IPhone stuck on a black screen in a loading circle?4 or more ways to fix

The iPhone is a very stable mobile device, but it can crash for many reasons. Bugy iOS releases, old third-party apps, and corrupted system settings are just a few of them.

If your iPhone crashes, you may see a black screen with rotating circles when the system software tries to recover automatically. However, it may fail and the same screen will continue to be displayed indefinitely.

Forcibly restarting will fix it when the iPhone gets stuck on a black screen with a load circle. If that doesn’t work, you should use recovery mode or DFU mode to fix the problem.

Force restart iPhone

A forced restart (or hard reset) requires a shutdown and power back to the iPhone’s internal circuitry. This will prompt the device to reboot automatically regardless of the state of the system software. You can trigger a forced restart by pressing or holding a set of buttons or a set of buttons that change depending on the iPhone model.

In most cases, forcibly restarting your iPhone is a surefire way to get rid of the black screen due to road circle issues. You can also fix other issues such as iPhone getting stuck in Apple logo and iPhone displaying white screen.

After performing a forced reboot, the iPhone should (hopefully) load iOS without any problems. You can then enter your device passcode to access the home screen.
