    Well, wasn’t I surprised to discover that you can’t restart the iPhone 8 in the same manner as the iPhone 7 (pressing power & down volume buttons). I tried doing that when the Skype app kept crashing after setup and discovered that the phone emits siren-like noise. I have yet to set up my iPhone 8 “as new”. Anyway, the noise scared the crap outta me.......Anyway, to reboot the iPhone 8, quickly press the Up volume button and then quickly press the Down volume button and then press and hold on the Power button until you see the  logo. By the way, you do not have to hold all three buttons simultaneously. Anyway, I hope this information is helpful to you. Take care.

    I wonder why they changed this though. It’s essentially the same phone as the iPhone 7.

    (Laughing)...without a doubt, it completely caught me off-guard. Anyway, I won’t make that mistake again.

    I discovered the same thing. That darn SOS freaked me out lol, but you don’t actually have to hold all three down at the same time. If you quick press the up volume, then quick press the down volume, all you need to do is press & hold the sleep/wake button until the Apple logo appears.

    I imagine they had reports of accidental reboots while in 5he pocket of a pair of pants, enough of them to make the sequence more complicated.

    I think they changed it to differentiate a reboot from a screenshot. Isn't a screenshot done by pressing a volume button and sleep/wake at the same time?

    Edit: It's the iPhone X that uses volume and side buttons at the same time for screenshots. Still I believe it's to differentiate the 2.
