Revive a dead iPhone following complete battery discharge
I guess I must have let the battery on the iPhone completely discharge, as I found it motionless and unresponsive last night on my desk. Plugged it in, still nothing -- won't start up. Left it charging overnight, still no luck. Followed the reset procedure:
- Hold down power and home buttons together until the Apple logo appears
And it came back to life. The battery was empty, plugged in, now it's charging. It's a relief, weird behavior, though, I think. I've let the battery on the other phones I've had over the years (Nokia, BlackBerry, Sony, Siemens, etc, etc) drain completely lots of times. Plugging in the charger always just let me start them up again with no issues.
