How to Enter Recovery Mode with Broken Home Button iPhone

iPhone is known as the first smartphone that has minimalist hardware button. Right from the start, there were 4 hardware buttons, and that didn’t change until now.


Every refreshment, especially in the terms of design is always a good idea. When we use our devices, we develop certain habits, and new design will make us change such habits, which is the case with minimalist button as well. This not only influence the way we use the iPhone, minimalist button has the influence on troubleshooting as well. It is often used for Recovery Mode.

To put your device into Recovery Mode, follow these steps:

Turn off your iPhone, then hold down the home button and plug it into your computer. Keep holding the home button until you see this pic for iOS 7 or later.


Of course this thing cannot be done if home button of iPhone / iPad is not working.
