Sometimes, when you try to upgrade the iOS system, restore the iPhone, or restore the backup files to the iPhone or iPad, you may see a black screen with the iTunes symbol or computer icon, or even the Apple logo. Obviously, the iPhone is stuck in the recovery mode loop. If you also come across this issue, you can read this article to learn how to effectively fix iPhone stuck in recovery mode. Before fixing the iPhone problem, please understand some information about iPhone recovery mode.

Part 1. What is iPhone Recovery Mode?

Recovery mode is a special state. When there is a problem with the operating system, the iPhone enters the recovery mode. Putting the device in recovery mode can make the iPhone run and connect to iTunes, but it cannot fully start iOS. This allows you to update the operating system to a new working version or restore a working backup to the device. In recovery mode, you cannot use your iPhone at all.

Sometimes, when your iPhone is locked or disabled, putting the iPhone into recovery mode, which is commonly referred to as the factory mode, allows you to re-access the device, but the data and settings in the iPhone will be completely erased after restarting .

Part 2. Why iPhone Stuck in Recovery Mode?

There are two main reasons for iPhone stuck in recovery mode: hardware damage or software problems.
