Hi Vicigers! If your iPhone is stuck, untouchable, or unresponsive, you can force restart your iPhone to turn it back on. Maybe most of you already know this, but for those of you who are new to migrating from android users to iOS, of course this information is very useful.
When your iPhone screen is black or stuck and doesn't respond to anything you do either on the screen or on the home, volume, or power buttons. Maybe you won't be able to restart your iPhone in a normal way, like holding down the power button for a few seconds like the usual way you usually do.
If your iPhone really doesn't respond and doesn't want to restart normally, force restart is the solution to restart your iPhone, in the hope that your iPhone will function normally after a force restart. However, fear not, a force restart will not delete anything on your iPhone, as the photos you just took will be safe in the internal storage memory.
We will discuss how to force restart an iPhone from the 6s series to the iPhone 12 series and all series in between. Why do we start from the 6s series not below? Because for the beginning of 2021, the iPhone 6 series and below are not suitable for use as a daily driver. So, here is how to revive a stuck iPhone with a force restart.
Force Restart iPhone 6s & iPhone SE (1st Gen)
Press and hold the power button and home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo on the screen, then release.
Force Restart iPhone 7 & 7 Plus
Press and hold the power button on the right side of the phone, while you are doing that, press and hold the volume down too. Then wait a while until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. Voila, the restart worked.
Force Restart iPhone 8, X, SE (2nd Gen), XR, XR, 11, And 12 Series
Press and release the volume up button quickly, press and release the volume down button quickly, then finally press and hold the power button on the side until you see the Apple logo on the screen appear. Then release the power button and please wait until your iPhone turns on properly.
If the methods above are not able to solve your problem. The last way is to reinstall iOS.
Reinstall iOS For Desperate Steps
Who doesn't give up hope if their iPhone lags/bugs, is unresponsive, and even stuck, it can't be operated at all. The last desperate step you have to take is, reinstall iOS.
To do this, we will briefly explain the ways. First, connect your iPhone to the computer and launch iTunes. Next, force restart your iPhone but don't release the buttons when the Apple logo appears. But do the opposite, which is to keep holding it until you see recovery mode on your iPhone screen (screen with iTunes logo and Lightning connector).
