You can turn off the iPhone 7 differently from the 5 and 6 models. Now the “Home” button has become touch-sensitive, now an emergency shutdown is impossible. Let’s consider how else to reboot or turn off the device.
Disconnection with buttons
To “lull” the iPhone when the screen freezes or the sensor breaks, it is enough to use 2 main ones: “Home” and “Power”. You need to simultaneously hold down “Home” and “Power” for 5-6 seconds. A black screen will appear, restart will begin.
If your iPhone is frozen and doesn’t want to shut down, you can try another method.
The sound with the “” symbol is clamped alternately, then with the “-” symbol. After the “Power” key is clamped. The device will shut down forcibly. The settings will be reset, the reboot will begin.
This method is an emergency shutdown, which is best not used unnecessarily. It should be used only when the phone is frozen, does not respond to commands. The danger is that the device can reset all settings in order to turn on and continue to work normally.
To use this method, you need to press the volume up on the left side panel 1 time. Then press the volume down 1 time. Then press and hold “Power”. Then the phone will turn off urgently.
The shutdown key is also located on the right side panel. By holding it for 5-6 seconds, you can quickly de-energize the phone. A window with a slide will pop up. After swiping to the right, the smartphone will fall asleep. You can turn off iPhone 8 using the same key on the side.

How to restart or shutdown iPhone 11, X and XS. All ways
After buying a new iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, many users are wondering how to turn off or restart this smartphone. This information will be especially relevant for those who purchase an Apple smartphone for the first time or switch from an iPhone 8 or older devices.
The methods for rebooting and shutting down these models are slightly different.

Main camera? And ultra-wide ?
Finally I got to the fun part. The main camera takes great pictures at any time. No matter what the conditions, the iPhone 11 camera is guaranteed to deliver good results.
The ultra-wide-angle camera, unfortunately, cannot be praised in the same way. She takes good pictures in good light, but you can forget about her in the evening.
Do you need ultrawide? Rather yes than no. Still, you can use it to make an unusual photo.
There are situations when the iPhone 11 in portrait mode misses and blurs the background incorrectly, but this rarely happens.
The main advantage of the portrait mode on the iPhone 11 is the fact that photos are taken with a камеру / 1.8 aperture camera. After iPhone 8 Plus with телев / 2.8 telephoto it is like a breath of fresh air.
Night mode is more of a welcome addition. A normal shot can be obtained only if there are no moving objects in the frame.
IPhones have always done the best with video, the “eleventh” is no exception.
Focus never jumps, stabilization will smooth out any shaking, and 4K 60 FPS works without any limits.
The front camera takes good pictures and portraits.
Doesn’t always blur the background perfectly, but for Instagram it will do.
I’ve been using iPhone 11 for six months. Found all the flaws
I’ve been using iPhone 11 for six months now. Bought it in October, a month after the start of sales.
Before that, I had an iPhone 8 Plus, which had only two complaints: an outdated form factor (not the biggest issue) and a small 64GB drive. At the time of the sale of the 8 Plus, there was no free memory in the smartphone.
In the end, I took a chance, took the iPhone 11 and still have no regrets. He pleases every day, although there are several drawbacks. But first things first…
Materials leave a lot to be desired
I miss the days when iPhones were made entirely of aluminum. My iPhone 11 is black and I often use it without a case. As soon as you pick it up, traces immediately appear on the body. and if the fingers are wet, then there are still unpleasant stains.
I didn’t pay attention to it before, because I had a white iPhone, and on it the traces were not very noticeable.
I also really liked the matte glass in the iPhone 11 Pro. Perhaps this is the perfect compromise between a metal and glass body. Still, I don’t want to lose wireless charging.
The performance will last for several years
Talking about performance is not very interesting, because there are no problems with it at all. Now the difference in performance can be seen only when loading heavy sites and editing video and audio.
In Call of Duty Mobile, even in the most intense scenes, a stable 60 FPS.
Naturally, the iPhone 11 does just fine with regular apps.
Almost every day I write news to the site from it and I have never had a situation when the application crashed out of multitasking.
How To Turn OFF The iPhone 11 Pro Max, 11 Pro, 11
As for the memory, 128 GB is enough for me so far. I often shoot videos at 4K 60 FPS, and in this mode, the memory is quickly clogged. If you also want to shoot at maximum resolution, then the 64 GB version is definitely not for you.
The battery lost 12% capacity in six months
I still can’t answer the question exactly How long does the iPhone 11 hold? I just don’t keep track of how the charge is being used.
The iPhone 11 will last until evening if you do not launch games and do not work on it. Otherwise, 1-2 additional charges are required. The brightness is always cranked to the maximum, if you reduce it, then the battery life will increase noticeably.
I usually charge my iPhone once during a work day. It’s good that there is fast charging, without it it was much worse. I leave my phone on wireless charging at night.
In this mode, in six months, my iPhone 11 lost 12% of its battery capacity. I think this is a normal result. iPhone 8 Plus lost the same amount in six months.
The display is excellent, the frames are not infuriating
When I bought the iPhone 11, I was mentally prepared for the fact that its screen would not be as sharp as the 8 Plus. But the fears were in vain.
Yes, the number of pixels per inch they have is very different: 326 in the iPhone 11 and 401 in the iPhone 8 Plus. However, in real life, there is no difference. Fonts and small elements are just as crisp, watching movies on such a screen is pleasant.
