When a high-end smartphone like the iPhone 14 Pro stops responding and would no longer power back on, it is often due to a minor system glitch, which can easily be fixed provided it hasn’t been caused by physical or liquid damage.
There are also times when it’s just due to a drained battery, although it’s easy to know if that’s the case because the moment you connect it to a charger, the device will show the Apple logo as a sign that it responds normally.

Time Needed : 5 minutes
However, if for some reason your iPhone 14 Pro won’t respond when you press and hold the Power key or connect it to a charger, then there are a few things you can do.
- Force restart your iPhone 14 Pro.
It must be the first thing you have to do because it has been proven to be very effective in fixing problems like this.
To force restart your device, press and quickly release the Volume Up button, and then do the same to the Volume Down button. Immediately after that, press and hold the power key for 8 seconds.
When the Apple logo shows, release it and your iPhone 14 Pro should be booting up normally.
- Charge & do the Forced Restart.
If the simple force restart hasn’t made your iPhone 14 Pro respond, then it’s probably because it’s low on battery. It is also possible that the system crashed just before the device powered down due to insufficient battery and that could be the reason it won’t respond.
So to address that, connect your iPhone to a working charger and leave it there for at least 10 minutes regardless of whether the Apple logo shows or not.
After such time, do the forced restart again. Just follow the steps from the previous procedure while your iPhone 14 Pro is still connected to the charger.
In most cases, this procedure will make any iPhone respond again. However, if the problem continues, then the problem can already be serious.
- Set up and appointment at the Genius Bar.
After doing the first two solutions and your iPhone 14 Pro is still not turning on, then it’s probably a serious problem with either the firmware or the hardware.
It has to be checked by an Apple technician to know what the issue really is all about.
So set up an appointment with the Genius Bar or any authorized Apple service center and have it fixed.
In most cases, when an iPhone won’t turn on or respond, it’s just due to a system crash, which occurs every now and then. However, unexpected things might also happen even when you’re using the device normally.
