Suggested December 2023 Iphone Dfu Mode Explained: How To Use & Enter Dfu Mode On Iphone

What is iPhone DFU mode?

DFU mode is a state that you can put your iPhone into where it can interface with iTunes, but does not load the iPhone operating system or boot loader (this is what really differs DFU mode from the more simple recovery mode). DFU stands for Device Firmware Update.

What is DFU Mode Used for? How to Enter iPhone DFU Mode

You will need iTunes (Mac or Windows PC), the iOS device (in this case, an iPhone), and a USB cable, in order to enter into DFU mode:

Connect the iPhone to your computer and launch iTunes

Turn the iPhone off (hold down the power button at the top of the iPhone) if it isn’t off already

Hold down the sleep/power button and home button together for exactly 10 seconds, then release the power button

Continue to hold down the Home button until a message appears in iTunes telling you an iPhone in recover mode has been detected, here is what that that message in iTunes usually looks like:

When you are in DFU mode your iPhone screen will be completely black, but detected by iTunes

This is what an iPhone in DFU mode looks like, it’s not much, just a black screen – but critically, it’s detected by iTunes on the computer:

Even though the screen is black, that doesn’t mean the device can’t be interfaced with either iTunes or a custom firmware client (for jailbreaking, etc).

Remember that if you see the restore logo, iTunes logo, or any message on the iPhone screen, you are not in DFU mode but standard Recovery Mode. Again, DFU mode is signified by having a completely black screen on the device. If anything else is the case, repeat the steps above until you enter into DFU mode successfully.

Restoring a Device from DFU Mode

Once you are in DFU mode you can restore the iPhone with firmware by selecting the appropriate iOS IPSW files, or set it up as new, restore from a backup, update with iTunes itself to the latest version of iOS, or whatever else you need to do. We cover using IPSW files in detail here.

Do note that you can usually perform a simple iOS update or restore with Recovery Mode, DFU is not always required, particularly for some more basic troubleshooting situations.

How to Exit DFU Mode on iPhone

The simplest way to exit out of DFU mode is to hold down the Home and sleep/power buttons on the iPhone while connected to iTunes. Then just hit the power button as and this should reboot the device as usual.

And if you’re curious, yes this works all the same on an iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, it’s all the same.

The most common use for DFU mode is to repair and restore a bricked iphone, sometimes to attempt an iOS downgrade to an earlier version, or for reasons pertaining to a jailbreak. In the latter situation, it’s not unusual for people to buy an existing iPhone and jailbreak and unlock the device to use the phone on another network or overseas. But there are other purposes for DFU mode as well, and it’s a handy troubleshooting trick if you’re in a bind and an iOS device is seemingly not working at all, and not responding to typical tricks if it’s refusing to turn on.

All Devices Support DFU

Do note DFU mode works on all iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices, with all versions of iOS, and it can be detected with all versions of iTunes. That said, you will generally want to have the most recent version of iTunes available to avoid trouble updating and restoring devices from iTunes.

One thing to keep in mind is that some of the newer Apple devices have different methods of entering DFU mode, for example entering DFU mode on iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus and DFU mode on iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are different from DFU mode on prior devices because the hardware buttons have changed or been removed. You may also want to know how to enter DFU mode on iPad Pro (2023 and newer with Face ID), enter DFU mode on iPad with Home button, or enter DFU on iPhone XS, XR, XS Max, X.

How To Use Dfu Mode On Iphone And Ipad

On rare occasions, your iPhone or iPad can run into serious issues—perhaps after a botched software update—that you can’t fix with standard troubleshooting. Before taking the device to an Apple Store, however, there’s one last thing you should try—resetting the iPhone or iPad in DFU (Device Firmware Update) Mode.

Table of Contents

When You Should Enter DFU Mode

If you have a malfunctioning iPhone or iPad, you must first update or reset it in Recovery Mode. Only resort to using DFU Mode in instances where the device continues to:

Resetting your iPhone or iPad in DFU Mode will permanently erase all data on it. If you have a recent iCloud or iTunes/Finder backup, you can restore the lost data after the reset procedure. You can also get back any data—such as photos and contacts—that you’ve set to sync with iCloud by signing into your Apple ID later on.

