No matter which iOS version your iPhone is running, you can following these simple steps to force restart iPhone SE.

  1. Press and hold the Home Button
  2. While holding down the Home Button press and hold the Power/Standby button
  3. Continue holding both buttons down for approximately 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears

Since iPhone SE has a non-removable battery, the restart process can be used to simulate a ‘battery pull’ when the device is unresponsive, frozen, or does not power on. Even though this guide focuses on the iPhone SE, these steps can be followed to restart other iPhones too, with Touch ID.
