How to Hard Reset Your iPhone

How to Hard Reset iPhone
When your iPhone freezes or crashes, you can sometimes fix the problem by restarting it. However, if that doesn’t work, you can try hard resetting the device to restore it to factory settings and get rid of any issues that may be causing problems. Resetting your iPhone will delete all data and settings on the device, so be sure to back up anything important before starting this process!

Steps to Resetting an iPhone

Resetting an iPhone is a little different than most phones, because it doesn’t have a hard reset button. Instead, you need to use both your hardware and software buttons. First turn off your device by holding down both buttons at once for about 5 seconds: Power (on/off) and Home. When it turns off, press and hold power until you see an Apple logo appear on screen (this may take several tries). You should then be able to login with your Apple ID and password! If that doesn’t work, follow these steps on your Mac or PC: 1. Connect your device via USB cable 2. Drag downloaded iTunes/iOS restore files into Applications folder 3. Hold down Shift + CMD + R keys together 4.

Other Ways to Reset an iPhone

Resetting your iPhone will return it to its factory default settings, which is an excellent way to fix a variety of issues. One of our most common fixes is to restore a broken device that is stuck in a reboot loop or freezes regularly by performing a hard reset. It’s also handy if you want to sell your phone and return it in near-new condition; or if you’re selling your phone, we can help prevent another user from accessing personal data on your device with Apple’s Device Firmware Update (DFU) mode. Of course, one last common use for resetting your iPhone is during troubleshooting - often if apps start crashing or freezing it's helpful to wipe away their memory and cache files before troubleshooting begins.

What Else Can You Do With a Hard Reset?

Sometimes when we do a hard reset of our iPhones, it doesn’t fix whatever issue is causing our phone not to work properly. Sometimes that happens because of software problems and other times it can be fixed by replacing some hardware components. However, since we’re on a hard reset today I want to talk about what else you can do with your phone after you’ve reset it and before you take it into get repaired. A lot of people don’t realize that if your phone is bricked or otherwise dead, there are still things you can do with it beyond just leaving it alone or taking out its battery. So what should you do?

The Final Steps

There are multiple ways you can reset your iPhone. If you need a reset because you're experiencing a specific problem, see if there's an option in Settings > General > Reset that will solve it for you. For example, under Reset Network Settings, tapping Reset Local Settings and then Reset Location & Privacy will force a complete re-login to Wi-Fi networks and erase all locally stored data like passwords and VPN configurations. Should you need more drastic measures, here's how to hard reset your device: Shut down your device by holding down the power button until slide to power off appears.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Method

A hard reset (aka master reset) is a step you should take before attempting any sort of troubleshooting or when your device just isn’t working properly. If your screen freezes or locks up frequently, if your battery doesn’t last as long as it used to, or if you just want to wipe everything off your phone and start fresh, you can perform a master reset on an iPhone by following these steps

Helpful Tools and Apps

A great way to hard reset your iPhone is by using one of Apple’s own apps. Pressing and holding either Home or power button will cause a message asking if you want to shut down your device, and if you tap Shut Down your phone will turn off. However, if you hold down both buttons for about 8 seconds, a second option labeled Power Off will appear—this is what we mean by hard resetting your phone. While holding down these buttons, make sure not to force-restart (pressing and holding on/off) as this won't accomplish what we need it to do. We'll get into force-restarting in another piece!


When all else fails, you can reset your iPhone using its hardware buttons. This action erases all of your data and settings. To do a hard reset on an iPhone, press and hold down both of these buttons: Volume Up (on the left edge) and either Home or Power (on the right edge). Keep holding them until you see an Apple logo or a spinning globe—whichever comes up first. Afterward, wait for iTunes to load. If it doesn't, restart your computer as well and try again. iTunes should prompt you with instructions; follow them carefully when restoring your phone's software.
