How to Force Restart or Reboot iPhone (including iPhone 6)
How can I force my iPhone to reboot or restart?
Sometimes my iPhone could be locked up completely and does not respond at all. I tried to force to reboot by using the following operation:
- 1. Hold down the Sleep/Wake button and Home button (Volume Down button for iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus) simultaneously.
- 2. Let go when the Apple logo appears
This will usually help and iPhone will boot up. But still there are times that the iPhone fails to boot, displaying a blank black screen. How do you reboot your iPhone then?
