iPhone keeps restarting on its own…
Since the beginning of this month, my phone has been freezing randomly and restarting on its own. I noticed that many people have had this issue with Watchdog Timeouts, but my panic logs seem to be a bit different each time. The most common one says “logd” (8x/5days), but others say “wifid” (5x/5days), and “Springboard” (2x/5days). Below is a bit of the panic string, so I wonder if anyone can give me some insight! Thanks in advance!

Es esta una buena pregunta?
@taikojd, I’m no expert on panic logs, but getting many kernel panics, and several different ones, points to more than one issue.
May I suggest the iDevice Kernel Panic Log Analyzer. This is a very good tool for analysis.

Thank you for your reply! I actually downloaded this program yesterday and while it detects the phone, for some reason, it seems to not find any panic logs. Might there be some settings I need to change on the phone? Maybe the software is having trouble because of the latest iOS update? Hmm…

I have a similar issue with an iPhone 11 that I am currently working on. I am doing a video about it and post in on YouTube the following days. My panic logs are similar to yours, but my problem is that I can’t back up the device due to the restarts. I will approach it being a hardware issue and will start by replacing the Wi-Fi chip as it’s the only thing I can do without losing the data. Will update on this shortly!

hey guys i am also facing the same issue with my iphone x since a week it keeps on restarting every 3-5 mins , tried every possible hardware fix i.e: changing battery, power button flex , charging port flex even swapping the motherboard with another donor mobile but the issue still persists. I cannot backup my phone via icloud/itunes as it keeps restarting. Today just bought a new iphone 13 just to transfer my data in it but again it restarts in the middle of the transfer process. I will be really grateful if someone comes up with a solution as i am in huge distress and need assistance.

Shahmeer Jiskani, You should start your own question, so you can add your details and images if necessary.
Has the phone had any damage? Drop, liquid, etc? What does the kernel panic log say?
Take the latest kernel panic and post on fex SourceBin then add the link you get when you click Save to your new question. This helps in diagnosing your problem(s).
The power- / charge flex assemblies you tried, were they premium made or just some cheap ones off eBay, AliExpress, etc? Cheap ones tend to not have the necessary sensors, which is a primary cause for 180 second reboots.
