    My iPhone 6 turns back on when I unplug it. I'm pretty sure my other iPhones never did that. Am I crazy, is this a new setting I can't find, is something different/wrong with my 6? A little bit of all three...?

    As far back as I can remember, iOS devices wake up when unplugged. I know my 5S on 7.1.2 does so every morning.

    Just to make sure, if you phone is turned off and you plug it into the charger it will turn on. It will also wake the home screen when the charger is removed.

    BUT

    If you turn your phone off AFTER you hooked it up to the charger, it should not turn on when you remove the charger.

    This is what I've always done: plug it in and then turn it off. I don't remember the old ones turning back on automaticaly when I unplugged them. This one does. Just curious....I can check out my friends phones tomorrow at work.

    FYI, I just double checked. My 5S on 7.1.2 behaves as follows:
    Phone locked/asleep then plug into charger: screen wakes to show battery, then shows lockscreen, then back to sleep in a few seconds.
    Phone on charger and locked/asleep then unplug from charger: screen wakes to show lockscreen then back to sleep in a few seconds.

    If you're talking about behavior when fully powered down, my 5s boots when plugged in while powered off. If powered off while plugged in, nothing happens when unplugged.

    I seldom turn off my iPhone and it runs 24/7.

    I do not think I have seen a phone turn back on when the charger was removed. Even if it did it would not be a problem for me.

    no, you are not crazy. this happens on my 6 and it has never happened on any of my other iPhones. I found this thread because I finally got sick of it. I plug it in at night, turn it off and then, when I unplug it in the morning, it turns on, just as you describe.

    Thanks for the pithy, useless remark. It didn't add to the conversation about an issue that's of interest to a few people. Glad it made you feel better about yourself, though.

    Well that was a surprise. My 6 does this too. I didn't know about this "auto-power up" feature, but I can see it being quite useful.

    Why do people find it undesirable?

    I actually like it. I shut my phone off and plug it in every night and when I wake up, I unplug it and it turns on, which I would have done anyway. I just started this thread because I was just curious if this was a new setting or feature since my other phones never did that.

    I find the whole 'wake up when unplugged' annoying. I'm sensitive to lights at night, and when ever an iPhone/iPad is un/plugged here, I find the light distracting. My problem, to be sure, but a setting to keep the damn ting dark/asleep after unplugging would be nice for people as weird as me.

    Plus the noise is distracting too... *BEEP* Screams 'HEY! I'VE BEEN PLUGGED IN!!!' or 'HEY! I'VE BEEN UNPLUGGED!'...

    I don't know if that's a setting or not. Seems like it *could* be a setting...

    Those of you who claim your other iPhones never did this must be in the habit of waking it up before unplugging so you never detected or paid attention to this behavior, or you have short memory.

    Nope. I tried it with a few 5s and a 4. None turn on when unplugged. Not waking up. Turned on.

    Oh, so you mean it boots up when it's unplugged? I haven't tried it.

    Yeah. It's weird but like I wrote above, I don't mind it personally cause I would normally turn it on after unplugging Anyway.

    I'm not sure why you're powering it down prior to plugging it in as the iPhone is designed to be continually on and we have the do not disturb feature if we don't want to be bothered at nights. For this reason, many people equate turning on as waking up so perhaps you should edit your OP to clarify this to say booting up or powering on.

    Not a problem. When you said you were "sick of it", I could not resist.

    Your skin must be pretty thin.

    Happy Holidays!
