Many iPhone users have started expressing their frustration about an issue with their iPhones. They are experiencing the white screen of death on their iPhones. The white screen of death means no matter what you do or how many times you tap on your iPhone screen, it turns white all of a sudden and remains like that.
It does not even show any icons or background images set on the screen but a plain white screen. This is making users quite disappointed and not sure how to resolve this issue. This problem could be mainly caused due to the internal parts damage done by the user because of negligence, minor software glitches, etc.
However, don’t worry if you have the white screen of death issue on your iPhone too. We have listed out and explained a few fixes in detail in the article below.
- When the battery percentage is very less to start the iPhone and running, it might get stuck at the white screen at the beginning and remains like that. Well, in this case, you need to connect your iPhone to the charger and place it for charging till it reaches a sufficient level to start your iPhone.
- If any user has recently dropped their iPhone on a hard surface/rough ground or immersed in a water pool by mistake for a quite long time (though it is water resistant, a long time can cause damage), the internal parts of the iPhone may have been broken or spoilt which lead to this problem. If this is the case, go to your nearest Apple Store and get it repaired.
