How to Hard Reset or Force Restart iPhone 13 Pro MAX/13 Pro/13 Mini & 13

You should attempt a forced restart—also known as a “hard reset”—if your iPhone 13 becomes unresponsive and you are unable to shut it down using the standard ways (which is not to be confused with a factory reset). Fortunately, forcing your iPhone to restart is as simple as pressing three buttons at the same time. Here’s how to do it.

What Is a Forced Restart?

A forced restart will cause your iPhone to turn down and resume without going through the normal shutdown procedure…. It is vital to shut down your iPhone in the traditional manner since it cleans up the environment before turning off your iPhone. Nonetheless, if your iPhone becomes unresponsive, you may be compelled to take a more serious step by forcing a reset of the device.

Please keep in mind that a forced reboot should only be utilised in extreme circumstances. Performing a hard reset on your iPhone on a frequent basis may create complications. In most cases, unless your iPhone is frozen or otherwise unresponsive, it should be shut down gently.

How to Force an iPhone 13 to Restart

To force a restart on your iPhone 13, you’ll need to hit three buttons quickly and consecutively in quick succession. When you push the final button, you’ll need to keep the button down for a few seconds longer.

Here’s how to make it: Simply press and hold the Volume Up button for one second, followed by the Volume Down button for another second, followed by the Side button for a third second. Continue to hold down the Side button until you see the Apple logo appear on the display.

It will be obvious that you have successfully completed the button combination when the Apple logo is shown. If it doesn’t work the first time, try it again since it might be difficult to get it perfect the first time.

Once you’ve reached the Apple logo screen, it may take your iPhone longer than normal to begin operating. That is very natural. After a few second or two, you should be greeted with the lock screen as you are used to.

Further Troubleshooting Tips

If the hard reset didn’t work, you may need to put your iPhone into recovery mode and then reset the iPhone using iTunes or Finder to get it working again. Remember to make frequent backups of your iPhone data in the future to ensure that you don’t lose anything.

Also, you may want to think about what caused your iPhone to freeze in the first place. If it occurs on a frequent basis, it might be a symptom of a persistent bug or a hardware malfunction. To increase the likelihood of a bug patch resolving your difficulties, it is recommended that you upgrade your iPhone to the most recent version of iOS.
