iPhones and iOS devices are manufactured by Apple Inc who takes special care and attention in making some of the finest devices available in the market. So, with an iPhone, it is very unlikely to have trivial issues. But we know, nothing lasts forever and even the high end iOS devices can also have a downfall. iPhones suffer problems like frozen screen, stuck at a particular Apple logo or simply refuse to turn on ad the screen remains black. All these scenarios are termed as dead iPhone events.

When The iOS Device Does Not Turn On

If your iPhone does not turn on or start, then first plug your device to charge. Charge the device for atleast one hour. A few minutes after that, the charging icon should show up on the screen.  If it doesn’t happen, then check if the charger has been plugged in correctly, check the jack, clean the dirt and dust, if any. You can also switch to a different USB cable or power adapter, if you have. If all of these fail, then contact Apple support as they are your last resort in this case.

If your screen is Frozen or Black

In such cases, you should try to force restart your device. Relax, it is not hard reset and hence won’t wipe away your data. Here are the steps to follow for different iOS devices. Let’s start with iPhones first.

  • For iPhone 6s and earlier, iPod Touch, you have to press and hold the Home and top buttons simultaneously for a minimum 10 seconds. The Apple logo should appear.
  • For iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, you have to press and hold the side and Volume up buttons for a minimum 10 seconds and the Apple logo should appear.
  • For iPhone 8 and newer versions of iPhones, press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Then again, press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Next, press and hold the Side button until you see the Apple logo.
  • For iPad Pro 11-inch and iPad Pro 12.9-inch: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button and the same combinations for the Volume Down button as well. Then press and hold the Power button and wait for the device to restart.

If your iOS device gets Stuck To Apple Logo

You can force restart and follow the same steps as for the frozen device or black screen issue.
