Hard Reset On iPhone 7 – New Shortcut For Restart

Two arrows forming a circle, which stands for a resetA “Hard Reset” – a forced restart of an iPhone – can fix smaller problems faster and you won’t lose your data. The shortcut for the Hard Reset in the iPhone 7 is different to previous models though. We show you here, how you can do a Hard Reset on your iPhone 7.

Hard Reset in iPhone 7

Up until now you could press the Sleep/Wake and Home button at the same time and it would reset the iPhone. This doesn’t work for the iPhone 7 anymore.

Apple excluded the Home button from this procedure, because this button is no longer a physical button, which you can press, but part of the iPhone 7 display. Hence, if iOS isn’t reacting anymore, it won’t help to press the Home button, because it is only virtual or in other words controlled by software.

On your iPhone 7 and 7 Plus you can execute a forced restart (“Hard Reset”) with the following shortcut:

Hold down the Sleep/Wake button on the right side of the iPhone and the Volume down button simultaneously for a minimum of 10 seconds.

Let go of the buttons after the Apple logo appears on the iPhone display.

Hold down the Sleep/Wake button on the right or (until iPhone 5s) on top of the iPhone and the Home button simultaneously for 10 seconds.

Let go of the buttons after the Apple logo appears on the iPhone display.
