As of a few days ago my iPhone 8 keeps randomly restarting throughout the day. It doesn’t matter whether I am opening messages, safari browsers or simply on the home screen and the iPhone restarts. Sometimes, when it restarts, it automatically turns OFF Wi-Fi and I am unable to turn it ON back again. I have already performed factory reset as well as force restarted my iPhone, uninstalled apps that I thought would be causing problem, but with no luck. My iPhone 8 iOS is up-to-date. Does anybody knows what’s wrong with my iPhone and how can I get rid of this issue.
