How to Fix an iPhone or iPad That Will Not Turn On

If your device does not turn on, follow these procedures before taking your device to a repair center:

This may seem like a no-brainer, but there have been many instances that people have reported problems to tech support only to realize that the reason why their device does not turn on is because it was not charged in the first place. A newly discharged iPhone may quickly show that it is charging. A fully drained device may take up to thirty minutes before it will show signs of charging.
