We all love iPhones, and they are some of the best smartphones on the market. However, nothing is perfect, and iPhones are no exception. For example, many users had to deal with iPhones that just wouldn’t turn on.
If that ever happened to you, you already know how frustrating it is to press the power button and see that nothing is happening. However, don’t lose your hope yet. Your phone might not be broken and we have a couple of solutions for you.
Let your phone charge
Usually, even if you have no battery left, your screen will still turn on in order to announce you that you need to charge your phone. However, if the battery is completely drained, your phone won’t turn on at all. Connect your iPhone to a charger and leave it there for at least half an hour. Don’t try to turn it one until that time has passed.
If your device was hot you should leave it cool off first and then connect it to a charger. After you have waited enough you can try turning your device on by pressing and holding the sleep button.
A force restart is what will turn your iPhone back one if there was a software crash. This should help even if the regular restart didn’t work. Here is what you have to do in order to force restart your iPhone. First of all, you need to press and hold the sleep button for at least 20 seconds. This is a lot longer compared to how long you press the button in a regular situation. The Apple logo should show up hopefully and you can release the button then. You can also try to toggle the Mute switch a couple of times before trying to force restart the phone.
