Apple has a new way to force restart or hard restart the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus
Apple has a new way for users to do a force reset or a hard reset for the latest versions of the iPhone. On the Apple iPhone 7 and Apple iPhone 7 Plus, rebooting either model requires the user to press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons for at least 10 seconds. At that point, the Apple logo appears. This method cannot be used on the newer Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus because it activates the new Emergency SOS feature. With the latter, you can scroll across a slider bar to make an emergency call, or set up your phone to auto call 911 whenever the feature is opened.

With the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, you need to follow three steps in order to do a force or hard reset. The process involves:

  • Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
  • Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
  • Press and hold the Side button (power button) until you see the Apple logo.

To power off the phone, hold down the Side (or power) button for a few seconds until the "slide to power off" slider bar appears. Added to iOS 11 this year in the Settings app is a "Shut Down" option that can also be used to turn off the phone.

But... why would an iphone need this? According to all the isheep here, the thing is flawless. Never has any software glitches. It "just works".

I've never used a force restart on either iOS or Android due to a software glitch, always because of a downloaded app. It would be really stupid if some app crashed your phone, froze it, or simply made the screen go black and you couldn't force a restart to fix it. Btw noting just works, both android and ios have both had problems that a restart can't fix.

then again when I had an iPad Air with iOS 7 (prior to multiple bug fix updates), that thing would force restart itself multiple times each day

Why do you feel it necessary to defend darkkjedii the troll? I’m asking seriously, so please answer honestly.

Why do you feel it’s necessary to be a troll yourself and troll darkkjedii? I’m asking seriously, so please answer honestly.

Stop darkkjedii from trolling and watch how these forums become pleasant. That’s your assignment.

How about I stop you from trolling instead and see how these forums become pleasant. I’ll take that assignment instead.

MG, just look at how soft and pathetic he sounds. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was crying during that post.

Lmao! The way that he follows you around, post after post, and his post style, he reminds me of apple_rulz. I wouldn’t be surprised if this was one of his accounts. Dude trolls the hell out of you, but then wants to try and say that you’re a troll. Like, really?

And it all started with him attacking me. I never knew he existed, till he started trolling me, but as you pointed out...wants to call me a troll lol. He calling me a steroid abuser, loner, and I couldn’t care less. I have bulletproof skin, he has Charmin tissue soft skin...that’s obvious. I think he is apple_rulz. Once apple_rulz got limited, that account became active, and picked up where apple_rulz left off. Both accounts have the exact same posting style too, like you said.

53. meanestgenius

Exactly. Don’t know why he thinks he’s fooling anyone, but he made who he really is way too obvious.

And I’ll keep coming back. And you’ll keep looking ridiculous as you curry favor, for whatever reason I’ve no idea, from darkidiot.

Darkidiot LMAOOOOOOO! Please give us more apple-rulz.

I sure will Vetteman Vettious! I consider myself a public servant. Remember how you and your groupies used to brag about your lame (37 subscribers, WOW!) YouTube channel. Then, once a member slapped you in the mouth with that super duper awesome channel and started posting your lame videos, well, remember how quickly you shut that major embarrassment you called a channel down? Now, you have it set to private and you never mention it. That’s my ultimate goal, to keep harassing you and picking at you (remember when you threatened to “cave my chest in”? Some thick skin there, champ!) until you stop trolling. Don’t play the innocent fool, and don’t play the victim. Just stop ruining every article, once you stop, your flunkies will stop.

LMAOOOOOOO hilarious! You're Batman lol...wait Trollman. I have an entirely new channel, more videos, subscribers, and I brought over my vids from my old channel. Now what fool lol? I would never have weak fools like you and ctdog in my comment section. The floor is yours Trollman LMAO! MG...He's super pissed at me now.

66. meanestgenius

Posts: 21485; Member since: May 28, 2014

Lmao! He’s seething with anger now. He’s so hot with anger that I can literally feel the heat through my tablet screen. He sounds as ridiculous as Mr. “No Mercy” that got banned twice in less than a week. Speaking of ctdog, that’s actually who apple-rulz aka hgoering is.

68. hgoering

Posts: 52; Member since: Dec 27, 2016

No anger here. I sense you have a lot though. Go on, you and your man crush try to get me banned again.

71. meanestgenius

Posts: 21485; Member since: May 28, 2014

Lmao! Says I have a man crush, but runs around here angrily stalking darkk’s every comment. The hypocrisy couldn’t be any greater.

Posts: 30836; Member since: Feb 05, 2011

Exactly lol. He's such a hypocrite dude.

I've thought that for a while, as they are the only two that addicted to my YouTube channel.

Super pissed, more like super amused! Now you’re actually lying while trying to save face!!! There is no new channel, and you old one was such garbage even you where embarrassed by it. You’re an old man and a failure. Stop trolling, go out and try the real world. By real world, I don’t mean stalking dealerships trying to take used Corvettes for a test drive.

thats the literal definition of harassment. also borders on psychosis

Lmao! Thanks for confirming that you’re apple-rulz, and that you’re life’s goal is to look absolutely ridiculous trolling darkkjedii, for no other reason than because you’re an internet troll that secretly wants to be darkkjedii.

69. hgoering

Posts: 52; Member since: Dec 27, 2016

Uhhh, actually you’re the one that brought up darkkjedii on this thread, not me. I realize you are infatuated with him, but please don’t get so confused you lose track of what you wrote.

72. meanestgenius

Posts: 21485; Member since: May 28, 2014

Uhhhh, you’re the one that responds to his every comment on every article that he comments on. Stop with the projecting and just admit that you have the biggest man-crush on darkk. It’s ok, no judgements here. Lmao!
