iPhone 13 (mini) & iPhone 13 Pro (Max) Hard Reset - Force restart

If you want or have to force a restart on the iPhone 13, the best thing to do is to use the so-called hard reset. The iPhone 13 hard reset ensures that the Apple smartphone is restarted, even if it no longer reacts to the inputs otherwise used. If the display freezes, the buttons no longer respond to inputs or the system or apps get stuck in a loop, this procedure can help. The "reset" has nothing to do with a complete "reset" - so no data is lost. Below you will find the instructions for the iPhone 13 hard reset.

Force the iPhone to restart with a hard reset

If the iPhone hangs up due to a software error or a faulty app, the screen freezes, inputs are no longer possible or everything is extremely slow, then the process described above will help. Because if the Apple iPhone freezes, is in a loop, has problems starting, running apps or other tasks, it may also no longer work regularly by pressing a volume button and side button.

There is a different trick on the iPhone 7, and a different key combination is also required on the iPhone 6s and iPhone SE (1st Gen). It also looks different with even older Apple smartphones.
