First, you’ll need a computer. The entire DFU process happens on iTunes, so you need a working computer with iTunes installed on it. It can be a PC or a Mac. The process of entering DFU mode for iPhone 6s is similar to entering DFU mode with an iPhone. There are, however, slight differences, so read on to get it right.
What is DFU mode in iPhone and iPad or iPod ?
Device Firmware Update is a mode that an iPhone or iPad can be put in to get your device back into working again. DFU can update your firmware to the latest version or even downgrade to an earlier or latest ios version, but Condition it will also completely clear your iphone from all personal data, including current settings, contacts, photos, music – everything will be erased.
If you simply want to update to the latest iOS version while keeping all your personal data, what you want to use is iPhone 6s recovery mode. It updates the firmware and then recovers all your files and settings, hence the name “recovery.”
Why is it important to Put Your iPhone in Dfu Mode?
Sometimes when trying to flash or restore your iDevice multiple showing error like
- driver not detect windows

When you DFU restore your iPhone, your computer erases and reloads every bit of code that controls the software and hardware on your iPhone. There’s the potential for something to go wrong.
If your iPhone is damaged in any way, and especially if it’s water-damaged, a DFU restore may break your iPhone. I’ve worked with customers who tried to restore their iPhones to fix a minor problem, but water had damaged another component that prevented the restore from completing. A useable iPhone with minor problems can become completely unusable if a DFU restore fails because of water damage.
