A frozen iPhone game is a huge bummer. You lose your spot and have to start a level over again, get thrown out of your enjoyment, and feel angry that technology has failed you. Thankfully, there’s several steps you can try to make things run more smoothly on your phone and prevent the game from freezing again.
Restart the App
The simplest answer when an app freezes is to restart the app. To do this, double tap your home button. You’ll be able to swipe sideways through windows of every app your phone currently has open. Find the frozen game, and swipe it up. That will close the app and restart it. Hit the home button again to go back to the home screen, and then re-open the app.

It’s easy to keep clicking “later” when an app tells you it has an update available. Forget to update for too long, though, and the app might start misbehaving. Sometimes the version you have downloaded has a glitch that the company has since fixed, therefore by installing the update the app now runs smoother.
