Restore iPhone Firmware Without iTunes | iphonexpertise - Official Site

For "firmware”Basically means the operating system that is the basis of a device, just like Windows or Mac OS is for computers. For iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPhone), Apple provides free firmware updates from time to time and there are several sites that contain the complete list of firmware that you can download on your PC and then update or restore on your device. This is certainly a delicate operation as restoration usually takes place with the deletion of all data.

In fact, if you restore the firmware via iTunes, the iOS device is first reset to factory conditions and then the operating system is updated. A complete guide on how to restore iPhone firmware with iTunes can be found in this article.

The goal of this article, however, is another and that is to show how restore iPhone firmware without iTunes.

Even if iTunes does not intervene in the operation that we are going to describe, it is still necessary that it is at least installed on the computer, as it contains the drivers necessary for communication between iPhone and computer (Windows or Mac). The software tool that you will have to download and install, and which will be the protagonist of the firmware recovery, is dr.fone for iOS.

Here are the download links:

Choose the repair mode: Standard (with data retention) or Advanced (with data wipe). Standard mode allows you to solve various problems such as iPhone stuck on black screen, stuck on Apple logo or in recovery mode. We recommend that you try this mode and if it fails to repair the device switch to Advanced mode (which however repairs the iPhone by erasing all data).

After choosing the repair mode, a window will open asking you to connect the device to the PC via USB. Once connected and detected, click on the button at the bottom right START to continue and set the model of your iPhone, the one you want to repair.
