Do you think if we start with the process?
How to reset your iPhone (restoration smooth)
The easiest way to reset an iPhone is basically the reverse of turning it on. This method is often referred to as “restoration soft”, which means that you won’t lose any data, and not delete anything from your phone. The best time to perform a soft reset is when the phone is running a little slower than normal, an application is not open or functioning properly, or has produced some other relatively small problem, but your iPhone is still responding.
Step 1: Press and hold the sleep / wake button until the slider to power off. In the models of iPhone 6 and later, you’ll find the Sleep / Wake up button on the right side of the phone. On the iPhone, the iPhone 5S and previous models, the Sleep / Wake up button is located at the top.
Step 2: Swipe on the slider, then slide to the right.
Step 3: once there is nothing on the screen and turns black, press and hold the sleep / wake button again until you see the Apple logo.
Alternatively, provided that you have installed iOS 11 or later, you can go to General> Settings and scroll to the bottom where you’ll find Shut Down. When you touch Off, you will see the slider Slide to turn off. Then you can continue with Step 2 above.
How to force restore your iPhone
Another way to restore your iPhone is to do what Apple officially calls it a “boot forced”.
In addition, this also you will lose important data. It is recommended that a “restoration forced” when your iPhone does not respond fully.
For example, when the screen of your iPhone gets all in black (despite the fact that it is lit), the screen freezes or your iPhone encounters a problem during startup.
The exact way to perform a reboot or restore enforced differs between the older models of iPhone and the iPhone 7 and later versions.
In place of a Home button is traditional, the iPhones most new ones have a sensor, Home/Touch ID, which is used to trigger a forced reboot. Apple has removed the Home/Touch ID on the iPhone X in favor of the new system of Face ID.
In the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and iPhone X:
Step 1: Press and then quickly release the volume Up button.
Step 2: Press and then quickly release the button to Decrease the volume.
Step 3: Press and hold the Sleep/wake button until you see the Apple logo.
In the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus:
Step 1: press and Hold the buttons sleep/wake and volume down until you see the Apple logo.
In the iPhone 6S and before:
Step 1: press and Hold the buttons Sleep/Wake and Home together until you see the Apple logo.
What do you do if it doesn’t work? Using Force Restart
DFU means Device Firmware Update, for its acronym in English, is a mode that will allow the iPhone to interact with iTunes without loading the operating system.
If the operating system of your iPhone is in a state of failure or error and you can’t really do anything with your phone, and the iPhone does not respond fully, to enter the DFU mode allows you to restore the iPhone. This process will delete everything that you had on your device, but sometimes this may be the only way to return to give life to your iOS device.
Below, we explain how to enter the DFU mode.

What is the difference between restoration soft, forced and factory?
To restore an iPhone using the more option soft will not cause the loss of data. The same thing happens with a forced reboot, which allows you to use the hardware keys to restart your iPhone when the touch screen does not respond.
However, a factory reset is something completely different. In essence, you roll back your iPhone to the state it was when it came out of the box: delete all the content, settings and personal information from the device.
We often recommend to reset the factory settings of your iPhone as a last resort if you have problems that you cannot solve, but it can also be used when you change your iPhone, you give it to a friend, or if the phone has issues, have been lost or stolen.
However, it is not a permanent process, as a previous backup may be used to restore everything that was once on your phone.
