My iPhone won't leave the restart screen


iMore Question

My iPhone 6 won't leave the white screen with the black apple on it. It stays stuck no matter what I try, I've tried restarting it and doing a hard restart but it just keeps returning to that screen. It also won't connect to my macbook air. It did when it originally stopped working but now it just buzzes three times whenever I try to plug it in and doesn't appear on my iTunes.

What's changed on the device since this started? Were you updating the OS, an app, or installing something new? Restoring from a backup? Need more info.
