Fix Recovery

A lot of people end up with their iPhone stuck in the Recovery Mode and then desperately search ways to fix the problem. Even though its a small and common problem, it is still very difficult to have a non-functional device, especially when it’s your primary smartphone. Your iPhone can go into the recovery mode and get stuck there in case you yourself activated the recovery mode to fix another problem. It is also possible that while trying to jailbreak your iOS device, something went wrong and the recovery mode kicked in. You may also get stuck in recovery mode while updating to a newer iOS version. Thankfully, the issue is a small one and can be resolved easily.
