    Hey, I've had this iPhone for a while now, and it's starting to glitch out on me.

    I was browsing youtube, and when I went to go check my discord app my screen froze, went black, then stopped responding. After this happened, I did an emergency restart (i think that's what it's called?) and now my phone is jacked up. It's stuck on the lockscreen with the apple logo being destroyed with green lines everywhere.

    Hope you have a backup of your phone (whether iCloud or local). It seems that either phone gets hot, flash storage is failing, or battery is failing. I can only guess.

    Judging from all the damage on the phone, guessing it's fried. And since stuck on the boot screen, it won't be a simple screen repair.

    Let a shop like iPad Rehab take a look at your phone. Often, it's not as bad as it might seem.

    It’s called a Hard Reset. :p
    (I’m assuming you’re talking about where you held the home & power buttons at the same time)

    Need to change title to “Extremely abused iPhone hardly works any more”.

    Probably not for long. Back up the phone now and replace it as soon as you can. You dodged a bullet this time, but you may not be so lucky next time.
