Sometimes when you restart your iPhone 11, the device can get stuck on the blank screen with the Apple logo on it.

When this happens, most users worry that they may not be able to fix the device, especially since you can’t access any of the settings.

But this is a fairly common problem that we have seen a lot, which means that we have a lot of solutions that you can try to get your device working normally again.

So, under normal circumstances, the Apple Logo will last only for a few seconds on the screen.

But if it gets stuck, then there may be something wrong with the software.

Fortunately, there are a lot of things that you can do to troubleshoot this problem and get the iPhone working properly.

You may therefore experience this issue if you recently replaced or updated a part of the iPhone 11 that may be interfering with the startup process.

If this is what happened, you can just try to remove the part and then reinstall it afterward.

If not, the following solutions should help you gain access back to your device.

Since this problem could be caused by software crashes or apps that may be outdated or misbehaving, a good way to fix it is to force restart the device.

It is generally the simplest solution you can try, but it is also very effective in these situations.
