Restart iPhone

Restarting an iPhone, or in this case a "Soft Reset", as it is also called, restarts the phone automatically and refreshes settings and memory on the phone.

Unlike a "Hard reset" you do not lose anything by doing it, all your Apps, Settings, Pictures etc. remain where they were before and as they were before.

It is different how it is done on the different iPhone models, so we have chosen to link directly to the Apple Support's article, that shows you how to do it. 

Force restart iPhone

iPhone 8 or later

iPhone 7

iPhone 6 or older
