Welcome to this tutorial on how to turn on your iPhone! In this article, we will guide you through the process step by step. Let’s get started.

Step 1: Press and Hold the Power Button

To turn on your iPhone, locate the power button. On most iPhone models, it is located on the right side of the device.

Press and hold this button until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. This indicates that your iPhone is powering on.

Step 2: Wait for Your iPhone to Boot Up

After you release the power button, your iPhone will continue to boot up. This may take a few seconds or longer depending on various factors such as battery level and device performance. During this time, it’s important not to interrupt the booting process.

Additional Tips:

  • Battery Level: If your iPhone has a low battery, it may take longer to turn on. Ensure that your device has enough charge before attempting to power it on.
  • Charging: If your iPhone is completely out of battery, connect it to a power source using the provided charging cable and adapter. This will initiate the charging process and eventually allow you to turn on your device.

Step 3: Unlock Your iPhone

Once your iPhone has finished booting up, you will see the lock screen. To unlock your device, swipe up from the bottom of the screen or enter your passcode if you have one set up.


  • No Power Button Response: If pressing and holding the power button doesn’t turn on your iPhone, ensure that your device is charged. If it’s charged and still unresponsive, try performing a force restart by pressing and holding the power button along with the volume down button (on iPhone 7 and newer models) or the home button (on iPhone 6s and older models) until the Apple logo appears.
  • Stuck on Apple Logo: If your iPhone gets stuck on the Apple logo during startup, try force restarting it as mentioned in the previous troubleshooting tip. If the issue persists, you may need to restore your device using iTunes or seek assistance from an authorized service provider.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to turn on your iPhone. Now you can enjoy using all its features and functionalities.

Remember, turning off your iPhone is simple too. Just press and hold the power button until you see the “Slide to Power Off” option, then swipe to turn off your device. We hope you found this tutorial helpful!
