What To Do With iPhone 12 Mini Stuck On Black Screen After iOS 14.4

In this troubleshooting guide, we will show you what you should do with your iPhone 12 Mini stuck on black screen and won’t respond after a recent update. Black screen issues are often due to firmware-related problems that can easily be fixed. Read on to learn more.  

When a premium device like the iPhone 12 gets stuck on a black screen and would no longer respond, it’s possible that the problem is with the hardware. However, if the issue occurred without apparent reason or cause, then it’s probably just a minor firmware problem you can easily fix. 

First solution: Perform the Forced Restart

Most of the time, if there are no obvious signs of physical or liquid damage, the black screen issue is just due to a firmware crash. Needless to say, it’s pretty minor and you’ll be able to fix it by doing the forced restart. It is a simulated battery removal that forces your iPhone to shut down or boot up whatever state it may be. Here’s how you do it: 

  1. Quickly press and release the Volume Up button and then the Volume Down button. 
  2. Immediately after that, press and hold the Power key for 10 seconds. This will trigger your device to boot up. 
  3. Once the logo is displayed on the screen, release the Power key and allow your iPhone to continue the boot process. 

The sign you’re looking for is the logo, because as long as it shows, it’s almost certain that your iPhone still works. 

So even if it doesn’t respond after the first attempt, try doing the same procedure a few more times before moving on to the next solution. 

Second solution: Charge your iPhone and do the Forced Restart

Another possibility why an iPhone gets stuck on a black screen is when the battery gets drained completely. Most of the time, the device will respond as soon as you connect it to the charger. However, there is a chance the firmware will crash if you allow it to run out of juice. So to address that, here’s what you should do: 

  1. Make sure the power adapter is plugged in to a working outlet. 
  2. Connect your iPhone to it using the original lightning cable. 
  3. Regardless of whether the charging sign shows or not, leave it connected to the charger for at least 10 minutes. 
  4. After that, quickly press and release the Volume Up button and then the Volume Down button.
  5. And then press and hold the Power key for 10 seconds or more. 

If you can make the logo show on the screen, then the problem is fixed. However, if your iPhone 12 Mini is still stuck on the black screen even after these solutions, then it’s time to set up an appointment at the Genius Bar and have it checked. 

And that’s what you need to do with your iPhone 12 Mini stuck on black screen. We hope that this troubleshooting has been able to help you.