If the device shows up in iTunes/Finder when you connect it to a Mac or PC, it’s a good idea to create a fresh backup online or locally before entering and using DFU Mode on your iPhone.

What You Need to Enter DFU Mode

You need a Mac or PC to enter and interact with DFU Mode—via the iTunes or Finder apps—on the iPhone or iPad. You should also have a compatible USB cable to connect the malfunctioning device to the computer physically. 

Note: On the PC, you must download and install iTunes manually (if you haven’t already). The Mac comes with iTunes pre-installed, but it’s replaced by the Finder app  starting with macOS Catalina.

However, there’s no reason to use a Mac or PC that you’ve previously used for backup or sync purposes. DFU Mode does not require access to any files on the iPhone or iPad, so any macOS or Windows 10 device should be good enough. 

How to Enter DFU Mode

To enter DFU Mode on the iPhone or iPad, you must press various buttons that change depending on the device’s make and model. The steps below may appear confusing—and tricky—to time correctly at first, so you may fail a few times before getting them right.  

Unlike Recovery Mode, the screen on your iPhone or iPad will remain blank in DFU Mode. If you see anything (such as a “Plug into Mac/PC” indicator) at the end of the steps, you must try again.

Note: The following instructions work on an iPhone or iPad regardless of whether it’s powered On or Off.

1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to a Mac or PC.

2. Open iTunes or the Finder app.

3. Press and quickly release the Volume Up button on the iPhone or iPad.

4. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button.

5. Quickly press and hold the Side/Top button until the screen turns black. Or, wait until the Apple logo shows up and disappears again. 

6. Immediately hold down the Volume Down button without releasing the Side button.

7. Wait for 5 seconds.

8. Release the Side button but keep holding the Volume Down button.

9. Release the Volume Down button once the device shows up in iTunes or Finder. 

iPhone 7 Series

1. Connect your iPhone or iPad to your Mac or PC.

2. Open iTunes or the Finder app.

3. Press and hold the iPhone’s Side and Volume Down buttons.

4. Wait for 8-10 seconds. In the meantime, the screen should turn off, or the Apple logo should show up and disappear.

5. Release the Side button while holding the Volume Down button. 

6. Release the Volume Down button once you see the device in iTunes or Finder.

1. Connect your iPhone to your Mac or PC.

2. Open iTunes or the Finder app.

3. Press and hold the Side/Top and Home buttons on the iPhone or iPad. 

4. Wait for 8-10 seconds. 

4. Release the Side/Top button but keep holding down the Home button. 

5. Release the Home button once you see the device in iTunes or Finder.

How to Use DFU Mode on iPhone and iPad

In DFU Mode, select Restore iPhone or Restore iPad to begin resetting the iPhone or iPad. iTunes/Finder will automatically download the latest version of the iOS/iPadOS system software (which typically amounts to 5-6GB) and install it on your iPhone or iPad. It will also restore the firmware.

Note: Suppose your iPhone or iPad automatically exits DFU mode during the download phase. In that case, you must perform the button presses all over again and wait for iTunes/Finder to finish the download.

Do not disconnect your iPhone or iPad while iTunes/Finder is actively re-installing the system software and firmware. That will make the device completely unusable.

If DFU mode completes successfully, select the Restore from iCloud Backup or the Restore from Mac or PC option while setting up your iPhone or iPad to restore data from an iCloud or iTunes/Finder backup.

How to Exit DFU Mode on iPhone and iPad

If you want to exit DFU Mode without resetting your iPhone or iPad, you must force-restart the device.

1. Press and quickly release the Volume Up button. 

2. Press and quickly release the Volume Down button. 

3. Quickly press and hold the Side/Top button until you see the Apple logo on the screen.

iPhone 7 Series

Press and hold both the Side and Volume Down buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

Press and hold both the Side/Top and the Home buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen.

