Have you ever had your iPhone freeze at the dreaded Apple logo? Then you are not by yourself. Numerous things, such as a malfunctioning software update, a broken charging connector, or even a hardware malfunction, might lead to this frequent problem. We’ll go over the many solutions for fixing an iPhone that is stuck on the Apple logo in this blog post.
- Repeat Force-Restart your iPhone
- Update iOS in recovery mode
- Use third-party repair software
- Perform a factory reset from the computer
- Restore your iPhone in DFU mode
1. Repeat Force-Restart your iPhone
It’s possible that you’ve force-started your iPhone once. However, forcing a restart repeatedly fixes the issue.
Forcing an iPhone 8 or later to restart:
- Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
- Then press and immediately release the Volume Down button.
- Finally, press and hold the Side button.
- Release the Side button when you see the Apple logo on your screen.
The quickest method for restarting an iPhone that is stuck on the Apple logo is this one.
2. Update iOS in recovery mode
If forcing a restart of your iPhone proves ineffective, updating in recovery mode is typically the next course of action.
You shouldn’t keep running out-of-date software on an iPhone for an extended period of time if you’re utilizing a newer model—the iPhone 11 onward. You run the danger of your iOS freezing during active use or stuck on the Apple logo if you don’t update it on a regular basis.
Your best option is to upgrade your iPhone in recovery by connecting it to a computer because it isn’t loading up and you can’t update it directly through the Settings app.
This can be accomplished with iTunes on a Windows computer or the Finder software on a Mac. Use your connection cable to connect to a computer, then follow the simple instructions to update your iPhone while it’s in recovery mode.
3. Use third-party repair software
Third-party software can be used to fix your iPhone whether you’re on a Mac or a Windows computer.Popular Mac and Windows repair tools include Wondershare DR.Fone, Tenorshare ReiBoot, and iMyFone Fixppo.
Using third-party solutions has the benefit of automatically scanning your iPhone to identify and resolve any underlying problems that could be causing your phone to freeze while booting.
Allow me to take you through the DR.Fone repair process in brief.
- Once connected, put your iPhone in recovery mode and open DR.Fone.
- Select System Repair.
- Then choose the iPhone option Click iOS Repair.
- The Standard Repair option should resolve the issue without deleting your data.
- If your iPhone still gets stuck on the Apple logo after trying the Standard method, retry the process and select the Advanced Repair option this time.
Repair is nearly identical to a factory reset, so whatever tool you select, be prepared to lose files and data you didn’t save up beforehand.
4. Perform a factory reset from the computer
To reset your iPhone in recovery mode, you’ll need to connect it to a Mac or PC because it is stuck on the Apple logo and won’t load. This requires using iTunes on a Windows computer or the Finder software on a Mac.
If your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo, you may factory reset it by following this easy tutorial on how to reset your iPhone on a Mac or PC.
Just a heads up before doing this patch. All of the files and data that you didn’t previously back up to iCloud will be lost. Unfortunately, since your iPhone won’t boot past the Apple logo, there isn’t a method to backup your files in recovery mode.
If you frequently backup your iPhone while it’s turned on, this shouldn’t worry you. However, if you have never backed up before or haven’t done so recently, don’t worry. Restarting your iPhone is what important right now.
5. Restore your iPhone in DFU mode
You can recover your device from any condition by using the DFU mode, which stands for Device Firmware Update. It’s typically the most sophisticated and last option for resolving firmware and software problems with iPhones.
Here is a comprehensive guide on how to enter DFU mode on every iPhone model, as you may be using any device.
Contact Apple Support
Should all else fail and your iPhone remains stuck on the Apple logo, you may want to contact the local Apple repair representative. If you are unsure whether to have it fixed, you can use a different smartphone to get in touch with Apple’s customer service.
It’s not a good idea to spend a lot of time staring at the Apple logo since it can be frightening. One or more of the repairs listed in this article should bring your iPhone back up and running if you follow them carefully.
