When iPhone is opened, it will display the Apple logo, but it will not launch into the user interface normally. Instead, it will close and display the Apple logo again. This is the so-called 'iPhone Keep Turning On and Off'. The reasons for this problem may be diverse. For example:

1. iOS update failed

The most common reason why iphones keep rebooting is a failed iOS update. If you recently tried to update your iPhone to the new iOS 17, but the update process stopped or failed, it could cause the iPhone to repeatedly shut down and restart.

2. Attacks from malware

If you've ever tried to jailbreak your iPhone, the device is vulnerable to external security threats such as malware, viruses, etc., because a jailbroken iPhone can install applications from other sources. Or when you install an app from an untrusted source on your iPhone, it may cause the iPhone to keep turning on and off. This almost never happens on an unjailbroken iPhone.

3. Hardware issues

Although hardware issues are not the main cause of iPhone continuous restarts, sometimes malfunctioning phone components can also cause the phone to turn on and off repeatedly. For example, when the power button on your iPhone malfunctions, it may cause problems with the iPhone constantly turning on and off.

4. Driver failure

A driver malfunction may also cause the iPhone to constantly restart.

2. Uninstall applications from untrusted sources

If you have apps from untrusted sources on your iPhone, clear those that you don't use or need, especially those from untrusted sources.
