iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus practically do not differ in appearance from their predecessors. However, the Home button, which looks like it has not received any changes, is actually no longer a button. Rather, it can be called a touch surface that creates a sense of pressure with the Taptic Engine.
In this article, I’ll show you how to force a reboot of an iPhone 7 or earlier.
Reboot iPhone 7
Well, there’s nothing wrong with that, but how to force a reboot of the iPhone 7 now?
This happens extremely rarely, but still, unfortunately, it does. It happens that the iPhone freezes or for some other reason needs a forced reboot. Experienced users of iOS devices are well aware that in any incomprehensible situation, you should hold down the power button and the Home button.

But what to do when the Home button is no longer a button? In iPhone 7, clicking on it is processed programmatically, and this will not help if the smartphone freezes.
Do not worry. Apple has come up with a new combination that will restart the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus:
- Hold the iPhone 7 Power button on the right;
- Without releasing it, hold down the volume down button on the left;
- Hold the buttons until the smartphone screen darkens and then displays the Apple logo.
Unlike Android smartphones, rebooting the iPhone is not a popular procedure. And many owners of iOS devices do not even know how to do this. Nevertheless, the need for a reboot sometimes arises, for example, when there are problems with Wi-Fi, network crashes or freezing applications.
