How to Fix if iPhone won’t turn on or is stuck on a black screen

A quick fixes to iphone stuck on black screen with apple logo.

In order to maximize screen space, the new iPhones don’t have any buttons at all. However, this can lead to problems when the screen goes blank and won’t turn on. Smartphones with non-responsive touchscreens are worthless.

It’s good that every “Black Screen of Death” glitch on the iPhone has a solution. You may merely need to let the iPhone alone for a few minutes or connect it to your computer, depending on the severity of the problem.

Here’s what to do if your iPhone is stuck on a black screen and some tips on how to avoid a black screen in iPhone in the future.

Here is how to fix your iPhone’s black screen:

Make sure your iPhone is charged

This may sound obvious, but make sure your iPhone’s battery isn’t fully dead before you become too worried. Empty battery symbols are commonly seen on an iPhone that isn’t fully charged. On the other hand, a completely dead battery may result in a blacked-out screen.

Charge your iPhone via a wire if at all feasible. For at least an hour, keep your iPhone connected to a working charger. Go to the following step if it still doesn’t work when you get back to the house. When your iPhone isn’t in its case, you should be able to feel the back of it. An overheated iPhone will need to be cooled down before it can be used again in very hot conditions. Allow it to cool down in a cool place for a while before serving.

Put your iPhone into recovery mode

If your iPhone is in recovery mode, it may be fixed by connecting to a computer through USB. The most common method is to update your phone’s operating system, iOS, to the latest version.

You must connect your iPhone via USB to a Mac or PC and then do a hard reset in order to go into recovery mode on your device. In Finder or iTunes, choose either Update or Restore, depending on your preference. You’ll be alerted before making a decision on how to recover.

Resetting your iPhone

A button combination on every iPhone allows you to “hard reset” the device by turning it off and back on again. In order to get the best results, you need to know the type of iPhone you possess.

  • If you don’t have a Home button on your iPhone (iPhone 8 and later), you may press and hold the volume buttons, followed by the side button, until the Apple logo shows.
  • Hold down the Home and Lock buttons simultaneously on an iPhone 6s or earlier or an iPhone SE (first generation) until the Apple logo appears.
  • Press and hold the volume down and lock buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears on an iPhone 7 or 7 Plus.

Get in touch with the Apple team

Any of these approaches that don’t work indicate that you’ve run into a problem that you can’t fix by yourself. A faulty component, such as the wire supplying electricity to your iPhone’s screen, is most likely to blame.

Contact Apple via phone or email or stop by a local Apple shop to see what they have to offer. Depending on your warranty, they may even repair your iPhone for free. You may also go to a third-party repair shop if it’s more convenient for you. It’s important to remember that this might void your warranty.

Some tips to avoid black screens on your iPhone in future

A blank screen may be frightening, particularly if your iPhone is vital to your business or social life. So, after you’ve repaired the black screen, make sure it doesn’t return.

Remove faulty applications

If you begin seeing black displays after installing an app, the two may be linked. Uninstall any recent applications and keep using your phone.

Keep your iPhone cool

An iPhone that is too hot or cold may shut down and display a blank screen, or worse; the battery may die. This might be a huge issue if you’re using numerous high-performance applications or have a thick case on your iPhone. So keep it warm.

To sum up,

If you are unable to fix your iPhone’s black screen using the techniques above, or if your iPhone’s screen has gone black, but the phone continues to function, you should seek iPhone screen repair assistance from a nearby retailer. If your iPhone is still under warranty or covered by an AppleCare plan, bring it to the nearest Apple store for assistance.

That wraps our discussion on how to fix the iPhone’s black screen and won’t turn on the issue. We hope these approaches prove beneficial to you.
