Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

To put iPhone X into recovery mode do the following:

– connect the iPhone X to a computer running iTunes (make sure iTunes is the latest version by visiting the help menu in iTunes and selecting “Check for Updates”)
– Quick press the volume up key.
– Quick press the volume down key
– Hold the side button for long (the phone should go into recovery mode)
If that fails:
– Apple support has indicated that the above method sometimes fails, with the phone restarting after the final step
– If this occurs plug the phone into a charging brick and an outlet
– Quick press the volume up key
– Quick press the volume down key
– Hold the side button down (the phone will restart and display a message prompting you to connect to iTunes)
– Connect the phone to iTunes
From iTunes you are able to factory restore the phone

    More information is required. Is the iPhone updated with latest one? What reasons that you wanted to put it in Recovery mode? Have you taken backups of your iPhone?
