The first thing you need to try is to reset your device. To do that, simply press the Home button and the sleep/wake button simultaneously. Hold the buttons for a couple of seconds, and release them when the Apple logo appears. The device may turn on normally.
When iPhone 5c won’t turn on, the thing you should try is to connect it to a wall charger and leave it for about half an hour. Usually, after a couple of minutes, you will notice the charging screen.
Instead of using the wall charger, connect your iPhone 5c to your computer via USB cable. You have certainly experienced many strange issues with your phone over the years, but sometimes, the solutions that sound crazy fix the issue.
Take a closer look at the cables and connector, because any damage may be the reason why your device does not react to any of the charging methods which are crucial when iPhone 5s cannot turn on. Also, if there is any dirt or debris in the connector, make sure to clean it. Try another charger as well.
This can help:
- Connect your iPhone 5s to your computer via USB cable
- Open iTunes software
- Force the iPhone to restart: press Home and the sleep/wake button at the same time, and hold the buttons, even when you see the Apple logo on the screen.
- Release Home and the sleep/wake button when the Recovery mode screen shows up
- iTunes will offer you two options: Restore and Update. Select Update. The program will reinstall the iOS software. Data on your iPhone won’t be erased.
In case your iPhone exits the recovery mode, which may happen sometimes, especially if the update lasts for too long, try again by repeating the provided steps.
