    When your device is stuck on the Apple Logo, blank or on a boot loop, a force restart is one of the best options to resolve iOS issues. This is because a force restart is a great way to close any apps and remove any data corruptions that may be affecting the device.

    Step 1: Press and release the Volume Up button.

    Step 2: Press and release the Volume down button.

    If a restart doesn’t work, you may need to connect the device to the computer and restore it in iTunes. But when the computer is unable to detect the device, follow these simple steps to put it in recovery mode before restoring it in iTunes:

    For Newer iPhone Models:

    Step 1: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.

    Step 2: Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.

    Put iPhone 6 and earlier models in DFU Mode:

    • Step 1: Connect the iPhone to the computer using the device’s lightning cable.
    • Step 2: Hold down the Home and the Power button at the same time for at least 8 seconds.
    • Step 3: Let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button until the screen goes black.

    Put iPhone 7 and 7 Plus in DFU Mode:

    • Step 1: Connect the device to the computer.
    • Step 2: With the device connected, hold down the Volume Down and Side button at the same time for about 8 seconds.
    • Step 3: Release the Side Button but continue to hold the Volume down button until the screen goes black.

    Put iPhone 8 and earlier models in DFU Mode:

    • Step 1: Connect the iPhone to the computer.
    • Step 2: Press and release the Volume up button and then press and release the Volume Down button.
    • Step 3: Then press and hold the Side button and the Volume Down button for about 5 seconds.
    • Step 4: Release the Side button, but continue to hold the Volume down button until the screen goes black.

    Once the screen is successfully in DFU mode, iTunes will notify you that a device in recovery mode has been detected. Click “Restore” and wait for iTunes to fix the device. Once the restore process is complete, the device should restart and you can choose if you would like to set it up as new or restore it from a previous iTunes backup.
