How To Fix a Flashing Logo on an iPhone or iPad

Apple is one of the world leaders in technology. Millions of people use Apple devices all over the world, as they are some of the best products available. However, even Apple isn’t without their faults. Some of the Apple devices such as iPhones and iPads have had a few problems, but none too serious that they are unfixable.

Some Apple users have recently reported having problems when trying to start up their device. They have said that when the iPad or iPhone is connected to a power source, the iOS device will not start up at all.

According to the users, when the device is plugged into a power outlet and they attempt to start it up, the Apple logo appears for a few seconds, then disappears, leaving a blank screen. The blank screen stays up for just a couple of seconds and then the Apple logo appears again flashing incessantly, but never actually starting up the device. It is just on an Apple logo loop.

If you are experiencing this rather annoying problem on your iPhone or iPad, we have listed some ways to try and fix the problem here:

1. The first thing to try is forcing your device to start up.

  • Connect your device to the charger and leave it for at least 15 minutes.
  • If you own an iPhone 7:
    • Press and hold the power button and volume down button at the same time until you see the Apple logo.
    • Ignore the ‘Slide to Power Off’ screen if you see it.
  • If you own another Apple device (iPhone 6, iPad, etc.):
    • Press and hold the power button and home button down at the same time.
    • Ignore the ‘Slide to Power Off’ screen if you see it.

2. If the problem persists, follow these steps in order to fix it (you will need a computer with iTunes downloaded):

  • Turn off your Apple iOS device.
  • Connect your device to the computer using a USB cable.
  • Next, open iTunes on your computer.
  • If you have an iPhone 7:
    • Press and hold the power button and volume down button at the same time until you see a screen that says ‘Connect to iTunes’ or ‘Recovery Mode’.
  • If you have a different Apple device (iPhone 6, iPad, etc.):
    • Press and hold the power button and the home button at the same time until you see the ‘Recovery Mode’ screen.
  • After you have done this you will see a message on iTunes saying that it has detected an iPhone or an iPad in recovery mode and you will see two options: Restore or Update.
  • You will choose Update and your problem should be fixed.
