How to Fix iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo

Post a Comment

It's frustrating to have your iPhone stuck on the apple logo for unknown reasons and wouldn’t even load to the home page.

You are on the right track as the goal of this article is to teach you how to fix iPhone stuck on the apple logo screen without you having to resort to extreme measures such as a factory reset.

Reasons for iPhone stuck on apple logo.

There are several reasons why your iPhone could be stuck on the apple logo screen, such reasons as:

1. Low Storage space

The IOS operating system used in all iPhones needs a specific amount of storage space to enable it to function properly and if it doesn’t get that much space needed then it could result in freezing. 

You risk your iPhone being stuck on the apple logo if you don’t check your device’s storage because the more storage space being used the slower your device gets until a critical level is reached and it wouldn’t work anymore.

2. Corrupt file

The second reason your iPhone device could be stuck on the apple logo might be because the iPhone’s software is corrupt which could result from data transfer or installation of new iOS updates on an old model of iPhone or even a corrupt file being restored from your iCloud or iTunes backups.

3. Problem with internal component

Another possible reason for your iPhone being stuck on the apple logo could be because you dropped your phone and the impact from the fall has tampered with some of its internal components hence the misbehaviour.

How to fix iPhone stuck on apple logo.

Most tech experts will tell you that the only solution to this problem is to get your iPhone to factory reset but this solution isn’t so helpful as it means you lose all the files you have on your phone and since this isn’t something you planned for you might not have backups for them. 

Below are some tips that could help you revive your iPhone that is stuck on the apple logo without having to lose your files or data.

1. Force start

This is you trying to forcefully restart your iPhone without using the slider ( I.e where you don’t have to toggle the slider from left to right). The process of forcefully restarting iPhones may differ depending on the version being used by you.

 If you are using any of the iPhone 6 series, then you could easily restart your phone by pressing the home button and the power button simultaneously until it restarts.

If it is any of the iPhone 7 series that you are using, then the force start can be done by pressing down the power button and the volume down button simultaneously until it restarts.

But for all newer versions of the iPhone, you should press and release both volume buttons( i.e volume up and volume down buttons) before holding down the power button until it restarts.

However, there is a possibility that the device could go back to the apple logo without loading the homepage after it restarts.

2. Reinstall iOS 

In any case, the force restart doesn’t solve the problem, you should likely try reinstalling the iOS of your iPhone. 

There is a chance that your device was interrupted in the middle of an update which must have led to the software getting corrupt. 

To do this, connect your iPhone to a computer and open iTunes locate your phone in iTunes and get connected.

Then force restart your phone using the above process until a recovery mode appears on your iPhone screen which displays a computer icon. 

Select update and the computer will download and reinstall iOS on your device without you losing your data.

3. DFU Restore 

The Device Firmware Update Restore (DFU) is a restore option for iPhones which overwrites firmware or incomplete software with new codes. It could be helpful to restore your device from critical issues.

Connect your device to a computer using an apple supported USB cable.

For iPhone 8 series and newer.

  • Press down the volume up button and release quickly than do the same for the volume down button.
  • Also, press and hold down the side button till the screen is black.
  • When the screen is black, hold down the volume down button again this time hold it simultaneously with the side button for about 5 seconds then release the side button while still holding the volume button.

Then follow the prompt that appears on your computer to complete the process.

For iPhone 7 series

  • Press and hold down the side button and the volume down button simultaneously.
  • Hold these buttons for about 8 seconds then release the side button while still holding the volume down button until your computer acknowledges the presence of your iPhone then follows the prompt.

For iPhone 6 series and older versions.

  • Press and hold down the sleep & wake button and the home button simultaneously.
  • Hold these buttons for about 8 seconds then release the sleep & wake button while still holding the home button until your computer acknowledges the presence of your iPhone then follow the prompt.

Make sure that the screen of your iPhone device stays blank but if the iPhone icon is displayed on the screen of the phone then it has entered recovery mode instead so do well to disconnect and reconnect again, this time please try to mind the timing.

Conclusion

The most important thing you need to do when your iPhone is stuck on the apple logo is to find out the possible cause of it and then you could proceed to try any of the solutions above to fix it. 

However, if all the above-proffered solutions prove abortive do well to visit any professional mobile technicians or visit the apple store to get your device fixed. 

But I believe the above article will be helpful to you while trying to fix your iPhone stuck on the apple logo.
