iPhone reboots and does not turn on what to do
What to do if iPhone constantly reboots by itself
Even if you use Apple products, this does not give a full guarantee of their stable operation. Unfortunately, any technical device can break or malfunction, including the popular iPhones. And one of the widespread problems is the spontaneous reboot of the iPhone, although the user has not performed any actions for this. And if you encounter such a situation, we advise you to carefully read this instruction, because we have collected almost all the basic causes of such problems, as well as their solutions.
In most cases it will be software failures related to the smartphone firmware, applications, optimization, but there can also be mechanical damage, which we also described in the relevant menu items.
The device does not respond at all
If your iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, or iPhone X does not react at all to your actions, it just hangs and shows a static picture or just a dark screen, you need a restart.
In this case, you should not lose any data that you have been working on, if the corresponding software has an auto-save function. And there will definitely be no reset of the iPhone.
On iPhone 8, 8 Plus, X press and release the volume up button, then press and release the volume down button. And at the end, press and hold the power button until the Apple logo.
If you’re using an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus, press and hold the power button and volume down button for ten seconds or longer until the Apple logo.
If you’re using an iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, or older models, press and hold the home button and power button simultaneously for ten seconds or longer until the Apple logo.
Loads up to the “apple” and it’s lit steadily, it doesn’t load any further
It happens that the iPhone does not turn on, but the apple lights up on the screen. This is usually caused by a failure when restoring the gadget from a backup, a sloppy jailbreak, or an unsuccessful iOS update.
In most cases, this problem can be solved by running on your iPhone recovery mode. Perform the following algorithm of actions:
What to do if your Apple iPhone XR, XS or XS Max won’t turn on
- Run iTunes on your computer and connect the USB cable (don’t connect the USB cable to the phone yet).
- Turn off the iPhone holding down the PowerHome button for 4S/6S, and the “minus” volumePower button for version 7. For the 8/X version, press and quickly release the volume “plus”, then the volume “minus”, and then press the side button for 15 seconds.
- Press Home and connect the USB cable to the gadget.
- Hold down Home until the product displays the plug and the iTunes logo.
Your iPhone does not unlock the screen when you enter the code
Iphone suddenly froze. What to do about it? Reboot!
Hi all! But it’s true, what to do with a hung iPhone? For example, you can throw it away. And from my experience, I can note that some owners of older devices would like to do exactly that. After all, this situation is really wildly annoying. The iPhone screen is lit, but does not respond to touch, pressing buttons, the phone can not even turn off! We just have to look at it and think how good Apple is (sarcasm).
Okay, let’s not scold Tim Cook and his guys. Let’s better get back to our problem. Which, let’s face it, is not very pleasant. However, there is no need to rush to throw away the device (this is not our method!), because to fix freezes (in most cases) can be only 1 minute. Yes, yes, yes, it really is a matter of 60 seconds. If you don’t believe me.? Now see for yourself.
As freezes are most often caused by software glitches, in order to get rid of them it is enough to do just one action. Restarting your iPhone.
But how do you turn your device on or off if nothing happens when you press the “Power” button and the screen? When the iPhone hangs up, you need to do this:
- If you have the iPhone 8 (Plus), iPhone X, iPhone XS (Max), iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro (Max), iPhone SE 2 (2020), iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro (Max), iPhone 13, iPhone 13 mini, iPhone 13 Pro (Max), then you must perform a tricky combination. Ready? Start! Press “Volume Up” (immediately release), “Volume Down” (immediately release), press and hold (10-15 seconds) the “Power” button. Yes, it seems hard at first, but in fact it is very simple. Press and release, press and release, press and hold until the “apple” appears.
- You are a happy iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus owner? It is necessary simultaneously press and hold down two buttons (“switch” and “volume down”) until your smartphone will not reboot (about 10-20 seconds).
- For all other “younger” iPhone models. Press and hold down the two “power” and “home” buttons simultaneously until you restart.
What are these combinations?? Nothing extraordinary. It’s just a hard reset of the device (more details here).
That is all, the problem is solved. And the time is spent a little:) Although.
It is possible that one of the buttons we need is broken. That means you can’t force-switch your iPhone off from a frozen state. What to do in this case? You have two ways:
- Wait for the gadget’s battery to die.
- If you need to go faster, you will need to disassemble the device and disconnect the battery for a few seconds.
As you see there is nothing complicated. The only point. It is better to engage in the assembly-disassembly with some experience or entrust this operation to craftsmen of the service center.
