We can all use a rest now and then—even our phones. Powering off an iPhone 11 is as easy as pressing a few buttons or using a Settings option. You can perform the process even when your phone’s physical buttons are broken. We’ll show you how.
Warning: Before you shut down your phone, make sure to save your unsaved work on it.
If your iPhone 11’s physical buttons are working, use this method to power off your phone.
Start by pressing and holding down the Volume Down or Volume Up and the Side button. For example, you can press either Volume Up+Side or Volume Down+Side.
You’ll see a “Slide to Power Off” slider on your screen. Drag this slider to the right and your phone will turn off.
And that’s it. Your iPhone 11 is now powered off. To turn it back on, press and hold down the Side button until the Apple logo appears.
If you have issues with your iPhone 11’s physical buttons, use an option within Settings to power down your phone.
To do that, first, launch Settings on your phone. Then, choose “General.”
On the “General” page, scroll down to the bottom and tap “Shut Down.”
A “Slide to Power Off” slider will appear on your screen. Drag this slider to the right and your phone will power off.
And you’ve successfully turned off your iPhone 11.
If you’d like to turn on your phone with a broken Side button, then plug your phone into charging and it will power on automatically. Enjoy!
