Have y’all seen the button presses required to do a hard reset on the iPhone X (and 8/8 Plus)? Per the Apple support article on the topic, it’s volume up, volume down, then pressing and holding the power button until your device reboots.
But I have a few questions - why is it so convoluted, and why is it different from the hard reset combo that works on the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus (holding volume down + power)? None of these devices have a home button, but I don’t understand why Apple went with a different button combo on the newer X and 8 phones.
It’s not because of the emergency SOS feature either, which has a different activation method yet again. On the iPhone X/8/8 Plus, it’s the power button and one of the two volume buttons. On the 7 and 7 Plus, it’s pressing the power button five times rapidly.
Anyone else have any guesses?
