How to Hard Restart iPhone 12

At times, your iPhone 12 might encounter software or performance issues that require a hard restart. This method can help resolve minor glitches and get your device back on track. In this tutorial, we will guide you through the steps to perform a hard restart on your iPhone 12.

Step 1: Locate the Buttons

To initiate a hard restart on your iPhone 12, you’ll need to locate two buttons:

  • The Volume Up button: This button is located on the left side of your iPhone, just above the “Volume Down” button.
  • The Side button: You can find this button on the right side of your device. It is used to wake/sleep your phone and access Siri.

Step 2: Perform the Hard Restart

Now that you’ve located the necessary buttons, follow these steps to perform a hard restart on your iPhone 12:

  1. Press and quickly release the Volume Up button: Press it and let go without holding it down for too long.
  2. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button: Similarly, press and release it without holding it down for an extended period.
  3. Press and hold down the Side button: Hold down this button until you see the Apple logo appear on your screen. This may take around ten seconds.

Note:

If you have an earlier model of iPhone (iPhone X or older), instead of using the Volume Up/Down buttons, use the Home button along with the Side button to perform a hard restart.

After the Apple logo appears, your iPhone 12 will restart. Once it’s back on, check if the issues you were facing have been resolved. A hard restart is useful for troubleshooting minor software-related problems without erasing any data from your device.

Remember: A hard restart should only be performed when your iPhone 12 is unresponsive or experiencing significant issues. If your device is functioning normally, it’s best to use the regular restart option by going to Settings > General > Shut Down, and then swipe the slider to power off your device.

We hope this tutorial helped you understand how to perform a hard restart on your iPhone 12. If you encounter any further problems or have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact Apple Support for additional assistance.
