DFU Mode (device firmware upgrade) is very significant. You will need to enable it on your device while jailbreaking, unjailbreaking, fixing any issue or updating from an expired beta. When you enter your smartphone into this mode, it will be able to communicate with iTunes even without activating iOS or boot loader. Moreover, it lets your device restore from any state.
How to Put iPhone 7/7 Plus into DFU Mode
Note: Before going ahead with the process, you need to ensure you have the latest version of iTunes installed on your device.
Step #1. First up, connect your iPhone 7 to your computer.
Step #2. Now, turn off your iPhone. (Simply press the on/off button then swipe right from left on “Slide to power off”)
Step #3. Next, you need to press and hold down the On/Off button on the right side of your iPhone for 3 seconds.
Step #4. Press and hold down the volume down button located on the left side of your smartphone while still holding down the On/Off button.
Step #5. Keep holding both buttons for about 10 seconds.
(If Apple logo appears on the screen you have held them for a bit too long. Then, you need to start it again.)
Step #6. Next, you need to let go off the On/Off Button. However, keep holding the volume down button for about 5 seconds.
(If you hold them for a bit long, “Plug into iTunes” will appear on the screen. Then you have to start it again.)
Step #7. Your smartphone will now enter into DFU mode. An alert from iTunes wil appear on the screen; saying it has detected your device and will allow the phone to be restored.
