How to Reset an iPhone

I’ve been using my iPhone for the past three days and have had to reset it three times so far. Of course I didn’t bother to learn how to reset my iPhone until it was too late. Save yourself some trouble and memorize the iPhone reset keystrokes below.

I brought my wife shopping yesterday and thought I’d be able to entertain myself with my new iPhone. As I opened a page in Safari, my iPhone just quit working. I punched and prodded at the power button, home button and even the volume buttons for several minutes in an attempt to reset it. No luck- I was stuck watching her try on dozens of pairs of shoes for the next hour without being able to escape into my email and videos.

Our next stop was the Apple Store in San Francisco, where a Genius promptly apologized for my troubles and told me there are three ways to reset an iPhone.

1) If an application (such as Safari) is frozen, just press and hold the iPhone’s home button for about 5 seconds, or until the home screen shows up. (This didn’t work for my iPhone so we had to perform a soft reset).

2) To perform a soft reset, press and hold the iPhone’s Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for several seconds, or until you see the apple logo on the screen. (This action did reset my iPhone and I was very happy at this point). The guys that helped me said that continually performing soft resets can cause problems however.

3) Hard resets are not recommended, but are required when a soft reset won’t do the trick. The Apple Geniuses wouldn’t tell me the key combo to perform a hard reset because it restores the iPhone to a state that’s unusable. Users risk losing data and you must synch your iPhone with iTunes to make it function after a hard reset.

update: Here’s a video I recorded while my iPhone was stuck and before I learned how to reset it. I suggest all iPhone users memorize the reset process so they can avoid frustrating experiences like this.

It ends up my iPhone was a bad apple (pun intended) and had to be replaced. Fortunately, the service at the SF apple store is excellent and my new iPhone has been trouble free. Oh yeah just received an email from a friend and wanted to clarify that in the video I said ‘Apple- this sucks’ not ‘Apple sucks.’

    After multiple soft resets failed to “fix” the device. The next level of reset is to turn off the device and hold the sleep/wake button (only) for approximately 10 seconds. The iPhone will show the Apple logo, then blank screen, the attempt to boot again.

      I bought a iphone was already unlocked. Not to sure how this stuff all works but, while downloading something off of cydia something happened and now on the 3d page of my apps there is a app called terminal I can’t get rid of it and the cydia app no longer works, it tries to load then just goes back to my home page. Can I fix this without resetting with itunes? If I reset with itunes I will lose stuff I downloaded and then the phone will no longer be unbroken is that right? Can anyone help me?

    You might want to shorten your iPhone’s Auto-Lock settings to 1 minute to help keep it locked up. Go to your iPhone’s home screen-> Settings->General–> Auto-Lock.

      same prob, called apple- they cann either fed-ex u a new one or go to the apple store and they will give you a new one… it sounds like a hardware problem, not software or recent update… if u can still hear the sounds of clicking and alerts (like a text message) its a hardware problem and they should replace it…

    Reggie, try plugging your iPhone into your computer to see if it will charge. If it charges up a bit, see if it will sync. Cancel the sync and perform a restore in iTunes.
    If all else fails, it’s time for a trip to the Apple store :-(

  • Xavier says:

    Katrina,
    Not sure what’s going on with your iPhone, but it’s definitely not normal. The IMEI is the unique number that identifies your handset to wireless carriers, in this case AT&T.
    For some reason iTunes thinks your iPhone isn’t the same one that you originally set up. If iTunes will let you, try restoring your phone.
    Will the phone work while it’s plugged in?
    It may be time for an exchange.

    I had the same problem (IMEI error). To fix it, I had to delete the files in the Lockdown directory (on my mac in my homedirectory/Library/Lockdown, not sure where it is on windows), re-run itunes, click past the error, quit itunes, re-run independence, then re-run activate and jailbreak again. Worked like a charm.

    Arvind, what happens when you click on SMS from the home screen on your iPhone?
    What happens when you plug your iPhone into your notebook?
    Is your iPhone stock (i.e. no modifications, unlocking, etc.?).
    As a starting point, make sure you have the latest versions of iTunes and the iPhone Firmware.

