Many iPhones 11 stuck on the Apple logo, and users don’t have a clue on what to do next. It’s a bothersome state your iPhone is in, and there are several ways you can get it out of the Apple logo loop. We cannot assume the device’s current situation based on random answers found on forums. We will take two approaches and find out whether this is a software-based problem or a hardware-level problem. We have suggested viable solutions to get your iPhone out of the Apple logo.
Why is my iPhone keeps showing the Apple logo?
I recall an incident that happened several years back, where the iPhone stuck on the Apple logo. The iPhone 4S had a motherboard level problem, and the company asked us to purchase a new one instead of repairing it. In another incident, the iPhone 4 had a software problem and was resolved with software repair. iOS system fundamentals haven’t changed much over the years, and they remained the same for several editions.
Corrupted software is the main culprit when the iPhone 11 is stuck on the Apple logo. The drivers might have been corrupted, so the startup process is interrupted due to the non-working components in the iOS system. We will resolve the problem using the official solutions and then move on to utilizing Tenorshare ReiBoot to repair the software.
Force Restart iPhone 11
You have to press the volume button, then release it quickly.
- Press and quickly release the “Volume Up” button.
- Press and quickly release the “Volume Down” button.
- Press and hold the “Sleep/Wake or Side” button for a few seconds.
- Release the “Sleep/Wake or Side” button when the Apple logo shows up on the screen.
iPhone will carry out the command programmed at the factory. Corrupted software cannot deny the action, and it will force restart of the iOS system from the get-go.
Restore iPhone 11 in iTunes via Recovery Mode
iPhone has an advanced option called “Recovery Mode” that puts your device into a reconstruction state. You may have heard about iTunes, which is a proprietary PC suite from Apple developers. You can restore the iOS software or update the iOS update to the latest version without worrying about damaging the hardware.
Disconnect the iPhone from the PC, when the “Hello World” screen shows up on the screen. You have spent waiting patiently for almost half an hour, and a slower download speed increases the restoration process duration. Do not worry if the iPhone only shows the Apple logo even after applying the solution.