The Next Course of Action

Performing a reset in DFU Mode does not guarantee that you’ll end up fixing your iPhone or iPad. Some issues—specifically those related to faulty hardware—are impossible to resolve by restoring the system software and firmware.

How To Use Low Power Mode On Apple Watch

While most of us are in the habit of charging the Apple Watch daily, what happens if you’re away from a charger for a longer period of time? That would’ve traditionally meant running out of battery, but with watchOS 9 and Apple’s new Low Power Mode, there’s now another option available.

Here’s all you need to know about using Low Power Mode on the Apple Watch, from supported models to the features it’ll disable and, of course, how to enable it.

Which models of Apple Watch support Low Power mode?

While Low Power Mode was announced as a feature of the Apple Watch Series 8 at Apple’s September 2023 event, the feature isn’t exclusive to Apple’s latest wearable. In fact, it’s available for quite a few models of Apple Watch running watchOS 9 including:

Apple Watch Ultra

Apple Watch Series 8

Apple Watch SE (second-gen)

Apple Watch Series 7

Apple Watch Series 6

Apple Watch SE (first-gen)

Apple Watch Series 5

Apple Watch Series 4

Older models of Apple Watch, including the Series 3, Series 2, Series 1 and the OG Apple Watch don’t get access to the latest Apple Watch update, meaning they miss out on the Low Power mode functionality.

If you’re tempted to upgrade to the latest generation, take a look at where to buy the Apple Watch Series 8 and our Apple Watch Series 8 review too.

What features does Low Power Mode disable?

Of course, the whole point of a low-power mode – be it on iPhone, iPad or Apple Watch – is to disable certain functionality to extend battery life. Apple strives to provide the most functionality in Low Power mode as possible, but it’s particularly noticeable when it comes to the Apple Watch, disabling some key features of Apple’s wearable.

Apple does explain what it’s doing to enable the long battery life when enabling Low Power mode on the Apple Watch, but in case you dismissed it or you’re just curious, enabling Low Power mode on Apple’s wearable does the following:

Disables always-on display, heart rate monitoring including notifications for irregular rhythm, blood oxygen monitoring and start workout reminders

App notifications are delivered hourly

Call notifications are disabled

Wi-Fi and Cellular are disabled

Making calls can take longer

Background app refresh happens less frequently

Watch complications refresh less frequently

Siri can take longer to process requests

Possible stutter in animations and when scrolling

It’s worth noting that measurements including heart rate and pace are still measured when using tracking an exercise via the Workout app with Low Power Mode active, so you don’t need to worry about losing out on valuable exercise data to extend battery life.

How to enable Low Power Mode on an Apple Watch

Scroll to the bottom of the explainer and tap ‘Turn on’

Tip: Low Power Mode automatically turns off when your Watch reaches 80% charge, but if you want to use it for longer, you can tap Turn on For… to enable Low Power mode for either 1, 2 or 3 days.

Now, Low Power Mode should now be active on your Apple Watch, represented by a yellow circle icon at the top of the screen. The battery percentage indicator, charging animation and nightstand text colour will also turn yellow to indicate its status.

How long will my Apple Watch last with Low Power Mode enabled?

Apple claims that you can effectively double the battery life of a standard Apple Watch on Low Power mode, extending from its standard 18 hours to up to 36 hours.

That’s impressive, but it’s most impressive on the Apple Watch Ultra, which extends the battery from its standard 36 hours to a whopping 60 hours.

What Is Slow Mode On Discord And How To Use It

If you’re running an active Discord server, you might find yourself overwhelmed with the number of messages that your users are sending. This is especially true if you’re streaming with an active audience, where you can expect messages to quickly pick up speed in a channel, and where not every message you see will be appropriate.

Table of Contents

What Is Slow Mode on Discord?

Discord’s slow mode feature is designed to reduce the number of messages that appear in a channel. When you send a message on Discord, the message usually appears immediately afterwards in the channel for others to view. If you and other users are sending multiple messages, however, this can make it difficult to follow.

