The procedure to Turn OFF iPhone X is different compared to the earlier versions of iPhone. You will find below the steps to Turn OFF iPhone X using two different methods.
Turn OFF iPhone X
So far iPhone users have been using the Power button or the ON/OFF button to power OFF their iPhone. However, the Power Button on iPhone X has been renamed as the Side Button, as it performs more functions than the traditional ON/OFF Button as available in other models of iPhone.
You can no longer Power OFF iPhone X holding the Side Button, because holding the side button activates Siri on iPhone X and Siri won’t be able to reboot your iPhone.
Hence, you need to get familiar with a new way to Turn OFF iPhone X by making use of the Side and Volume down buttons, as described below.
Steps to Turn OFF iPhone X
With the Side button on iPhone being programmed to perform multiple tasks like activating Siri, Accessing Apple Pay, activating SOS, you need to get used to the following method of Turning OFF iPhone X.
1. Press and Hold the Side button and the Volume Up (or the Volume Down) button on your iPhone X, until you see “Slide to Power OFF” option on the screen of your iPhone.
2. Drag the Slider to the right and turn off your iPhone X.
3. Wait for your iPhone to completely Power OFF.
To turn On iPhone X, press and hold the Side button again until you see the Apple logo appearing on the screen of your iPhone.
