Using Apple’s technology, an unpleasant situation often occurs when your iPhone turned off and does not turn on. A similar version of events applies not only to iPhone smartphones, but also to the popular iPad line of tablets. In these cases, you should not sound the alarm in advance, get upset, worry, and even more so bring the apple gadget to a special service center. To get started, calm down, carefully consider your actions and follow the instructions below.
In the vast majority of cases, a number of similar situations are not even a breakdown, just the device stopped responding to button presses and does not turn on. Use two universal methods that will make your device work.
By the way, we recommend an equally interesting and useful article – what to do if iPhone sound does not work?
The main two reasons why iPhone turns off and refuses to work, is either a low battery in the smartphone, or a banal system hang, which recently has been happening more and more often with Apple technology.
These problems do not relate to hardware or software errors, for the solution of which it is necessary to carry the device to specialists or repair technicians.
You can solve the problem yourself by connecting the phone to the charger and leaving it in a calm state on charging for 10 – 15 minutes. On the black screen of the gadget, the battery icon should light up. This means that the battery of the device is completely discharged and you need to wait a bit. After the specified time, try turning on the smartphone without disconnecting the device from the wall outlet.
If the reason is that your iPhone or iPad is frozen, you must perform a forced reboot of the system.
Dark screen and iPhone does not turn on – does not respond to button presses
The option when the iPhone does not turn on and, moreover, does not respond to the actions of the buttons, has recently been quite common in phones and tablets of the "apple" company.
The standard situation is as follows: the iPhone or iPad devices were not used for a long time, while the device was fully charged. At one point, for reasons incomprehensible to you, the gadget turned off, and no longer wants to turn on. At the same time, pressing the start button of a smartphone or tablet, the screen does not light up. What to do and what if the iPhone or tablet does not turn on?
The main thing – do not succumb to panic. This is not a big deal and dangerous, since mobile devices can go into “save mode” from time to time, which is similar to the indicated signs, especially when the gadget is rarely rebooted and used.
A universal way to "resuscitate" an iPhone or tablet iPad
If your iPhone or tablet, the iPad charges but does not turn on, use a simple sequence of actions that is suitable for most models of the manufacturer, and will help to “reanimate” a hung device: hold down and simultaneously hold the “Power” keys and the “Home” button for 10 to 20 seconds. As a result, the logo in the form of an apple should light up on the screen of the gadget, and the download of the device will continue.
These instructions apply to the following gadgets from the manufacturer:
- iPhone 2G;
- iPhone 3G
- iPhone 3Gs;
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 4s
- iPhone 5
- iPhone 5c
- iPhone 5s
- iPhone 6/6 Plus;
- iPhone 6s / 6s Plus;
- iPhone SE;
- Any version of the tablet iPad.
If the iPhone still does not turn on, the apple burns and the screen goes blank, most likely the error is more serious, hardware or software. In this case, you must either change the charger or phone battery. You can do this at a branded service center.
Method for new versions of iPhone 7 / iPhone 7 Plus smartphones
The option to include new Apple smartphones, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus is slightly different from the universal method. This is due to the fact that the "sevens" instead of a mechanical button, built-in touch key "Home". By simultaneously pressing and holding the “On” buttons and volume down keys for 10 to 20 seconds, the user engages in a special wake-up mode for the telephone. The company logo will appear on the display, and the device will boot normally.
Quite often, a mobile gadget may freeze during one of the programs that caused the iOS system to malfunction. In this case, the buttons do not work, and by analogy with the previous situation, you must start the process of forcing the phone to restart.
The above examples constantly arise with most device makers. The list of instructions is resolved by the overwhelming number of them, but if you are out of luck and the device still does not want to boot, then it looks like you might encounter one of the following problems:
Most of the described defects and situations considered may not appear in the work of the gadget. Each user has the right to personally decide what to do in a given situation.
