How To Soft Reset iPhone 7 or 7 Plus

Has your iPhone ever froze up? This happens from time to time, but a simple soft reset will fix it 9 times out of 10.

What is a soft reset?

A soft reset forcefully power-cycles the iPhone and clears all memory. By doing so, you won’t lose any data, and you won’t wipe the device. A soft reset is necessary when an application or system process becomes unresponsive or start behaving erratically. Soft resetting an iPhone solves most temporary software issues.

How to reset iPhone 7 & iPhone 7 Plus

How to reset iPhone 6 or older

If you have an iPhone 6 or older, you can soft reset it by holding down the following two buttons: Power + Lock

If you hold them down at the same time for a few seconds, the screen of the iPhone will turn black. At that point, once you release the buttons, the iPhone will erase its memory and turn itself off. If you keep holding the two buttons, you will see the Apple logo, indicating that the device is powering back up.
