You can turn on the device simply by pressing the “power” button, but if you do not have the opportunity to use it, you can simply connect the device to the power source.
In this way, you can reboot the devices by turning them off and then on again. Another way to reboot the device without using the “power” or charging buttons is to enable the setting that requires a reboot. For example, change the text settings or reset the system settings. On older versions of iOS, this function is not available in Settings.
