How to Force Restart an iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus
Apple has changed the way you Force Restart an iPhone 8, and it’s important to know how it is done.
iPhone 7 series smartphones required that users press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and Volume Down button for at least ten seconds to Force Restart the device.
With the iPhone 8 the Force Restart procedure is as follows:
- Press and quickly release the Volume Up button
- Immediately press the Volume Down button
- Then press the Sleep/Wake button until you see the Apple logo.
Why has Apple made this change?
The theory is that Apple changed this because holding the Sleep/Wake button and one of the Volume buttons now activates the new Emergency SOS feature in iOS 11.
