    Title of the thread says it all. Jet Black iPhone 7 Plus 128gb. I've been using it for about a week, no issues. (Minus an annoying lag whenever I back out of any app.) However yesterday, I had an issue where I lose all functionality in the home, volume, and lock buttons. Today I had the same issue pop up. It lasts until I try to do a hard reset, where nothing happens for a few seconds and then everything tries to function at the same time. Volume spikes go up and down. IPhone takes a screenshot, lock screen goes in and out, and then everything returns to normal. Anyone else experience this yet by chance?

    I had this this for the first time today, I did a hard reset, even when it came back up it lagged so much I thought it hadn't made a difference, then all response came back.

    It's been fine since.

    It happened to me one time about a week ago and it hasn't happened since. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it was a fluke.

    If it continues I would DFU restore and setup as new. Sounds like a software conflict. This is particularly true if your backup was from a jailbroken phone. I also setup and new and just re-sync everything as majority of my phones were jailbroken.

    I had this today on my 7+! First and hopefully last time. I was stuck in the mail app and could only scroll up and down.

    I'm glad that I am not the only one experiencing this. I suppose I could do a reset and set up as a new iPhone to see if some kind of conflict was encountered somewhere along the way of my initial setup.

    This happened to me too! I was just stuck in Snapchat and had to hard reset to get any buttons to work. Never had this happen before.

    I think this is more of an IOS 10 bug. I have had it happen on the SE during the betas.

    When you resync, you get all the app data back? I.e., in KakaoTalk, I don't have to rejoin chats?

    Bumping this because it has happened to me probably a dozen times since getting it on launch day. I've done a full restore and set up as new but it still happens. Not all that often but it's still annoying!

    I've had this happen probably 4-5 times since I got my 7+ on launch day
