To power off your iPhone 12 or iPhone 12 mini with its buttons, you follow these 2 easy steps.

Maybe this will be easier if you can't commit the button combination to memory. Go to General in the Settings app and scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen. A button labeled Shut Down can be seen there. To turn your phone off, tap it and slide the power off toggle.
Go to Settings > General > Shut Down, then drag the slider.

Restart Your iPhone with the Buttons
You have a few options if you need to reset your iPhone rather than turn it off. Using the buttons to restart your iPhone is identical to the second technique of turning it off described above.
- Push the Volume Up button once fast.

- Hold the Side button down until the Apple logo appears.
The typical restart can solve a lot of problems, but not all of them. In some cases, your Apple iPhone 12 needs to try what's called a hard reset. This is a restart that clears the iPhone's active memory (don't worry; you won't lose any data like images or messages). It's best used when your iPhone 12 won't switch off using the standard methods.
So that's how to turn off your iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro Max, and iPhone 12 mini. If you have any trouble turning off your iPhone device, leave a comment below and we will help you solve it.
