How do I restart my iOS Device?
To Reboot or Restart Your Device
- Hold down the power button for 10 seconds until the red slider appears (first screenshot below);
- Slide to power off;
- Once the device is totally off, hold down the power button for 3 seconds to turn it back on again; The Apple logo will appear in the center of the screen while it starts up again (second screenshot below).
- See if the problem still occurs in Equipd or if it is now fixed.
Cold Boot (also known as a "Hard Reset")
If you restart your device following the steps above and are still having some issues then it might be time to perform a "hard reset". This is not wiping your device - it is just the next step of a reset where it completely wipes everything from RAM so that the device has a totally clean start when it powers on again.
So … how to do a hard reset?
First of all make sure you have at least 20% power on the device. Next, instead of just holding down the power button, this time hold down the power button and the start button at the same time - and keep holding them until the white Apple logo appears in the middle of the screen (second screenshot below). Wait until the device starts up again.
