General News How to turn off your iPhone, iPad without using the power button
#1
Advertisement

With the release of iOS 11, a host of new features were introduced like the revamped Control Center, Dark Mode, DND mode and Disable Touch ID to name a few. Besides these obvious changes, there are also a bunch of hidden features that are discovered every other day. One such feature that has been discovered lets users shut down an iPhone or iPad without hitting the physical power button.

The feature, first spotted by osxdaily.com, will come handy in case the power button on the side is broken or not working. The latest version of iOS offers an easy way to turn off the device entirely without hitting the power button. Here’s a look at how to use this hidden feature on the iPhone or iPad.

To access the shutdown option, users need to head over to Settings -> General, and there you will see a new button called ‘Shut Down’. On tapping the Shut Down option, a “slide to power off” option will appear. Sliding the button will power off the iOS device. For users on older versions of iOS, they need to either depend on the physical power button or depend on the accessibility options to turn off the device.



Here’s a small demo video that will help you understand the feature better.


Apple recently released iOS 11.0.2 that helped fix the minor bugs including the crackling sound faced by iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus users during calls. Some users have also reported about issues with opening S/MIME-encrypted emails on iOS 11. With the latest update, this issue has been fixed too.

To update your device to the latest version of iOS 11, head over to Settings -> General -> Software Update. According to the latest reports, iOS is running on nearly 40 percent of all Apple devices.
