My iPhone is in recovery mode and I want to recover some photos. Does anyone know if dr.fone works? I don't want to pay for something that doesn't do the job.

Try iTools Pro (google it). It recovered my photos (but I only had 55 so I don't know if there is a maximum it will do for free).

Is your phone stuck in Recovery Mode?

  • Dr Fone will kick the iPhone out of Recovery Mode if that is all you need. – K Prosser Jul 10 '17 at 19:17
  • It is stuck in recovery mode and gets error occurred (9) when I attempt to update the software in iTunes. – PatriciaW Jul 10 '17 at 19:36
  • Looks like iTools is a window program. I have a Mac. – PatriciaW Jul 10 '17 at 19:40
  • iTools has both a Windows and a Mac version. On sale.itools.cn you will find the Mac version of iTools (actually iTools Pro). The trial version will kick your iPhone out of Recovery Mode. So will Dr. Fone. – K Prosser Jul 11 '17 at 18:40
  • Ultimately I decided that the phone was not repairable. And the programs I investigated would not recover photos without pay. Thanks for the suggestions – PatriciaW Jul 11 '17 at 21:08
