Apple is well known for its high-quality iPhone and iPad devices. However, even Apple cannot immune to system issues happening on these devices. You know that each iOS update comes with complaints about the system bugs and issues, such as iPhone stuck problems and iTunes not connecting errors.
Actually, it’s not rocket science to do system recovery for some people who know well about technology and system knowledge. And it may spend only a few minutes to get the iOS system problem solved.
However, it may be different for you. Therefore, a handy tool will be a nice choice.
Top 6 Best iOS System Recovery Software List – No Technique Required
There are so many desktop-based system repair tools for iPhone and iPad. So I just listed some top ones that I think could be better than those I didn’t list. Notice that all these tools are commercial applications that are not free for all their features.
Reiboot by Tenorshare is a utility specially designed for iPhone system repair. With this tool, you can easily fix more than 150+ system issues you may face on Apple devices (Apple TV is also included).
The advantage of Reiboot is that it’s free of charge to fix iPhone stuck in recovery mode (support.apple.com/iphone/restore error). And it’s fully compatible with the latest iOS 14 beta. That means, this tool also works if you get system issues while or after updating to the new betas.
2. iMyFone Fixppo
Fixppo is a professional iOS system recovery tool developed by iMyFone to help people get the iOS device system back to normal. And this product has been recommended by some famous tech sites like MacWorld and TechAdvisor.
Similar to Reiboot, Fixppo is also be used to help you get the device out of the system stuck or connect problems when you want to sync, update, restore, and backup your iPhone and iPad. Moreover, the free edition also contains the feature of 1-click enter & exit Recovery Mode.
3. iMobie AnyFix
AnyFix is a brand-new iOS system repair tool developed by iMobie. With this tool, you can easily fix most of the iPhone, iPad and iTunes issues, including iPhone disable, iPhone won’t turn on, iPad screen frozen, iTunes won’t connect, and so on.
Just like Reiboot, AnyFix is also working on the computer and requires you to connect your devices first to start the fix process. What makes AnyFix different is its unique interface and longest 60-day money-back guarantee.
4. Dr.Fone – System Repair (iOS)
Wondershare Dr.Fone is an all-in-one solution for iOS and Android users to recover data, transfer data, repair systems, etc. And its System Repair tool plays a role to fix system issues for its users. For iOS system recovery, this tool offers two modes – the Standard Mode and the Advanced Mode, which similar to the above software.
And the Standard Mode is used to fix 20 common issues like devices stuck on the back screen, Apple logo, or Recovery Mode. And if you cannot fix using the Standard Mode, the Advanced Mode may be helpful, but this mode has the disadvantage that all your data will be erased. (Just like a factory resetting)
5, TunesKit iOS System Recovery
Tuneskit iOS System Recovery is another program to reset your iOS system to normal. And it can fix 30+ iOS issues. If you connected your device to this tool, you’ll find it just like a copy of Dr.Fone System Repair because both of them have the same recovery modes, will also require you to download firmware.
6, RecBoot – Free iPhone System Recovery
RecBoot was developed by a small team named CoreDevTeam in 2013. This program originally works only on Windows computers. In 2016, another team developed an edition for Mac. And all these programs aim to exit/enter the Recovery Mode of the iPhone/iPad.
RecBoot vs ReiBoot/Fixppo
RecBoot is outdated after a long time of no version updates. And it has no advantages when compared to ReiBoot or Fixppo. But this freeware is still useful for some old iPhone users to get into recovery mode or fix devices stuck on the Apple logo issue.
Conclusion (My personal take)
The theory behind all these iOS system recovery programs is almost the same actually. Most of the programs will reset your device to factory resetting and then restore your device to the latest firmware with the backup data.
For my personal take, I like AnyFix more because of its unique and easy-to-use interface, although the test results showed that the Reiboot and Fixppo were more stable to download firmware than others.
