1. iPhone Stuck in Recovery Mode

iPhone stuck in recovery mode is one of the most serious circumstances after a failed iOS upgrade, terribly jailbreak or iTunes restore. You can see a "Connect to iTunes" logo and cannot do anything with your device. Normally you can perform a force restart by holding both Power button and Home button, or use iTunes restore to fix iPhone stuck in recovery mode. But both of these methods cannot guarantee a 100% successful repair.

2. iPhone Stuck in DFU Mode

Sometimes your device becomes unresponsive for some unknown reasons and a DFU restore will be a quick way to bring iPhone back to normal. But accidents do occur when trying to exit DFU mode, it gets stuck and becomes totally bricked. iTunes is still the first choice but not the most effective one.

3. iPhone Stuck in Zoom Mode

Zoom is a helpful feature in iOS as it makes it easier to read text and view passages, especially for the elder generation. Nevertheless, it also can be a source of frustration when it gets stuck. In this case, you can see zoomed screen and won’t exit when tapping on it. The recommended way in the Apple community is to double-tap on the zoomed screen with three fingers, but sometimes it just fails to work.

4. iPhone Stuck in Shuffle Mode

If you have upgraded to iOS 10, one of the improvements you might notice is the Music app. The totally redesigned interface offers you cleaner and simpler experience. However, some users ran into the shuffle mode and cannot turn off the Music after trying all the available methods. In this case, they may resort to a third-party tool.

5. iPhone Stuck in Mute Mode

The symptoms of mute mode are pretty evident, when you change the volume level it won't increase any volume but only give you a notice saying "ringer (headphones)". You should try to clean the headphone jack manually, if the problem still exits, you may need a little expert assistance.

6. iPhone Stuck in Safe Mode


Most of the iPhone users may have never heard of safe mode as this is only happens in jailbroken iPhone. Safe mode is used to protect your iPhone from destroyed and remove corrupted processes. Sometimes incompatible packages will cause iPhone stuck in safe mode and become unresponsive. Remove erratic package would be the way to go.

7. iPhone Apple Logo Screen

This is another common problem that many iPhone users have met especially after iOS updating or jailbreak. Some people think their device is ruined when the apple logo appears and won't disappear. Actually this is really not that serious. Try to put iPhone into recovery mode or DFU mode can fix this issue in most cases, but it may erase some of your precious data.

8. iPhone Black Screen

This is also called black screen of death. If you search the solution in the internet, most of them recommend restarting or resetting your device, but I don't think a restart can fix this as the reason for the black screen is usually hardware problem or firmware hitches.

9. iPhone Blue Screen

Similar to the black screen of death, iPhone blue screen is also one of the common screen stuck cases. But the reasons for this stuck is usually due to app problems or applications incompatible. To fix this error, you really need some professional help.
