In this tutorial, we will learn how to turn off your iPhone. Follow the steps below to power off your device.

Step 1: Locate the Power Button

The power button on an iPhone is typically located on the right-hand side of the device. It is usually marked with a small circle or line symbol.

Step 2: Press and Hold the Power Button

To turn off your iPhone, press and hold the power button until you see a slider appear on the screen.


If you have an iPhone X or later model, you will need to simultaneously press and hold both the power button and one of the volume buttons until the slider appears.

Step 3: Slide to Power Off

Once you see the slider on your screen, use your finger to drag it from left to right. This action will initiate the power-off process.


If you are using Face ID on your iPhone X or later model, you may need to press and hold both buttons again after sliding to power off in order to fully turn off your device.

Step 4: Wait for Your iPhone to Shut Down

After sliding to power off, wait for a few seconds as your iPhone shuts down completely. You will see a blank screen indicating that it has successfully turned off.

Step 5: Turn On Your iPhone

If you wish to turn on your iPhone again, simply press and hold the power button until you see the Apple logo appear on the screen. Release the button, and your device will start up.

  • Troubleshooting Tip:
  • If your iPhone does not respond to the power button, it may be low on battery. Try connecting it to a charger and then attempt to power it off again.

Now that you know how to turn off your iPhone, you can easily power it down whenever necessary.
