With the iconic Home button not finding its usual abode on iPhone X, many folks would be slightly confused about how they would be able to carry out certain tasks which were like the signature to the erstwhile button. And the chief among them could well be: how to reboot iPhone X?
As expected, Apple has made sure the transition to the futuristic smartphone remains smooth-sailing. Hence, you can hard reset your iPhone X as comfortably as you would ever want. Let's find out how it's done the right way!
How to Force Reboot iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus or iPhone 8
If you ever find your new iPhone freezing, completely unresponsive or just not running smoothly, you will be able to fix the problem (normally) by force restarting the device.
To hard reboot your iPhone X, iPhone 8 Plus, or 8 just press and hold both the side button and volume down button at once for about ten seconds until Apple logo appears on the screen.
That's it! Told you it's quite straightforward.

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.
