Is there a way to charge my iPhone while it is turned off?

You may have tried to charge your iPhone while it was powered off only to have it turn itself on as soon as you plug it in to the USB cable or place it on the dock. As a result, it may have seemed that the iPhone insists on being turned on in order to charge.

As it turns out, this is not the case. Simply plug your iPhone in to charge while turned on (or off for that matter) and once it begins charging, power it down. If you power down after charging begins, the iPhone will remain turned off while still charging.


This is false. Every time I turn it off once I plug it in to charge, when I turn it on, 8 hours later (after I wake up from sleeping) it isn't charged at all. I am extremely pissed off about this (As you can tell).

Has a solution been found the above does not work.

Yes you are right. The phone can be charged during shutdown

But how do you know when it's already full? I tried to charge it via my powerbank and I see it is charging (while turned off) but how about on a wall socket?

This is not true. The iphone doesn't charge while off - come on Apple!

This does work. I turned my iPhone 5c off whilst charging, and left it for about 5 minutes, it charged 8%

Your lucky because my phone has been charging for 4 hours and its still not full.

Have same problem!! Come on Apple!!

It does charge when off and faster. I plugged it in (dead battery) it turned itself on and began to charge (went to 16%) I turned it off and left it plugged in- ten minutes later I fired it up and the charge was at 32%

But does it become full? Answer: No. Come on Apple let's fix this!
