To Avoid iPhone Stuck on Apple Logo

Although this post shows how to fix iPhone stuck on Apple logo and introduces how to easily and quickly recover data from white Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch with MiniTool Mobile Recovery for iOS, you had better pay attention to some details to avoid getting iPhone into white Apple screen of death. 

1.Take care of your iOS device. 

2.Use a protective case with extended edges to prevent direct contact of the iPhone with the surface that it fell on. As we know, minimal impact means minimal chances of hardware abnormality resulting from the drop. 

3.Do not use your device for a long time since extra stress on the battery and other hardware resources of the iOS device, sometimes, may cause the iPhone stuck on Apple logo. 

4.Shut down your iPhone once a month and then turn it back on after several seconds because your iPhone runs non-stop for you, fetches all your emails, and keeps all your pictures safe. This simple activity will minimize the chances of iPhone stuck on Apple logo. 

5.Update your iOS devices to the latest iOS 9.X to Fix iOS 7 'White Screen of Death'. 

6.Think twice before jailbreaking. Although jailbreaking iPhone or iPad will give you the ability to add non-Apple free applications and functions onto the device, it may cause your iPhone stuck into Apple logo.

Even if you need to jailbreak it, please backup all desired data in advance. …...
