People who've tried to jailbreak their iPhones face this problem quite commonly. Those who're just updating or restoring face this too, albeit infrequently. When your iPhone gets stuck at the Apple logo and does not boot up completely, it triggers a mini heart-attack. But it's not all that serious and can be fixed without any difficulty.

So, what could be the reason behind Apple logo stuck error? Well, it could be primarily due to ill-functioning software. There are four easy solutions that can let you resolve this problem. Let's try them out!

iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo: How to Fix

Solution #1: Restart Your iPhone

The simplest way—only if it works– to fix this issue is to restart your iPhone. Just press and hold on the ON/OFF button and slide to power off.

This little trick does the trick in resolving this problem on a few occasions. But if it fails to troubleshoot the problem, continue with the further solutions.

Solution #2: Use Recovery Mode

Try recovery mode to get rid of the Apple logo stuck issue. When your device is in recovery mode, iTunes allows you to restore your device to factory settings with the latest iOS version.

Solution #3: Use DFU Mode

DFU (Device Firmware Update) enables your device to communicate with iTunes even without activating bootloader. Even better, it lets you iPhone to restore from any stage. Give it a try as well to get rid of the problem.

Step #1. Fire up iTunes on your computer. Then, you need to connect your iPhone to your computer.

Step #2. Now, turn off your iOS device. Just in case, you are unable to switch off your device, hold on the sleep/wake button until the screen turns off.

When your device turns off, you need to hold down the on/off button for 3 seconds.

After the 3 seconds, you have to start pressing the Home button while still holding on the ON/OFF button. On your iPhone 7/7 Plus, you need to press the volume down button along with the ON?OFF button.

Make sure to hold both the buttons for 10 seconds. Then, leave the power ON/OFF button but keep holding the Home button. (volume down button on iPhone 7/7 Plus)

Step #3. If the screen of your device remains black and doesn’t display anything, it means you have successfully entered DFU mode.

Note: If you see the Apple logo or Connect to iTunes prompt, it means you are not in DFU Mode. You will have to repeat the process from step 1.

Step #4. You should see a popup window in iTunes. It will prompt you to restore your device. You have the option to restore your iPhone to factory settings or restore from a previous backup.

Now, that's a good way to get your iPhone out of the Apple logo. But what if you have data that hasn't been backed up? Or you're getting errors when you try to restore?

The most notable errors that you'd be getting are 1014, 1015 or the 16xx series of errors while restoring your device via iTunes.

Solution #4: Use Tenorshare ReiBoot

If your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo and you've got data that needs to be backed up, I'm afraid you'll mostly lose the data unless you can kick the iPhone out of the Apple logo by other means. By this, we mean you can use tools like Tenorshare ReiBoot which is fully equipped to fix all sorts of iOS stuck issues like black screen, recovery mode, Apple logo etc.

Step #1. Download and open Tenorshare ReiBoot (Mac | Win)

Step #2. Connect your iPhone

Step #3. Click on Exit recovery mode.

It should mostly help you fix the iPhone's problem.

So, these are the four handy solutions to fix Apple logo stuck error on iOS devices. If you don't want to lose any data at all and wish to fix the issue with ease, then Tenorshare ReiBoot is the right option.

    Ever since I upgraded to 8.4, my phone has been locking up and randomly doing this. I’ve restored it and went back to Beta iOS 9 (Stable as ever now), but it still locked up today. I give up. I’ll let T-Mobile replace my device. I was really trying to hang onto this one, but it is screwed,

  • fake member

    I thank you kind sir for you have helped me fix my mobile phone.

  • SomeCoolGuy

    THANK YOU SO MUCH WORKED LIKE A DREAM

  • thehealthjournall

    it is updating but it still shows connect to itunes on the screen

  • EthanDrury

    For anyone panicking with time taken to restore, I had a 2.23GB download. This, on slow connection, can take 2-5 hours to download. This may be your problem, if so just wait and then the restore works fine.

    • Harold

      thank you very much

  • mayjohnson

    That worked great! FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery that actually describes how to solve the problem in various ways! VERY GOOD!

  • karlie

    I have tried this 2 times and after waiting 3-4 hours for it to restore, a pop up on itunes will come up saying theres an error. Why is this happening?

  • NOSHIT

    Well mines has a broken home button :/

    • Sam

      Mine has a broken lock button :/

      • dagob

        Mine has a broken home, lock buttons :/

  • HUNcamper

    Well, I had pretty much problems, like crashing and stuff, then my iPhone finally gave up: All my manually installed apps (from the appstore) disappeared. I got enough, and deleted ALL the data from it, and started recovering the OS. Then it stuck on the boot logo. But thankfully, I could downgrade to iOS 8.1.2 from 8.1.3 to jailbreak again.

  • THE LIFE SAVER

    THANKS SO MUCH I JUST PLUGGED IT INTO MY COMPUTER THEN IT WORKED INSTANTLY U ROCK!

  • Lester

    I do NOT have a jailbroke phone. I have a 4s 32gb. It is nearly full. It’s been acting crazy the last day or so, freezing up, randomly restarting (prob using too many resources). I started deleting pictures today (thankfully I copied them all before this). I went to check to see how much space I cleared up in settings/general/about and I couldn’t access it, it kept crashing. I went to restart the phone and now it won’t go any further than the apple logo. I have everthing backed up to icloud. Will this program work for me and if it doesn’t, will I lose text messages if I reformat? (and apps?) Ugh this sucks. Wish I could buy an iphone 6. :-/

    • Lester

      thought I’d update… I gave in and restored the phone. I restored from icloud backup and I lost NOT ONE ITTY BITTY ITEM. It even restored a half written text message that was never sent. IDk how THAT happened, but it was like the phone never got locked at all.
      The lesson here: BACK UP TO ICLOUD. PERIOD! ;)

    • Mariah

      I have the same problem right now, its not turning on, it goes to the apple logo then turns black, mine isn’t jailbroken either. for a couple days it was acting dumb too, apps crashing. how did you back it up through icloud?

  • Erik Rutledge

    ok, so this worked almost all of the way. unfortunately after i did these steps another error came up after about 5 minutes of the downloads.It says “There was problem downloading the software for the iphone ‘iphone’. the network connection timed out.” With some arbitrary fine print below that. I’ve tried several times and it happens each time. what do i do?? please reply! thanks ahead of time.
