How to Fix iPhone Stuck on Black Screen with Apple Logo?

A major update can freeze many devices and your iPhone won’t turn on, even new and powerful ones. You can find additional inputs and a resolution in this troubleshooting guide if this happens to your iPhone as well.

The Apple logo on your iPhone is probably causing you to wonder what caused the problem. You are less likely to repeat a problem if you understand the catalyst. You might be stuck on the Apple logo on your iPhone’s Home screen for some of the most common reasons.

An upgrade

When you upgrade to iOS 15, you may notice that your iPhone gets stuck on the Apple logo. The most common cause of this is trying to install the latest iOS on an older phone.

Your phone was jailbroken 

Your iPhone can become stuck on the Apple logo after you have attempted the jailbreak process whether you performed it yourself or took it to a technician.

When you restore from iTunes

After restoring your iPhone from iTunes or iCloud, it can become stuck on the Apple screen.

Through an update or restore 

For a variety of reasons, we all need to update or restore our iPhones semi-regularly. Your iPhone can get stuck on the Apple logo screen when installing an update or performing a regular restore.

Hardware issues

Your iPhone may also suffer some internal hardware damage. Your iPhone may be stuck on the Apple logo if you accidentally dropped it or made it experience liquid damage.

The iPhone has been damaged physically

You have likely damaged your iPhone’s internal hardware if you dropped it. Your iPhone may be unable to reboot as a result, leading to the Apple screen of death!

Here are some ways you can try to solve this issue.

Way 1: Force Restart your iPhone

The hard reset solution might be new to you, or maybe you’ve heard it’s a waste of time. You should at least try it before you judge it. Hard resetting your phone is quick, easy, and often more effective than you think.

Hard resetting an iPhone 6S or earlier:

  • Press and hold the power and home buttons simultaneously for up to 10 seconds until the phone restarts
  • Hard resetting the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus:
  • By holding the volume down button and the side button simultaneously

Hard resetting an iPhone 8 or newer:

  • Hold down the side button while pressing and releasing the volume up and volume down buttons
  • You may notice that your phone’s screen flashes after performing the hard reset, or it may just go dark. It may automatically reset, or you might have to press the power button to restart it. If so, the boot loop issue should be resolved.

Way 2: Put your iPhone in Recovery Mode

Whenever your iPhone stops at the white Apple logo and doesn’t move, it means that it gets stuck during startup and needs to be restarted.

If a force restart didn’t fix the issue and your iPhone is still unresponsive, you’ll need to perform a recovery mode restore. This puts your iPhone into a state where it can be repaired and restored.

In cases where a factory reset is incapable of resolving major system flaws, a recovery mode restore is usually the next recommended procedure.

  • Install iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone.
  • To turn the phone off or on, press and hold the volume down and on/off buttons at the same time for ten seconds.
  • Hold down the volume for ten seconds after releasing the on/off button. Your iPhone will be in DFU mode if the screen is blank.
  • Once you restart iTunes, you should see the message: “iPhone has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.”. This iPhone must be restored for it to work with iTunes. The phone can now either be restored to factory settings or a backup loaded.

iPhone 8/Plus/X:

  • Install iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone.
  • Finally, press and quickly release the power button. Press and quickly release the volume up button, then press and quickly release the volume down button.
  • After ten seconds, release the volume button. Once the phone enters DFU mode, you should see a blank screen.
