How to Fix a Stuck iPhone

If your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo, it typically indicates that there is a software issue on your device that is preventing it from booting up properly. There are a number of ways to try and fix this, including restarting your device, updating your software, or restoring your iPhone from a backup. We’ll go over all of these options in this article.

Restart your device

If your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo after you restart your device, it means that your device didn’t turn on properly. To fix this, you need to restart your device again. To do this, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds. This will force your device to restart.

Update your device

If your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo after you update to iOS 13, it might be because of a software issue. Here’s how to fix it:

If you updated your iPhone to iOS 13 and it’s now stuck on the Apple logo, you’re probably panicking a little bit. After all, you just updated your phone and now it’s not working. Don’t worry, though, because there are a few things you can try that might fix the problem.

First, try restarting your iPhone. To do this, hold down the Power button until the “Slide to Power Off” slider appears. Swipe the slider to the right to power off your device. Once it’s off, wait a few seconds and then hold down the Power button again to turn it back on.

If restarting doesn’t work, try force restarting your iPhone. To do this, press and hold down the Power button and either Volume Up button or Volume Down button at the same time. Keep holding both buttons until the “Connect to iTunes” screen appears. Once you see this screen, you can let go of the buttons.

If force restarting doesn’t work either, connect your iPhone to a computer using a Lightning cable and open iTunes (or Finder in macOS Catalina). Once iTunes (or Finder) detects your device, you should see a message saying that there is a problem with your iPhone and that it needs to be updated or restored. Click Update to install the latest version of iOS; click Restore if you want to erase your iPhone start from scratch.

Restore your device

If you can’t update or restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
Make sure that your PC or Mac has the latest version of iTunes.
Connect your device to your computer using a USB cable.
If you see the option to Update or Restore, choose Update (not Restore) to install the latest iOS and keep your personal data. Or you can choose Restore if you want to delete all content and settings on your device and start with a fresh installation of iOS.
If asked, enter your passcode. If you’ve never synced with iTunes or set find My iPhone in iCloud, you’ll need to use recovery mode to restore your device. This will erase all content and settings on your device.
Select Update (not Restore) to reinstall iOS and keep your personal data.

DFU mode

DFU mode is the last step on the iPhone rescue mission. DFU mode stands for Device Firmware Update. When you put your iPhone into DFU mode, you are essentially telling it to go into an extremely low-level restore mode that bypasses the current operating system to allow you to update or change it. This can be useful if your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo, stuck in a boot loop, or has a black screen and is unresponsive.

There are two ways to put your iPhone into DFU mode:

1) Open iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone to the computer with a USB cable.

2) Press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for about 10 seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

3) Let go of the Sleep/Wake button but keep holding down the Home button for about 5 seconds, until you see a message in iTunes saying that your iPhone has been detected in recovery mode.

4) At this point, you can let go of the Home button and your iPhone should be in DFU mode.
