Apple iPhone 7 And iPhone 7 Plus: Turn Safe Mode ON And OFF

Safe Mode is an operating system mode on Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus phones. When your phone boots to Safe Mode, it runs only the basic operating system and the preinstalled Apple apps. All third-party apps are disabled and don’t run. So why would you want to run your phone in this mode? Well, if you run into a software problem with a new application, it might make your phone unstable or non-functional, even to the point that you can’t uninstall the troublesome app. Safe mode allows you to get back onto your phone and uninstall third-party programs that might be causing you severe problems. In this article, I will show you how to activate Safe Mode on your Apple iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus.

  1. Hold the power and Home buttons until the screen goes black.
  2. Continue to hold the power button but remove your finger from the Home button.
  3. Once you see the Apple logo, hold the volume up button until the springboard loads.

It’s important to note that if your Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is in Safe Mode, this will disable all third-party services and apps until the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is out of Safe Mode. This allows you to get into the device quickly, enable or disable whatever you need to, then restart.
