How to turn off iPhones with Home button

If you’ve got an iPhone with a Home button, switching it off is really easy.

You simply press and hold the “power” button until a slider appears on-screen.

Then simple drag the slider and wait 30 seconds for the iPhone to turn off.

Hold the button again to turn the device back on.

The button you need to press will either be on the top of the handset if it’s an iPhone SE (1st generation), iPhone 5 or earlier.

And it’s on the side of the handset if you’re using an iPhone SE (2nd generation), iPhone 8, 7 or 6.

How to turn off iPhones without Home button

For an Apple smartphone with Face ID and no Home button, the method is slightly different.

One way to do it is via software.

Go into the Settings app and then General > Shut Down.

From there, you can use the slider to turn the phone off.

Alternatively, you can press and hold either volume button and the side button until the power-off slider appears.
