    Hey guys.

    I was just reading an article via safari. As I was reading, my screen suddenly darkened and completely froze. After a few seconds I could hit the lock button to blank the home screen, but when I hit it again, the dark, frozen screen returned. Battery life was at 95%

    Home+Power was able to shut it off, but now it's no longer turning back on. Tried plugging it in computer, charger, giving it time, etc. Manuel restart won't work at all. Seems pretty dead.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Welcome to iMore!

    The only thing I can think of otherwise is to try plugging it in for a few hours to see if it comes back. If not, make an appointment to have it looked at.

    You don't mention which phone this is. Which model is it?

    This happened to a co-worker of mine iPhone 6 and she plugged it in to the wall (not her computer) and it rebooted itself again after a few seconds. She couldn't really tell why it happened but she was just glad it came back on. If that doesn't work, I agree with @firedept10 to take it to the app store.
