How do you unclog a toilet in an apartment?

Grab a large container and fill it with hot (not boiling) water. Dump the hot water into the toilet bowl and wait for it to dissolve the clog. If this doesn't work or isn't possible, grab some dish soap or shampoo and squirt some into the toilet bowl. Wait a bit for it to break up the clog and try flushing.

Furthermore, will a toilet eventually unclog itself?

Absolutely. Well, a clogged drain line can clear itself, given enough height of standing effluent. If the toilet's trap itself is clogged, sometimes, if you fill the water to near the top of the bowl it will unclog, but that would be more of a case of the water softening the stool until the flush can finish.

If the flush is weak and the waste does not appear to drain, that may mean the toilet is completely plugged up, in which case you should wait at least 10 minutes in hopes that the water level will go down so you can go at it with a plunger. Many people head straight for the plunger when they suspect a clog.
