If you are having issues with your iPhone and it freezes, you can easily restart it this way.

Just like taking a screenshot with your iPhone, hold down the Sleep/Wake button and Home button. Instead of quickly pressing and releasing those two buttons like you would taking a screenshot, you will want to continue holding down the Sleep/Wake button and Home button until your iPhone restarts and it quickly powers off.

If you want to keep the iPhone off, release your fingers immediately once it powers off. If you need to restart, keep holding your fingers on the buttons until the Apple logo appears. It will now start up normally.


Note: Works for all current iPhone models.

Note: This will not erase anything on your iPhone.

First, locate the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button. Using one finger [pointer], press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and then with another finger [thumb], immediately press the Home button. After you have pressed both buttons, release your fingers immediately after your iPhone screen flashes white.

To view the screenshot you have just taken, simply locate and open the Photos app. Tap to choose the Camera Roll. Locate and tap the photo thumbnail to view it.

Note: I was sick a few days prior to recording the audio, hence the nasally voice.
