Sometimes, an iOS device can malfunction due to software or system issues. These problems can manifest as a device that is stuck on the Apple logo, on the black/white screen, or a device that is stuck on a reboot loop. One of the best ways to fix these system issues is to use an iOS system recovery tool and one of the most popular tools is Tenorshare ReiBoot.
But what do you do when ReiBoot will not fix these problems? This article addresses these problems, offering solutions and alternatives that you can use in place of ReiBoot.

Sometimes, ReiBoot can fail to work as expected. Perhaps it fails to recognize the device or it will not fix the issue. If you are having trouble using ReiBoot, the following are some of the solutions to try:

Force Restart iPhone
When your device is stuck on the Apple Logo, blank or on a boot loop, a force restart is one of the best options to resolve iOS issues. This is because a force restart is a great way to close any apps and remove any data corruptions that may be affecting the device.

For Newer iPhone Models:
Step 1: Press and quickly release the Volume Up button.
Step 2: Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.

Once the screen is successfully in DFU mode, iTunes will notify you that a device in recovery mode has been detected. Click “Restore” and wait for iTunes to fix the device. Once the restore process is complete, the device should restart and you can choose if you would like to set it up as new or restore it from a previous iTunes backup.
