When he finds himself in the problem that theiPhone won't turn on o iPhone shows no signs of life, you have to consider all possible solutions to solve it. Instead of immediately thinking about throwing your iPhone away, it is better to wait a couple of minutes to check that there is no cause (even a trivial one) behind the malfunction. Below we have made a list of possible solutions that have helped so many users to resurrect their iPhone. If you have such a problem with a cellphone other than iPhone, read the article: What to do if cellphone does not turn on.



1. Charge the battery

If your iPhone has always worked perfectly and has been turned off for a few hours, it is very likely that it has run out of power. The iPhone turns off automatically when there is not enough charge. In this case you will only have to connect the phone to the charging socket or to a computer via USB. After a couple of minutes it will be plugged in, it will turn on again and show the image of the battery being charged. We recommend that you wait at least 30 minutes before restarting your device and starting to use it.

2. Restart the iPhone in case of Sudden Crash

If you noticed that your iPhone suddenly crashed, shutting down and never turning on again, then the firmware has probably crashed. In this case, simply restart the iPhone by pressing the Standby / Wake button at the top for a few seconds and your iPhone will immediately restart and return to work as usual.


Note: If the device cannot be restarted by pressing the Sleep / Wake button, then try holding the Sleep / Wake button and the Home button at the same time. The Apple logo will appear on the screen.

3. Put the iPhone into recovery mode and reset the device


If the iPhone gets stuck on the Apple logo screen and won't turn on, you can try putting the iPhone into recovery mode and then reset the device. Press the Sleep / Wake button and the Home button at the same time for a few seconds until an icon with the itunes cable and logo appears. This means that you will need to connect the device with iTunes.
Connect your device to your computer and launch iTunes. iTunes will recognize the device by clicking on the restore button and you can proceed. Note that with the restore all files will be deleted!

4. Unlock iPhone from recovery mode

The problem of the iPhone no longer turning on or showing signs of life often occurs when you try to update your iPhone to a new iOS version but for some reason the update gets stuck in recovery mode. To solve this "block" you can use Dr.Fone for iOS, a professional tool to fix iPhone data loss and freeze issues in recovery mode. Download and install dr.fone iOS on your computer and connect iPhone to it via USB cable. Start dr.fone iOS and from the home screen click on "Reboot Device" to unlock it.

  • Today my Phone 6 is turned off and shows no signs of life anymore. I tried to reset it but nothing. The apple turns on and it doesn't turn off anymore. TWO MONTHS OF LIFE You passed the iPhone for the first cowardice thinking you had finally made a qualitative leap but I'm regretting

  • My iPhone X 10 no longer knows signs of life. The battery is charged but not
    The display and the phone show no signs of life.
    How can I do??

  • Please help me, I have an iphone 5s also quite new (for a year) and about a month ago, I took it to repair for sudden crash (but it did not turn on without any technique, the motherboard was dead) and just returned the phone with the motherboard fixed, everything was fine, until it rebooted several times and crashed. Except that after an hour I tried to turn it on, but it has a totally different problem: It restarts every minute or so! It ticks the Apple logo for 10 seconds and then a bluish screen (that screen that pops up when the phone appears to be off, but it isn't) until it restarts again. I can turn it off by holding it down for at least 30 seconds, but then if I turn it on it always causes the same problem. Right now I'm making it continue hoping that with light it wastes energy and therefore battery ...