    Argh, I’ve iBricked my phone.

    It crashed using Installer, and home button did not work, no power.

    I tried using Dock to switch to another proggy, which half-worked… before crashing with Dock on top of installer.

    Now nothing works.

    Including the suggested soft reset.

    It reboots, then goes to a sequence of apple logo, then 2 images showing what happens before I turned it off.

    I then tried holding power down after reboot as well for ten seconds.

    After a couple of soft resets, i removed the sim and tried again.

    Help! I have an unlocked iPhone and it sorta died on me. It is stuck on the blank screen and Apple logo and I’ve tried soft reset but all it does is turn off the phone. Don’t see any red slider to power off or anything except the white Apple logo. ITunes recognizes the phone. I tried syncing it and iTunes says its done it. But the screen still has the Apple logo only. What can I do to fix this? Please help.

    I have been having a problem with certain pop-up screens and resetting the iPhone has not helped this.

    For instance when I try to clear all deleted messages, a popup appears to confirm, but the clear all button on the pop up does not function.

    All other popups, the button in that particular location does not work. However the touch screen appears to work when no pop ups are present.

    Has anybody had this problem and/or know how to fix it?

    I live in Shanghai and purchased an unlocked iPhone here with Chinese. It worked great for the first month. Earlier today it crashed completely while I was listening to music ! no power at all.

    I read your comments and decided to try a reset combining holding the power on/off switch and the main menu button for about 3-4 seconds.

    Presto the white apple came back and it restarted as if nothing had happened at all ! The battery was still fully charged and all the data including the Chinese software was unchanged.

    So this seems to be a form of soft reset as well.

    Happy New Year !

    I think I might be taking a road trip to the Apple Store but the problem is, I have an unlocked 1.1.4 and itunes wont recognize my iphone and wont change plugged in the computer or the wall. The only place and can charge it is my alarm clock, but it keeps poping up like every 10 mins or so that “this accessory is not made for iphone”. Well my point is I will probably have to take a road trip to the Apple Store and i need to take the installer off and I cant do a restore in itunes, so what should i do?

    My iphone is 1 week old.My screen froze yesterday and I did a hard reset.I didnt know about the soft reset till I read this blog yesterday.I was worried sick for an hour trying to reset it,didnt work.Then I remembered,that itunes gives an option to restore your phone.I tried that option.It took about 30 minutes and I was glad to see the apple logo again.This should be the last option you should try before going to the store.It also made a back up and restored my phone to its original confiruration when it came back up.I didnt loose anything.Hope this helps.

    i have a problem my 3year old daughter was play wit my phone when i got in the car the phone was blank but still ringing it was black i tryed everything it will ring but it wont let me answer the phone i need help!!!!!!!!!!

    • Xavier says:

      HI Adrianna, is there anything covering the area next to the earpiece? Sometimes if gunk or a case is covering the light sensor (hidden) the screen will stay black. If you have a case on the iPhone, remove it completely. Also, clean it off as dust or grease from your hands can sometimes make the sensor think it’s up against your ear. This is a battery saving strategy, but I’ve had this happen a couple of times.
      You should also check to see if the power button’s been jammed down. If it is, the phone will still ring/answer, but the button is telling the phone that you want the screen turned off.

      Try connecting it to your computer/itunes and see what happens. If it syncs you should be fine.

      Other than that, I’d suggest bringing it in to an Apple store.

I powered off my phone after installing a couple apps and when I turned back on I had this problem. I was bugging out I thought my phone was toast. I connected it, I got error message after message. Damn. I pulled it out, plugged it back, and it started syncing. I honestly nhave no clue as to what causes this. I thought 2.2 did it because I’ve had nothing but weird crazy things happening since I. Updated. Battery dies wayyyy too fast, my phone gets hot, and faster network? Haha it slowed down for me, it was the first thing I noticed. Safari crashes constanly, and my phone has crashed twice for 20-30 minutes. Updates dissapear saying all apps up2 date, and also my apps stopped working until I got an update for one l. Idk, I’m going back to 2.1, my little iPhone was working the best it has since I cracked that box.

