In this tutorial, we will learn how to perform a soft reset on your iPhone 12. A soft reset can help resolve minor software issues and is often the first step in troubleshooting your device. It is a simple process that will not delete any of your data or settings.

Step 1: Press and Hold the Side Button

To initiate the soft reset, locate the side button on your iPhone 12. It is typically found on the right side of the device, opposite to the volume buttons.

Press and hold the side button until you see the power off slider appear on your screen.

Step 2: Slide to Power Off

Swipe right on the power off slider to turn off your iPhone 12. Wait for a few seconds as it shuts down completely.

Step 3: Press and Hold the Side Button Again

Press and hold the side button again until you see the Apple logo appear on your screen. This may take a few seconds.

Note:

  • If you have an iPhone with Face ID (iPhone X or later), you can also perform a soft reset by pressing and holding both the side button and either volume button. Release them when you see the power off slider.
  • If you have an older iPhone with a physical Home button, you can perform a soft reset by pressing and holding both the Home button and the top or side button. Release them when you see the Apple logo.

The Soft Reset is Complete!

Your iPhone 12 should now restart, and you can continue using it as usual. Performing a soft reset can help resolve minor software glitches and improve the overall performance of your device.

Remember, a soft reset does not delete any data or settings on your iPhone 12. It is a safe troubleshooting step that you can try whenever you encounter issues with your device.
