For starters you can try charging it for a while, because iDevices on very low battery levels just ignore your commands to start up. That’s due to the last drops of battery life trying to preserve your data and settings. Connecting your iPhone to a wall outlet for at least 15 minutes (or through USB to a computer for 25 minutes) should be enough to get enough juice to at least attempt the booting. If this easy first step faily, then it’s time to dig slightly deeper.
Unresponsive iPhone can be also forced to reboot with a special combination of buttons pressed. This combination is different for every model, so you need to choose the proper way of handling it.
- For iPhone 6s or earlier model, long press the home button and the sleep button till the Apple logo appears. The device then restarts.
- For iPhone 7/7 Plus, long press the volume down and side button till the Apple logo appears and the device restarts.
- For iPhone 12, XS, XS Max, XR or iPhone X, 8, 8 Plus, press and quickly release the volume up and down button respectively. Then, long press the side button till the Apple logo appears and the device restarts.
But if you really are in the very deep end and losing hope, it’s time to turn to some expert help app. With Tenorshare ReiBoot you can easily enter the Recovery Mode with just one click, so it’s viable for everybody, no matter their technical skills or knowledge. And it’s totally safe without any danger of a data loss or anything.
