How to force restart the iPhone 7 Plus


To perform a Force Restart on an iPhone 7 Plus, follow this guide’s steps from Mr FIX Cell Phone & Computer Repair.

How to perform a hard reboot on an iPhone 7 Plus

Step 1

Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons simultaneously for at least ten seconds. This will force your device to restart.

This Force Restart process differs from previous iPhone models because the iPhone 7 series doesn’t have a physical Home Button to press down.

Step 2

Maintain simultaneous pressure on both buttons for ten seconds or until the Apple logo appears.

Step 3

After seeing the Apple logo, you can release both buttons simultaneously, and your iPhone will restart.


You have turned on your iPhone 7 Plus again.
