Apple has replaced the physical home button on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus with a new pressure-sensitive button that powers an integrated tactic engine, so you need to learn how to reboot iPhone 7.
The latest technology in the Start button allows you to measure the pressure you put on it and provides information depending on the task at hand.
Because of the new virtual home button and how it works, the way your device goes into DFU mode or full reset mode differs significantly from previous iPhone models.
How to reboot iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus
- Press and hold the lock button on the right side of your iPhone.
- Simultaneously hold down the volume button on the left side while holding down the Lock / Wake button.
- Press and hold both buttons until the screen goes black, then turn it back on to display the Apple logo.
- Wait a few seconds for your iPhone to fully boot and the lock screen to appear.
That’s all you need to do to force your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus to restart. The method is quite similar to older iPhone models, except that this time you need to hold down the volume button instead of the home button.
A full reset is just a forced reset that is typically used to troubleshoot your iPhone, e.g. B. when it freezes or slows down until it can no longer interact properly with anything.
