Try Hard Reboot Firstly

When you are bothering with one of these issues, your iPhone or iPad is completely dead and even iTunes cannot recognize it. Whenever this happens, give the hard reboot a try may do a favor. Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button simultaneously. Keep holding the two buttons until you see the screen go black and then see the Apple logo on the screen as it restarts.

Sometimes even a hard reboot cannot get iPhone back to normal. I recommend Tenorshare ReiBoot to fix all iOS stuck problems. You can also download iOS firmware to repair iOS operating system to normal.
