Apple On Iphone What To Do If The Smartphone Freezes Or Restarts On The Boot Screen
Sometimes iPhone owners are faced with an unpleasant phenomenon. the Apple logo appears on the screen and the device ceases to show signs of life. This usually happens after installing updates or crashing applications. The iPhone freezes or reboots “on an apple,” making future use impossible. What to do in this case, we will describe below.
Force reboot iPhone
Sometimes getting rid of an apple on a dark screen helps force a reboot of the device. iPhone 7 and newer models can be rebooted by simultaneously pressing and holding the power button and volume control for 10 seconds.
To restart earlier models, press and hold the Power and Home buttons for 10 seconds.
We talked about rebooting in more detail in this article.
Updating iPhone in Recovery Mode
If a forced reboot did not help, try updating iOS in Recovery Mode. This method allows you to reinstall the operating system without changing the data stored on the device. However, it is effective only if the screen with the logo appeared as a result of a failure during the iOS update process. If the problem is related to the hardware “stuffing” of the device or jailbreak, this method will not help.
To upgrade iOS in recovery mode, you will need a desktop computer with the latest version of iTunes and a USB cable.
one. Open iTunes on your computer.
2. Activate recovery mode.
On iPhone 7 You can activate the recovery mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the power button and volume down control until the smartphone turns off. Then, on the smartphone, hold down the volume down button and continuing to hold it, connect the iPhone using the USB cable to a computer with iTunes installed. After about 10 seconds, the iTunes logo with the cable appears on the iPhone screen, and in iTunes on the computer a notification appears that the iPhone was detected in recovery mode.
On earlier iPhone models You can activate the recovery mode by simultaneously pressing and holding the power button and the Home button until the smartphone turns off. Then, on the smartphone, hold down the Home button and continuing to hold it, connect the iPhone using a USB cable to a computer with iTunes installed. After about 10 seconds, the iTunes logo with the cable appears on the iPhone screen, and in iTunes on the computer a notification appears that the iPhone was detected in recovery mode.
3. In iTunes, click on “Refresh”.
The above steps will update the device firmware. If the logo screen does not disappear, try again, however select “Restore”. Please note that in this case all iPhone settings will be reset to factory settings (all data will be deleted). You can restore them from backups.
Reset (flashing) iPhone in DFU mode
You can get rid of the logo screen by resetting the settings in DFU mode. In this case, all data on the device will be lost, so before proceeding, make sure that you have all the necessary backups.
In detail about how to enter the iPhone in DFU mode, we talked about in this article.
If the problem is jailbreaking, and you cannot delete the tweak or application, resetting the settings in DFU mode will most likely be the only way out.
What to do if the logo screen does not disappear and the iPhone still does not work
If rebooting the device, updating the firmware, or even resetting the settings did not help, the problem may be hardware related. In this case, it is best to contact a service that specializes in repairing Apple products.
