Simple Steps to Quickly Turn Off iPhone 11

Like many other features, turning off iPhone 11 requires you to follow a new process. Older iPhones had the Power button on the side that needed to be pressed and held until the “ Slide to Power Off ” option appeared which turned off the device. Now, this feature activates Siri on your iPhone 11. 

There’s still a button sequence to switch off iPhone 11 that we’ll tell you about along with other ways that do not require a button sequence.

Turning Off iPhone 11 Using Buttons

Apple incorporated a couple of ways to turn off the iPhone 11 using buttons— 

You can switch off your iPhone 11 by simultaneously pressing and holding the Volume Up or Volume Down button and the Side button until the “Slide to Power Off” option appears.

NOTE: On quickly pressing the Side button and the Volume Up button would take a screenshot instead of displaying the “Slide to Power Off” option.

You can also try to quickly press the Volume Up and Volume Down button in a sequence and then press and hold the Side button for the “Slide to Power Off” slider to appear. The SOS slider won’t get displayed when you use this method. This works best when you are nervous about accidentally dialing an emergency call.

Press and hold the Side and Volume Up buttons together to access the Slide to Power Off slider. To switch off the iPhone, you need to drag the slider to the right side of the screen.
