How To Reset Your Dead iPhone X

Share This:

If you have an iPhone X, you know how powerful and versatile it can be. However, from time to time, you may encounter a problem where the device is unresponsive or appears to be “dead”. In this case, it may be necessary to reset your device in order to get it working again. This guide will explain how to reset your iPhone X if it has become unresponsive.

First, try a manual reset or “force restart.” Quickly press and release the volume up button, then the volume down button. Finally, press and hold the power button until the Apple logo appears, and then release it. This should restart your phone and bring it back to life.

If this doesn't work, there are a few other steps you can try:

1) Try connecting your iPhone X to iTunes on a computer and restoring the device from there. You can do this by putting your phone into DFU mode (Device Firmware Update), which allows you to connect your iPhone X to iTunes without having to enter any passcodes or unlock features on the device itself. From there, you can use iTunes to restore your phone back to its original settings.

2) If that doesn't work either, you may need to completely erase your phone using recovery mode. To do this, turn off your device and then connect it to iTunes again while holding down both the home and power buttons (for iPhone 8 or later) or the home and side buttons (for iPhone 7). Once connected in recovery mode, you can use iTunes again to restore your device from an earlier backup or set it up as new if necessary.

Hopefully one of these solutions will help bring life back into your iPhone X if it has become unresponsive! If none of these methods work for you however, then unfortunately there may be something wrong with the hardware of your phone which cannot be fixed through solutions – in which case we recommend taking it to an Apple Store for further help!

Troubleshooting an Unresponsive iPhone X

If your iPhone X won't turn on at all, the first step is to try a manual reset or “force restart.” To do this, quickly press and release the volume up button, then the volume down button. Finally, press and hold the power button until the Apple logo appears, and then release it. If that doesn't work, you can try connecting your device to iTunes or a computer and restoring it with a backup. If that doesn't work either, you may need to contact Apple Support for further assistance.

Factory Resetting an iPhone When It Is Dead

If your iPhone is dead and you need to reset it to factory settings, here are the steps to do so:
1. Begin by connecting your iPhone to iTunes and putting your device into DFU mode.
2. Once connected, iTunes will prompt you with a message saying your device needs to be restored first.
3. When prompted, click Restore and agree to the terms and conditions.
4. After the restoration process is complete, your iPhone will be reset to its original factory settings.
5. Finally, disconnect your iPhone from iTunes and restart it for the changes to take effect.

It's important to note that restoring a dead iPhone will erase all data stored on it, so make sure you have backed up any vital information before proceeding with the reset process.

Factory Resetting a Phone That Won't Turn On

If your phone won't turn on, you can still try to factory reset it. First, remove the battery from the device and leave it out for a few minutes. Then, re-insert the battery and press and hold the Power button and Volume Down for a few seconds until you see the Android logo on the screen. Use the Volume Up and Volume Down keys to navigate to Recovery Mode. Press the Power button and use the Volume keys to select Wipe Data/Factory Reset before pressing Power again. The process may take several minutes as your phone wipes all of its data and resets itself back to its original factory settings.
