Is your iPhone frozen and unresponsive? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered!
In this tutorial, we will guide you on how to turn off a frozen iPhone. So let’s get started!
Step 1: Force Restart Your iPhone
If your iPhone is frozen and not responding to touch, the first step is to force restart it. This can help resolve minor software glitches and get your device working again.
- For iPhone 8 and newer models:

- Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
- Press and hold the Side (or Power) button until you see the Apple logo on the screen.
- For iPhone 7 and 7 Plus:

- Continue holding them until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
- For iPhone 6s, SE, or earlier models:

- Keep holding them until you see the Apple logo on your screen.
Step 2: Use AssistiveTouch to Turn Off Your Frozen iPhone
If force restarting didn’t work or if your iPhone’s physical buttons are not functioning properly, you can use AssistiveTouch to turn off your frozen device.
- Go to the Settings app on your iPhone.
- Select General, then scroll down and tap on Accessibility.
- In the Accessibility menu, tap on AssistiveTouch.
- Toggle the switch to turn on AssistiveTouch. You’ll see a small circular button appear on your screen.
Turning Off Your Frozen iPhone with AssistiveTouch:
- Tap on the AssistiveTouch button.
- A menu will pop up, tap on Device.
- In the Device menu, tap and hold on the Lock Screen icon until the “slide to power off” slider appears.
