Sometimes your Apple device will need a reboot. A “Hard Reset” is different from powering it down, and powering it back up. Let’s get started.
- With device screen on, press and hold both the home button, and the sleep/power button.
- Continue holding both buttons, the screen will go black, then after a moment you will see the Apple logo.
- Upon seeing the Apple logo, release both buttons, and wait for the device to power up completely.
You may find it helpful to do this once a week. In my many years of experience, I have found that a hard reset will fix the majority of the problems you experience.
