully, one of the easiest and most reliable ways to fix this connection issue is just by removing the SIM card and putting it back inside.

First, shut down your iPhone. After that, use the ejector tool (or a safety pin), which comes with the iPhone in the box, to pop out the SIM tray. Remove the SIM card. After that, wait a few seconds and then reinsert the SIM.

Solution 6: Update all apps

Most apps receive updates frequently for both performance improvements and bug fixes. The best way to keep all your apps up to date is to take advantage of the “Automatic Updates” feature (Settings → App Store → App Updates).

Check for a hardware problem

Dropping your phone a lot may also cause the iPhone to get stuck in the boot loop. If your device has recently met a nasty drop, there could be a hardware problem.

A worn-out battery may also be behind the problem. If it’s found to be the culprit, you can get rid of the issue just by replacing the faulty/worn-out battery.

If your iPhone keeps restarting while charging, make sure the Lightning port is clean. Pocket lint, dirt, and debris may have piled up over time, preventing the smartphone from charging.

So, clean the lint and gunk stuck in the charging port and then try to charge the device. If the problem remains, try charging your device with another iPhone charging cable.

In summary. If there is a problem on your iPhone, you can first try to solve it by resetting and restoring the system. If it is determined to be a hardware problem, you’ll probably repair it asap.
