How to force iPhone to reboot/restart/reset?

How can I force iPhone to reboot/restart/reset when it locks up completely and does not response?

To force an iPhone to restart:

  1. Press and hold the iPhone’s power key and home button together.
  2. Holding the two keys for around 10~15 seconds until the screen is turned off.
  3. Release the buttons once the screen lights up again with the Apple logo.

Then the iPhone will start normally.