A way around this is to use slow mode on Discord to limit how many messages a user can send in a short space of time. For instance, if you send a message in a channel with slow mode enabled, you won’t be able to send another message for the duration of the cooldown period. This can be set to any time between five seconds and six hours.

This restriction will only apply to standard Discord users. If the user has a Discord server role with Manage Channel or Manage Messages permissions, or these permissions are applied to the user in that channel directly, then slow mode won’t apply, and the user will be able to send messages as normal.

Enabling this feature helps to reduce channel message spam, as it allows users to send messages, but only in single bursts. If you’re a standard user, you can also mute other Discord users you don’t like, hiding their messages from view. For server owners, you’re free to kick or ban disruptive users in the server settings menu.

How to Enable or Disable Slow Mode on Discord on PC or Mac

Discord’s slow mode isn’t enabled on channels by default, but you can activate it on your server in channels that are particularly busy. Only server administrators or users with permissions to edit a channel’s settings are able to enable slow mode, and the setting can be switched on or off at any time.

If you want to enable or disable slow mode on a Discord server using your PC or Mac, here’s what you’ll need to do.

To start, open the Discord PC or Mac client or open the Discord web client in your web browser. Once you’ve signed in, select your server from the vertical list on the left, then select a channel you wish to enable or disable slow mode in. Select the Edit Channel icon next to the channel name to proceed.

In the Overview settings menu for the Discord channel, use your mouse to move the Slowmode slider to the right to enable it, choosing a time period between 5s (five seconds) and 6h (six hours) in length.

If you’d prefer to disable Discord’s slow mode, use your mouse to move the slider to the Off position instead.

After choosing to enable or disable slow mode, or if you’re increasing or decreasing the slow mode cooldown period, you’ll need to save your new channel settings. Select Save Changes in the menu bar at the bottom to confirm any changes you’ve made.

The new slow mode settings you select will activate immediately. If you choose to enable slow mode, any user without the Manage Channel or Manage Messages permission for that channel will see a cooldown timer underneath the channel message text box. This will run for the cooldown period you selected.

If you’ve disabled slow mode on Discord, however, your users will be able to send messages without any time limitations.

How to Enable or Disable Slow Mode on Mobile Devices

You can actively manage your Discord server setting using the Discord app on Android or Apple iPhone/iPad devices. If you have the app installed, you can follow the steps below to quickly enable or disable slow mode on Discord using your mobile device.

To start, open the Discord app on your Android or Apple device and sign in (if you haven’t already). In the Discord app, select the menu icon in the top left to view the server and channel list.

Select your server from the vertical channel list on the left. On the right, select and hold a channel in the channel list until the pop-up settings menu appears at the bottom.

In the channel menu, select the Edit Channel option.

Swipe down to the bottom of the Channel Settings menu to view the Slowmode options. Using your finger, move the Slowmode cooldown slider to the right to enable the feature, choosing any period between five seconds and six hours. 

If you want to disable slow mode, move the slider to the furthest point on the left until the Slowmode is off message appears on the right.

To save your new channel settings, select the Save button at the bottom of the menu. Once you’ve saved your settings, use the arrow button in the top left or your device’s back button to exit the menu.

Any channel settings you change will be activated as soon as you save the changes. If you enable slow mode, the cooldown period you selected will apply to that channel for any messages sent by users without Manage Channel or Manage Server permissions. The timer itself will appear above the channel message text box.

If you disable slow mode, any message cooldown periods will be removed immediately, allowing users to send messages without any timing restrictions.

Using Discord Effectively

If Discord isn’t opening or you’re having troubleshooting issues, you can always switch to the Discord web client or Discord Canary, the testing version of the software. Discord isn’t for everyone, however, so if you’re looking for an alternative, you could always give Slack or Teamspeak a try instead.