Finally some common questions and answers concerning freezing iPhone:
Absolutely. There is nothing terrible in such things. Despite the fact that iOS is a fairly stable operating system, nothing “software” is alien to it. There is no escape from failures.
Will the iPhone always hang like this now??
How To Fix iPhone That Won’t Turn On
Likely not than not. Usually these are isolated cases and happen rarely.
I jailbreak my iPhone and it always freezes, what should I do??
Jailbreaking is not official tampering with a device’s software. Uninstall it and everything will be “OK”.
Malfunctions always happen only with a certain game or app. Once you open them, the display and buttons stop responding. What should I do??
Do not use this program. Wait until the developers “get into programming” and release a stable update that will not “break” the iPhone.
- Most hangs most often due to software glitches in iOS.
- This problem is very easy to fix. Do a hard reset and everything will be OK.
- Don’t worry too much about it.
P.S. Unfortunately I can’t answer every possible question in this article, so if you have a question, feel free to write it in the Комментарии и мнения владельцев. I will try to help and answer all!
P.S.S. The instruction helped? Like it, hit the social media buttons, and your iPhone will work without errors. It’s worth a try!:)
When it is normal for iPhone to reboot on its own?
Then, when the situation is not on a regular basis. Let me explain with a simple example:
- You bought an iPhone.
- You use it for a few weeks (months, years).
- It suddenly rebooted unexpectedly.
- After that, the phone turned on and continued to work as if nothing had happened.
So this is a normal situation.
Every iPhone I’ve ever used has rebooted at least once or twice (in all the time I’ve owned it) on its own.
Why? I don’t know. Most likely this situation is due to iOS “bugs” and glitches. Then again, iOS is a smart system. So it can reset itself once and thus “clear its head”. Why not?
Conclusion: One forced restart of iPhone (over a long period of use) is quite normal. What to do about it? Get over it. It happens to almost everyone.
The Apple logo hanging on the screen is one of the most common problems iPhone users face. Especially those who have recently bought a device of this brand, and do not yet know about all its features they can easily face the fact that the iPhone hangs on the Apple logo after hacking or restoration. Your precious device will completely turn into a “brick” and cause you a lot of problems and worries: you won’t be able to call someone, text or take a picture.
A typical complaint: “iPhone hangs on the Apple logo (does not turn on and the apple lights up) after the latest iOS update. The phone was following the normal update procedure, but at the end it got hung up (I assume due to a new firmware glitch) on the Apple logo. The update installation indicator has been stuck there for hours”.
There are four methods that can help fix an iPhone hanging on the screen with the Apple logo. They apply not only to iPhone, but also to iPad, iPod touch after updating to the latest version of iOS, hacking, water damage and much more.
Forced reboot iPhone Fix iPhone freeze on Apple logo without data loss (using special software) Restore iPhone to factory settings using iTunes DFU mode (restore frozen iPhone)
There are many reasons why iPhone might get stuck at the Apple logo. It can happen during the upgrade process, data transfer or hacking, or your iPhone can get stuck on the Apple logo after physical damage. Identifying why your iPhone is stuck on the logo is important, so try to understand why it happened. Malfunctions can be divided into two categories: software and hardware.
⦁ Software problems often cause the iPhone to freeze on the Apple logo
Software problems are the most common reasons why your iPhone freezes on the Apple logo. Something may have gone wrong during an iOS update, data transfer, hack or iPhone recovery. And some users using an older version of iOS may also encounter this problem.
⦁ Hardware problems also cause the iPhone to freeze on the Apple logo
Hardware problems are mostly caused by physical damage. For example, you accidentally drop your phone, and that drop can cause internal damage, causing the iPhone to freeze on the Apple logo. Immersion in water can also cause damage to the equipment, resulting in a black Apple logo. So you need to be careful when you take a shower, swim or even just go to the bathroom. It’s best not to take your iPhone with you.
So, the iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo (the device doesn’t turn on and the apple is lit). What to do next?
Force a reboot of the iPhone
Forced restart will not lead to loss of data, and it can help restore the functionality of the iPhone, stuck on the Apple logo. However, be sure to try this method first. Here’s what you need to do to reboot:
Iphone X, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone 11 or iPhone 12, iPhone 8 or iPhone SE (2nd generation): Press and release the two volume up and volume down buttons. Now, while holding the side button, release it until you see the Apple logo. After that, check your iPhone and see if it starts up.
Iphone 7: press and hold down the volume down button and the sleep/wake button simultaneously. When the Apple logo appears, release both buttons.
