How to Turn Off an iPhone 12
If you’re new to the iPhone 12 or simply need a refresher, turning off your device might not be as straightforward as you’d expect. In this tutorial, we’ll guide you through the step-by-step process of turning off your iPhone 12.
Whether you’re looking to conserve battery life or need to perform troubleshooting tasks, knowing how to power off your device is essential.
Method 1: Using the Side Button and Volume Buttons
Step 1: Locate the side button on the right side of your iPhone 12.
Step 2: Press and hold the side button along with one of the volume buttons simultaneously.
Step 3: Keep holding both buttons until the “slide to power off” screen appears.
Step 4: Drag the slider from left to right to power off your iPhone 12.
Once your device powers off, it will no longer respond to touch or display any notifications. To turn it back on, simply press and hold the side button until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
Method 2: Using Settings
Step 1: Open the “Settings” app on your iPhone 12 home screen.
Step 2: Scroll down and tap on “General.”
Step 3: Swipe down and tap on “Shut Down” at the bottom of the screen.

Using this method, your iPhone 12 will turn off just like it would when using the side button and volume buttons. To turn it back on, press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo.
Tip 1: If your iPhone 12 is frozen or unresponsive, you can force restart it by quickly pressing and releasing the volume up button, then quickly pressing and releasing the volume down button. Finally, press and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo.
Tip 2: Turning off your iPhone 12 regularly can help conserve battery life, especially if you won’t be using it for an extended period.
