Note:
1. During this period, iTunes will download software for your iOS device, this may take a very long time. If it lasts over 15 minutes, your device will exit recovery mode automatically, which needs you to repeat the last two steps.

2. Remember this will also remove all your iPhone/iPad/iPod data. If you want to get back the lost data but have no backup to restore, you can try Jihosoft iPhone Data Recovery, which is a good helper to recover deleted photos, videos, audios, contacts, messages, call history, WhatsApp, Viber, calendar, reminder, voice memo, voice mails, safari bookmarks and more from iOS devices.
