How to turn off iPhone 14

Over time, the need to turn off the iPhone gradually diminished. This doesn’t mean that it’s no longer possible, but rather that there are now special techniques to turn off your iPhone.

With increasing reliability and stability and the expectation of constant 24-hour connectivity, fewer and fewer of us would even consider turning off our iPhones.
