  1. With your iPhone completely off, press and hold the power button on the right-hand side of the device until you see the Apple logo.
  2. If you have a password on your iPhone (and you really should), enter it to unlock your device.
  3. If you don’t have a password, simply press the Home button to head to your Home screen.
