Reasons: What Cause iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo?
Do you know what is going on when your iPhone is restarting? As for a person, we wake up, get out of bed, rinse mouth and wash face. Then, have breakfast to have ourselves charge up and get ready for school or work. It's almost a bunch of set things that we have to do before going to school or work. Similarly, a phone has its set route before it turns on and work.
As your device is booting up, it has to launch its processor, check its memory and set up a slew of internal components before it can perform normally. These serial of startup functions is automatically taking place in the background when your iPhone displays the Apple Logo. And why is stuck? That is because something is going wrong during its startup routine. There are reasons that may result in this situation.
1. It happens after updating to the latest version of iOS. This could be the most reason why people come across this problem. Updating iOS version has to access the core functionality of iPhone. When it goes wrong, your phone will be malfuntioned.
2. It happens after transferring data or restoring contents from iTunes or iCloud backup files. Similar to the update, data transfer and recovery access the core functionality. That may cause some software corruption, which may affect the reboot.
3. Due to jailbreaking. Some iPhone users like to jailbreak their devices so as to unleash the power of iOS. Though it enables users to have complete access to everything in the operating system, it may cause some security or software problems in return.
4. Caused by hardware problem. If you've accidentally dropped your iPhone into water or hard down to ground, it may makes the device broken inside (or outside). For that reason, I'm afraid you should go to Apple store and ask their staff to repair your device.
