How to turn off the iPhone 12, iPhone 13, iPhone 14
There are two ways you can turn off the iPhone, but the easiest and most efficient way is use the buttons located on the sides.
1. Locate the volume up button (on the left side of the iPhone).
2. Find the solitary button on the right side of the iPhone.
3. Press and hold both of these buttons simultaneously until the "Slide to Power Off" feature appears.
4. Slide the circular button from left to right, and your iPhone will power down.
It's worth noting that you can achieve the same result by using the volume down button and the right button.
1. Go to Settings.
2. Go to "General."
3. Scroll down to the bottom.
4. Tap on "Shut Down."
To turn your iPhone back on, all you need to do is press and hold the right button until the Apple logo appears.
