Troubleshoot iPhone Won't Turn On

If your iPhone cannot turn on, it can be a frustrating experience. However, there are several troubleshooting steps you can take to try and resolve the issue. Here’s a step-by-step guide to help you troubleshoot your iPhone when it won’t turn on:

  1. Check the battery: Ensure that your iPhone has sufficient battery power by connecting it to a wall charger or a computer using the original charging cable. Leave it to charge for at least 15-30 minutes before attempting to turn it on again. Sometimes, a completely drained battery can prevent the device from powering on.

  2. Force restart: If your iPhone is unresponsive, a force restart might help. The process varies depending on the iPhone model:

    • For iPhone 6s and earlier models: Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake (Power) button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears.
    • For iPhone 7 and 7 Plus: Press and hold the Volume Down button and the Sleep/Wake button simultaneously until the Apple logo appears.
    • For iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X, XR, XS, XS Max, 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, 12, 12 Mini, 12 Pro, 12 Pro Max: Quickly press and release the Volume Up button, then do the same for the Volume Down button. Afterward, press and hold the Side (or Sleep/Wake) button until the Apple logo appears.

    The force restart process can help resolve minor software glitches that might be preventing your iPhone from turning on.

  3. Check for physical damage: Inspect your iPhone for any signs of physical damage, such as a cracked screen, water damage, or dents. Physical damage could be the underlying cause of the issue, and you may need to seek professional assistance from an authorized service center.

  4. Put your iPhone into recovery mode: If the force restart didn’t work, you can try putting your iPhone into recovery mode and then restoring it using iTunes or Finder on a computer. This process helps to reinstall the device’s operating system, which can resolve more complex software issues. You’ll need to follow specific instructions depending on your iPhone model and the version of iOS you have.

  5. Contact Apple Support or visit a service center: If none of the above steps work, it’s recommended to reach out to Apple Support or visit Esmond Service Centre.
