I tried the restart (up volume down volume then hold power) and just get stuck in a loop of the phone turning off and starting up again and sticking on the apple logo. Can’t even turn the phone off now. One suggestion I have found is to use iTunes but I am not sure when I last had a computer with iTunes on as everything is done with the iPad Pro or the iPhone now.
