My iPhone 6 started to turn itself off last night, so I have let it charge all night and then this morning it was all red. My iPhone is frozen on the red screen. I have read on some forums and they call this red screen of death (RSOD). What causes this iPhone screen problem? Can this be fixed? Thanks a lot!

What is Red Screen of Death(RSOD)?

The red screen of death is a well-known nightmare for iPhone 6 users. This issue had been spread all over the internet quite some time, especially on several forum threads asking for help or solutions on how to fix this unexpected red screen iPhone error.

Fix iPhone Red Screen

When this error occurs, your iPhone’s screen will turn into red and it will reboot after one or five seconds. The process will continue to happen even though the phone keeps on rebooting itself.

There is another quite similar software error that could happen on your iPhone 6. It is so-called having the blue screen of death (BSOD).

In this case, you will get a blue screen instead of a red screen.

But for the possible cause of RSOD and BSOD is the same, either due to a defective software or its hardware components fault. The first thing you can do is to call Apple service if your phone is still under warranty.

Then you can get a replacement.

Or else,

There are also some basic steps you can try on your own to fix the issue.

And then swipe it to the right.

Wait a minute after the phone is completely turned off and then press and hold the Power button until you see the Apple logo.

Method 2. Do A Hard Reset

If a soft restart can’t solve the problem, try the next step to perform a hard reset.

To do this, hold down the Power and Home buttons at the same time for at least 10 seconds until the Apple logo displays on the screen. Release the buttons and let it reboot.

Press and hold the Power button and either Volume button until the slider appears.

Drag the slider to turn your iPhone X completely off.

Press and hold the Power button again until you see the Apple logo.

Hard Reset iPhone

As you know, the iPhone X/XS / XS Max doesn't have a home button. Can you hard reset your iPhone X?

Of course you can!

Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.

Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.

Press and hold the Power button for about 10 seconds until you see the display suddenly shuts off.

Holding the Power button and release when the device restarts.

Method 3. Enter iPhone into DFU Mode and Restore with iTunes

This step requires backups since it will erase your device and all your data and settings will be deleted completely. If you don’t have a backup, I won’t suggest you do this step to enter DFU mode on iPhone.

However,

You can definitely fix your iPhone back to working normally by DFU mode restore.

iPad, iPhone 6s and below, iPhone SE and iPod touch:

Connect the iPhone to computer with a USB cable, and then hold down the Power and Home buttons for 8 seconds.

Holding the Home button until you see nothing on the screen.

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus:

You should press and hold down the Power button and Volume Down buttons instead for 8 seconds.

Holding the Power button until you see nothing on the screen.

iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X and later:

While iPhone 8 and later device models, you need to quick press and release Volume Up and then Volume Down button, and then hold down the Power button until it goes black.

After ten seconds, release the Power button but keep holding the Volume Down button for 5 seconds.

Recovery Mode

If your device shows a screen telling you to connect the device to iTunes, which means that your device is in recovery mode, then retry these steps.
