these troubles happened in the lastest iOS 10.3 update again.

This post is going to tell you the reasons that cause the iPhone fails to turn on after an update, and how to fix it if your iPhone won’t turn on. Now let’s get started.

1. Common Types of iPhone Failure Diagnosis and Solutions

1. Drained Battery

When your iPhone is completely run out of battery, it won’t respond to any touch or any attempt to turn on the phone.

Maybe your phone has not enough battery for the whole upgrade process. So the solution is just simply plug it into a power source and leave it for an hour. Your device should be back to life. If not, move on to next trick.

2. iOS Crashed

If your iPhone has plenty of battery, you can consider the reason could be iOS crashed.

So the next step to try to fix the problem is to do a hard reset. For iPhone 6s and earlier, press and hold the Power and Home buttons together for at least 10 seconds until you see the Apple logo. For iPhone 7/7Plus, press and hold Power and Volume Down buttons for at least 10 seconds until you see the Apple logo.

3. Corrupted Firmware

If a hard reset doesn’t work, the firmware may has been corrupted. In this case, you need to restore your iPhone.

4. Hardware Problem

If you have tried all above methods, but your phone still can’t turn on, there must be something wrong with the hardware. You should take the phone to Apple Store and have a professional test.
