Shutting down or rebooting of a mobile phone helps to resolve some certain issues but a minimal one, though I don’t see the reason to be shutting down a phone always.

Now, the question being asked online especially in forums is;

When you shutdown your iPhone, nothing will function anymore including alarm or network services. Your phone will be inactive and unreachable until you powered it on. 

This is the simple explanation I can give for this question and remember shutdown iphone simply means to power off the iphone.

Do you think shutting down your iPhone will damage it or cause havoc to the iPhone which you may start to experience hitches!

I don’t see any harm rebooting an iphone cause I have done it especially if there’s a minor issue with my iphone.

To make things more clear as this question of what happens if you shutdown your iPhone might seem to confuse some number of persons, first you should understand what shutting down a phone means.

This means to completely shut down a mobile phone hardware, including all the apps both offline or running in the background, and all the functions of the phone.

Normally, the term shutdown is used in the computer and not in mobile phones including the iPhone, and that is why the topic of the post on what happens if you shutdown your iPhone might seem confusing to most people.

This is just like when someone is asking what happens if you power off your iPhone?

Definitely nothing will happen as the iPhone will remain inactive until it is powered on.

There are certain things or situations that will make us to power off our iphones or mobile phone, and some of them including the followings;

1. When the iphone is having an issue

There are some minor issues one will experience in an iphone and the first solution to resolve the problem is by powering off the iphone.

This works perfectly well when a mobile phone or the iPhone is hanging or lagging, powering off the iPhone helps to resolve this type of problem based on my own experience.

2. You don’t want to be disturb

Irrespective of the fact that we now have he do not disturb mode and the old airplane mode, some few persons still prefer to completely power off their iphones to avoid being disturbed will calls and text messages.

3. When there’s a serious lightning and thunderstorm

Sometimes I found myself doing this or whenever there is a serious thunderstorm. But mostly there’s a thunderstorm I do enable the airplane mode on my iPhone or any other mobile phone.

Some of these are the reasons why one might power off it’s mobile phone.

Is it OK to power off iPhone at Night?

I don’t see anything wrong in having your iPhone turned on all through the entire night, as long as you kept it but far away from your body.

Is it OK to power off iPhone at night

I don’t recommend turning off your phone at night or even putting the phone in airplane mode because of unforseen circumstances.

This might be an emergency call from your family or neighbour. Once I’ve received an emergency call from my neighbour in the midnight, it was a call for plea.

Had it been my phone was switched off in that very night, there’s no way she would have reached me.

Since then I said to myself that there’s nothing that will make me switch off my phone at night or enable airplane mode when I’m sleeping at night. Instead I will keep the phone but far away from my body.

What happens if I force restart my iPhone?

When you force restart your iPhone, it will deliberately cut off the power from your iPhone battery to its hardware, and in turn will make your iPhone to lose power and shut down.

You don’t go about performing a force restart on your iPhone unless you’re having a problem like hanging, lagging, freezing, or a battery issue.

Thie is also similar to shutting down a phone or what happens if you shutdown your iPhone.