    A hard reset is:

    Hold the Power and the Home button until you see the apple logo… then release the home button but keep your hand on the power button until it does it… Not good.. puts iphone into recovery mode.. Itunes required and data is lost.

    You will have to do many thousands of resets with this device… then your battery will die.

    i regret buying the iphone, it’s a waste of money. what i got from the iphone is drop calls, missed calls, the bettery don’t last and there’s no way of replacing the battery but to bring it an apple store and wait for 2 to 3 weeks to have it replace. the iphone is very unreliable, you got to have a back up phone to use this good for nothing phone.

    Hey anjillan looks like your issue really has something to do with the restore process.

    if you are only seeing the apple logo on the screen, it would be best if you try to turn off your iphone for a couple of minutes and or try to press and hold the home and sleep/wake buttons at the same time to reset the iphone.

    Try to connect the phone back to the computer, make sure that you are connecting the iphone to a usb 2.0 port, also making sure that you are using a good usb cable and that you have the latest version of itunes installed on your computer.

    if these steps failed then the next step is forcing the iphone to recovery mode with this being said, you will need to press and hold the home button from the iphone will simultaneously plugging in the iphone to the usb port. You should see a usb cable which is pointing towards an itunes icon. (oh oh, by the way it would be best if you have a back up of your data in itunes, so that after restoring the phone you can restore it from backup).

  • Molly says:

    I have an iphone through my work that had a fried screen. My work gave me a previously used iphone to use. I do not know how to set up this phone so that it is under my phone number. When I plug it into my itunes, it recognizes the phone number of the previous user and does not allow me to reset the phone with my number. Any thoughts on how to transfer over a previously used iphone?

    • Xavier says:

      Molly, you need to restore the iPhone. iTunes will ask you if you which identity you want to restore from.

      To do this-

      1) Open iTunes

      2) Click on your iPhone (icon in the left panel)

      4) Click on button in the middle panel that says “restore”

      That should do the trick and you’ll be up and running after it reconfigures your SIM card and copies your music, apps, etc. onto your new iPhone.

    I don’t want to sound like an ass but the terminology in your article is a bit off.

    What you did when you held down the home button and the sleep/wake button is actually a HARD reset. What you call a hard reset is just called restoring the phone. The hard reset typically works for about 80% of our issues and a restore should always be your very last option. Someone who is troubleshooting their iphone on their phone without the assistance of an Apple agent should always do a hard reset, reset their network settings, reset all settings, create a backup in itunes, and THEN restore.

    Like I said I’m not trying to sound like an ass, but as someone who works for Apple it’s a bit frustrating. Because when customers come in and say they’ve done a hard reset, because the agent they spoke to on the phone told them to, and it deleted all their information it makes it very hard for us. They’ve performed a restore thinking it was just going to reset the phone.

    Just wanted to let you know so that way if anybody ever calls in and we tell them to do a hard reset they won’t end up restoring their phone.

    • Xavier says:

    To Hard Reset ( not Recommended ) I had to do it after dropping my phone from abot 10 feet. It landed flat on its back and did not get a scratch… Im so damm Lucky! Anyway this is what I had to do

    1)Press Volume down button about 5 times then hold it down

    2) hold down home button

    3) also hold down sleep button ( top right )

    When holding all three at same time for about 10 seconds the apple should show and reset your phone. Sometimes its ready to go, but in my case I lost everything. ( not a problem ) After syncing with computer for about 30min all software, pics, contacts were back. I LOVE APPLE

    I have read almost every comment here and I guess I must have a weird iPhone! I like to do a “soft boot” when my email gets stuck. If I press the Home and On/Off at the same time, the phone takes a photo of the screen! I can turn the phone off completely and then back on and this takes care of it. BUT….IS THERE THE EQUIVALENT OF A SOFT BOOT LIKE YOU CAN DO ON A BLACKBERRY? That is, without turning completely off and then back on? I have the newer iPhone, having purchased it in Oct. 08. Thanks!

