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

This way is simple as well as useful. Just doing a factory reset to your stuck iPhone will bring your device back to life. But you’ll risk losing all your iPhone data in this way. So, make sure you have had an iTunes backup or iCloud backup before.
To avoid your iTunes backup to be updated, we suggest you use another computer to make the factory reset. Then, connect your iPhone to the PC and launch iTunes. Click “Restore” button now. After restoring, all data will be erased and your iPhone will be “new” as the time it was bought. Turn to your own computer and connect your “new” phone to iTunes. Choose to restore from the iTunes backup so all data will be back on the device. Well done.
Note: If you are not sure the iTunes backup content, we recommend iPhone Data Recovery to help you preview and check the detailed information of iTunes backup data. Download and install the trial version on your computer and follow us now.

Step 1: Select iTunes Backup File and Start Scanning
Open the program and tap “Recover from iTunes Backup File” in the home window. You will see all the iTunes backup files you have on the computer displayed in list. Select the recent one and click on “Start Scan”. The program will extract your iTunes data then.

Step 2: Preview and Check your iTunes Backup Data
Wait for some time to get the scan results. You will get the content categories on the left. Unfold each icon and preview the details of your iPhone data. Thus, you can check whether or not you have all the wanted data backed up.
