We came across a few Apple customers complaining that their iPhone keeps showing the Apple logo and then turns off. After our due diligence, we figured out that the issue is quite concerning as the number of customers struggling with it is increasing. We got into action and ran a few tests to come up with possible solutions. In this post, we will discuss some of the practical ways you can fix your iPhone that keeps showing the Apple logo before turning it off. We will share several unique solutions worth giving a shot. So, let’s cut to the chase and get started! 

How to fix iPhone shows Apple logo and turns off?

Here are a few methods we recommend you use to solve the problem of iPhone showing Apple logo and then turning off. These methods should be applied chronologically.

Method 1: Charge your iPhone

Your iPhone won’t function or start if it doesn’t have enough juice in the battery. It might show the Apple logo but will not boot up due to the extremely low battery percentage. Maybe you did not use the iPhone for a long time. Smartphones tend to lose charge even when you don’t use them. We suggest you plug the charger in and let your iPhone charge for some time. Once charged, try restarting the device to check if it works. Move to the next method if this doesn’t work.

Method 2: Force restart to fix iPhone shows Apple logo and turns off

We have solved many temporary glitches using a hard reset. And it is very easy to do! iPhones that don’t have any firmware or hardware issues usually start working after a hard reset. You can perform a hard reset by pressing the right combination of buttons. Check out the image below to get an idea. You will have to press the buttons at the same time and hold them until the Apple logo appears on the screen.
