Guideliness To Force Start Iphone8 and some newer versions

This article will discuss how to force start different iPhone models.
When your device becomes completely unresponsive, you can choose between waiting for the battery to deplete and initiating a hard reset.

A hard reset is basically the equivalent of pulling the power plug, forcing your iPhone to shut down and start up again.

Recovery mode takes this a step further, putting your device into a state where you can reinstall iOS by connecting your iPhone to a computer running iTunes (or by using Finder on macOS Catalina and newer).

If your iPhone refuses to boot or crashes on startup, you’ll need to put the device into recovery mode in order to rescue it.

Note that when you reinstall iOS, you’ll lose all the data on your iPhone. This isn’t a problem if you make regular iPhone backups, which you can do using iCloud or locally in iTunes or Finder.

Unfortunately, you can’t back up your device in recovery mode, since iTunes will only offer to restore the firmware.