      Are you sure you’re pressing the sleep/wake button on the top and not flicking the mute button on the side? as the Home+Mute key combo is the default for taking a screenshot.

    Hello,

    I just bought my 3G Iphone for one month, I love it and it works wonders. But, something happen last night, suddenly my Iphone is keep searching for the network so I can not receive and make a single call AT ALL. All apps and Ipod is still working properly but is not Iphone if I can not using the phone right? I try to do SOFT RESET but after the Apple logo come back in, nothing happen and my Iphone is still searching the network. There is a pop up window saying that restore is needed with Itunes, I am restoring my Iphone rightnow. What really bother me is because I never had this experience before with PDA Phone which using Windows Mobile OS, I don’t touch and download anything to the Iphone, I never drop it so how come a Phone SUDDENLY will be searching and keep searching like it was BROKEN. Is it maybe I got a FAULTY/BROKEN PRODUCTS direct from the Factory and need a replacement? Is there any one got the same problem like me? Please share your experience.. Thanks before.

What really bother me is because I never had this experience before with PDA Phone which using Windows Mobile OS, I don’t touch and download anything to the Iphone, I never drop it so how come a Phone SUDDENLY will be searching and keep searching like it was BROKEN. Is it maybe I got a FAULTY/BROKEN PRODUCTS direct from the Factory and need a replacement? Is there any one got the same problem like me? Please share your experience.. Thanks before.

    I have a 3g iPhone. Today the screen turned all white. I cal receive calls on it and answer them because I know whow to slide the imaginary (now invisible) slider bar at the bottom. I’ve tried to reset the phone, I’ve been able to sync it but still can’t see anything. I’ve plugged the phone in to make sure it has a good charge on it. I’ve taken out the SIM card and also tries to reset the phone. What else can I/should I do or try? I should also mention that we live more than 300 miles from the nearest Apple store.

      @Jeff – Your iPhone 3G should still be under warranty and I highly recommend calling Apple’s 800 number.

      I’m not sure what’s wrong, but it sounds like the display is still alive and there is a software issue.

      Have you tried restoring your iPhone 3G rather than resetting it?

      Make sure your iPhone is backed up before restoring of course.

    Hi, I have an iphone 3g 16gb unlocked and had accidentally reset my iphone using the erase all settings which supposedly deletes all data and media. My only problem is that once it had finally finished the reset the apple logo continued to appear with the loading sign every 2 mins. I tried to restore it back with itunes but it didn’t work. It just keeps restarting what do I do? Please help!

    My iPhone 3Gs, 16Gb, 3.1 operating system froze out completely.

    It died when I pressed the sleep button, while the phone was recharging with a cable on an USB port. The battery was indicating approximately 60 % of charge. It has now a black screen, without any activity.

    I have tried all the troubleshooting tricks: to power for more than 10 minutes; to test the ring switch to see if it vibrates; to press more than 10 minutes on the sleep/wake button and home button at once for a hard resent; to connect to iTunes; etc.

    Nothing gave a result! No Apple logo; no boot.

    I will return it to the store for a new one, because the phone is still under the 90 days guarantee. I may consider paying for an extended guarantee.

I was so worried I had ruined it! Im pretty sure the magnetic entities in the strip ont he back of my card did something to the phone. But after reading this post i tried pushing the on/off and home button at the same time and the apple came up after several seconds:) Then I just powered it on…no harm done! Yeah!

    Thank you SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO much for posting this article. I was panicking wondering why the screen was blank — and I mean dead blank, not frozen on a page or something. Nothing I pressed was working. Apple’s website only has an “i’ll call Apple later” option, which I CAN’T DO IF THE PHONE SCREEN IS BLANK! AT&T’s website has chat till 11PM. Saved, right? WRONG! “All chat personnel are currently busy.” Translation: we are cheap and only hired 2 people to chat with customers. After hitting wall after wall, I found this site via Ask.com. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU again for posting this. You’va saved me much grief and headache. The soft reset worked, and I have my lifeline back (yes, I use my iPhone frequently and get upset if it’s not working).
