Although it is rare, sometimes you find your iPhone stuck on Apple logo while booting. It is extremely annoying and it can drive you really crazy as you don't know the reason behind it. A solution can be to put the iPhone in DFU-mode. What? Yes, you heard me: Device Firmware Update mode. Here is a simple step-by-step guide on how to perform this to save your iPhone from being stuck on the Apple logo all his life.
The iPhone stuck at Apple logo can happen after a jailbreak or an update to the latest OS without enough battery-life. The iPhone stuck on Apple logo is basically the symptom of a booting system related problem. This can be fixed by entering the iPhone in DFU-mode.
iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo
- Turn off your iPhone.
- Launch iTunes on your computer and connect your iPhone with it.
- To start the iPhone, you need to hlid down the power/sleep button AND the home button at the same time for exactly 10 seconds. You really have to be patient performing this step and hlid them for the exact 10 seconds. If not, your iPhone will probably enter into recovery mode and not in the desired DFU-mode.
- When the 10 seconds have passed, let go the power/sleep button but keep hliding the home button!
- Now the Apple logo will appear and the iPhone is starting up the DFU mode. Keep on hliding the power-button until a recovery warning appears in iTunes. You need to be sure you are really in DFU-mode and not in Recovery mode. What is the difference between the two? In DFU-mode the screen is black, and in Recovery mode the screen shows the icon ‘cable connecting to iTunes’ If you did the timing wrong and end up in the wrong mode, you can do the process over and over till you did the counting right.
- Once you have reached this point and you are really in DFU-mode, you can downgrade the system software of your iPhone to get the device up and running again.
