Restore iPhone from Recovery Mode After iOS Update Failure
When you try to update your iPhone (iPad, or iPod touch) to the latest iOS, you might experience some problems. Your device may get stuck at the Apple logo, or in a continuous restart loop. Even if you seem to have successfully updated to the latest installation, your iTunes may no longer see the device when you connect it. There are various reasons for these errors. It could be caused by the low battery during the installation, a network failure, or a buggy beta iOS version. Many of the simpler problems can be resolved by restarting it, but others may require putting the iPhone into recovery mode. Restoring your iPhone using recovery mode removes all your data on the iOS device. Let’s take a look at how to fix your iPhone in recovery mode and how to restore your personal data after it.
How to Put an iPhone In Recovery Mode
Step 1. Connect your iPhone to iTunes. If you don’t have a computer, you’ll need to borrow one from your friend or go to the Apple Retail Store. Make sure you have the latest iTunes installed on the computer.
Step 2. Perform a force restart on the phone. For iPhone 6s and earlier, do this by holding down the sleep/wake button and the Home button at the same time. Don’t release the buttons when you see the Apple logo. Keep holding both buttons until you see the recovery mode screen. For iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Once the Connect to iTunes screen appears, your phone is in recovery mode.
Step 3. A window pops up in iTunes offering to let you Update or Restore the phone. Click Update. This tries to resolve the problem without erasing your data. If Update fails, put your iPhone into recovery mode again and this time click Restore. If you need to restore your iPhone, you can choose to restore it to its factory state or from a recent backup of your data.
Step 4. If you successfully restored your iPhone, you can exit the recovery mode by restarting your iPhone.
