Wrapping up:

To force restart iPhone 7/ 7 Plus, you have to press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons for at least 10 seconds, while on other iOS devices you have to press and hold both ON/OFF and Home buttons at once.

What do you think of this new method of hard resetting iPhone? Is it simple or slightly inconvenient?

Personally, I’m going to miss the Home button a lot—not much in terms of functionality but concerning the emotion that attached to it. For years, I had seen my iOS device flaunting the shining button.

From letting me securely unlock my device to make payment, it had been an indispensable part of my smartphone. Since I’m all set to switch onto the iPhone X, I will have to learn to live without it; just like many of you.
