The Apple iPhone 11 is fairly new, but it’s still susceptible to freezes, crashes, stalls and all other reasons to force reboot the device. However, the iPhone 11’s reboot works in a different way as previous iPhones. Fortunately, the new force reboot command is not too complicated.

To get started, owners will need to press the Volume Up button first. Just a quick press is needed. This button can be found on the side of the device along with the Volume Down button.

Next, a quick press to the Volume Down button would be needed. These two steps are needed before the last step of the Force Reboot command.

Lastly, hold down the side button normally used to make the iPhone 11 sleep. Keep holding until the Apple logo appears on screen. Ignore the Slide To Power Off option that’ll show up on screen and keep holding down the button. This will prompt the device to force reboot and help users get the iPhone 11 out of unresponsiveness.

If the problem still persists even after many restarts, the iPhone could potentially have a defect or could be damaged and should be taken to the nearest Apple Store immediately.

So far, the iPhone 11 has yet to show any major problems after its release this month. Apple was silent about the new features and developments during the early half of 2019. With its release, Apple pushed out many upgraded and improved hardware for the device. But while the iPhone 11 may have improved specs, it’s still possible for the iPhone 11 to freeze up for many reasons like the previous devices.

However, many analysts see the iPhone 11 as a safe move for the company as the new device mostly covers hardware improvements and camera overhauls, and no major feature was introduced. So far, the iPhone 11’s new camera allows the device to take 3D pictures and adds depth to each image taken.

After the iPhone 11, Apple will reportedly add a major feature to the next iPhone generation for 2020. The departure of longtime Apple device designer Jony Ive was one of the reasons for the company’s safe move with the iPhone 11. With this safe move, Apple’s new smartphone could have been made with its reliability and consistency in mind rather than going for an experimental step.
