Sometimes using a particular application can also cause the iPhone screen to become black and get stuck. If this happens, it should be a problem with the application itself. Another possibility is that the application is loading something, whether it is downloaded from the Internet or some library is loaded on the device itself and is displayed in black when the material is downloaded or loaded into the application itself. When you load a video to watch, sometimes apps like Netflix or YouTube may appear, especially if your internet connection is slow.

  • A. Exit the application and return to the main screen.
  • B. Open the App Store and go to the Updates tab and install all available updates for the app.
  • C. Restart the iPhone.

4. High temperature

Apple said that if the internal temperature of the device exceeds the normal operating temperature range, the device will try to adjust its temperature to protect internal components, which may also cause the display to become dark or black.

Apple’s mobile phone operating temperature environment is about 0-35 degrees, if the operating temperature is too high, it will cause the screen to darken or black screen, then you can not continue to use.

If you see a line on the black screen on your iPhone and the iPhone screen cannot be corrected by itself when you reboot, you may need to send it to an authorized service center to fix it.

What should I do if the iPhone screen is stuck black with a white Apple logo?

If the iPhone screen turns black but the white Apple logo is displayed before it returns to normal, the device is restarting. Such sudden occurrences usually indicate that the iPhone crashes or an application crashes causing the device to reboot. If it’s a specific application that causes the device to crash, updating the app to the newest version via the App Store.
