iOS 11 brings so many advancements to iPhone (and iPad and of course iPod Touch). Unfortunately not all those advancements Apple manage to tell us during their WWDC events. Most of them we have to discover ourselves. I, as technology enthusiast, like and love to explore and help to share the findings to the world. This time is how you can restart your iPhone and other iOS device easily.

Since the born of iOS back in 2007 (it was named as iPhoneOS back then) and until iOS 10, there was no easy way if you would like to restart your iOS device.
There were, however, easy solutions if you jailbroken your iOS device though but there were none from Apple.
In the past, if you need to restart iOS device, you need to basically turn it OFF and turn back ON. Many of us ended with broken power button from this activity itself only (turning it OFF and back ON).
Now with the introduction of iOS 11, Apple has finally give us, the iOS users, a way to restart our iOS device easily and won’t make Power button become faulty. This also helps for people with already broken power button.
