Update Your iOS
Updating your phone’s software often fixes common iPhone 11 problems. If your phone’s software is out of date, it can cause conflicts with different apps on your phone and stop your phone from working.
You should also check for patches released between updates, that can fix many common problems.
To update your iOS, navigate to your settings, and then select ‘General’. Select ‘Software Update’, and you should be able to choose to update your iOS immediately or later.
To update your iOS on your computer, connect your iPhone to your computer. On a Mac computer operating on ‘Catalina’, you’ll be able to update through your finder.
On a PC or on a Mac operating on Mojave or earlier, you’ll have to update through iTunes. Find your device in either, click on either ‘General’ or ‘Settings’ depending on what you’re using. Then, click either ‘Download’ or ‘Update’. Voila, you’re all done!
Downgrade Your iOS
On the other hand, sometimes Apple hasn’t worked out the bugs with a new operating system when it first comes out. In those cases, try downgrading your iOS to the last available operating system. Downgrading may resolve any issues you are having. Then, you can just wait it out!
Check Your Apps
One of your apps may be interfering with the software on your iPhone, which can cause a lot of common iPhone issues. You should also make sure you don’t have any unauthorized apps. They could also be compromising your iPhone data.
You need to go through the apps you have downloaded on your iPhone, and make sure they are all up to date and authorized.
If that fails, try removing apps you don’t use or don’t need to narrow down what might be causing the problem for you.
Restart Your Phone
When nothing else works, just try restarting your phone! Just hold the side button and one of the volume buttons until the ‘Slide To Turn Off’ bar comes up on your phone. Wait thirty seconds, and turn your phone back on.
Your iPhone 11 issues may just be overheating or having other problems because it’s been running too long.
Force Restart Your Phone
For more serious issues, force restarting your phone may be the way to go. Press the ‘Volume Up’ button, and then the ‘Volume Down’ button as fast as you can.
Hold the side button as the phone turns off and reboots.
Do not let go of the button until the Apple screen reappears. Force restarting your iPhone can help resolve many different software issues and is a good option to attempt if doing a regular restart doesn’t quite fix your problem.
Change Your Mobile Settings
If you are having problems with calling or using data on your iPhone 11, you can try fixing the problem within your mobile settings.
Switch between your WiFi Mobile Calling and calling on data, and try and turn Airplane Mode on and off. If those fail to fix your iPhone 11 problem, you may need to replace your SIM card.
Take Off The Case
For problems with wireless charging or Bluetooth pairing, there could be a pretty simple solution — take off your iPhone case! Your case could be interfering with the signals between your device and your charger or headphones.
Taking it off temporarily while you charge can help you confirm if you have a very simple problem on your hands.
Put Your Phone Into Recovery Mode
If simply restarting your phone doesn’t work, you can try fixing your iPhone 11 problem by putting your phone into recovery mode.
To put your iPhone 11 into recovery mode, you’ll need to start by plugging your iPhone into your computer. If your computer has iTunes, you should then connect to iTunes. Press the ‘Volume Up’ button on your iPhone, then the ‘Volume Down’ button, then hold the side button until the recovery screen pops up on your phone.
Put Your Phone in Device Firmware Update Mode
If all else fails, you can try putting your iPhone in Device Firmware Update mode so that you can update your phone straight from your computer. First, back up the data on your device in case something goes wrong. Then, plug your iPhone 11 into your computer with iTunes or Finder running.
Make sure your phone is off, then hold the side button for three seconds. When the start screen loads, press the ‘Volume Down’ button and keep them both held down for at least ten seconds. When the start button disappears, let go of the side button but continuing holding the ‘Volume Down’ button.
If you did it correctly, your iPhone 11 should alert you that your device is in recovery mode. It’s a little complicated, though, so don’t worry if you have to make a few attempts to get it right!

Most of your iPhone 11 problems should be addressed quickly by one of the solutions above. However, your iPhone 11 issue wasn’t solved by one of these suggestions, you may have to contact the manufacturer, your mobile data carrier, or a certified repair shop.
