Methods To Restore iPhone 6 When It’s In Recovery Mode

By | January 23, 2015


Any one come across the following situation: your iPhone 6 was stuck in Recovery Mode and you just cannot end this process and make your iPhone 6 normal. Such problem happens frequently when you upgrade or downgrade your iOS system. What do you usually do when you encountered such problems?

When your iPhone 6 is stuck in Recovery Mode, the screen prompts you to connect it to iTunes. Something that might not be possible if you’re away from home or out of the office. Sometimes you can get the phone out of recovery mode by powering it down and then turning it back on again. If this doesn’t work, you’ll have to connect it to iTunes at your earliest opportunity. This restores the iPhone to its factory settings, but you can install your latest backup when you set it up again.

Method 1. Restore iPhone 6 by iTunes

The first thing you need to do is to make sure you have installed the latest version of iTunes. Because if iTunes is not in the latest version, the following process will not work.

  • Launch iTunes. Connect one end of the iPhone connection cable to the computer. Don’t connect the other end to the iPhone yet.
  • Press and hold the iPhone’s “Home” button and “Sleep/Wake” button at the same time. Release the buttons after about 15 seconds when the iPhone begins to power down.
  • Press and hold “Home” button while you connect the iPhone to the computer using the USB cable it came with. Wait a few seconds for iTunes to recognize the iPhone. A dialog box opens indicating that iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.
  • Click the Restore iPhone button. A dialog box opens, warning you that you are about to restore the iPhone to its factory settings and that your data will be erased. Click Restore.
  • Wait for iTunes to restore the iPhone. The process may take several minutes to complete. When it is done, the “Slide to Set Up” slider appears on the screen.
  • Drag the slider and follow the onscreen instructions to set up the iPhone. When prompted, use a backup you made previously on iCloud or on iTunes to restore data.

This is the whole process to use iTunes to fix the recovery mode problem.
