    So I hard reset my iphone 3 times one after the other. Will it damage my phone?

    If I interpret it literally, it means hitting the phone hard on the floor to reset it. That will damage it. Okay seriously, no.

    Unless you do it every minute of the day your iPhone will be fine.

    Why would you do this? What is the problem.

    It is not going to hurt your phone but rebooting takes a good bit of battery power to reboot/reload the OS.

    Apple doesn't recommend the home + power reset unless necessary. There shouldn't be any issue though but it sounds like there might be a software problem if you absolutely need to reset it 3 times per day. (That or OCD)

    Dude, your phone will be fine. But if you need to hard rest it everyday like that then it needs to go to the genius bar because that is a sign of a lemon product.

    There's a question that you haven't answered. Why did you reset it three times in a row? What were you trying to accomplish?

    The quick answer to your question was no, it won't hurt your phone if you reset it three times in a row. But the issue is the underlying reason you did it. What were you trying to resolve?

    You couldn't have possibly done it 3 times in 2 minutes, it takes much longer than that to restart, reset, and boot back up.

    Another question with a lack of information,and then the OP does not come back to explain.

    Folks should really stop responding to folks like this. They are either trolls, or somebody that posts and expects an answer in 60 seconds and then leave forever, or...???

    I am calling BS on this as there is no way to reboot the phone three times in two minutes. The OP is just pulling our leg again. Just go back and look as his threads started. No one could be that . . . . No way.

    I don't know about an iPhone 6 but you can reset an iPhone 6S 3 times in 1 minute 28 seconds.

    Just go and look at his other threads. This will give you an idea as to who he is
