iPhone Shows White Screen with Black Apple? Here Are 3 Solutions

Question: My iPhone is showing only a white screen with black Apple logo after I tried to erase my iCloud.

If you tried to restart your phone and now it’s stuck on a white screen with a black Apple logo, it is because something went wrong during your phone’s start up routine. When your phone encounters a problem like this, its default reaction is to stop all processes which are what it does - hence the reason why the phone is stuck.

Why iPhone Shows White Screen with Black Apple

There are several things which could cause a problem during your phone’s start up routine. It could be because:

  • your software has been corrupted by faulty USB ports and being connected to defective USB cables.
  • your phone 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 the Apple logo. Jailbreaking is not advisable because when you bypass Apple’s programming, you also bypass the security measures installed on the phone. In a situation where a problem like this comes up, most of the proffered solutions might not work for you and Apple Support cannot help you because you’ve gone against their Terms of Use.
  • your phone has encountered some hardware problems during its start-up routine check.
