01 Two Simple Ways to Fix
If your iPhone have stuck on the dead battery screen or the dead battery charging screen for a while, following are two simple ways you can try to fix the problem.
Change to Another USB Cable
The first thing to consider is the problem of your USB cable. You can check and fix this problem by allowing your battery to drain completely and then use another USB cable to charge your phone. If the problem was your former USB charger, then your phone should get out of that dead battery screen immediately you plug it to a new charger cable.
Drain iPhone's Battery
Draining your iPhone’s battery once in a while can help you recalibrate the battery. Therefore, if your iPhone ever gets stuck on the dead battery screen, doing this might help you fix the problem.
Step 1. Put your iPhone to full use by turning on features that are likely to drain the battery fast such as full-screen brightness, turning on the flashlight, etc.
Step 2. When your iPhone goes off, leave it in that state for a while so that the battery can drain the more.
Step 3. Plug the charger and let the phone power on.
Step 4. Hold the power button and turn it back off then leave it plugged for a minimum of five hours.
Step 5. After five hours, turn your iPhone back on with the charger still connected.
Step 6. Once it is back on, unplug it from the charger.
If this does not work and you are certain that your iPhone’s battery is not damaged, then you may have to consider other methods of getting your iPhone out of dead battery (charging) screen.

After 10 seconds, release the 'Power' button ('Volume Down' button ) but keep holding the other one until you see the black screen indicating that your device is connected to iTunes. Your iPhone now is in DFU mode.
- If you use iPhone 8/X/11/12: you need to connect iPhone to PC and give a quick press to 'Volume Up' button followed by 'Volume Down' button. Now press the 'Power' key for 10 seconds and when the screen goes black, release it and then immediately hold down 'Volume Down' and 'Power' buttons together for nearly 5 seconds. In the end, release the 'Power' button and continue to hold the 'Volume Down' button for 5-7 seconds until iTunes shows you that the device is detected and the screen turns black.
Once your device is in DFU mode, wait for a while and disconnect your device from the PC. Take your charger (make sure it is an original one) and start charging your device. In such cases, your iPhone uses way less energy mainly because the display stays off. Wait for about half an hour and then reboot the iPhone in order to have it properly booted.
