iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo

You have to face freezing or crashing very rarely if you have an iPhone. However, it’s not impossible to come across an iPhone stuck on Apple logo. This might happen once in a blue moon, but there are chances. Fortunately, there are proven solutions to remove your iPhone from such situations and revert it back to productivity.

Your iPhone might keep turning on, but it might not proceed past the Apple logo screen. In addition, the device might keep turning off. Don’t panic, and try to figure out what the reason is. 

Reportedly, corrupted software, corrupted iTunes or iCloud backup, jailbroken devices, internal damage, and water damage can lead to such an instance.

Many DIY solutions are available for this type of screen-of-death situation for the iPhone. However, those cure-all and in-general solutions might not work accordingly. 

Instead, go through this guide and test the proven solutions below:

1. Sufficiently Charge the iPhone

Perhaps, your iPhone can’t boot the operating system because of insufficient power. You can see the iPhone stuck on Apple logo screens and not move beyond that when it has drained all its battery. Eventually, the iPhone’s battery dies and does not turn on.

Hence, you have to make sure that the iPhone has enough power or charge to operate normally. Plug your iPhone’s charger into the device and let it charge for a considerable period. You should charge the iPhone for at least 30 minutes or so. Next, you can plug out the charger and try to turn on the iPhone.

If the iPhone makes its way to showing its Home screen, then your problem is resolved. Remember to charge your iPhone regularly. However, you can proceed with the remaining solutions if your iPhone is still stuck on the Apple logo screen.

2. Remove the USB Cable from the iPhone if Connected Any

Have you connected your iPhone to any computer using a USB cable? iPhone users must connect their iPhones to computers to sync iTunes backups and other reasons. However, the connecting cable might be damaged.

That’s why your iPhone might be malfunctioning, and it’s stuck on the apple logo screen. Try removing the USB cable from the iPhone, as it might be incompatible or damaged. Incompatible cables might not let the iPhone proceed to boot if you are syncing or restoring iTunes backups. Replace the existing cable with a certified one for iPhones and check if it works.

3. Force Restart the iOS Device

Forcing a restart might solve the temporary glitch occurring on your iPhone. That’s why you should try this solution once before you continue with other complex ones. However, different iPhones require different procedures to restart forcefully.

For iPhone SE, 8, or later models, you have to press and release the Volume Up button. Repeat the same process with the Volume Down button. After that, long-press the Side button of the iPhone till the Apple logo shows up. Check if the device boots on the operating system automatically.

In case you own an iPhone 7 Plus or 7, you need to hold the Side and Volume Down buttons simultaneously. The iPhone should reboot, and you can release the buttons once the Apple logo appears. 

For an older iPhone, you need to hold the Home and Wake/Sleep buttons for a while. You can let go of them after the Apple logo shows up.

Ensure that you follow the instructions and button orders properly. Otherwise, you might end up calling SOS contacts.

4. Use the Recovery Mode

Has it been hours since you experienced your iPhone stuck on Apple logo screen? Well, you can take the help of iTunes to make your iPhone enter the Recovery Mode and restore it. Remember that you have to lose data on your iPhone if you go for the Recovery Mode.

For example, you can lose Photos, messages, contacts, etc. However, you need not worry if you regularly back up your device on iCloud. 

Here’s how you can use Recovery Mode for iPhone 8 or newer models:

  • Open iTunes on your computer. Next, connect the computer to your iPhone.
  • Press and release the Volume Up button quickly.
  • Press and let go of the Volume Down button quickly.
  • After that, you need to hold the Side button until the iPhone shows you a picture where it instructs you to connect to iTunes.
  • You can head towards iTunes and click the Restore option to recover the iPhone stuck on Apple logo screen.

5. Opt for DFU Mode to Restore the Device

The Device Firmware Update or DFU mode helps in booting the iPhone to iOS. This mode is quite similar to the Recovery Mode. However, the DFU mode is more effective compared to the Recovery Mode. 

Additionally, it’s trickier, and that’s why you have to be precise while performing the following steps to restore an iPhone stuck on Apple logo.

By the way, here’s how you can make an iPhone 8 or later enter DFU mode:

  • Start with launching iTunes on your computer.
  • Afterwards, connect the iPhone to your computer with a compatible cable.
  • Press and release the Volume Up and Down buttons quickly, one by one. Ensure that you maintain the order as mentioned.
  • Next, you have to hold the Side button until the iPhone screen goes black out.
  • Hold the Volume Down and Side buttons simultaneously for 5 seconds.
  • After 5 seconds, let go of the Side button but keep holding the Volume Down button for additional 10 seconds. A notification should appear on iTunes.
  • This guarantees that iTunes has detected the iPhone. Simply click the Restore button to recover your iPhone from the stuck condition.

6. Try a Third-Party Tool

If you don’t want to lose your iPhone data at any cost and securely restore your device, then you can use a recognised third-party repair tool. Countless iOS-supported repair software is available online, and you can pick up a trusted one. 

Don’t forget to check out their reviews and success rates for your iPhone stuck on Apple logo screen.

7. Reset the iPhone

A factory reset might help you when the iPhone is still stuck on the Apple logo. However, you have to be quite specific while resetting your iPhone, depending on its model. 

Check out the user guidelines for particular iPhone models, and then carefully execute a factory reset on your iPhone.

Reach Apple Store for Repair

You might need expert intervention if none of the methods has worked for your iPhone stuck on Apple logo. Your iPhone might have been severely damaged, and it needs to be repaired without any delay. Otherwise, the iPhone might go useless, and you have to go for a replacement.
