Now that you've probably gone through the process of booting in recovery mode to fix your iPhone, you might wonder how booting in it allows you to fix a lot of issues you encounter with your phone. The answer is pretty simple. The iPhone's recovery mode grants you access to restore and upgrade your phone's software that booting in normal mode cannot really do. Having your phone boot in recovery mode, though only allows you to upgrade and recover, gives you a higher level of accessing your phone in such ways that you wouldn't normally do. It allows you to do such things so you can fix more software errors in your phone. Take note that since you are granted a different level of access, you must be careful or you'll make things worse with your iPhone.
Booting an iPhone in recovery mode is considered a risky step by many iPhone fans and should be done carefully if it really needs to be done. One reason for such a warning is that putting your iPhone in recovery mode and restoring it afterward will have all your phone's data wiped out. Upon restoration, only the software that was originally in your phone after purchase will be present. You'll have to use an iTunes or iCloud backup file if you want to restore the data back to your phone. Though doing it may sound a bit scary, fear not as being careful while working to fix your phone in recovery mode will guarantee successful restoration of your phone. Simply read carefully, follow the steps, and do things exactly as stated and you should have your phone up and running in no time.
Step 1. Get the latest iTunes and connect your iPhone
Before proceeding, get the latest version of iTunes if you haven't yet. Having the latest version will give less room for errors. Get a USB cable that can connect your iPhone to your PC. Faulty cables may cause the restoration in recovery mode to fail, so make sure that the cable you're using is working perfectly fine, or better yet, use the USB cable that came with your iPhone's original packaging to guarantee full functionality. Connect the USB cable to your PC while leaving your iPhone disconnected.
Step 2. Power off your iPhone.
Ensure that your iPhone is turned off. If it isn't press the power button and hold it for a few seconds. Release when you see the red slider appear on your screen. Slide it and wait for your phone to switch off. If your phone fails to turn off, you may try holding the power and home buttons at the same time. Only release when your phone is already turned off.
Step 3. Import MKV video to the software
Once your phone is turned off, hold its home button while connecting the USB cable to it. Be careful not to release the home button while connecting your phone to the PC or you might need to do it again. Your phone should turn on once connected. Do not release your iPhone's home button unless the "Connect to iTunes screen" appears.
If instead of the "Connect to iTunes screen" you see a battery logo, this means that your phone's battery level is low. Charge it for about ten minutes before trying to boot into recovery mode again. After charging, start the whole process again by beginning at the very first step in this tutorial.
Step 4. Restore your iPhone from recovery mode
To notify you that your phone has booted in recovery mode and is already connected to your PC, iTunes will automatically launch and you will see a pop-up message. The message should inform you that you need to restore your iPhone before further use, specifically with iTunes.
Upon getting the pop-up message, just click OK and your iPhone is now ready for restoration. Click Restore afterward to restore your phone to factory settings. At this point, all that your phone is missing is its data. To restore data to your iPhone, you have two options provided by Apple. You may opt to use iTunes if you make backups using it or iCloud if your backups are stored in Apple's cloud system. Note that neither of these two apps will help you restore your phone if you haven't created backups using any of them.
Take note that in some cases, iTunes will not launch automatically. Just in case it doesn't, launch it yourself and it shall display a similar pop-up message.
While your iPhone is still connected to your PC, click on "File" on the menu bar, then on "Devices", followed by "Restore from Backup".
iTunes will confirm and ask you which backup you want to use. It will list all iOS devices connected to your computer. Select your iPhone from the list and if you're ready to restore data to your phone, click on "Restore" to proceed. From this point, all you have to do is wait for iTunes to restore the data to your phone.
The restoration process for this method will be done wirelessly so it would be wise to ensure first that your phone's network and internet connection is strong and reliable before proceeding with any of the following steps.
Upon restoration to factory settings, you shall see a slider in your iPhone. Slide it to get to the iOS Setup Assistant. Proceed through the setup assistant by choosing a language and setting configurations for your phone.
Once you've finished that stage, the setup assistant will ask you how you would want to set up your iPhone. You will see three different options. In this case, select "Restore from iCloud Backup".
The iOS Setup Assistant will then ask you which backup to use. You'll see a list of all the backups you've created using iCloud. If you've made multiple backups, all of these backups, along with their date and time of creation, will be displayed. Choose the backup you want to use for restoration by tapping on it.
Wait until your phone's data is restored. When you're done restoring, your phone will most likely function the way it was before it ran into a problem.
