    Has anyone had problems turning their phone on since updating 12.1.1? mine seems to require the power button to be held in for 10-15 seconds to boot up, but was fine under 12.1.0

    Have the same problem. It's quite annoying. Before updating to 12.1.1 I just had to tap the power button to boot up. Now I have to hold it for a few seconds (not for 10-15 as you but maybe 5).

    Same for me, although I think it only happens if I just turned it off. I think it's still shutting down even though nothing is shown on screen, and you really have to wait until it's finished.

    I always turn my iPhone off during the night and it still takes a long press the next morning to turn it on. Hopefully it’s just a bug and gets fixed :)

    Also for me. At first I thought it wouldn't boot at all :( but then I held the power button pressed and the Apple logo appeared.

    Another thing i have noticed is that after the Apple logo appears it is much faster to get to the logon screen than earlier.
    So perhaps it is booting in the background, but the logo just appears later.

    Hope its just an easily fixable bug..

    Isn't this how most iPhone models at least used to work if not still work?

    Yes, in the past it used to work like this but - I think it was some iOS 11 update - changed the behavior so that it was enough to just tap the side button to power the iPhone on. And now it’s back to the old behavior (hopefully just a bug). By the way, on my iPad Pro it was always the case that I had to hold the side button down to boot up.

    Seems like the "newer" behavior was more of a bug rather than the old one, given that inadvertent action could turn the phone on rather than a more deliberate one, which seems to be more in line with how something like that should function.

    Is there a reason for the regular need to power off/on the phone, besides a bug fix?

    I’ve probably turned off my phone once a month since owning it.

    If you’re not using it, why not leave it on & plugged into a charger overnight?

    Honest question- why?

    If you really want to stop everything (besides silent side switch), airplane mode turns off all radio activity and much faster vs. full power cycle.

    Just out of habit and I think it may be perhaps a good idea software wise (clear RAM etc.) :)

    Habit is one thing, but in terms of it being a good idea and all that, while it can be good to restart once in a while, there's really no real benefit to do it on a daily/nightly basis.

    Nah. Ask most/all here. No RAM issues by leaving it on overnight.

    Benefits from leaving it on & charging are that backups to the cloud can happen whilst you sleep & (if enabled in settings) Apps can update automatically over wifi, so if you let this happen overnight, you’ll have updated Apps by the time you wake up.

    IOS updates may also be automatically installed once downloaded.

    Many benefits related to keeping your software fresh, by plugging in your phone & leaving it powered up.

    Turning phones off is akin to turning modems off or switching TVs off as the wall outlet. No need, unless you’re not going to use them for weeks/months.

    This is also the same on my XS Max. After 12.1.1 requires a very long press to power on.

    Experiencing this as well. I thought it was just me but you definitely have to hold the lock button longer to turn the phone back on.

    I'm confused why it's so annoying? There is honestly no requirement to always power cycle iPhone, unless having specific technical issue/frozen OS.

    About 5 seconds pressing makes it boot. Seems to then boot really quickly. As first world problems go, this I can live with.