There are no complaints about color rendition. She has always been perfect in iPhones. Brightness is enough even on the sunniest day. The problem can only occur at the beach when the iPhone automatically dims the brightness due to heat.
The iPhone 11, like other Apple devices, has Haptic Touch. This technology has come to replace 3D Touch. Now, to call the additional menu, you do not need to press hard, but long press on the screen. In principle, there is no difference.
I didn’t have to get used to Haptic Touch, because a month before buying the iPhone 11, I turned off 3D Touch on the iPhone 8 Plus.
The frames are large, you can’t get away from it. Even in cheap Xiaomi they are smaller.
But in six months of using the iPhone 11, I paid attention to the frames two times when I directly compared my smartphone with the iPhone X and iPhone 11 Pro.
Out of habit, I use my iPhone without a protective film and glass.
For six months, not even micro-scratches appeared on the screen. I always carry my smartphone in my and never put the screen down, even in a case.
iPhone 11 will definitely not disappoint you
Who should buy the iPhone 11? Anyone who doesn’t want to spend money on the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. You can save a lot, but at the same time get an excellent smartphone that will cope with all tasks without problems for at least three more years.
iPhone XR or iPhone 11? I also had such a choice, besides, the difference in price is small. iPhone XR 64 GB costs 49,990 rubles, “eleventh” with the same memory will cost 59,990 rubles.
10 thousand you pay extra for an ultra-wide-angle camera, night mode, audio zoom, a new processor, an additional gigabyte of RAM, improved autonomy and moisture protection.
Individually, these are not the most compelling reasons for buying an iPhone 11, but collectively, they explain the surcharge.
If you still have any questions about the iPhone 11, ask in the comments.
How to activate and use Deep Fusion
Thanks to Deep Fusion, the Apple iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max, when combined with iOS 13.2 and above, have camera technology that delivers more detailed images in medium lighting conditions. Behind the marketing term Deep Fusion is what it calls computer photography. And behind this technical term, in this case, there are complex algorithms and programs that use several images, analyze the corresponding objects and structures, and combine everything into one photograph. The resulting image has a higher resolution and shows more detail than a photograph taken without Deep Fusion.
Normal Photo vs. Night vs. Deep Fusion.
Deep Fusion is not a special mode that can be activated and deactivated. This feature is automatically activated when the lighting conditions are too good for night mode, but too bad for Smart HDR. Aside from the more detailed photography, you don’t notice that Deep Fusion is active or active, which is exactly what Apple wanted. Also missing is a compact icon and EXIF information indicating that the photo was taken with Deep Fusion active.
These screenshots from Metapho show examples of three phototypes.
However, there are a few things to consider when it comes to Deep Fusion:
- Deep Fusion only works with tele- and wide-angle lenses, not ultra-wide-angle cameras. The latter does not have the required focusing pixels.
- In iOS settings under Camera, you must turn off the Out of Frame composition options to take advantage of Deep Fusion. These two functions are unfortunately mutually exclusive, so you must choose one.
- Currently, there is only one way to accurately identify a Deep Fusion photo as such. The Metapho app integrates this functionality and also marks the Deep Fusion photo as “Deeply Fused” in the corresponding metadata view.
Similar to Deep Fusion, Night Mode is not an independent camera mode, but a feature that is automatically activated or suggested as soon as the lighting conditions are particularly bad. An active or available night mode can be recognized by the small round icon in the upper left corner of the camera app. If this icon is yellow, the mode is active, if the icon is white, night mode is available, but not automatically activated.
You know that night mode is activated with a dotted round icon and can then change the recording time.
Based on lighting conditions and other factors such as the stability of your iPhone or the use of a tripod, Night Mode automatically selects the ideal exposure time, which is displayed in seconds.
The exposure time can also be increased or decreased manually, and the night mode can be temporarily disabled for the corresponding images. Increasing the manual holding time to the maximum does not necessarily lead to better results. You have to keep this in mind.
Tips and Tricks for Using iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max Cameras
In addition to the obvious innovations in the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max camera modules, Apple’s current iPhones also have less intrusive camera features.
Here’s how to take better photos from modern iPhones using Deep Fusion and Night Mode tricks, as well as other tips and tricks.
- How to activate and use Deep Fusion
- Out-of-frame capture gives you more flexibility
- Night mode
- Quickly switch between video modes with a tap
- Portrait mode
- Using third-party applications
- FiLMiC Pro
- FiLMiC DoubleTake
- Apple Smart Battery Case
Using third-party applications
As mentioned, the stock iOS camera app is designed to be fully automatic. The only adjustments that can be made directly in the app are manually adjusting the focus point and exposure. The application should be as easy to use as possible for a wide range of users, according to the principle: “point and shoot”.
Below we present a few recommended camera apps, some of which we have personally used for years and which can still be found on our iPhone 11 Pro Max today.
While the stock camera app also offers a time-lapse feature, SkyFlow has many more customization options and manual camera settings to offer. In addition, a built-in editor for converting and editing time-lapse recording to video.
FiLMiC Pro is the preferred camcorder app for many Pro users. Whole movies and music videos have been recorded with this app, including Lady Gaga’s latest hit, Stupid Love.
The Adobe Lightroom app is primarily a powerful photo editing software, but it also offers a very interesting camera feature for HDR photos.
