I plugged my iphone 5 in my laptop and installed the latest version, then after this it has just completely froze, i can't turn it off or anything, the only thing that works is siri - also it is getting very very hot

Hold the home button and power button together and see if reboots.

It doesn't, its completely unresponsive... although I can flick between screens and the battery and clock still works.
I will take it into apple tomorrow I think

alright well its not responding how it should, the screen flicks between pages, the battery and clock symbols are accurate, and siri responds but I don't see it on the screen. None of the apps will load and i cant lock or switch it off

i presume its not jailbroken right?


put it in DFU and re-install iOS.

if that doesn't work its hardware.

No its not jailbroken
I don't really know how to do any of that if im honest, although I have tried plugging it in my laptop - no luck
I live very close to an apple store anyway so will pop in with it tomorrow
Will keep posted
