Step 5- iTunes will open automatically on the screen so as to inform you that your device is in recovery mode and that you need to reinstate the device. But if iTunes doesn’t open by itself in 1 to 2 minutes then please open it yourself.

Step 5- Click on the “Ok” button and then click on “Restore” button to restore the device.
