Apple iPhones, iPads, and iPods are the coolest gadgets to possess. Every person on the earth cannot have the privilege to buy an Apple product as they are very expensive.

If you have it, you should feel good about it and take good care of it. If any problem occurs in your device, then you tend to become little irritable. Expensive things always come at a great price, and so is their maintenance. You can sort a lot of iPhone issues just by restarting the iPhone but sometime you may need to do some extra efforts.

If you do not possess the skills to set up the defect, which occurs in your device, then be ready to shed your pocket. Apple products are very attractive with the best and latest technology advancements.

Today we will deal with another problem of Apple products, which is how to turn off iPhone, iPad, and iPod.

Different ways on how to turn off iPhone?

You can install many apps from its huge collection and operate it with simple and quick clicks.

The features will function smoothly if the touch signs work properly. In case, your power key is not working, and you are wondering how to turn off iPad, iPod or iPhone, then you have to do it manually by going through the settings.

First, we will see the simple case of turning off using the power switch, which is available on the outer cover of the instrument.

  • Push and hang on to the Sleep/Wake key till the red slider appears.
  • Pull the slider to turn your system totally off.
  • Later, when the maneuver turns off, again press and hold on to the Sleep/Wake control yet again while waiting for the Apple logo. Leave the key when you see the Apple logo on the screen.

If your phone is not responding, then you can try to force start it. You just have to push and hold on to Sleep/Wake Home Key for another ten seconds and wait for Apple logo to appear.

The above way is an easy method to turn off your Apple device through the visible keys. In case those keys stop working, what will you do? There is another way of doing it, and that is by going through the manual settings. For this, you have first to enable Assistive Touch on your device. Follow the steps below:

  1. Unravel your iPhone and go to Home screen where all icons are visible.
  2. Head towards the Setting sign and launch it.
  3. Hit on the ‘General’ from the available list of options.
  4. Search for the “Accessibility” option and click on it.
  5. “Assistive Touch” substitute will appear on the screen. Click on this option to switch it on.
  6. As soon as you have turned it on, a gray four-sided symbol with white circle push button will appear. You can position this sign as you wish on your iPhone display.

  6. Move it to turn off your iPhone, iPad or iPod.

In the worst case, if your power key is broken or not functioning at all, then join your iPhone or iPad to a peripheral system (your Mac or PC) with a USB and turn it on.

When iPhone 5 was out in the market, Apple came to know about an issue faced by iPhone handsets manufactured after March 2013.

The problem was that the Sleep/Wake key tool was not working properly in few iPhones and users were left wondering how to turn off iPhone 5.

Apple exchanged all those iPhone 5 models with the specific problem and had a succeeding serial number. Some iPhone 6 users were also in a fix as to how to turn off iPhone 6.

Steps to turn off iPhone, iPad, or iPod through factory settings:

  1. Open iTunes on your Mac or PC and link it with the help of USB.
  2. Click on your iPhone’s title, tracked by Sync on the lower right side of the screen.
  3. Going on the Summary label, hit the “Restore iPhone” key, tracked by “Back Up” and at that point “Restore and Update.”
  4. As your iPhone resumes, track the hints to reconstruct it and choose “Restore from iTunes Backup.”

If this method also doesn’t work on your Apple devices, then it’s time to get your gadget checked from your nearest Apple service center. Before giving you device for further repairs, make sure it is ready to go for that process.

You should backup all your information to iTunes or iCloud. Delete all your personal settings by going to Settings app. Switch off ‘Find my iPhone’.

If you still see a black display and listen to the active voices or your screen doesn’t retort to any motions like click or slide, then it’s time to visit Apple Service Centre.

  1. Apple believes in the principle that the product should appeal to its creators first. The engineers who are creating Apple products actually make them for themselves.
  2. Right from day one, the mantra of the company has always been, ‘What is not easy to use is worthless to the consumer’. This is what drives the company’s user-interface designs.
  3. The company keeps things simple by having one product. For example, in phones, it is only iPhone. There are tech-savvy people who like more choices and complexity, but a majority of users are not tech-savvy, and keeping things simple for them is a plus. Moreover, if one goes to the Apple store, every staff member there knows a great deal about each of the four major products in store.
  4. In the words of Apple designer Jonathan Ive, “Our goals are very simple — to design and make better products. If we can’t make something that is better, we won’t do it.” So, Apple makes a product only if Apple can do it better. Their consistent strive to make the products better than its previous version has made them the most sought-after product.

  2. The other method is meant to bypass iCloud activation. It removes the iCloud account screen and activation lock.

The only concern will be the safety of the device.

Various tools are available these days for iCloud activation lock removal in case you don’t want to contact the Apple stores and don’t have the patience to wait for a substantial amount of time for iCloud activation lock to be bypassed or reset. These tools are every easy to use and support all iOS versions across all Apple devices. Most of the time all you need to do is:

How-to-remove-icloud-lock

  • Download the free bypass iCloud activation lock tool and install it on your computer.
  • Add the IMEI number or your iPhone device and your email address.
  • You will receive a mail with a new Apple ID.
  • Log in with your new ID and connect your iPhone on iTunes to restore update.
  • Now, your phone will work normally with the new iCloud account and if you want you can reset the iCloud password.

Apple has added this additional top-level defense feature to its iPhone to shun its unauthorized usage. Data suggests that since this feature is introduced, the theft of iPhone has reduced considerably.

The iCloud lock is a block that is created when you fail to enter the correct login details. Each iPhone has its own Apple ID and its own passcode. If you don’t get these details right then, the iCloud lock is activated. If you are stuck up in any such situation, you now know how to unlock iCloud.

And if you are looking to create a backup of your iPhone on iCloud, we have a great piece of information which is explaining to you how to backup iPhone to iCloud.

But be wary of the consequences if you are not using the authenticated activation tool as lot many fakes are available online. The Activation Lock isn't merely the lock that prevents you from getting into the iPhone, but also the fact that so much of what an iPhone does for the average user involves communications with Apple's servers, iCloud, iTunes and the App Store, iMessage, FaceTime, Siri, etc.

An Activation Locked iPhone that was hacked may operate fine as a jailbroken device, but you wouldn't be able to use any of these services without legitimately activating it, as Apple's servers would refuse to communicate with it, rendering the activation locked iPhone as little more than a hacker's toy.

This safety feature is indeed a good idea as in the case of theft it renders the iPhone unusable by the average user.
