Sometimes, your iPhone may not be a white screen crash, but you accidentally turn on the screen magnification function. If so, you can try to reduce the screen to use the device normally.
To return the magnification to normal, hold three fingers together, and then double-click the screen to return the device to normal view. You can go to Settings > accessibility > zoom and click to turn off zooming.

For iPhone 7 and 7 plus: press the power button and the volume down button at the same time, and release the button when you see the apple logo on the screen.
For iPhone 8 and later: quickly press and release the volume up button, and then quickly press and release the volume down button. Finally, press and hold the side button until the apple logo appears on the screen.
Method 3: use home + volume increase + power button
If hard forced restart does not work, there is another button combination to help fix the iPhone white screen crash:
Press and hold the home button, the volume up button, and the power (sleep / wake) button at the same time. Press and hold until the screen closes.
Continue to press and hold these buttons until the apple logo appears.

Obviously, this method is only applicable to iPhone models with home button.
