What is iTunes Recovery Mode?

iTunes recovery mode is a troubleshooting for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Sometimes your iOS device goes wrong like freezing, getting stuck, or iTunes doesn’t recognize your device, iTunes restore failed, nothing else is working, iTunes recovery mode might be the first troubleshooting step to fix the problem and save your device.

When your device displays the image you see below, of the iTunes logo and a USB cable telling you to attach the device to iTunes, it is in iTunes recovery mode.

Note: iTunes recovery mode is different from DFU mode, which bypasses the bootloader which allows for things like downgrading firmware.

The traditional way to enter iTunes recovery mode is not difficult to operate, you need to Turn off your device -> Hold down the Home button and than plug it into your computer-> Keep holding down the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.

However, I have seen a lot of users complained that they can’t enter iTunes recovery mode with the steps above. Here we recommend a free program – Tenorshare ReiBoot for you. With it, you can 1 click to enter and exit iTunes recovery mode to solve iOS device freezing issue during/after iOS update, Apple logo stuck, DFU stuck, black/blue screen, etc.

How to Get Out of iTunes Recovery Mode on iPhone, iPad or iPod without Restoring?

After entering recovery mode you can either connect to iTunes and make restore to your device but in this way all the data and settings on the iPhone will be erased, or use Tenorshare ReiBoot to exit iTunes recovery mode without restoring (no data loss).

Get free Tenorshare ReiBoot now and never worry about how to enter or exit iTunes recovery mode any more. Note that iTunes recovery mode can troubleshoot many iOS issues but sometimes you also need to use another useful mode – DFU Mode when you need to downgrade iOS firmware, encounter iTunes errors like “Can't Restore, iTunes error 1600”, etc.
