    So, I went to update an app from the App Store... and now my iPhone is just ignoring all input on the touchscreen.

    Still responds to the physical buttons fine, though. However, while I can hold the lock button to try and power off, I still need to use the touchscreen in order to 'slide to power off.' Whoops!

    Is there a way to turn off the iPhone to restart it without using the touchscreen?

    Ah, nevermind, figured it out.

    Lock button + home button for like 10 seconds.