How To Use Iphone With Linux (Guide)

iPhones are, by definition, restricted to sync with iTunes. That is, unless you jailbreak them. While I personally have no issue with this, the fact remains that Apple has, for some reason, not put out an iTunes client for Linux distros. This can be a huge headache for iPhone users who want to use a Linux desktop, because it’s not possible to sync iPhones with Linux distros like Ubuntu. So, if you’re wondering how you can use an iPhone with Linux, here is a complete guide that might help you:

Understanding the Problem

The main problem, with using an iPhone with a Linux system, is the fact that you just can’t sync it. iTunes is the only software that a non-jailbroken iPhone will sync with, and it is not available for any Linux platforms, yet. There are a number of libraries such as “libimobiledevice” that tried to let users sync iPhones with Linux, but not only is it a hassle to get it running, it doesn’t work for iOS 10. So if you have an iPhone, and you’re using a Linux system as your daily driver, you’re kind of out of luck.

How about some Wine

Wine (which is a recursive acronym for Wine Is Not an Emulator) is a compatibility layer application that can allow a user to run Windows apps on a Linux system (most of the time). So my first attempt at using an iPhone with Linux was to run iTunes with Wine. I used PlayOnLinux as the front-end for the software, and then I found out, that Wine will not allow for USB passthrough, so there’s no way that an iPhone will sync with it. You could still use iTunes for everything else, including managing your iCloud Music Library, but if it doesn’t sync with an iPhone, there’s really no use for it. Which brings us to a workaround of sorts.

OwnCloud and XAMPP for Transferring Files Between Linux and iPhone

The first problem that we’ll tackle, is somehow enabling the transfer of files, and documents between an iPhone and a Linux desktop. To do this, you can use something like OwnCloud, along with XAMPP on your Linux system.

OwnCloud is a self-hosted cloud server that you can access on your iPhone. It comes with a free plan, and is pretty much the best way to be able to transfer documents between your iPhone and a Linux desktop. However, OwnCloud requires a server to run on, in the first place, which is where XAMPP steps in.

XAMPP is an easy way to get a LAMP server running on your Linux, Mac, or Windows system. Just be careful that you install a version of XAMPP running at least PHP 5.4, because OwnCloud will not work on anything below that.

Installing XAMPP on Ubuntu 16.10

We’ll install XAMPP first, and set up a folder where we can keep the OwnCloud files. To do this, just follow the steps below:

Download the XAMPP installer from the official website. It will be in the form of a .run file.

Here, we’ll first give the installer permissions to execute. In the Terminal, run the command “chmod +x“.

Now, we will execute the installer, with root permissions using the command “sudo ./“. You will be asked for your password. Type it in (it will not be displayed, even as asterisks), and hit Enter.

The installer will then run, and you simply have to follow the instructions in the installer to install XAMPP on your system. It is installed in the “/opt/” directory.

Creating a Folder to Place the OwnCloud Files for XAMPP

Now that XAMPP is installed, we need a folder we can place the OwnCloud files, so that XAMPP can run it. There’s a folder called htdocs, where you can place the websites that you want XAMPP to be able to run, and it is present at “/opt/lampp/htdocs”. We’ll not place the OwnCloud files inside the “opt” directory, though. Just follow the steps below:

In Terminal, navigate to the home folder with “cd ~“, or just “cd“.

Now, make a folder called “public_html” here, with the command “mkdir public_html“.

Next, we will give read/write access to everyone for the “public_html” folder with the command “sudo chmod 777 -R public_html“.

Now, use the command “cd /opt/lampp/htdocs“, to navigate into the htdocs folder.

Here, just run the command “sudo ln -s /home/username/public_html ./username“. Replace “username” with your Username in Linux. In my case, the username is “akshay”, so the command I’m using is “sudo ln -s /home/akshay/public_html ./akshay”.

Your “public_html” folder is now ready to host files for XAMPP to run. Let’s install OwnCloud now.

Installing OwnCloud on Ubuntu 16.10

Download the ZIP file for OwnCloud from their official website.

Extract this into the “public_html” folder you created while setting up XAMPP.

Running OwnCloud on XAMPP in Ubuntu 16.10

You can now run OwnCloud on your Ubuntu 16.10 system, with XAMPP. Just follow the steps below:

In Terminal, run the command “sudo /opt/lampp/lampp start“. This will start the XAMPP server on your system.

