My phone was fine when I woke up this morning.
A few hours later it was warm and unresponsive.
When I got to school, I did a hard reset (vol up, vol down, hold side button), and it reset.
It did boot, battery at ~50%.
Now it is connected by cable, charging, but not showing up in Finder.
Genius bar? Other advice?
If you want to try an solve it yourself, I make sure your iCloud backup is up to date and try a DFU restore. I that doesn’t fix it, definitely Genius bar.
@Wolfie Yes, functional, but not showing up in Finder.
@rlamarch Thanks. Giving it a try…
In the Finder preferences under Sidebar, show
CDs, DVDs, and iOS Devices was turned off. I must have turned it off not realizing iOS devices were lumped in.
I’ve done the DFU restore from cloud, waiting for sync to finish so I can backup to my laptop. Only 24G is used at the moment, whereas it was 114G before the restore. I hope the sync will fix that.
I think I’m back on the air…
Follow up: it’s still working. I’ve lost some confidence in it, but I suppose that’s why we can buy AppleCare.
