Q: Why Is Your iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo?

There are three possible reasons why your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo. There could be physical damage that occurred to the iPhone. The phone could have a component with liquid damage. Lastly, your iPhone could have some software damage.

  • Physical damage to the iPhone. If you accidentally dropped your iPhone, you may likely have damaged the internal hardware. The damaged component could impact your iPhone's ability to get past the Apple logo.

  • If you're 100% sure the Apple screen of death was caused by physical damage, you will need to get it repaired. Many times the iPhone can be restored cheaply and in as little as 30 minutes.

  • Liquid damage. All too often, we put our iPhones nearby water. As a result, it is prevalent to have the iPhone exposed to water. Still, unfortunately, even a tiny droplet can affect the internal hardware of your device. When this happens, you may observe your iPhone won't turn on past the Apple logo.

  • A straightforward solution is to turn off your iPhone 13 and place it in a bag of rice for 24 hours. If this doesn't correct the issue, some physical damage inside will need to be repaired.

  • Software issues. The most common reason for the Apple Logo being stuck on the screen is software issues. Often, software issues are caused by either a failed update, an older version of the Apple iOS, or a jailbroken iPhone 13.
