    Just wondering how many people shut their iphone off at night while sleeping or leave it on 24/7 would there be any benefit to shut it down once in awhile .

    You can't really never fully turn it off and keep it off. Unless you don't plug in.

    Once you plug it in and it boot up.

    Also, if you have alarms set, it can turn on anyway because of the alarm, and just stay on.

    For me, phones are always on. The only time I turn it off is when I'm restarting my phone. lol

    I put it in airplane mode since leaving your phone next to you overnight ain't good - radiation apparently.

    My iPhone is literally never turned off unless I need to restart it or the battery dies.

    I don't think that really plays a part unless your iPhone is literally touching you. At least that's been my understanding. I have my phone in my pocket all day long anyway so I'm already in trouble.

    If you want to charge the phone but keep it off then you'll have to plug it and then manually turn it off with the power/sleep button.

    Using Do Don't Disturb is the best way to not have your sleep interrupted and you can still allow important calls to come thru during the night.

    There's no benefit to your device being turned off that I know of

    Might charge a little faster. Pretty much all there is of benefit.

    I use my phone as a sleep radio when I go to bed at night. I will have it charging while streaming for about an hour on a timer.

    I never power down. I don't even use "airplane mode" when I fly.

    Although airplane mode in airplanes isn't that necessary anymore, I don't recommend people to go against the rules regarding flights.
    Those rules are there for a reason and should be obeyed.

    Due to the emergency notifications that the iPhone offers, I never shut mine off. I live in a country with a lot of earthquakes though.

    Mine is always on. I can't even put it in night time mode bc I need to be reachable in case I'm paged for work. I do, however reboot the device every so often, which I think it's a good idea.
