    Hi, can someone please help? So my iPhone X felt in water and I brought it to a shop to clean the phone from water. When I got it back it had the 'iTunes screen' on it. So I tried recovering the phone trough my macbook but it stopped when it was about 1/8 completed because of WiFi issues. I tried it a few more times but kept saying there was a problem… brought it back to a shop to try and fix it but they say the chances to save it are minimalistic because once there is a problem troughouth the proces, it's very hard to save it. Can someone please help me out here, I'm kinda freaking out because the iPhone is only 2 weeks old :(…

    Why do you point to Volume Down every time you say Volume Up and vice verse? Is it different where you are like the driving on the left side of the street?

    Dude, you literally saved me. I just did a screen replacement on my iPhone 8 and I wouldn’t fire back up and I was confident that it worked and I connected it correctly. The force restart did the trick! Thank you so much!

    Thank you. Update failed. Could not start a phone. DFU exit helped to trigger restore.

  • Reply Jas S July 29, 2019 at 10:49 am

    My phone was bricked and nothing worked. I finally decided to switch over to Samsung. I removed my sim card, inserted it in the new phone, and after about 4-5 minutes, my iPhone was working.

    To anyone reading this, remove your sim, and do a hard reset.

    Why does anyone use Apple anymore? My company bought these terrible phones for us to use; my coworker asked me to help her with her broken iPhone (white screen with Craple Logo), she has to plug it into a computer with itunes just to make it work??? this phone is a BRICK. I will recommend the company buys Androids

    I did the stupid update and now I have a black screen everytime that I try to Google something. Now, I am trying to hard reset my iphone and I cant get it to hard reset following these directions. This is beyond frustrating. Every time I do an update with a phone there is a problem.
