    You just saved my iPad… I was stuck in recovery mode…
    I connected it to iTunes and its back to life again…

    Mine is even worse: I pressed the Home + Power button, and there is no Power-Off slider showing up.

    If I keep pressing the Home + Power button, it will just looping through the “Black Screen” -> “Recovery Screen” -> “Black Screen” -> “Recovery Screen”

    So I pressed the Power button alone, and it did turn off the screen.

    Now I pressed the Home button while connecting it to the PC, and nothing happens in iTune – it won’t recognize it, even though I heard the “Ding-Dong” sound in speaker.

    Any other idea? Thanks

    Listen MAC, press your Power Button + Home Button till the black screen appears and then let go of the Power Button and keep holding the Home Button until Itunes show the pop-up and your PC starts detecting your Apple Device. Then after the procedure Restore your iPad. Good Luck :)

    MAC its not necessary that the slide to power-off slide will appear holding your Power Button + Home Button is a force power-off besides you’ll have to hold it for 15 seconds when the black screen will appear then let go off the Power Button and keep holding the Home Button until iTunes show the pop-up and your PC starts detecting your Apple Device.

    The iPad is recognized by iTune (in a laptop with Windows 10). While extracting the software to restore the iPad, the iPad disconnects from the iTune. It is still in recovery mode. I took the iPad to the Apple store in town and they could not do anything. The problem started after I installed the latest upgrade a few weeks ago.

    This problem has been discussed many times I met. They are almost the same or have many similarities. Maybe stuck
    in the update or recovery. There are some solutions I can give you. First, you can follow the tips from Apple.
    If you think the solution from Apple cannot help or it’s really trouble to follow the steps, this is easy for almost people… You can use the third part recovery software like FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery which is easy to use I think, and there’s many softwares like this. Specially, the FonePaw provides some solutions you can see in their website.
