How to fix broken iPhone lock button: the power button’s stopped working!
Advice and a handy fix for a broken iPhone and iPad lock/power/sleep home button
iPhone or iPad lock/power button not working? Here’s how to fix a broken lock button.
The button at the top of my iPhone 4S, commonly known as the lock button, power button or sleep button, is broken. It doesn’t click at all. This can be really, really annoying because you can’t turn off the iPhone, you can’t take a screenshot, and, most frustratingly, you can’t put your iPhone to sleep.
Apparently, this is a common problem, and Apple has even been taken to court over it. Two iPhone owners in the US attempted to sue Apple over the problem, which they say is caused by a faulty design.
In their complaint, which was filed in February 2013, the two plaintiffs say that Apple knew that there was a problem with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S’ lock button design. They also say that the apparent fault could be hazardous because it prevents users from being able to turn off their phones on a flight, for example.
US District Judge Gary Feess threw out the power button case, though, dismissing the claim because the plaintiffs failed to prove a breach of warranty and RICO.
In May, a nearly identical case was filed against Apple, in which the plaintiff argues that the flex cable mechanism attached to the power button, which we’ve found is the cause of the problem, becomes inoperable after extended use.
If your power button is broken and judging by the amount of people that read this article every day, that’s a lot of you, we feel your pain, but you’ll be pleased to hear that it is kind of fixable, and there’s a really handy workaround that you might not know about.

How to fix a broken iPhone lock button: Hardware repair
If your iPhone is still in warranty, Apple may be able to repair the hardware for free. Check out our iPhone warranty guide to see what your rights are. You can make an appointment with Apple to find out if you’re covered. If it turns out you’re not covered, a Genius from the Apple Store will be able to tell you how much it’ll cost to get it repaired.
If you’re not happy with coughing up the cash to get your iPhone’s lock button repaired, or if your bank balance won’t allow it, you could consider repairing the iPhone yourself.
We wouldn’t recommend trying to repair your iPhone yourself unless you’re confident in doing so, as it’s really quite difficult. Plus, it’s not as simple as getting a new lock button and fitting that in it could actually be that there’s a tiny part missing from the power button flex cable. Unfortunately, this is one of the last components to be removed from the iPhone during repair, so you’ll need to do a lot of fiddly work before you get to it.
Also, attempting to repair your iPhone yourself could invalidate your warranty, so if it doesn’t work and you end up having to take it to Apple, it’s likely you’ll have to pay.
