Please note that earlier generations use a different method. You can find instructions on how to force reboot the iPhone 6s and earlier devices here.
To force restart your device, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons for at least ten seconds.
Release the buttons when you see the Apple logo appear.
Your device will now reboot.
