Q:"I plugged my iPhone into my computer and put it in recovery mode to update it to the latest iOS. Once it was done, the iPhone brought me to a screen saying 'press home to recover'. I tried this but halfway through the recovery process the iPhone restarted and took me back to this 'press home to recover' screen. I have tried this a few times but the same result keeps happening. Please help." - Cronus from Apple Discussion
