How to find out the issue is related to hardware or software?
But first, let’s understand the possible reasons for iPhone black screen or iPhone white screen of death and how to resolve this issue.
Why is my iPhone stuck on a black screen?
The black screen of death on which the iPhone is stuck most of the times happens because of the hardware issues, such as-
- A drained battery
- A broken screen or damaged phone parts.
- Accidentally dropped into the water.
- Issues with a specific app or software.
Why is my iPhone stuck on a white screen?
The reasons behind the white screen of death are somehow similar to that of the reasons for turning into the black screen. Though, this issue may turn more severe as there can be a major software-related issue along with the hardware issue, such as
- An unsuccessful attempt to update the iPhone iOS system.
- Tried to jailbreak your iPhone.
- An outdated app may still be running in the background which your iPhone version doesn’t support anymore.
With people being relied on phones more than ever, the iPhone black or white screen of death problem has become common and many users face these issues every day. One of the basic solutions is to reset your phone. You may lose your data but your phone may start working. But while restarting your phone after a reset, the other problem you may encounter is that iPhone stuck on the Apple logo.
Force restart your iPhone
The force restart is similar to restart or reboot your device but how you perform the task makes a difference. Each iPhone model has distinct button functionality and if you are not familiar with the process then a single false step can harm your phone and you may lose your data. We have explained the force restart for every iPhone model user. Follow the instructions carefully-
- Press and quickly release the Volume Up and Volume Down button simultaneously. Then, press and hold the power/home button till the Apple logo appears. The process can take a few seconds longer if there is a minor firmware issue so keep patience. (For iPhone X, 8 plus, and iPhone 8 users).
- Press and hold the power and volume down button at the same time, together. Hold the keys together until the Apple logo appears. (For iPhone 7 and 7 plus users).
- Press the power and home button together at the same time. Long hold the buttons until the Apple logo appears. (For iPhone 6s, iPad, and other previous models users).
Fix your iPhone with DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode
If force reset didn’t work out and your iPhone’s screen is still black, then updating and restoring your iOS through iTunes may do the trick. All you need is a computer that supports your iPhone model and iTunes version for it. Now, follow the steps:
- Install and launch the latest updated version of iTunes and connect your iPhone to your system.
- Go to the ‘Summary’ tab and click on ‘Restore iPhone’.
- A pop-up message will appear, click on the ‘Restore’ button and allow the process to start.
Your part is done, now iTunes will reset your phone and restart it automatically. If you don’t have a recent backup of your files over any cloud storage you use, there’s a chance the data will be lost.
