How to Force Restart or Hard Reset iPhone X

This is how you hard reset the iPhone X or force restart it so that you can get back to using it when the new iPhone freezes up. If you can’t turn it off normally, you may need to do a hard reset. This does not wipe any data from your phone, it just forces the iPhone X to restart. This process takes a few seconds to complete and a minute or less for the iPhone X to reboot so you can start using it again.

If you run into this problem often you may need to update your apps or check for other iPhone X problems that could be causing the freezing or crashing.

Apple changed how you hard reset the iPhone X from older iPhones, so you need to use a new key combination to do this. Here’s what you need to do to fix your frozen iPhone X.

Instead of holding down two buttons until the iPhone restarts, you now need to press two buttons quickly and then press and hold a third button. This takes a little practice, but once you get the hang of it you’re good to go.

  1. Press Volume Up and let go.
  2. Press Volume Down and let go.
  3. Press and hold the side button until the Apple Logo appears.

You must press the volume up then volume down pretty quickly, but not at the same time. The Side Button is what Apple calls the power button. After a few seconds of holding the side button, the iPhone X should restart.

If this happens frequently you should try reseting all settings from the iPhone settings or talking with Apple to find out if something is wrong with your iPhone X. You have a one year warranty on all standard problems
