What does it take to scratch the glossy back of the new Jet Black iPhone 7?

The first step when troubleshooting any sort of electronic device is to restart it. Restarting, or performing a “soft” reset of an iOS device often fixes a keyboard that’s decided to stop working, a camera that won’t open and myriad other bugs and hiccups.

If you find yourself with an unresponsive iPhone 7 and attempt to restart it using the traditional method of holding in the wake and home buttons at the same time, you’re in for a surprise.

Due to the new home button requiring power to work, Apple has changed the buttons used to force a restart. You now need to hold the wake and volume down buttons at the same time. After a few seconds of holding in the buttons, the Apple logo will appear on your iPhone’s display, indicating it has restarted, and you should be back in business.
