Why is My iPhone Screen White with Black Apple?

There are several things which could result in this problem during your phone's start-up routine. The reasons may be:

  • The iOS system has been corrupted by faulty USB ports and being connected to defective USB cables, which can also be the cause to the white dot on iPhone screen.
  • Your iPhone is jailbroken, which means it is not protected by Apple's safeguards and the phone's basic functionality can be accessed. A faulty app could cause your phone to get stuck on white screen with black apple, or the so-called stuck on Apple logo. Jailbreaking is not advisable because when you bypass Apple's programming, you also bypass the security measures installed on the phone, so Apple Support cannot help you because you've gone against their Terms of Use.
  • Your iPhone has encountered some hardware problems during its start-up routine check.
