Sometimes, thankfully not often, your iPhone 11 or iPhone X will freeze up and the touch screen won't respond to any taps. When your iPhone is frozen like this, your first inclination is to turn the iPhone off and then back on again. However, sometimes when iOS is completely frozen and unresponsive, you can't even turn the phone off. In these rare cases, what you need to do is "hard reset" or "force restart" your iPhone 11 or iPhone X. This short guide explains how to hard reset your iPhone 11 or iPhone X. This method also works for the iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and iPhone XR.
How to hard reset iPhone 11 or iPhone X:
Briefly press and release the Volume Up button.
Briefly press and release the Volume Down button.
Press and hold the right Side button until your display goes dark, which usually takes around 10 seconds.
Continue to hold the right Side button until your iPhone boots back up and turns on again.
Remember to perform steps 1 through 3 above in quick succession. That's it. You're done, and your iPhone 11 or iPhone X should be working normally again.
