3. Put iPhone into DFU Mode

If recovery mode doesn’t work, then it is likely that there is significant damage to the system. We therefore recommend that you use DFU (iPhone Firmware Update) mode. DFU mode is an ideal solution since it stops your iPhone halfway through the process, allowing you to restore the iPhone or start fresh. Putting your iPhone in DFU mode is much like recovery mode, but it is more precise and often more effective.
