iPhone turned itself off and won’t turn back on? Try this fix

During a recent episode of our podcast, I mentioned that I had overslept that morning due to my iPhone 11 Pro turning itself off overnight. It was positioned perfectly on a wireless charger, with plenty of battery left over from the day before, and it had absolutely no water damage or any other notable hardware concerns. It simply turned itself off, and wouldn't turn back on.

As it turns out, this is just one of those things that happens sometimes to iPhone models X and newer. Luckily, after some stringent googling, I was able to work out an easy fix for it. So I thought it would be helpful if I shared that fix here on iDB in case you are ever unlucky enough to come across this weird bug.

NotchControl expands your iPhone’s notch with more features

Love it or hate it, most of Apple’s modern-day mobile devices come standard with a top-of-display notch that houses the TrueDepth camera system used by Face ID for biometric authentication and for selfie images. Now that the notch has become the norm, the best thing you can do is embrace it; but why not go a step further and expand it?

NotchControl is a new free jailbreak tweak by iOS developer PeterDev that builds upon the notch’s native aesthetics and functionality. With it, you can incorporate new controls and information displays into the notch, such as things that pertain to music, time, or weather.
