No need to panic if your iPhone or iPad does not turn on and does not respond to buttons when you try to turn it on. There are two ways to quickly bring it into working condition, which we will tell you about.
The first two reasons why iPhone It does not turn on, it is not associated with either hardware or software failures. Most likely, the smartphone is simply exhausted, and it needs to be recharged, or else it freezes, in which case a forced reboot will help.
If the iPhone or iPad is discharged, connect it to the power adapter and let it charge for 15 minutes, then try turning it on without disconnecting it from the charger.
If the battery is completely discharged, sometimes after 5-15 minutes of charging, by pressing the power button, on the screen of a smartphone or tablet you can see an image with a lightning and a socket. This means that not enough time has passed since the start of charging. Wait a little longer.

Another common problem. A fully charged iPhone or iPad turned on and off. Pressing the power button does not start the device. Nothing terrible happened, the smartphone automatically switched to the so-called “save mode”, this happens if you very rarely reboot the device.
If you have an 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 or any iPad
To turn on your iPhone or iPad, just press and hold at the same time Power Button and home button for 15-20 seconds, after which the Apple logo appears on the screen.
If you have an iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus
The procedure for turning on the iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus is slightly different due to the presence of the last touch button Home. Press and hold simultaneously Power Button and located on the left volume down button for 15-20 seconds, after which the Apple logo appears on the screen.
It is worth noting the situation with the freezing of some program, when clicking on the buttons also does not help. As in the past, a forced reboot of the smartphone will help.
The above situations are standard and, as a rule, are solved elementarily. However, if the above solutions do not help, you most likely encounter one of the following problems:
- The battery or power controller is out of order.
- Faulty adapter or USB cable. Replace the faulty charging device;
- Dirty cable connection. Clean the cable connector;
- Using a non-original charging cable. Replace the cable used with the original or its MFI analogue;
- Mechanical damage to the charging connector or other mechanical damage to the device. Contact the service center;
- Defective device. Contact the place of purchase for a warranty replacement.
If, when you turn on the iPhone or iPad, it shows the apple logo on the screen without loading the system, try to force reboot the device (described above), and if using it does not work, restore the device using this instruction.
