iPhone 14 lineup has been unveiled, and it has been received with mixed response ever since that launch. Whatever the case may be, I am sure that you have finally purchased your first iPhone device, and now you are looking for the must-know stuff for the proper functioning of an iPhone.
The iOS devices are pretty good at functioning smoothly without giving their users any errors, but there are times when you will still face certain errors like your phone getting frozen or you feeling that the phone has slowed down. When you encounter problems like this, you should know how to access its utility modes to fix these issues within minutes.
If you’ve been a long-time smartphone user, any smartphone for that matter, you would know that switching off and restarting your device is a simple way to fix most of the minor issues plaguing your device.
And that’s also the case with iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro! However, unlike most smartphones, the method to force restart or simply restart an iPhone is quite different hence why this article was needed!
How to Force Restart iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro?
As I mentioned, the method to shut down or restart your iPhone isn’t as straightforward as you would expect. Unlike an Android smartphone, where you have dedicated buttons to shut down or restart your device, iPhones do things differently.
I have already written an entire article explaining how to turn off iPhone 14, where I explained that you have to press multiple buttons to achieve it. And unlike an Android device, where there’s an option to restart your phone, in an iPhone, you have to shut down your phone and then manually restart it.
But what is “force restart?”
It is a bit different than the normal restart function, where you simply restart your phone after turning it off. Also, force restart is like a hard reset.
It’s not a factory reset where all your data from your iPhone will be wiped clean. So you don’t have to worry about losing your data when performing a force restart.
You use the force restart iPhone 14 option only when you cannot turn off your smartphone the usual way. This means that your iPhone is acting up, and the touchscreen isn’t functioning as it should. And if the touchscreen isn’t working, you won’t be able to do anything on your phone.
At times like this, using the force restart option is the only way to eliminate all these problems. So, how exactly can you force restart iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro? Here’s how:
- Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
- Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
- Press and hold the Side button for 10-15 seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
- That’s it! Your iPhone should now restart.
That’s all you need to do to force restart your iPhone in case it becomes unresponsive or slows down while using certain apps.
That brings us to the end of the article. You wanted to know how to force restart iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro, and I walked you through all the steps.
Always remember, when you are facing minor issues on your iPhone, always restart your device the usual way. Only when your smartphone becomes unresponsive, i.e., it freezes, and you can’t even use the touchscreen, use the force restart method.
Now that you know this simple method, you won’t have to panic when your phone starts acting up. You can fix it in a minute or two and continue using it as if nothing happened.
