Three Simple Steps to Fix Booting Troubles in iOS

     Often it is not only about the device or the OS that you are running it rather it is more about how well you maintain it. Even if you are using Apple devices like an iPhone or an iPad, you still need to maintain them or else they start giving trouble. The most common trouble that you might encounter is trouble in booting or the iDevice is not booting up at all. Now to deal with the trouble there are three simple ways about which we will discover through this article. Let us find out three simple steps to fix booting trouble in iOS.

System requirements

Before you begin the process of restoring or reset, you require a desktop system that can be Mac or any other system. Next, you require iTunes on the system that will help in restoration process.

Factory Reset

The initial step towards fixing booting troubles is to perform a Factory reset. This process is what brings back the original and new like condition while only retaining your default data. Remember, this directly means that you will lose your local data, programs and apps that you have downloaded previously. After you are done with the process you will need to begin with scratch with startup process. However, the data that is synced to your iCloud or your other drive would act as a backup and help restore after the reset is done. This will help you get back your apps that you downloaded. One more thing to remember is that this process comes handy when you are willing to give it away to someone, as there would be no personal data left.

Steps involved:

On your Home Screen go to Settings app-> Settings-> General Category-> locate Reset and tap it.
On tapping ‘Reset’ choose the option of ‘Erase All Content and Settings’
Enter PIN to initiate the process, remember if you are using latest iPad or iPhone then the encryption key is removed. This means that now any data on the device is easily accessible along with the memory sectors that can be used.

Using iTunes

First you need to realize that the factory reset removes your personal data and the apps installed. The iOS will not be installed back. This means that if you have had troubles with OS crash or system failure then these will still remain. This means that your device is now corrupt and requires fixing. Now you need to hook up your device with your desktop system, a PC or Mac that has iTunes installed on it. The iTunes gives you the advantage of re-installing the OS that is made available by Apple. You will be able to obtain the fresh copy of the iOS that will replace the old OS and you will be able to make a fresh start. This is what is called a restore.

Steps involved:

On your desktop system launch iTunes, here you must remember to have the latest version of the application installed
Hook up your iPad , iPhone or your iDevice to the system using USB
Use the PIN to unlock your device
Tap Trust to establish connectivity
In iTunes select the device displayed
Tap the Restore button to initiate the process of restoring your device. Within a few minutes your old iOS will be wiped off and replaced with a clean and a new one.

Recovery Mode

After having tried the above-mentioned process if your device still refuses to boot up then you need to try out the recovery mode. All you need to ensure is that your iTunes is open on your desktop system.

Steps involved:

Power off your device which you want to restore. To do this press and hold the Power button + Slider. ,. If this does not work then try press and hold Power+Home buttons till your device turns off.
Connect your iDevice or your iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch to your system using USB
A screen appears displaying the message ‘connect to iTunes,’ a connecter will be pointed to the icon of iTunes
You will have to try again if the device is not displaying the message but first re-boot by holding the Home button for a few seconds till you see the screen appear
Now you will see a message that will alert you about Recovery Mode
Click Restore button and the iTunes will initiate the process of restoring the OS of your device.

If after performing the above procedures you are still not able to fix the booting trouble then there is a real trouble with either your device or the OS, which may be massively corrupted. It is advisable to get it fixed from a professional tech expert who will help you through.
