    Hi everyone,
    I saw someone on here say their iPhone likes to turn itself off frequently and takes ages to load once turned back on. I have the exact same problem, I also could be in the middle of texting, calling someone or taking a photo when it turns off. Has anyone been to get there's checked out? This started happening when my phone was only a few weeks old but it was rare. It started then happening more and more often until the point where I could no longer use the phone anymore. I also read on here that it could be a battery malfunction as my iPhone overheated a lot?
    I would like to know costs, how long it took to fix and solutions as I don't want to fork out for a brand new phone if mine can be saved.
    Thanks :)

    it could be a hardware malfunction with the battery connector internally. have you tried restoring the phone in case its a software issue?
