Both are extremely important and necessary, so we need to make sure that our mobile does not fall or hit, so that they remain in good condition. But have you ever wondered how you can turn your mobile on or off if the power button breaks?
Major brands, such as Huawei, they anticipated the inconvenience that the power button may not work and they implemented functions, inside the device, to be able to turn our smartphones on and off automatically without having to press the button. We also have the solution for iPhone.
Turn a Huawei phone on and off without the power button
All Huawei devices that have the EMUI operating system will be able to perform this function. The great advantage of these devices is that they do not need the help of third parties, as is the case with applications that do the same job, saving more memory on our device.
To schedule the automatic startup of our Huawei device, the first thing to do is go to Settings and select the option ' Smart assistance '.
Once there we will see a series of settings that we can change to our liking, but we will have to press the one that says Programmed On / Off. Once on this screen, we can activate, depending on what you want, the automatic switching on or off.
When we enable any of the options, we will have to configure the time we want it to turn on and the time we want it to go out. This setting can be scheduled once, on a specific day or every day.
Once this step is complete, the setup is complete and the phone will turn on and off without the need for the power button.
