How to fix an iPhone stuck in the Apple logo
Not everything was normal, until one day your iPhone got stuck in the Apple logo and you couldn’t even get to the home screen. You may think that it is fine and it will take longer to start this time. But NO!!! It’s more than you imagined, something more serious has happened on your phone.
So, what could be the reason behind the error of the Apple logo stuck? Well, there is probably a problem with the operating system that is preventing the phone from starting normally. It is very difficult for an average user to find out the exact cause of the problem, however, we have tried to write down the most common reasons:
- Problem updating to a new version of iOS.
- Problem breaking phone jail.
- Run a beta version of the iOS that has expired.
No need to worry. Your iPhone is not completely ruined. Here are some easy solutions you can take to get your iPhone out of a startup loop.
Restart your iPhone
The first thing you need to do is to restart the iPhone and try to solve the problem. Press and hold the ON/OFF button and slide it to turn it off. This trick sometimes works, however, in some cases it fails. This simple trick does not give any sigh of relief if your iPhone is completely frozen and does not respond by pressing the sleep/wake button. In such cases, a full restart is required. To do this, follow the steps below:
- First off, at the same time, press and hold the sleep/wake button and the Home button
- Do not release the buttons when the power off slider appears. Press and hold both keys until the screen turns black.
- Wait for the Apple logo to appear. If it does, it is a situation in which everyone wins and the problem is solved.
If it fails, please try the additional solutions below:
