  • If your phone won't turn on, check if it has not fully drained its battery juice. To do it, charge your phone for at least 20 minutes until the charging icon will show.
  • If your phone won't still turn on, check if it is not a problem with the charger. You can check on this by using a different working charger to charge your phone.
  • If your phone won't still turn on, have an Apple technician check on it. Take advantage of the warranty if it is still available.
