Here’s How to Force Restart iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus [Video]
Apple has changed the buttons that are used to force restart the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. On older devices, to perform a force restart it was required to press and hold the Sleep/Wake button together with the Home button. This combination doesn’t work on the newest iPhones because the Home button is no longer a physical one.
To force reboot the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, one has to press and hold the Sleep/Wake button along with the Volume Down button. There’s no need to test this yourself if your device works properly, just keep in mind the combination has been changed.
Below you can take a look at the short video shot by iClarified demonstrating the new method of force restart.
Apple announced the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus at a media event on September 7th. The pre-orders for both handsets went live on September 9th and the official release of the updated devices took place on September 16th.
