How to Shut Down & Restart Your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max

How to Shut Down & Restart Your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max

Shut Down Using Your iPhone's Buttons
As mentioned above, simply pressing-and-holding the Side button on your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max will summon Siri instead of bringing up the "Slide to Power Off" option. Now, in order to turn off your device, you have two options with the buttons.
You can simultaneously press and hold the Side and volume up buttons, then let go once the "Slide to Power Off" bar appears and swipe on the bar to turn it off. Keep in mind that if you press and release too quickly on the volume up and Side buttons, you run the risk of taking an accidental screenshot instead of bringing up the shut down option.
Alternatively, you can opt to quickly hit the volume up button, followed by the volume down button, then press and hold the Side button to bring up "Slide to Power Off" bar. The SOS bar doesn't come up when using this method, which eliminates the risk accidentally triggering a 911 call (along with the need to re-enter your passcode if you change your mind, which is required on the first method).ption
 2Shut Down from the Settings Menu

In addition to the hardware method of shutting down your iPhone, you can now shut down your iPhone thanks to an option that's available within its Settings app. To do so, head to "General" within the Settings page, then scroll down to the bottom and hit "Shut Down" to bring up the "slide to power off" option.

3Restart Using Your iPhone's Buttons

Once you've turned off iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max using one of the power down method above, simply press and hold on the Side button and let go after the Apple boot screen appears. Beyond that, plugging in your Lightning cable to charge or connect to your computer will also turn your iPhone back on — no button pressing required.
Option 4
Restart Using AssistiveTouch

In addition to the methods above, you also have the ability to restart your iPhone using on-screen controls, this time by way of AssistiveTouch. Since iOS 11, the useful Accessibility feature has had a "Restart" option present and can be accessed by following the menu below. This option is the quickest way to execute a restart, so long as you have AssistiveTouch assigned to the triple-click Side button shortcut.
AssistiveTouch -> Device -> More -> Restart

n 5Restart Using Voice Control

With iOS 13, you now have a completely hands-free method of restarting your iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max, courtesy of Voice Control. Of course, you'll need to have the Accessibility feature set up and enabled to use. So if you haven't already done so, head to the menu below to get Voice Control up and running.
Settings -> Accessibility -> Voice Control -> Enable Voice Control
Once Voice Control is enabled, you can instantly restart your device simply by saying "Reboot Device," followed by "Tap Restart."
In addition, you can say "Hey Siri," then "Turn on Voice Control" if you have Voice Control set up but disabled. Once enabled (indicated by the blue mic icon on the status bar), simply invoke the "Reboot Device" command as described above, and say "Tap Restart."

How to Activate Emergency SOS on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Max

Activating Emergency SOS on your iPhone automatically calls emergency services and sends a text message with your location information to the people in your emergency contacts. For this reason, you should only use it when you're in danger or facing a genuine emergency. Note that you'll need to enter your iPhone's passcode to reenable Face ID and unlock your iPhone after performing Emergency SOS.
 1.Press and hold the Side button as well as either one of the Volume buttons, so that you're essentially squeezing either side of the device.
2.Keep squeezing until the Emergency SOS countdown initiates on the screen. You can either wait for the countdown to finish or slide it across to call the emergency services immediately and alert your emergency contacts.
How to Hard Reset the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max

1.Quickly press and release the Volume Up button.

2.Quickly press and release the Volume Down button.
3.Press and hold the Side button until the Apple logo appears, then release the Side button.
During this process, you will see a slider to power off the iPhone. You're going to want to ignore it and continue holding down the Side button until the screen goes black. At that point, the Apple logo will pop up, and after the restart is complete, the screen will activate once again.
Using the force restart process prevents you from having to shut the iPhone down entirely, which takes several more steps.
If you do want to shut the iPhone down, you can do so by going to the General section of the Settings app, scrolling down to the bottom, and choosing the Shut Down option.
How to Enter Recovery Mode on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max
Entering recovery mode can help if you're having trouble updating or restoring your iPhone over the air. For example, if the screen shows the Apple logo for several minutes but no progress bar appears, you can try putting the device in recovery mode and restoring it with iTunes. Here's how it works.
1. Using the Lightning cable that came with your iPhone, connect the device to a computer that has the latest version of iTunes installed.
2. Launch iTunes on your Mac or PC.
3. With the iPhone connected, force restart it with the following steps, but don't release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Instead, wait until the recovery mode screen appears.
4. Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.

5. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.
6. Press and hold the Side button until you see the recovery mode screen with the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then release it.
7. Select your device in iTunes.
8. You should see a message in iTunes saying that your iPhone is in Recovery Mode. You'll then be given options to update or restore your iPhone’s software.

How to Exit Recovery Mode on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max

Simply press and hold the Side button until the "Connect to iTunes" screen disappears, and your iPhone should reboot back into iOS.
