Older iPhone models were equipped with a power button and physical home buttons, which made it pretty easy to turn off or reset them. Apple decided to let the buttons go for its newer iPhone X in order to make a bezel-less screen. Still, the company made sure that turning off your device or performing a hard reset or force restart remained as easy as it was with the old physical buttons, although the process is slightly different.
