iPhone Stuck in Recovery Mode

Posted on Feb 3, 2014 by Elvira Sharma
“Yesterday I tried to update my iPhone 5s to iOS 8. However, after downloading the update file, my iPhone stuck in recovery mode only with the plug to iTunes icon on the screen. I’m so regret that I have’n done any backup before, and there are so much important files on my phone. What can I do if I want to restore my phone? Will all my iPhone data be lost forever?” It is really frustrating for anybody to encounter such an embarrassing issue, for which you can do nothing but learn a lesson indeed that doing backup timely is very important. Whatever, it does’t matter. iPhone Data Recovery is an easy-use tool that enables you to recover your iDevice.

As a data-recovery software, iPhone Data Recovery can not only recover your iPhone data, but also help you get out of the recovery mode of your iPhone when it stuck in recovery mode. I will show you two different solutions to teach you how to get your iPhone out of recovery mode.

You can download the free trial version on your computer first.

Solution 1: Factory Reset your iPhone to Get out of Recovery Mode

This is the basic way that you just need to factory reset your iPhone to recover your device. All your data will be erased. If you have an iTunes backup or iCloud backup before, you can recover your data back. In order to prevent your iTunes backup from being updated, you need to use another computer to make the factory reset. Then connect your device to the PC and run iTunes. Click “Restore” button and all data will be erased. After restoring, connect your device to iTunes on your own computer. Choose the right backup file to retrieve your data back.
Note: If you need to preview the content of the iTunes backup, I recommend iPhone Data Recovery to you as it can help you check the details of the data.

Step 1: Select and scan iTunes backup file

Firstly, launch the program and switch the recovery mode to “Recover from iTunes Backup File”. Then you will see all the iTunes backup files displayed in list as the window shown below. Select the right file and click “Start Scan”. Then the program will begin to extract your iTunes data.
