When your iPhone XS or iPhone XS Max is acting up or its screen freezes, the first thing that pops up in your mind is to hard reset your phone to make it work perfectly. After getting rid of the Home button in iPhone X, Apple has changed the process to hard reset the new iPhones.

If you’re a new iPhone user or upgrading from an iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus or older iPhone model, you need to follow these steps to hard reset your iPhone XS or iPhone XS.

You will see the Slide to Power off button, but continue holding the Side button until the Apple logo.

However, there are a couple of problems with the hard reset. First, a hard reset doesn’t fix the underlying software issues that freeze your iPhone’s display. Those problems still exist and will usually crop up again if all you do is hard reset your iPhone. We recommend putting your iPhone into DFU mode to fix deep software problems!

You also run the risk of corrupting software files when you hard reset your iPhone. This is because, unlike a soft reset (turning your iPhone off and back on), the programs, functions, and applications aren’t shut down naturally when you hard reset your iPhone.

Here’s the moral of the story: only hard reset your iPhone when needed to. Always try soft resetting your iPhone before resorting to a hard reset. Hard resets don’t fix software problems on your iPhone, so you may need to go a step further and reset all settings or DFU restore your iPhone.
