The iPhone recovery mode is ideal for performing instant restores. During this process what basically happens is that the firmware is updated. By doing this, it is possible to solve complex problems that occur both on the phones, as well as on the rest of the Apple family of products.
What is iPhone recovery mode?
When we talk about the recovery process, we usually think of the iTunes logo with the USB cable but now it seems that in iOS 13 these changes: We downloaded and installed the first beta version of iOS 13 and discovered that this latest version, when the iPhone enters recovery mode, looks like this: computer icon and USB cable.
However, the meaning remains the same. It means the same message: You must connect to a computer/iTunes.
When do we need to use iPhone recovery mode?

- When you decide to jailbreak the phone. In this way, you avoid the restrictions that Apple imposes on users with this type of cell phone.
