iPhone Recovery Mode and DFU Mode

iPhone Recovery Mode VS DFU Mode

DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode is a means to getting your iPhone to interface with iTunes without iTunes automatically loading the latest version of iOS onto it (it skips the iBoot bootloader, for jailbreak aficionados).

However, iPhone recovery mode is where iTunes restores your iPhone to its original factory settings but with the latest iOS and firmware.

For more information on DFU mode you can visit How to Enter DFU Mode for iPhone, iPad and iPod.

Restore iPhone Files after iPhone Recovery Mode

iPhone recovery mode may not solve all your problems sometimes, and the issue is more serious than we estimated. As the recovery mode has deleted all our iPhone data, we need to find another way out. The best way to enable us to restore from iPhone backup is using iTunes Data Recovery. The easy-to-use software allows us to recover photos, contacts, SMS, notes and more from iPhone backup.
