Power off screen iPhone

The power-off screen displays sliders that allow you to turn off your iPhone, see Medical ID, and trigger Emergency SOS. This screen should come up when you're trying to shut down your device. In case you randomly see this "slide to power off" screen too frequently for whatever reason, here are a few potential solutions to fix this issue.

Dra1n helps jailbreakers determine which tweaks use the most battery

Perhaps one of the most concerning thoughts jailbreakers have after pwning their handsets is the amount of battery drain they’ll experience after installing a bevy of jailbreak tweaks. Understandable as this may be, it’s important to remember that many developers do everything in their power to mitigate battery drain. Still, this effort doesn’t eliminate it wholeheartedly.

If you’re any be interested in tracking the amount of battery drain that your jailbreak tweaks impose on your device, then we’d strongly recommend a free jailbreak app called Dra1n by iOS developers MegaDev and Charlie While. Not only can it give you a better idea of the amount of battery discharge your handset exhibits each day, but it can also outline the suspected battery-hungry tweaks installed on your device.

Prevent thieves from powering down your iPhone with LockShut

One of the first things a clever iPhone thief will do upon stealing your expensive handset is turn it off so that you can’t call it to listen for your ringtone or use its built-in GPS receiver to track it via Find My iPhone. With this sentiment in mind, it’s amazing that Apple doesn’t require additional secure steps to fully power off your device.

iOS developer Greg Rabago (Greg0109) recognized this eyebrow-raising caveat and consequently developed a new jailbreak tweak called LockShut in an effort to prevent thieves from powering down your iPhone without your permission.
