  1. Disconnect your device from the computer. The process won’t work if you start with the phone connected to the computer. Leave the cable connected to the computer, as you will be reconnecting the phone later in the process.
  2. Power down your device. Turn off your device by holding down the Power button. When the power slider appears, slide it to the right. Wait for your device to comepletely shut down before continuing.
  3. Press and hold the Home button. With the Home button held connect the device to your computer with the USB cable. When reconnected, your device should turn on. If the low battery screen appears, charge your device for a few minutes and try the process again.
  4. Continue holding the Home button. After a few moments, you will see the “Connect to iTunes” screen on your device. This screen is a picture of an arrow pointing from a USB cable to the iTunes logo. When you see the screen you can release the Home button.
