    Every day.

    I have an Activator action that restarts my phone automatically every morning at 7:30am (I'm jailbroken).

    Bad poll. Why would you ever restart the phone (except for iOS updates)?

    Typically only during iOS updates, or in the very rare occasion that something seems to be acting buggy and simply closing the app doesn't work.

    Only if I need to for update reasons, it gets stuck, or some other unforeseen reason. Ninety -nine percent of the time it is rebooted for updates and that is it.

    I restart my iPhone randomly. No apparent order. When I want to restart I do.

    LOL!

    Nah, just have an alarm that refuses to go off in the AM if I don't restart. Got tired of doing it myself and already had Activator installed, so… :D

    I've been told all I need to do is cycle the alarm off then back on, but I already had this set so I left it.

    Maybe once a month but know I have gone months between rebooting. Sometime the iOS update is the only reboot my phone will see for months.

    Having no problems that would make me reboot.

    I usually turn off my phone for a few hours on Friday night and plug it in at Midnight every week.

    Aside from forced reboots for updates, almost never and I'm using a 4.5 year old 5S.

    I answered "Weekly". But it's really only when needed, which usually happens weekly.

    Almost never. Only restart when there is an update.

    TBH, more often that I used to.
    I definitely felt I'm rebooting my 6S under iOS11 much more often due to certain quirks vs any previous versions of iOS and iPhones. I understand that iOS gets more complex now, and it's about time Apple focus on patching things up instead of shoving in new features.

    Guess the poll needs an update: only after installing an update, because that's what I do and reading the thread, most people apparently.

    I usually turn my iPhone off every Saturday night so I can sleep in on Sunday morning without being bothered. I'm not important enough to mankind that I need to be accessible 24/7.

    I try to restart mine weekly. I remember reading that it's not a bad idea to clear the cache every now and again.

    I don't really restart it on a schedule. Of course it restarts when it installs updates. I will restart it myself (usually a hard restart to clear memory) when I notice something acting flaky (e.g., not staying connected to WiFi, an app not syncing reliably with my Apple Watch). A hard restart of both my phone and my watch tends to resolve most issues I encounter. About a month ago the flashlight and camera buttons disappeared from my iPhone X lockscreen, but a restart brought them back.
