You always have to use the newest version available for your device.

iPhone is off and won’t switch on!!! AHHH – calm down. Usually you can press home and power button for 30 seconds and it switches on again, but that won’t work in your case. Wait a few hours and plug it into the power socket. No matter what, your phone is NOT broken. This is safe (obviously now warranty from my side).
