It is commonly accepted that turning off and then on again (rebooting) a computer, smartphone, or other electronic device can solve certain types of technical problems. If you own an iPhone, the same is true for you. The iPhone can often be fixed by just restarting it if problems persist.
If your iPhone suddenly freezes and stops responding to touch, for example, you may be able to solve the problem by restarting it. Depending on your iPhone’s model, there are a few different approaches you can take to attempt and get it back up and running.
How to Restart Your Apple I Phone Using the “forced Restart” Method
Suppose you’ve run into an issue with your iPhone, and the standard method of turning it off and on again hasn’t helped. A hard reboot, or forced restart, is what you need to perform in that circumstance.
Forcing or hard-restarting your iPhone requires pressing certain buttons, specific to your device’s model. The next step is to examine the three possibilities.
- The iPhone SE 2020, the iPhone 8, and the latest iPhones with no home button can be restarted by using the force.
- To turn up the volume, press and hold the button down.
- In order to lower the volume, press and hold the button down.
- Keep the side button depressed for a few seconds.
- Hold the side button until the Apple logo appears, then let go.
- Let your iPhone restart before continuing.
