The stuck Apple logo is among the most annoying issues when it comes to Apple devices. This issue sometimes emerges when you are updating or restoring your device. Even though it’s not a serious problem, it may give you a lot of work to do.
There are a couple of solutions you can deal with the stuck Apple logo issue, ranging from rebooting your device to using a third-party app. If you are struggling to fix the issue, don’t panic because we are here to help.
In this guide, we will walk you through the steps to fix the stuck Apple logo issue. Before trying to do anything, make sure you reboot your device to see if the problem is fixed. If you now own a 2017 iPhone model, the method used to reboot your device is different than past models. To do this, press and release the Volume Up button, then press and release the Volume Down button and hold the side button until you see the Apple logo. If the problem still persists, make sure you read on.
Use recovery mode
Recovery mode serves as one of the best tools to deal with the stuck Apple logo issue. If you need help, make sure you check out our steps below.
Step one: Switch off your iPhone. To do this, press and hold down the On/Off button for 3 seconds
Step two: Now just simply swipe the slide to the right to turn off your device. After that, press and hold down the home button and plug your iPhone to your computer
Step three: Release the home button when you see the Connect to iTunes screen. Once your iPhone is in recovery mode, you will get the option to restore your device.
Use DFU mode
If the problem is still present, the best shot is to put your iPhone into DFU mode. When your device is in DFU mode, it can still communicate with iTunes on your computer, without activating the boot loader or iOS. This allows you to restore your iOS device from any state. The method used to put your device into DFU mode is not simple. We will show you how in the section below.
Step one: First off, plug your iPhone to your computer (make sure iTunes is running on your computer) and then switch off your device
Step two: Next up, press and hold down the On/Off button for 3 seconds and then press and hold down the home button (make sure you keep the On/Off button pressed)
Step three: Keep holding both buttons for 10 seconds. After that, release the On/Off button while holding the Home button for 5 seconds. If your iPhone’s screen stays black, your device is now in DFU mode.
Once you are done, restore your device to factory settings or restore from a backup. If none of the above-mentioned solutions work for you, read one.
Use a third-party app
Using a third-party app can be your last hope for success. This method is not highly recommended to all users, as it may result in some unexpected issues. There are a ton of apps out there that help you deal with the issue, but we recommend you use an app dubbed dr.fone – Repair.
Step one: Head over to this link and download the app. Once done, open the app on your computer and then select Repair
Step two: Connect your iPhone to your computer and hit Start
Step three: Now put your device into DFU mode and follow the on-screen instructions to restore your device.
