Apple’s iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max come in different sizes than last year’s iPhone 13 series. However, they still share similar design elements with Apple’s 2021 models, such as an all-screen design and no Home button on the front.
As such, the hard reset or force restarting method has stayed the same as the previous series. Still, if you’re upgrading from a device with a Home button, keep reading to learn how to hard reset or force reset your iPhone 14, as the process can come in handy if your device bugs out or stops responding for any reason.
How to Hard Reset the iPhone 14 (All Models)
Quickly press and release the Volume Up button.
- Quickly press and release the Volume Down button.
- Press and hold the Side button until the Apple logo appears, then remove the Side button.
You will see a slider to power off the iPhone during this process. You’ll want to ignore it and continue holding down the Side button until the screen goes black. At that point, the Apple logo will pop up, and after the restart, the net will activate again.
Using the force restart process prevents you from shutting the iPhone down entirely, which takes a few more steps and takes longer to boot up again.
If you want to shut the iPhone down, you can go to the General section of the Settings app, scroll down to the bottom, and choose the Shut Down option.