Iphone 6s or iPhone SE (1st generation): press and hold the sleep/wake button and home button simultaneously. When the Apple logo appears, release both buttons.
Fix iPhone freeze on Apple logo without data loss (via software)
When the iPhone does not turn on and the apple is lit on the screen, most people do not even realize that it can be repaired on their own. That’s why we highly recommend Tenorshare ReiBoot, the best iPhone software repair program. This iOS system recovery tool offers you the most effective way to fix iOS hang problems such as white apple screen, black screen of death, recovery mode, no screen response, appearance of “support.Apple.Com/iPhone/restore” many more. Download this iOS bug fixing tool for free to get acquainted with all its features.
⦁ Download and install Tenorshare ReiBoot on your computer and connect your hung iPhone to your computer with a USB cable. Click on “Get Started”.
⦁ ReiBoot will display the corresponding firmware package that you can download. Download the IPSW file and follow the instructions to repair iOS on your device.
⦁ After system recovery, the Apple logo will appear on your iPhone, and all data on your phone will be restored.
Restore iPhone to factory settings using iTunes
This is another easy way to fix the problem of your iPhone hanging on the Apple logo. In the process, all data on your device will be deleted (so back it up before restoring it).
Run iTunes on your computer, connect your iPhone to your computer with a cable, click on the iPhone icon and select “Browse.
One of the most unpleasant things that can happen to the modern man is when his smartphone stops turning on for some unknown reason. You immediately lose contact with the outside world. You can’t call or text anyone, and no one can contact you either.
In the case of the iPhone, the causes of the problem may be different and, accordingly, it can be solved in several ways.
Forced restart using Reiboot (no data loss) restore via iTunes (with data loss) restore in DFU mode take iPhone to a repair shop
Sometimes iPhone may not turn on due to a non-critical software glitch (such as overflow or RAM errors). In this case the problem will be solved by a forced restart of the device. Hold down the power button for a few seconds until iPhone powers down, then turn it back on. If the problem does not occur again for several minutes or hours, then there is nothing to worry about. The occasional and infrequent freezes are not an indication that something is wrong with your iPhone.
Using Reiboot (without losing data)
Reiboot is one of the best software for recovering iPhone functionality. Available for Windows and Mac, it can solve problems that cause device crashes without destroying user data in the drive. All your files (photos, videos, etc.) will be recovered.), settings and installed apps and games remain intact.
Reiboot program scans the system data, identifies errors in it and fixes them. It’s compatible with all versions of iOS (including the newest iOS 15.X) and most iPhone models (including the iPhone 13 lineup). Reiboot can, among other things, fix an error that causes your iPhone to display a black screen or your iPhone to get stuck in recovery mode (support error.Apple.Com/iPhone/restore).
Reiboot can be used to solve many different problems:
- Iphone freezes
- Iphone keeps rebooting
- Iphone does not turn off
- Screen does not turn on
- Face ID doesn’t work
- Iphone doesn’t charge the battery
- Iphone is stuck in headphone mode
- Iphone doesn’t ring
- Iphone goes into an endless reboot cycle
- Iphone cannot be restored
- Iphone does not restart
- Computer does not recognize iPhone
- Screen doesn’t change orientation
- Iphone is stuck in portrait mode
- Iphone won’t come out of airplane mode
- Iphone won’t come out of “do not disturb” mode
- Their iPhone is stuck at the “no service” message
- Iphone is stuck in the process of shutting down
Reiboot is very easy to use, it has an intuitive interface and no confusing steps. The video tutorial clearly shows you how you can solve the problem with your iPhone not turning on in a few minutes.
Connect the power source
If the steps described above have not worked, it is likely that the device has been completely discharged.
Usually if there is some charge left in the battery, it is enough to notify the user about it by the corresponding icon when you try to turn it on. But if the charge is completely used up, the device won’t be able to warn you about it, as there isn’t even enough battery power to do that.
If the previous method did not help, there is a good chance that the device needs to be recharged. Connect the device to a power source for at least 15-20 minutes. This helps collect the necessary charge and informs you that the power is plugged in and battery charging has begun.
Note: To be sure that the power is supplied to the device, test the plug cable with the other device, so that it does not turn out that it was the “cord” that caused the problem.
If after the specified time you do not notice any changes, go to the next step.
The apple lights up and the iPhone does not turn on
In this case you need to return the firmware.
We need iTunes (I have already written about where to download it and how to install it correctly) and strictly follow the instructions of this manual.
The previous methods did not help? This must be bad. Go to the service center to help you. The only advice is to go to an authorized repair shop and avoid makeshift ones, they can only make the situation worse.
