Does it keep saying “FaceTime Ending…” (see the image below). If your device becomes stuck and unresponsive when you attempt to end a FaceTime call, do not worry you are not alone. It seems that a lot of users are having this issue. It further seems that especially iPhone X users are experiencing this problem.

  2. This happened to me and I could not shut the phone down by cold or hard reset . It was unusual for the person calling me to FaceTime so I didn’t answer . Then I accidentally called them back and it froze on end with weird numbers scrolling past . I finally remembered that you could shut down phone in settings . I freaked out for an hour thinking that I had been hacked

  3. I kept fiddling with it and “paused” came up. I hit that twice and a red X appeared. Hitting that finally shut down the call. Jinny
