Performing a force restart should not delete any data, but it can be useful if your iPhone XR is frozen or needs troubleshooting.

  1. Quickly press and release the Volume Up button (1).
    • Quickly press and release the Volume Up button (1).

    • Quickly press and release the Volume Down button (2).

    I have tried this several times and all I get is Siri

    please make sure to follow the instructions correctly.

    Quickly press and release the Volume Up button (1).

    Quickly press and release the Volume Down button (2).

    Finally, press and hold the side button (3) until the Apple logo appears, and then release.

  2. Finally, press and hold the side button (3) until the Apple logo appears, and then release.
    • Finally, press and hold the side button (3) until the Apple logo appears, and then release.

    • The screen will temporarily go dark as the iPhone shuts down and reboots. Keep holding the button until you see the  logo.

    I have done this over and over and every time I hold the side button all I get is Siri. Why?

    Press the two up and down volume buttons slowly. Then press and hold the lock button for 15-16 seconds. If this does not work tap and slide the manual off button. Wait for phone to turn back on and try this again. I had this happen earlier last year with iOS 13

    Works every time for me. Just keep forgetting which button is first.

    Hold the big side button and one of the volume (either up or down) at the same time to shut off. Same for restart.

    I am updateing the iOS (I think to 14.4). It is “veryfying” since maybe two hours. When I tried the trick from seth ahmed, it triggers an emergency call with a strange alarming sound, but nothing beyond this. HOW CAN I STOP THIS PHONE? Do I have to wait until the battery is down?

Edwin - Replica

My phone was slammed down still worked perfectly until the battery died. Tried to charge it started charging then shut off and Apple symbol kept blinking off and on and now it is completely dead. Will force restart help that?

Elroy Smith - Replica

My ipad did that with the Apple logo flashing. It was the battery. It was the first tablet/phone I worked on myself. When I finally tore down my ipad, the battery was blown up. Once I changed it out, it works fine

Kayla Tobin - Replica

Your explanation through pictures is awesome. My frozen XR is now finally working.
