After that, connect your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch to PC using a USB cable. Once the tool detects your iDevice, you will get two options: Standard Mode and Advanced Mode.

Note– Using Standard mode fixes several iOS issues by retaining data from the device. Advanced mode also fixes several iOS system issues but deletes data from the device. Therefore, it is suggested to use advanced mode only when standard mode fails.
