1. Press and hold the Volume Down and Side buttons at the same time. Technically, you can use the Volume Up button, too, but doing so may accidentally take a screenshot.

2. When Slide to Power Off appears, release the Volume Down and Side buttons. This screen gives you access to your Medical ID and the iPhone’s Emergency Call feature. If you decide not to restart your iPhone, keep in mind Face ID and Touch ID are disabled on this screen. Enter your phone passcode to re-enable these features.

3. Move Slide to Power Off from left to right to shut down the iPhone 13.

4. Wait seconds. When the phone is off, hold down the Side button until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the Side button and let the iPhone 13 restart.
