3 Methods to Unbrick a Bricked iPhone Device

This might sound new to some of us. Ofcourse yes! iPhones too get bricked, just like how Android phones do get bricked. Incase you don't know what bricking a phone means; A bricked phone means one thing: your phone won't turn on in any way. The phone gets stucked in boot loop.

Well, iPhones too get bricked, and fixing it is quite simple. I will be guiding you through the process of unbricking a bricked iPhone device in 3 easy methods.

The three methods are quite simple like i said,if you tried the first step and it couldn't fix the iPhone, then you should follow up with the next method. The three methods are; do a hard reset, restore the device via iTunes, or do a DFU restoration. Note that you have to try these methods accordingly as it's listed above i.e. hard reset first, DFU restoration last if the other methods don’t work. This would minimize the damage to your iPhone. Also, create backups of your data as much as possible, because you are very likely to lose your data while unbricking your device. Here are the steps to unbrick bricked iPhones.

HARD RESET:

Hold the Power button and the Home button till the iPhone reboots. You will see the Apple logo, at which point it will either boot to iOS or prompt you to plug into iTunes. if your device does that, it has entered Recovery Mode. Proceed to connect it to your PC and open iTunes.

RESTORE IPHONE VIA ITUNES:

When you connect your iPhone to your PC and launch iTunes, the next step is to click on Restore from the right-hand menu.
On the pop-up that follows, click on Confirm. Then wait till the restoration is complete.

DFU RESTORATION:

If you receive an error message while restoring your device via iTunes, then you need to do a DFU restore. This means you have to completely wipe the phone, and it resets the device to the original factory state. this will utterly delete every input you have made to the device. To do the DFU restore, follow these instructions:

Plug the iPhone to a PC and launch iTunes.
Press and hold the Power and Home buttons for 8 seconds. After that, release the power button, but hold on to the Home button until you see a message saying iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

Now you can release the Home button. Your device screen will go black. If it does not, restart the process.
