With the release of iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple has changed the way users put their iPhones into recovery mode. Similarly, method of force rebooting iPhone 8 and 8 Plus has also seen a change. This information deals with how you can force restart iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
Earlier, users have to press only two buttons to hard reset their iPhones. But with iPhone 8 running iOS 11, Apple has introduced SOS feature. If you press sleep/wake button or power button for five times, SOS feature will be initiated. To avoid any misunderstanding in users, Apple has changed the method of force rebooting the latest iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.
How to Force Restart iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
Now force restarting process takes in three steps by using three different buttons on your iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus.
Step #1: Press and release Volume Up button.
Step #2: Now press and release Volume Down button.
Step #3: Finally, press and hold the side button (power button) for a few seconds until you see Apple logo on your phone screen.
Note that you have to quickly release Volume Up/Down button in the first two steps.
Since this process requires pressing three hardware buttons, you should not create any situation wherein you have to use these buttons. Remember, frequent use of hardware buttons may decrease the efficiency, and in the long run, you may have to replace those buttons, which is quite an expensive deal.
