How to put your iPhone or iPad into recovery mode?

If you can't update or restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, you can put your iOS or iPadOS device in recovery mode, then restore it using your computer.

It's not hard to enter recovery mode but a little complicated.

1. Connect your iPhone to a computer.

2. On a Windows PC or Mac running macOS Mojave 10.14 or earlier, launch iTunes. On a Mac running macOS Catalina 10.15 or newer, open Finder.

3. Confirm your iPhone/iPad model and perform corresponding steps.

  • iPad models with Face ID: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Press and hold the Top button until your device begins to restart. Continue holding the Top button until your device goes into recovery mode.
  • iPhone 8 or later: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. Then, press and hold the Side button until you see the recovery mode screen.
  • iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus, and iPod touch (7th generation): Press and hold the Top (or Side) and Volume Down buttons at the same time. Keep holding them until you see the recovery mode screen.
  • iPad with Home button, iPhone 6s or earlier, and iPod touch (6th generation) or earlier: Press and hold both the Home and the Top (or Side) buttons at the same time. Keep holding them until you see the recovery mode screen.
