How to fix iPhone stuck on Apple logo

These are the four methods you can try to fix the iPhone stuck on the Apple logo issue while booting.

 

Method 1: Force restarting the iPhone

Forcing a restart on your iPhone can solve the issue, and this works for many Apple users.

If you’re using iPhone X, iPhone 8 or iPhone 8 Plus: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button, press and quickly release the Volume Down button, then press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.

If you’re using iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus: Press and hold both the Side button and Volume Down button for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

If you’re using iPhone 6s and earlier: Press and hold both the Home button and the Top (or Side) button for at least 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

Force restart can help you get the normal start up on your iPhone.

If your iPhone is still stuck on the Apple log, don’t be upset. We have other solutions for you to try.

 

Method 2: Try the Recovery Mode

If forcing a restart can’t resolve your iPhone stuck on the Apple logo, you can try the iPhone Recovery Mode, which works more often than a restart.

Note: to try this method, you need a Apple USB cable, a computer with the latest iTunes installed.

1) Connect your iPhone to your computer with the USB cable.

2) Open iTunes on your computer. (If your computer is not recognizing your iPhone, check …)

3) After connected, try the steps below to put your iPhone into the Recovery Mode:

If you’re using iPhone 6s or earlier: Press and hold both the Home button and the Top (or Side) button at the same time, and don’t let go until you see the Connect to iTunes screen. (it’s the image of the cable and iTunes icon shown at the top of this article). The phone is now in recovery mode.

4) You’ll see a popup from iTunes on your computer: There is a problem with the iPhone that requires it to be updated or restored, and you’re prompted to choose Update or Restore.

Click Update to install the iOS updates without deleting your data.

If the download takes more than 15 minutes and your device exits the connect to iTunes screen, let the download finish, then repeat step 3) in this method.

5) If Update fails, put your iPhone into the Recovery Mode again and click Restore. Note that restoring your iPhone will erase the data in your iPhone.

3) To enter the DFU mode,

If you’re using iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus: Quick press the Volume Up button > quick press the Volume Down button > press and hold the Side button for 10 seconds until the screen goes blank > hold down the Side button and the Volume Down button for 5 seconds > Release the Side button while continue to hold down the Volume Down button until you see the message pops up on your computer: iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

If you’re using iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus: Press and hold down both the Side button and the Volume Down button for 8 seconds > release the Side button while continue to hold down the Volume Down button for around 10 seconds until you see the message pops up on your computer: iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

Note: If the Apple logo appears, the Side button or Power button was held down for too long, and you need to start again to enter the DFU mode.

4) Once you see the alert: iTunes has detected an iPhone in a recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes, your iPhone is in DFU mode now. Click OK to proceed.
