To turn off iPhone X, you need to use two physical buttons on your device. Unlike other iPhones, the iPhone X doesn’t get power off with a single button as the side button is loaded with more responsibility of invoking Siri, launching Apple Pay, and activating SOS. As a new user, anybody would wonder how to turn off your iPhone X.
This tutorial tells you the way you can shut down your iPhone X with the help of physical buttons and the soft shut-down. It is a good habit to turn off your iPhone when you go to sleep as this will give your device some rest and at the same time, it will fix some minor bugs your device encounters in a day. Remember, when your iPhone X gets frozen and unresponsive, you may need to restart or force restart your iPhone X.
How to Shutdown or Turn off iPhone X
The difference between restart and force restart has long been cleared as when you restart your iPhone, you don’t need to press side button twice. While you shut down your iPhone, you need to press that power button when your phone screen goes blank.
Step #1: Take your iPhone X in your hands and press and hold the Side button and one of the volume buttons (turn up or down) simultaneously. (Jump to this post if iPhone X side button is not working)
Step #2: You can see a slider “slide to power off” on your phone screen.
Step #3: Now, simply drag that slider from left to right to turn off your iPhone X.
After a couple of seconds, you can turn on your iPhone X; just press and hold the side button again until you see Apple logo on your phone’s screen. (You can also check this guide if your iPhone is stuck on Apple Logo while doing this.)
How to Power Off iPhone X Without Using Physical Side Button
If your iPhone X is running iOS 11, you can easily turn off your device without using side button. As a matter of fact, iOS 11 enables users to switch off other iPhones like iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 7.
Step #1: Open Settings on your iPhone.
Step #2: Now tap on General.
Step #3: Simply scroll down to the bottom and tap on Shut Down.
This will bring up a slider on your phone screen; simply swipe from left to right on the slider and your iPhone X will be shut down quickly. To switch on your phone, press and hold the side button.
