Recovery mode allows you to restore your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, when updating or all else fails.
If updating your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad through Software Update or iTunes simply isn’t working, you’re trying to get off a latest update or bad beta version, or your device has simply become completely unresponsive and nothing else is working, recovery mode might be just what you need to get things done again. It’s painful, so it’s more of an almost-last resort than a first step. It’s not complicated, however, and knowing about recovery mode is important if you ever need it.
