How to Reboot Your iPhone 7/7 Plus: Method is Bit Different Than Earlier iPhones

The method of rebooting iPhone 7 and 7 Plus is completely new thanks largely to the introduction of pressure-sensitive Home button. Check out!


Even though the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus don’t have a whole new design to flaunt, it does have enough to stand out. The one feature that has made a lot of buzzes is the press-sensitive Home button. Now, you no longer have to click the Home button to get the job done. Just place your finger on it and you are done!

As we are too accustomed to the iconic Home button on the iPhone or iPad to easily get along with something new.

With the touch-sensitive Home button arriving on the latest iPhone, you will have to learn the new technique of rebooting your smartphone. And, I don’t think I need to explain you the need to reset (forced reboot) your device once in a while.

Let’s find out how it works!
