    How often should one power down and restart? I heard somewhere it's a good idea to power down and restart at least once a week. Can someone confirm this? Any techies?

    I just had my first crash on my 6, but now that I think about it I don't think I've ever rebooted the thing since getting it on launch day.

    I never reboot unless an issue. Maybe twice in 4 months.

    I used to restart about once a week - but as the phones and OS have been getting better and better, I now only do so when there's an issue.

    I suggest rebooting every so often. I know a few people who didn't receive some of their text messages for whatever reason, and when they rebooted their iPhone months later, the texts downloaded.

    I do it every Sunday morning.. Frees up memory nicely and can only be a good thing

    When it's not behaving as expected. For me that's maybe 1-2 times a month.

    Never, unless there is some issue with your phone. For example, I once had a problem adding new keyboards in the settings app - a reboot solved it. But if everything is working fine, I don't see the point of rebooting for the sake of rebooting.

    as others states I also only reboot when an issue pops up. It's usualy the first step in troubleshooting an iPhone.

    But it's not going to hurt anything op even if you reboot once a day lol. The 6 and 6 plus reboot so fast anyway you're up and running in about 30 seconds

    I've restarted mine once since I got the phone on release day.
