Way 1: Reboot Your iPhone

On the assumption that you are asking that my iPhone screen is blank, the first method proven proper is restarting your iPhone. Performing a reboot means a soft reset which will not erase any important data. To reboot the iPhone, the complete guide is shown in the next part.

Step 1: If you are using iPhone X or later models, hold down either Volume button and Power button (also the Top or Sleep/Wake button) simultaneously. But for other models, you only need to press and hold the Power button. When a power off slider occurs, release these buttons.

Step 2: Drag to slider to the right. And then the device will be off.

Step 3: To turn on the device again, press the Power button until the Apple logo appears.

Way 2: Close Specific App

It is possible that even if someone restarts the device, the iPhone screen is blank but on. If so, you'd better check if the iPhone blank screen problem arises when the device is running a specific app. After making a confirmation, attempt to force quit some specific apps.

Step 1: To close the app installed on your iPhone, the first thing you need to do is opening the app switcher. How to open it? For the iPhone X or later, swipe up from the bottom of the Home screen, while for other iPhones, double-press the Home button to launch the app switcher.

Step 2: Preview these app carders by waggling right or left. Last, choose and switch up one or all of the app carders shown.
