    I’ve been trying to restart my iPhone X since yesterday night… doing it the way I always do (volume up or down and hold side button) and NOTHING. I just came to look for help online and all the same thing. BUT I found your way… and I got my phone back!!!! It was frozen on the same screens, unresponsive. THANK YOU!!!

You saved my day. My iphoneX did not respond to anything after connect with the itune. I tried to shut down by holding volume up/down + side button but it didn’t work. So I tried your method and it worked!!! Thank you so much

No, it will only reboot the operating system. Your data and settings will persist.
