Sometimes the iPhone 8 can have common problems that could cause it to power off and not turn back on when holding down the power button. It is important to tell whether the phone is actually off or if the screen does not work. Make a call to your phone to see if it rings. Make sure that your ringer is set on high or vibrate by toggling the switch on the left side of your iPhone 8. If your phone rings then your phone is most likely on, the screen just is not turning on. If your phone does not ring then it’s possible that the phone is actually off but needs to be charged up or needs a hard reset.

Is There a Temporary Fix?

1. Charge up your phone to make sure that it has enough power to turn on. Typically a phone will turn on with a bad battery if it is plugged into a charger. Check to make sure that you also see the battery symbol without the charging cable. That means that it is actually charging.

2. If you've left your phone for over an hour and it is still on the battery symbol or nothing has showed up on the screen then you can try to reset the phone by holding down a combination of buttons. This will not delete any of your data. It will only soft reset the phone.

3. Click and release the volume up button on the left side of the phone

4. Then click and release the volume down button on the left side of the phone

5. Finally press and hold the power button on the right side of the phone. The Apple logo should show up after about 3-10 seconds of holding the button.

6. As a last resort, your phone might be in a mode called DFU which stands for Device Firmware Upgrade. Plug your phone into a computer to see if the computer detects the phone. If it does then follow the steps on iTunes to update the phone. Do not restore the phone if the data is important to you!
