    Hey all,

    Got an iPhone 7 128gb. I'm having an issue where my phone died earlier tonight. I plugged it in, and it started charging. Couple minutes later it turns back on. I go to put my password in and ten seconds later it dies again! Wash, rinse, repeat. This loop has been going on for the last couple of hours. Plugged it into all of my different cords with different plugs, into my computer, car.. everything! I would just do a restore but the phone won't stay on long enough to run it. Any ideas or suggestions?

    Try a hard reset by holding the power and volume down buttons in for 20 seconds.

    Can I do that even if the phone isn't on for that long? I thought the device even if it's off hard to have sufficient operating power to run the reset?

    Yes, try it.
    You can attempt it while its plugged in also.
    If still nothing you might need to get it replaced.

    I'm curious to know if you found a solution. Never heard of this issue before.
