When you see the Apple logo stuck on iPhone, avoid the urge to run to the Apple Store to get an expensive repair or replacement. You can solve the problem by yourself for free. You might have already tried a common solution that you found elsewhere on the web that requires you to hold the volume “+” button down for five to ten minutes after cycling power: That solution doesn’t work. Stop wasting your time and let Bruce Tyson help you out of this jam.
Apple logo stuck on iPhone
An iPhone that displays the Apple logo and never displays either its login or main screen is stuck in an endless boot cycle. Although this condition often results from a jailbreaking attempt, it can happen to anyone whose phone encounters a variety of circumstances, including the interruption of an operating system update.

Our clients have described this problem as “iPhone stuck Apple logo,” “iPhone Apple logo stuck,” or “iPhone stuck at Apple logo” and also report this in association with another problem: “iPhone stuck on Apple logo after jailbreak.” In many cases, the owner of the iPhone doesn’t know what happened. All they know is that their iPhone is stuck on Apple logo.
How to fix iPhone stuck on Apple logo
You might have already wasted a lot of time holding down your volume button for ten minutes or longer as part of your desperate effort to salvage your device. In fact, your finger might be sore from the failed effort. The following procedure will help you when you realize the truth: “my iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo.”
- Connect your iPhone to a computer that has iTunes installed using the USB cable.
- Start iTunes on the computer.
- Shut down your iPhone. Do this by simultaneously pressing the power button and the home button. If, after the screen “dips” to black, the Apple logo reappears, repeat the process and continue holding the buttons past the first “dip.” Your phone is off when you release the buttons and the screen remains blank.
- Press the power button and then immediately press and hold the “Home” button.
- Continue pressing the “Home” button until iTunes pops a message asking you to choose between updating and restoring your phone.
- We recommend that you first try the “Update” button. iTunes will attempt to update the operating system on your iPhone.
- If you receive a message that says that the update process failed, accept the result and then click the “Restore” button. iTunes will restore your phone to its factory settings.
- Your iPhone will reboot as part of the restoration process. When it reboots again, it will prompt you for your Apple ID and go through the setup process. After setting up your iPhone, you will have to re-install your apps.
Rather than paying to either repair or replace your iPhone when it gets stuck on the Apple logo, save your money by fixing your iPhone. The above procedure will result in either your phone being updated to the current operating system or it being restored to its original condition. From our experience, we would say that the latter is the most common outcome of the “stuck on logo” problem.
