Do you get a “System UI isn’t responding” error while launching or using apps on your Android phone? Worry not, as resolving this issue isn’t as difficult as you might think. Follow a few methods and your Android error will be resolved. Here’s how.
When your Android phone says that its UI isn’t responding, it means that your phone’s system user interface (what UI stands for) has stopped working. The user interface is everything you see when you aren’t inside an app (the system view). Several problems, from glitchy apps to outdated version of Android, can cause the UI to stop responding.
Since Android can’t kick in this element when it’s required, your phone has no option but to display an error message, letting you know what’s wrong with your phone.
How to Fix a “System UI Isn’t Responding” Error on Android
Android’s user interface errors occur for various reasons. You’ll likely have to follow multiple methods before your issue can be resolved. Here are a few ways to get your phone back in working order.
- Restart Your Android Phone
When you experience an error on your phone, the first basic fix to apply is to reboot your phone. Doing so turns off all your phone’s features, then turns them back on, fixing minor glitches with them. You can likely resolve your UI issue by doing this.
- Reinstall Your Android App
If you’re getting a “System UI isn’t responding” error while launching an app, remove and reinstall that app on your phone to potentially fix your issue. Your app may be corrupted or have other technical issues, and uninstalling it will fix these issues.
- Uninstall Google App’s Updates
The Google app is responsible for running various functions of your phone, including some home screen widgets and Google Assistant. This app’s updates may have been faulty, causing your phone to generate an error.
- Reset Your App Preferences
If you’re getting the above error while launching a specific file type on your phone, that file type’s default app might be corrupt. In this case, reset your app preferences to the default, so your files launch with your phone’s default applications.
- Update Your Android Version
Android’s operating system bugs can also cause your phone to display various error messages. Whether you experience any bugs or not, we highly recommend you keep your Android version up to date. This ensures you have the latest bug patches and the newest features.
- Update Your Installed Android Apps
Just like your operating system, keep your installed apps updated as well. This ensures your apps have as fewer bugs as possible, so you don’t run into any issues with them.
- Reset Your Android Device
If nothing else fixes your issue, your last option is to reset your phone to the factory settings. Doing so wipes off all your settings and stored data on your phone, allowing you to start from scratch.
