The Apple iPhone 11 series (iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max) have been around for a while now, and aside the fact that they’re Apple’s latest iPhone flagship, there have been some new improvements especially the phones’ battery capacity breaking the iPhone battery jinx. One of the basic changes is that these phones are all-screen phones, making them only the second iPhone series not to feature the brand’s iconic home button. People that have upgraded from iPhone 8 downwards might find it a bit difficult to cope with the new features of this phone and one of them is hard resetting the phone.

Hard resetting a phone is one of the basic tweaks of not just iPhones but every smartphone one could lay one hands on. At some point of phone usage, you’re going to figure that something is going wrong and you need to do something to it immediately.

Low performance is one of the reasons people hard reset phones; the fact that the phone has declined in performance compared to when it’s new. On the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max, you could find this totally different but if you have recently used any of the iPhone X models, you wouldn’t find this too difficult to understand.

Follow this step-by-step guide to know how you can hard reset your iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max;

STEP 1: Shut down the phone by pressing and holding both the Volume Up and Sleep/Wake button.

STEP 2: Swipe to choose Slide to Power Off when the prompted.

STEP 3: Start the iPhone again by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until you see the Apple logo. The point where the Apple logo is being displayed is the point where the restart is currently ongoing.

This is Apple’s recommended method and it works very perfectly but alternatively, a brief line in the official support documents states how you can also shut down an iPhone by going to Settings, General, and choose Shut Down.

NB: You might experience slowness in this method when you’re pressing the buttons through a plastic protective case. It might take long before the Apple logo appears.

If the issue persists after the methods stated above, you might consider reaching out to Apple, especially when your iPhone is new.
