What should I do to repair iPad won't restore? After getting the reasons of this error, I started to look for solutions. There are some ways listed below.
#1 Inspect iTunes whether it is the latest version
The message that iPad won't restore popped up on screen first, so I need to know the specific conditions of iTunes. If iTunes was not the newest version, it may bring problems when restoring iTunes. I directly checked for my iTunes on my Windows 10 as the following steps:
Launch iTunes > Press the Help button on the top of the window> Select Check for Updates.
By the way, if you use Mac to restore your iPad, follow the guide below:
Run iTunes > Select iTunes on the top left bar > Click Check for Updates.
After upgrading iTunes, I tried to restore my iPad again. But it failed. Therefore, I continued to find another method.
#2 Restart my computer
Because iTunes itself had nothing wrong, something unnormal may happen on my computer. I have only one PC, so I restarted it to fix some basic system issues on it. If you have another computer, switching it is better. Unluckily, it still didn't work. Both iTunes and PC were in a good function. I think that my iPad itself must have something wrong. Therefore, I searched some methods to fix iOS system issues.

Step 6. A picture display on iTunes, showing “iTunes has detected an iPad in Recovery Mode”.
