How to Shut Down iPhone X

This Tutorial addresses:
  • iPhone X
  • iOS 11
  • Shutdown
  • Apple
In pre-X models of iPhones, long pressing the Home button used to activate Siri, and long pressing the Sleep/Wake button prompted you to shut down your iPhone altogether. However, in the absence of the Home button in iPhone X, the actions are now re-assigned, and different buttons or a combination of buttons are required to be pressed to initiate the processes or apps.
That said, there are two ways to shut down your iPhone X:
  1. Long pressing the available buttons
  2. From Within the iOS

  • Method 01: Long Pressing the Buttons
    1. Long press the buttons
      Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons together on your iPhone X for three seconds. This displays two options on the screen, namely:
      a) Slide to power off
      b) Emergency SOS
    2. Shut down your iPhone X
      Swipe the slide to power off option (with the Power icon) to the right. This shuts down your iPhone X.

  • Method 02: From Within the iOS
    1. Get to the General window
      Tap Settings > General. This opens the General window that allows you to manage general settings of your iPhone X.


    2. Shut down your iPhone X

  • Tap Shut Down from the bottom of the General window, and tap the slide to power off option that appears on the next screen. This shuts down your iPhone X.


    Note: If you plan to shut down your iPhone X later, you can tap Cancel from the bottom of the window that shows the slide to power off option.
    To turn on your iPhone X:
    1. Press the Sleep/Wake button once.

  • Or
    1. Long press the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
