How to Turn Off or Reboot iPhone and iPad in iOS 11 without Pressing Power Button

Do you know that you can turn off and reboot your iPhone or iPad in iOS 11 even without using power button? Head over to know how it’s done the easier way!

There are many cases which buttons are not quite responsive. Hence, it becomes a bit inconvenient to restart or power ON/OFF the iPhone. Personally, I have never enjoyed pressing down two buttons at once to reboot my iOS device as the process requires your fingers to put some extra effort to get the job done. Though there were some roundabout ways through which you could restart your device earlier, it’s become a lot straightforward now. Really! You cannot just power off but also restart your iPhone and iPad even without pressing buttons in iOS 11.

Hidden a bit deep in the Settings is there a Shutdown button that allows you to quickly turn off your iOS 11 devices. A restart button has been added to the AssistiveTouch menu that lets you easily reboot your device. Read on to find out more!
