You Can Fix an iPhone that Does Not Turn Off

  • Hard Reset Your iPhone

The first and simple way to shut down an iPhone that does not turn off is using a technique called a hard reset. This method is similar to the standard way of turning your iPhone on and off. But it is a more complete reset of the device and its memory. You do not lose any data. Follow the given below steps to hard reset your iPhone:

  • You need to click and release the Volume Up button.
  • Then tap and release the Volume Down button.
  • You need to press and continue holding the Side button until the screen shuts off.
  • If Siri engages, you do not click the Volume buttons correctly and can try again.
  • After approximately ten seconds, your device power down and restart.
  • When the phone restarts, everything works fine again. 
  • Enable AssistiveTouch and Turn Off iPhone through Software

This is most useful if your phone’s physical Home button is broken and cannot use to reset your phone. In that situation, you need to do it through software. AssistiveTouch is an in-built feature into the iPhone that puts a software version of the Home button on your screen. You need to start by enabling AssistiveTouch and follow the below steps:

  • You need to tap Settings then General and then Accessibility.
  • Then tap AssistiveTouch in the Interaction section.
  • You need to move the switch to on/green and a new icon appears on the AssistiveTouch screen. That’s your new software-based Home button.

Follow the below steps to turn off your iPhone with this new Home button enabled:

  • You need to tap the software Home button.
  • Then tap Device.
  • Then tap and hold Lock Screen until the Power Off slider appears.
  • Then AssistiveTouch toggle ON, Device soft button and Lock screen soft button highlights in iOS Settings
  • You need to move the slider from left to right to turn off your iPhone.
  • Restore iPhone From Backup

If a hard reset and AssistiveTouch do not solve it, the problem may be with the software on your phone. It is hard to figure out whether this problem is with the iOS or an app you install. The best way is to restore your iPhone from backup. This method deletes all of the data and settings from your phone and then reinstalls them to give you a fresh start. It is better to have a backup of all your data. Follow the below steps:

  • You need to connect your iPhone to the computer you normally sync with.
  • Then open iTunes on your computer if it does not open on its own.
  • And then click the iPhone icon in the top left corner.
  • Then click Back Up Now in the Backups section. This syncs your iPhone to the computer and creates a backup of your data.
  • Then click Restore Backup.
  • You need to follow the onscreen steps. After a few minutes, your iPhone starts up like normal.

Turning your iPhone off is helpful if the battery is low. Another reason to shut the phone off is if it does not perform well. You can turn off iPhone X by any of the above-mentioned methods.
