How to Fix an iPhone 14 Pro That Won’t Turn On
Try these solutions if your iPhone 14 Pro won’t power on.
Power on the iPhone
Press and hold the power button at the right side of your iPhone. If the iPhone is powered off, you should see the Apple logo appear after a couple of seconds, which means that the phone is functioning normally.
Perform a force restart
Your iPhone 14 Pro might simply be temporarily frozen and needs a manual reset or “force restart.” Quickly press and release the volume up button, then the volume down button. Finally, press and hold the power button until the Apple logo appears, and then release it.
Try charging your phone
If you are unable to restart your iPhone, then it’s likely that your phone is already powered off, and the battery might be dead. Thus, simply connect the iPhone 14 Pro or iPhone 14 to a power source and let it charge for 15-20 minutes, and then while it is still connected to power, press and hold the Power/Lock button to power the iPhone 14 Pro on.
Check your charging port and cable
If the iPhone 14 Pro still doesn’t turn on after 30 minutes connected to power, there might be something wrong with the way it’s charging. Inspect the phone’s Lightning port to make sure it isn’t filled with lint or debris, and inspect your Lightning cable for kinks, breaks, or frays. If necessary, swap the cable for another. Alternatively, try charging your iPhone wirelessly.

Make sure the power button is working
If the power button doesn’t seem to work, plug the iPhone 12 into a power source and see if it turns on automatically. If the phone turns on and has power, then there might be a problem with either the power button or the power button cable. Test the power button and take your iPhone in for repair it if necessary.
Check your display
It’s possible that your iPhone 14 Pro won’t power on because the display is damaged. An easy way to rule this out is to turn the phone on and listen for a sound. Also, you can move the mute toggle switch back and forth to see if it vibrates. If it vibrates or you hear a sound but nothing displays on the screen, then the screen is most likely the problem.
