How to get an iPhone out of recovery mode

1. First make sure iTunes is upto date on your laptop, pc or Mac. Then connect a USB cable to your computer, but don't plug it into your iPad or iPhone just yet.

2. Turn off your iPhone or iPad by holding the sleep/wake button until the red bar appears: swipe to the right to shut down your device.

3. Connect the USB cable & continue to hold the home button.

4. You will see the Apple logo appear & this will change to the recovery graphic.

5. You can now release the home button. Your iPhone or iPad is now in recovery mode & iTunes should be displaying a message to say as much. You can now use iTunes to restore a previously saved backup to your device.

How to get out of recovery mode.

To get out of recovery mode, make sure your USB cable is connected to both the laptop running iTunes & your device. You may need to hold the home button while connecting your USB cable as above.

Now hold the home & sleep/wake buttons together until you see the Apple logo appear. Don't let it go until then-it can take several seconds: the recovery graphic will disappear & a black screen might be shown for a while, but keep holding the buttons down until the White Apple logo appears.

Leave the USB cable connected until your device boots up & shows the lock screen, it's now out of recovery mode.
