iPhone Stuck on the Screen that was Told to Plug into iTunes (iTunes Logo is Red in the Latest iTunes 12)
I plugged my iPhone in to iTunes on my computer the other day to update the newest iOS 8. and it worked fine until an unknown error popped up mid update so I pressed cancel and unplugged my iPhone but on my iPhone it just told me to plug my phone into iTunes but every time I plug it in, my phone nor computer read it as plugged in. My phone is now stuck on the screen that tells me to plug it into iTunes. I can turn it on and off and reset it but it is still stuck on the screen. I have checked the plug with other phones and it is fully functional. iTunes is also updated to the newest software on the computer. Who can help me out of this dread screen? Much thanks!

How to Exit the “Connect to iTunes” Screen on iOS Devices?
Literally, the strange and dread screen on which shows “USB -> iTunes” is called Recovery Mode screen, it mostly happened when iOS update, jailbreak or somewhat related. It is not that horrific when you are stuck. Here I will recommend you the best and easiest tool called ReiBoot to get the plug-in iTunes logo off from your iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, iPod all included).
It is the best and easiest because:
1. No need to connect your iPhone/iPad/iPod to iTunes as Apple told you (So it is never mind if iTunes can’t detect your device)
3. No need to restore your device to fix the stuck screen (So you don’t need to worry about data loss)
4. No need to hold any button like Power or Home
5. Only one click to Enter or Exit Recovery Mode
6. Totally free and safe

Now that we have got the free program ReiBoot, now let’s learn how to use it. Frankly speaking, it is very easy, anyone can operate it freely.
Step 1. Download and install it on your computer: Both Windows and Mac are supported for free but have different download package. For Mac users, here is the ReiBoot Mac Download.
