How to hard reset iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus

iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus finally came out. There are some obvious changes, such as no 3.5mm headphone jack and new-added jet black shell. But there are also some changes you could only find out by feeling it. For instance, you may notice that the physical Home button on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is a new pressure sensitive button which powers a built-in Taptic engine. So how about the function?
