Try The Official Solution 

If you have just tried to update your iPhone to iOS 15 and your iPhone is stuck on the Apple logo, you can also try using the official method to fix the problem. Here’s how to do that. 

  • Put your iPhone into recovery mode. The steps to do this are different, according to the iPhone you are using. 
    • For an iPhone 8 or later, you need to quickly press and then let go of the volume up button. Repeat the steps for the volume down button. Now, keep the power button pressed until the recovery screen shows up. 
    • For iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, keep pressing both the volume down button and the sleep/wake button (power button). 
    • For iPhone 6s and earlier, you will have to press and hold the sleep button and the home button at the same time. Keep the home button pressed until the recovery screen shows up.

Other Ways to Fix the Problem

Hard Reset Your iPhone 

If your iOS 15 update is frozen on the Apple logo, you can try to hard reset your iPhone to fix the problem as well. This might not work, but it’s worth a shot, especially because it doesn’t cause any data loss. 

iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone SE 2020 and later iPhones: 

  • Press and let go of the volume up button, press and let go of the volume down button. Now, press and hold the side button. Release the button when you see the Apple logo; do keep in mind that the Apple logo will take some time to show up, so just be patient and keep the side button pressed down until the logo shows up. 

iPhone 7 and 7 Plus:

  • You will have to press and hold the sleep button and the volume down toggle simultaneously. When you see the Apple logo, you can release both the buttons. 

iPhone 6s or earlier:

  • Keep the home button on your iPhone and the sleep button pressed down until you see the Apple logo, and then release both buttons. 

DFU Restore 

Another method that you can try to fix an iPhone which is stuck on Apple logo after iOS 15 update is to perform a DFU restore on the device. This can help if the problem is happening due to a firmware issue. 

  • First put your iPhone into DFU restore mode. The steps to put an iPhone into DFU mode are mentioned below. 
  • iPhone 8 and later (including iPhone 13 series) 
    • Use the lightning cable to connect your iPhone to your PC/Mac. 
    • Quick-press the Volume Up button 
    • Quick-press the Volume Down button 
    • Hold down the Side button. Once the screen goes black, keep the side button pressed and hold the volume down button as well. 
    • After 5 seconds, let go of the Side button. However, continue holding the Volume Down button. 
  • iPhone 7 and 7 Plus 
    • Use the lightning cable to connect your iPhone to your PC/Mac. 
    • Press and hold the Side Button and the Home Button simultaneously. 
    • Release the Side button after 8 seconds, but continue holding down the Volume Down button. 
  • iPhone 6s and earlier 
    • Use the lightning cable to connect your iPhone to your PC/Mac.
    • Press both the home and lock buttons simultaneously, and keep them pressed. 
    • After 8 seconds, release the Lock button. However, continue keeping Home button pressed. 
  • Once your iPhone is in DFU mode, iTunes will automatically detect it and inform you that it’s connected in recovery mode. You can then use iTunes to fix your iPhone. 

Contact Apple Support 

Lastly, if none of the methods mentioned above have worked for you, there is a chance that there’s a hardware level problem or something more serious that can’t be fixed at home. You should contact the Apple Support team and they will be able to schedule a repair session for your iPhone.
