If iOS or an installed app causes problems on the iPhone 8, this can cause the device to react incorrectly and the screen to freeze. This is of course unfavourable, because the iPhone 8 can no longer be used properly. This is usually remedied by a simple restart.
But how can you do that if the keys don't react anymore? Here's the solution to force a restart on iPhone 8:
Soft Reset Hotkey for iPhone 8:
- Briefly presses the volume up/down Volume up/down button
- Briefly presses the volume soft key
- hold down the Power On/Off button until the Apple logo appears.
Your iPhone 8 will now restart. Afterwards it should run again without problems.
