[Issue Solved] iPhone Stuck on Restore Mode

"When my iPhone suddenly gets stuck at recovery mode and becomes unresponsive afterwards, I try to restore with iTunes, but it doesn't work at all. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thank you!"

Have encountered the similar issue as we mentioned above that your iPhone X/10/8/7/6s/6 is being stuck on recovery mode and iTunes require you to restore it? If yes, here are three free ways to fix iPhone/iPad stuck on restore mode. Now let's take a look at it!

1. Hard Reset iPhone

Normally, a lot of iDevice issues can be resolved by a basic restart. In some cases, like when the iPhone gets stuck in recovery mode completely, then you need a more powerful option called a hard reset. A hard reset will restart the phone and it also refreshes the memory that apps run in and helps the iPhone start from scratch. Now just follow steps below to perform a hard reset:

Press and hold the Lock/Wake button on the right side of your iPhone.

At the same time, press and hold down the Volume Down button on the left side while keeping the Lock/Wake button pressed.

Keep holding both the buttons until the screen turns black and then switches back on to display the Apple Logo.

Wait for a couple of seconds until your iPhone boots up completely and displays the Lock screen.
