I am getting surprised while I am trying to turn off my iPhone using side button. On my iPhone X, Continuous press side button activates Siri in place of Slide to power off screen. Let’s check how to turn off iPhone X without Side button or Sleep/Wake button if isn’t turning off using side button.
Apple’s new iPhone X, All shortcuts for operating iPhone quite changed, but it’s now very easy. Now switch off iPhone X without activating Siri by long press on side button.
Disable Siri only for side button: Go to the Settings > General > Accessibility > Side Button > Off (Select off under PRESS AND HOLD TO SPEAK).
Officially there are no custom settings that make your Side button for turn off iPhone. Go to the Settings below for turn off iPhone X quickly.
Method 1: Using Settings
Go to the Settings app on iPhone X or (Also this option is available on other iOS 11 devices) General > Scroll Down and find Shut Down.
This method is useful for soft restart iPhone X. But doesn’t work and help to fix your problems must try hard restart.
Method 2: Using Assistive Touch
We can enable and Customize assistive touch to manage all shortcuts or add/remove control in Assistive touch. Know how to customize assistive touch on iPhone. [Add Restart option in Assistive touch]
Now from home screen or lock screen, we can restart iPhone X. See My iPhone X screen Below,

Again press and hold side button only for a start your iPhone like before.
