So you’ve broken your iPhone’s home button and need a way to turn off your phone? Don’t worry, because we’re here to help. In the unfortunate event that your home button is broken, there are a few different ways to turn off your phone without using the home button.
Depending on how your phone is broken, you’ll need to rely on a few different buttons to turn off your phone. Here are a few different ways to turn off your iPhone 13 without the home button.
1. Go to the Settings App
The traditional way to turn off an iPhone is to press and hold the home button until the slider appears. If your home button isn’t working or you just don’t want to use it, there are other ways to turn off your iPhone.
One way is to go to the Settings app and select General. Then scroll down to the bottom and select Shut Down. You can also hold down the power button until you see the “slide to power off” option.
2. Change Your Volume and Brightness Settings
If your iPhone 13 is no longer responding or you have a broken Home button, don’t worry–you can still turn it off! All you need to do is change a few settings. The first is your volume. To do this, hold the Side button and either volume button until the slider appears.
Then move the slider all the way down to turn your volume off. The second setting you’ll need to adjust is your brightness. To do this, hold the Side button and either volume button until the slider appears. Then move the slider all the way to the left to turn your brightness off.
3. Enter Your Passcode and Scroll Down to General
To turn off your iPhone 13 without the home button, you’ll need to input your passcode. Once you’ve done that, scroll down to General and press the slider for Shut Down.
Your iPhone will turn off and you’ll be good to go. If you ever need to restart your iPhone 13, just hold down the side button and volume up button until you see the Apple logo.
4. Tap Auto-Lock and Change it to Never
The easiest way to turn off your iPhone 13 without the Home button is to go into the Settings menu. From there, tap Auto-Lock and change it to Never. This will keep your phone from going to sleep and will allow you to turn it off completely by holding down the Power button. Easy as that!
5. Exit the Settings App and Return to the Home Screen
To turn off your iPhone 13 without the Home button, follow these simple steps:
1. Launch the Settings app.
2. Scroll to the bottom and tap on General.
3. Tap on Shut Down.
4. Tap on Shut Down again to confirm.
5. Exit the Settings app and return to the Home screen.
When you want to turn off your iPhone 13, it can be easy to just press the Home button and slide it across.
But if you’re in a hurry or not near your phone, there’s an alternative: simply double tap the power button and hold it down until “slide to power off” appears on-screen.
