Dealing with iPhone® repairs can be frustrating, especially when you rely on your mobile device to call, text, and even keep track of your appointments. However, if you’re having problems with your cell turning on, you might not actually require any iPhone repairs. Before taking it in to have it fixed, try the following troubleshooting steps if your iPhone won’t power on.
3 Troubleshooting Tips if Your iPhone Won’t Turn On
1. Let It Charge
Your iPhone may not be turning on simply because it doesn’t have enough power. Plug your phone in and allow it to charge for 15–30 minutes. During this time, it may turn back on itself, or you may have to hold the on and off button to get it powered on. However, if your battery frequently drains faster than it should, you may need to visit a shop for iPhone repairs or a new battery.
2. Restart Your Phone
If charging your phone doesn’t get it to boot up, you can try restarting it. To restart your phone, simply hold the power button in the top right corner for two to three seconds. Ignore the slider that appears to power off your device and wait for it to power down. Whether your phone was off or simply frozen, this should cause the system to start up again.
3. Try a Hard Reset
Depending on the model of iPhone you have, you can perform a hard reset using one of two methods. For an iPhone 8 or later, quickly press and release the volume up button, followed by the volume down button, before holding the power button to reboot. For the iPhone 7, simply press the volume down and power button at the same time for 10 seconds. If you have an iPhone 6 or lower, hold the home and the top side button for at least 10 seconds. Regardless of the model, continue holding the designated buttons until the power off slider disappears.
