But as stressful as it can be to have a device that is stuck on the Apple logo, there are solutions that you can try and this article will share with you the most effective of these solutions.

But let’s, first of all, take a look at some of the reasons why your device is behaving this way.

Possible Causes for "iPhone 11 Pro Stuck on Apple Logo"

To know how to fix the problem, it is important to understand what causes this issue. There are very many reasons why your iPhone 11 Pro may be stuck on the Apple Logo. They include the following;

The most common reason why your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo is a system glitch. There could be a system setting or a rogue app that is keeping your device from starting up properly.

These system bugs can prevent your device from going past the Apple Logo during the start-up process.

It is also possible that the device has run out of power, with just enough to get into the boot process, but not to go all the way.

You may even have put the device in a different boot mode by holding down one of the buttons without realizing it.

A failed update process can also cause a device to get stuck on the Apple Logo. This is especially true if you began to experience this problem soon after or during an iOS update.

Perhaps the update was interrupted for one reason or another such as a power failure, a system glitch, or a problem with the update itself.

Whatever the reason, the following are some of the solutions that you can try;

Force Restart Your iPhone 11 Pro (Must-Try)

One of the easiest solutions to try for an iPhone 11 Pro stuck on the Apple Logo is a forced restart. It is ideal because it forces the device to shut down, closing all the rogue apps that may still be running in the background. To force restart an iPhone 11 Pro, follow these simple steps;

  • Step 1: Quickly press and release the Volume Up Key.
  • Step 2: Quickly press and release the Volume Down Key.
  • Step 3: Then, press and hold the Side button for about 10 seconds and let it go when you see the Apple Logo appears on the screen.

This method doesn’t cause data loss, so you don’t have to worry about creating a backup.

Perform a DFU Mode Restore for iPhone 11 Pro

DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode is the deepest form of restore that you can choose to use on your device and it can be useful when recovery mode fails to fix the problem. It allows iTunes to still communicate with the device with the bootloader deactivated.

It is important to note however that you should never attempt a DFU restore on a device that has suffered liquid damage as there is a high chance that the process will not be completed.

That said, here’s how to restore an iPhone 11 pro in DFU mode;

  • Step 1: Connect your iPhone to the computer and then open iTunes or Finder.
  • Step 2: With the device connected, press and release the Volume Up button.
  • Step 3: Then press and release the Volume Down button.
  • Step 4: Press the Side button until the device’s screen goes black.
  • Step 5: Continue to hold the Side button and press and hold the Volume Down button. Keep holding both buttons for 5 seconds.
  • Step 6: Release the Side button, but continue to hold the Volume Down button for another 10 seconds.

If the device’s screen remains black after 10 seconds, the device is successfully in DFU. You should see a popup message appear on the screen in iTunes saying, ““iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode and that you must restore it before it can be used with iTunes.”

Click “Restore iPhone” and follow the on-screen instructions to complete the process. Once the restore process is complete, the device should start in normal mode and the problem should be resolved.
