iPhone X: How To Enter DFU Mode and Restore!

The first step when we’re going to put an iPhone into DFU mode is we have to plug it into a computer. You can’t do it if it’s not plugged in. So I’ll connect with the lightning cable to the iphone. you are plugged into iTunes. Now a DFU restore can work whether your iPhone is on or it’s not on at all, so your iPhone can actually appear to be completely dead and you can still put it into DFU mode. What we’re gonna have to do is a few different steps.

To enter DFU Mode on iPhone X:

1. Press and release the volume up button.

2. Press and release the volume down button.

3. Press and hold the side button until the screen goes black.

4. When the screen goes black, continue holding the side button and begin holding down the volume down button. Hold both buttons for about 5 seconds.

5. After 5 seconds, release the side button, but keep holding the volume down button until your iPhone X appears in iTunes.

Congratulations, you’ve entered DFU Mode on iPhone X!

The first thing we’re going to do is we’re
gonna quickly press and hold the volume up button, volume down button, and then the side button. The screen will go black. If your iPhone is already off, the Apple logo is going to appear. Wait for it to appear that disappear again,
and that’s that’s when the screen goes black. you are gonna wait for that to happen.  Then as soon as the screen goes black we’re
going to continue holding the side button and press down the volume down button. So now we’re holding two buttons together
at once for how long? About five seconds. Five seconds. then after five seconds, we’re gonna let go of the side button, and just keep holding that volume down button.

Don’t give up until it appears an iTunes.  iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.If your iPhone is in DFU mode, the screen will be black. If your screen is not black, your iPhone is not in DFU mode.

let’s say that they made a mistake and this isn’t happening, what should we do? Switch to Android! Okay. No. If you make a mistake, just try again. Try again. If it doesn’t work at first. try again. It doesn’t have to be on. It can be off. Just try. If make a mistake, just go through the steps again and eventually you’ll it right.

iPhone recovery mode. Screen is black. DFU mode: Click “Restore iPhone”. Are you sure you want to restore this iPhone? Probably you’re sold on this by this point. you need now click restore and update.  it will download a fresh copy of
the iPhone software to your computer, which could take up some time, depending on probably internet it’ll go through the whole process of restoring your iPhone, and you will have a fresh copy of the software on your iPhone and hopefully you’ve fixed it!