You will be presented with a screen where you’ll have to create your admin username, and password. Simply choose whatever you want to use as your login credentials.

Once you sign in, you’ll be taken to the main OwnCloud interface. This is where you can upload, delete, and otherwise manage all your files.

Connecting to OwnCloud from iPhone

So you’ve uploaded all the files you want to be able to access on your iPhone, to your OwnCloud server. There’s still the matter of actually connecting your iPhone to OwnCloud before you can actually transfer files between the devices. To do this, you’ll have to allow the config file for OwnCloud to allow access using the IP address of your computer.

Editing the OwnCloud config File

Editing the OwnCloud config is easy, just follow the steps below:

In Terminal, navigate to the OwnCloud config folder, using “cd /home/username/public_html/owncloud/config“.

Here, run the command “sudo nano chúng tôi This will open up the config file inside Terminal, ready to be edited.

Simply locate the line that says “trusted_domains“. You will see “localhost” already added there. Create a new line after “localhost”, and type the IP address of your computer inside single quotes. The edited “trusted_domains” section should look something like this: ),[/php]

Connecting iPhone to OwnCloud

Connecting your iPhone to your OwnCloud server is easy, and can be done in one of two ways. We’ll discuss both of them here, and you can use the one that suits you better.

1. Connecting from iPhone to OwnCloud with Safari

You will be presented with a login screen. Use the credentials you created while setting up OwnCloud to log in. Once you do this, you will be shown all the files and folders present on your OwnCloud server. You can browse the files, and download any files that you want.

2. Connecting from iPhone to OwnCloud with a WebDAV client

OwnCloud supports WebDAV to transfer files, and if you have an app (like Documents 5 by Readdle), that can connect to WebDAV servers, you can easily access your OwnCloud server with it. There are quite a number of iPhone file managers that support WebDAV, and you can use any one of them to connect to OwnCloud. I’m using Documents 5.

Launch Documents 5 on your iPhone, and tap on the icon that says “Services“. Here, tap on “Add Account“.

Once you’re done, just tap on “Save“, and Documents will connect to your OwnCloud server. You will then be able to view (and download) all the files available on your OwnCloud server.

Note: If you use DHCP (you probably do), chances are, your computer’s IP address will keep changing, and you will have to manually edit the config file everytime it happens. It’s better if you assign a static IP address to your computer, so you only have to edit the config file once.

Google Play Music to Manage Music between Linux and iPhone

Since we’re out of luck with iTunes on Linux, we’ll have to turn to other options. One of these options is Google Play Music. The music service will allow you to upload your music to the cloud, and you can access on your iPhone with the official Google Play Music app. With this, we’re completely bidding adieu to iTunes. So, let’s see how to get this done.

Using Google Music Manager to Upload Music on Google Play Music

Download the Google Music Manager client from the official website. It is downloaded a s .deb package in Ubuntu, and will directly open in the Software Center, and you can install it.

From your Application launcher, look for Google Music Manager, and launch it.

Follow the steps to get Music Manager set up, and running. Once everything is done, your music library will be automatically uploaded to your Google Play Music library.

Once your songs have uploaded (it may take time, depending on the size of your library), you can launch the Google Play Music app on your iPhone (download), and sign in with your Google account. You’ll find your music right there.

In the future, you just have to put your new music files in your Music folder in Linux, and Google Music Manager will automatically upload it to the Google Play Music library, so you can access it on your iPhone, and any other device you have Google Play Music installed on.

Use your iOS device with Linux with these services

You can manage everything on your iPhone or even iPad with Linux, using the services I have mentioned in this article. Plus, all of these services have a free tier available that you can use. Google Play Music offers a free plan that will let you upload up to 50,000 songs on the cloud, and OwnCloud allows you to host your own server, which means that you don’t need to pay them anything. Obviously, this is nowhere as easy as using iTunes to sync an iPhone – a process that just works – but, this is the closest you can come to using an iPhone with Linux.
