iOS 11: How to turn off your iPhone without the power button

There are some handy new features in the Apple new iOS 11 that aren't very sexy, but can be really useful when needed.

One of these new features is the ability to power down your iPhone without the sleep/wake (power) button.

This isn't something you'll likely need to use often, but if you drop your phone, have a malfunction, or encounter some other issue with the sleep/wake (power) button (called the side button on the iPhone X), this is a handy feature.

This new ability can also be helpful for people who make use of accessibility features, like those who may have difficulty squeezing buttons.

How to turn off your iPhone without the power button: Navigate to Settings, swipe down to the bottom and tap Shut Down and then swipe the power off slider from left to right.
