This operation is limited to the screen showing a black screen or crash. If your device does not power on or power up, connect your device to a power source and charge it for up to an hour. If the battery mark still does not appear on the screen, check if the charging device is in good condition.

If you still can not boot you can contact Apple Support, confirm the problem before the official repair or repair by yourself.
