What To Do If Your iPhone Is Stuck on the Apple Logo

Is your iPhone 6 stuck on the Apple logo? This can happen because of faulty updates or during the restoration of corrupted iOS files in iTunes or iCloud. Issues with security software or defective USB cables or ports can also cause trouble during the data transfer process. Here are some easy steps you can take if you find yourself facing this issue.


Restart your iPhone

Your first step should be trying to do a forced restart with your iPhone 6. This can help fix software glitches that have caused your phone to get stuck. To restart your device, have your iPhone powered off. Then press and hold the power button and home button at the same time for about 10 to 20 seconds. Release both buttons when the Apple logo pops up on your screen. If your phone is able to boot up, you’ll see the home screen. It’s then a good idea to do a factory reset to erase any malware that might have been causing the issue.

Restore or update your iOS version

If restarting your phone didn’t do the trick, try restoring and updating your iPhone 6 using iTunes on your Windows PC or Mac. First, open iTunes on your computer (note: it’s a good idea to always have the latest version of iTunes software to prevent glitches!), and connect your phone using a USB cable. You might see an option to “Trust this computer” on your phone. Then, select iPhone 6 when it comes up in iTunes. Click on “Restore Backup” in iTunes, look for the iOS backup file that you want to use, and click “Restore.” Don’t disconnect your phone until after it fully syncs with your computer.

Go to recovery mode

If the regular restoring method didn’t work for you, you can try a recovery mode restore next. Connect your phone to your computer and open iTunes. Force restart by pressing and holding the power and home buttons simultaneously until the “Connect to iTunes” screen pops up. Then click “Update” so iTunes can reinstall iOS without you losing any of your data. iTunes will then download the software and set up your device when the entire process is finished.

Try DFU mode

If the regular recovery mode doesn’t work either, there’s also DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode, which allows you to restore or update your device even when the software has been completely compromised. To do this, connect your iPhone to your computer with your USB cable, and open iTunes on your computer. Press and hold down the power and home buttons for 10 seconds (if you see the Apple logo, you’ve held the buttons for too long and will need to start over!). Then, release the power button but keep holding the home button down for about five seconds (if you see the “Plug into iTunes” screen you’ve held the button too long and will need to begin again!). If your screen stays black, then you’ve made it to DFU mode! A message will pop up saying that iTunes has detected your iPhone 6, and you can then start the restoring process.

After trying the force restart, if your phone is still stuck on the Apple logo then the safest and most reliable option would be to try the dr.fone-repair recovery software.

The best part about this option is that whilst it fixes your iOS device and sets it back to normal, it does so without creating any data loss.
