In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of turning off your iPhone. Whether you need to power it down completely or simply put it into sleep mode, we will cover all the steps.

Turning Off Your iPhone

If you want to completely turn off your iPhone, follow these steps:

  • Step 1: Locate the power button on your iPhone. On most models, it is located on the right side of the device.
  • Step 2: Press and hold the power button until a slider appears on the screen.
  • Step 3: Once the slider appears, swipe it from left to right to turn off your iPhone.

Sleep Mode

If you don’t want to fully power down your iPhone but still want to conserve battery life, you can put it into sleep mode. Sleep mode allows your device to save power while still being easily accessible when needed.

  • Option 1: Press the power button briefly. This will instantly put your iPhone into sleep mode and turn off the display.
  • Option 2: If you have an iPhone with Face ID, you can also put it into sleep mode by swiping down from the top-right corner of the screen and tapping on the sleep icon.


If for some reason you are unable to turn off your iPhone using the above methods, try performing a force restart. This can help resolve any software issues that may be preventing proper shutdown.

  • Note: A force restart should only be done as a last resort, as it may cause data loss or other complications. Proceed with caution.
  • Step 1: Press and quickly release the volume up button.
  • Step 2: Press and quickly release the volume down button.
  • Step 3: Press and hold the power button until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
