Restarting an iPhone can be very helpful when it’s having some minor glitches like boot loop, stuck on white Apple logo, etc. But what if you just get an iPhone 13, and don’t even know how to restart it when you need to?

In this article, you can learn different ways to restart your iPhone 13. Let’s get started!

Restart iPhone 13 via buttons

This method is usually the most common one. When your iPhone screen is damaged, or if it is stuck due to some malware and becomes unresponsive, you can restart your iPhone via its hard buttons on the sides.

Here is how to do it:

  1. Hold either volume button and the side button for a while. You will see a slider Slide to Power Off.
  2. Drag the slider to the very right. Hold the side button until you see the Apple logo appearing on the screen.

Restart iPhone 13 via Voice Control

You can restart your iPhone 13 model with a simple voice command. This way, you don’t even need to touch your iPhone 13 to make it reboot.

Here are the steps.

  1. First, open the Settings on your iPhone and then click on Accessibility. Select Voice Control.
  2. Enable Voice Control. Once you have done this procedure, you will see a microphone icon near the time.
  3. Now go to the home screen and say Reboot Device.
  4. Finally when the pop-up appears, click on Restart

You can also enable, and disable the Voice Control using Siri. Just say, "Hey Siri, turn on voice control" or "Hey Siri, turn off Voice Control."

Restart iPhone 13 via Assistive Touch

A less-known yet cooler way to restart your iPhone 13 is with AssistiveTouch, especially when your iPhone 13’s power button is damaged.

  1. Go to the Settings menu and select Accessibility.
  2. Now choose touch, then AssistiveTouch.
  3. Toggle the AssistiveTouch on. A circle will appear on your screen. When you tap on it, an array of options will appear.
  4. Tap on this circle and click on Device, and select More. Next, click Restart.
  5. Your iPhone 13 will be rebooted right away.
