Restart an iPhone X

Yes, it’s a little goofy. Think of it like the old secret codes for unlocking special characters in Nintendo games.

You must press the buttons in the proper order for iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR to get the “Slide to Power Off” screen. Here’s how it works:

  1. Press Volume Up, then release that button
  2. Press Volume Down, then release that button
  3. Press the Power / Lock button on the right side of iPhone
