iPhone's Phone app frozen? Respring. #

iPhone's Phone app freezing frequently? Rather than restarting (tedious and time consuming), respring by toggling bold text:

  1. Settings > Display & Brightness
  2. Toggle Bold Text
  3. Tap Continue when "Applying this setting will restart your iPhone" appears

iOS does not actually restart; only SpringBoard.app is restarted (similar to relaunching Finder.app in macOS), which generally unfreezes Phone.app as well (in some cases, toggling Airplane Mode may also be necessary).
