To go on with this mode of solving the problem, you will need to connect your device through a USB cable to your PC and sign in to iTunes. For the respective iPhone devices, you will need to initiate the pressing of the keys reminiscent of the force reboot manner. This is until a message pops saying that iTunes has detected a phone in recovery mode. After this release the buttons when the screen goes blank and you will be able to restore your device.
