How to Exit iPhone Recovery Mode without Losing Data
Many users will have their iPhone stuck in Recovery Mode when updating, restoring or jailbreaking the device. Generally speaking, this should not be a difficult problem to resolve. In this article, you will find 3 free ways to get iPhone out of Recovery Mode.
- Way 1: Manfully Get iPhone out of Recovery Mode without Restore
- Way 2: 1 Click to Exit Recovery Mode Free without Losing Data
- Way 3: Get out of Recovery Mode using iTunes
If your device was functioning well before, and you put it into Recovery Mode just to clean up caches or fix a frozen screen, you can still use buttons to quit Recovery Mode for iPhone XS/XS Max/XR/X/8/7/6/5 easily. To do this:
- 1．Disconnect with iTunes and a USB cable.
- 2．On iPhone 8 (Plus)/7 (Plus)/6/6s/5 and earlier, hold down Power Button to turn off your device.
On iPhone XS/XS Max/XR/X, press and hold the side button with either volume button.
- 3．Press the On/Off Button again till the Apple logo appears, and you should start up your iPhone successfully.
If the process doesn't work the first time, try it 1-2 times again or go to way 2 directly.
However, there are some users with their iPhone power button broken and cannot manually exit Recovery Mode using buttons. Therefore, I would like to introduce you a freeware called Tenorshare ReiBoot, which is capable of putting iPhone XS/XS Max/XR/X/8/7/6/6s/5 into and out of Recovery Mode without data loss or using any buttons.
Here is what you need to do:
- 1．Download and install Tenorshare ReiBoot on Mac/Windows PC.
- 2．Connect your iOS device with Tenorshare ReiBoot.
- 3．Click Exit Recovery Mode on the screen.
There you go to bypass Recovery Mode without iTunes restore. Quick and easy.
The last choice is iTunes. If you have made an up-to-date backup before iPhone stuck in Recovery Mode, you may give this method a try. Note that all the exiting data will be erased after iTunes restore.
To get past Recovery Mode on iPhone, do the following:
- 1．Connect your frozen iPhone with iTunes.
- 2．iTunes will automatically detect your device in Recovery Mode and pop up a message saying whether to Restore or Update.
- 3．Choose one at your will. If there is no available update, you can only choose to restore.
That's all about how to exit Recovery Mode without restore and using physical buttons. Among the three, I strongly recommend you take Tenorshare ReiBoot into preferable consideration.
Again, these methods apply to all iOS devices including your iPhone XS/XS Max/XR/X/10/iPhone 8 (Plus), iPad and iPod Touch.
