There are cases that we need to force restart our iPhone/iPad to fix some iOS problems like iPhone stuck, sluggish or errors. It is a bit inconvenient and somewhat complex to hard restart an iPhone by pressing two buttons at the same time, even worse, when the power button is broken on your iPhone/iPad. In this post I share two ways to reboot iPhone/iPad/iPod touch in iOS 11 without buttons.

Method 1. New in iOS 11: Soft Restart Button for Rebooting iPhone/iPad without Using Buttons

A new feature in iOS 11 enables you to restart your iPhone X/8/7/7 Plus/6s/6/5s with broken Power buttons. Here are the steps of restarting iPhone/iPad in iOS 11.

#1. Launch Settings > General > Accessibility > AssistiveTouch, please turn on this feature. And tap Customize Top Level Menu.

Performing a hard restart on iPhone/iPad will enter into recovery and exit recovery mode to fix iPhone stuck on recovery mode, iPhone run slow, iPhone won’t recognize in iTunes, iPhone restore errors, etc. without data loss. To my experience, whenever you feel your device is not working as smoothly as possible, just try rebooting it.
