"My iPad 4 appears stuck on the black screen with the Apple logo after upgrading to iOS 11. Is it dead? What can I do to fix it?" a user stated on one of the Apple Support Communities.

iPad got stuck on Apple logo screen probably caused by jailbreak, updating your iOS version or restoring from backup. Your devices will spontaneously reboot and never boot past the white Apple logo on black background which makes you cannot move forward.
