Push the “Sleep/Wake” button again to turn the i Phone back on.If the i Phone is not in Recovery Mode, the issue is resolved.I had a friend reach out to me on Facebook in a panic after he somehow had gotten his i Phone 4 into a tizzy. I love hearing about ways to fix issues – especially with an i Phone.His i Phone had gone into a strange mode and his question was simple, my i Phone stuck in recovery mode, what do I do? sorry to buy you but I know you love your i Phone and might be able to help me. I thought I’ve seen it all when it comes to the i Phone. I’ve had my phone black out, shut off, brighten and darken, crack, make noises, not make noise at all and announce cryptic messages on the push notifications – but I’ve never had it go into recovery mode, ironically. Essentially, the device enters a mode called “Recovery Mode”.I was doing an update to my i Phone 4 but now its on recovery mode and it doesn’t work, it say to restore phone for it to work but says that I will lose all my data! You’ll see a graphic on the screen that is the USB connector icon and the i Tunes icon.
We are sure that many people are experiencing this issue with updating i OS 9.3 this week.Updating some i OS devices (i Phone 5s and earlier and i Pad Air and earlier) to i OS 9.3 can require entering the Apple ID and password used to set up the device in order to complete the software update.In some cases, if customers do not recall their password, their device will remain in an inactivated state until they can recover or reset their password.To narrow down the issue, you can try different equipment: If you still see the error message, check for hardware issues by following the next section.Related errors: 1, 3, 11, 12, 13, 14, 16, 20, 21, 23, 26, 27, 28, 29, 34, 35, 36, 37, 40, 1002, 1004, 1011, 1012, 1014, 1667, or 1669.