And of course, since the blog inewscast posted instructions for all mobile devices of the Apple company, it would be dishonest not to help owners of iPad or iPod. What should they do if their gadgets won’t turn on?
All methods described above will work for any model of iPad (including hard reset and firmware reset).
But if the iPod won’t turn on, the restart buttons will be different depending on the model:
- Up to 6th generation (classic, video): press the MENU button plus the center selection key.
- 6th edition iPod Nano: two volume keys simultaneously with Power.
- Touch and Nano (7th generation): looking at the iPhone manual.
If the above methods do not solve your problem, then I repeat, it is better not to “rummage” in the unit yourself, and contact an authorized service center.

What a smart author! Thank you, it came in handy!
Thanks a lot to the author! The 2nd point with a hard reset helped:)
Please tell me on the carpet fell and started something wobbly on the charge put it on and shows the apple what to do tell me I think maybe the battery broke off
Maybe the battery, and maybe something else It is hard enough to say without seeing the machine. Take it to the service, it will be more reliable.
It worked before with a hard reset, but this time it didn’t work. Just the apple lights up and then goes out.From last night until today, I’ve been having a hard time.
Thank you so much. I wanted to take it to the repair shop!)
Damn, did not help, tried everything, and reflux, and through the DFU, nothing worked, always this “Error 50”, a very long time I am suffering, but no drop was not, what could it be, please tell me :c
50 error caused by iTunes server connection malfunction. Trying. Update iTunes, disable antivirus, another computer.
I updated iTunes, disabled antivirus, tried from another computer, even the service center could not reflash it(
Some kind of unqualified service center, if they can not flash it they should tell you the reason. Try to go to another one, preferably an official one (addresses and phone numbers are on the Apple website).
I have an iPhone 5c. I put it on charge at 1%. While charging, I used a couple of applications and the internet. Charged to 10%, and then the charge began to wane, although it showed that the device is still charging. I took out the cable and plugged it back in it started charging at 1%. Then it shut down. Hard reset didn’t help. What should I do??
Check again, but with another charger (known to work). Does not help. Then either the battery, or the battery charger, or In general, the service.
Hello, can you help me please?! Iphone 4S is off and USB and iTunes icon is lit. I can’t turn on my iPhone, what do I do?? How do I turn it on?? Tried pressing the HOME and POWER button. The screen goes out, appears apple, and then back to USB and iTunes. Scared?
And if the home button does not work. How to reboot ?
Scared! How nice that there is such a good article. Thank you very much. The deep reset option helped
Good evening! Iphone 5s does not turn on. Precisely, it turns on, the apple lights up for 3 minutes and then shuts down immediately. Tried to update and restore through iTunes failed, it gives error 3194. What does this mean, can you tell me?
Kind! Generally, error 3194 in iTunes, says that the device can not connect to Apple’s servers to update/restore the firmware. Please turn off antivirus, firewall, firewall, check your internet connection, clear “Host” file in Windows. Trying to flash using another computer/wire/USB port. If it did not help, most likely the problem is in the modem, go to the service for “rerolling”.
Good day. I apologize if such a question has already been. I poured some juice into the phone, dried it and charged it (I know I screwed up). Showed charge and then wouldn’t turn on. Took it to a service center where they said it was dead. Brought it home and decided to charge it again (by the voice from above :D). My phone turned on, seemed to boot up, apple appeared, but then it restarted immediately. Disconnected from the charger, it would not turn on again. So, is it possible for the service to misdiagnose? And then what might not work? Charging? Matrix? Or everything is fading? Thanks=)
Kind! Most likely all fading 🙁 Water is a terrible test for the phone, and juice and other drinks. Even more so. Oxidized inside, unfortunately. Although I would try to take it to another service center, too categorical diagnosis put your gadget (although I can hardly judge the damage from this side of the screen).
Thank you so much, I am on a flight and was already desperate)
Help me!Can not turn on my iPhone 5s. Pressing home button and power button did not help. I connect the charger 2 seconds white screen with apple is lit, and so on every time. I have had my iPhone for only 1 month. Who knows please tell me
There is an article on what to do if the iPhone turns on and immediately turns off. Here it is.
Hello, can you help me please?! Iphone 6c doesn’t turn on if I press both buttons it shows a dead battery and attached charging cable. It’s been on charge for over an hour and it still won’t turn on. The phone is new, three months since purchase, not dropped. Handled very carefully.
Hello. If iPhone “shows” the cable is plugged in, it means that the charge is “not going. Check your charger and power adapter.
