Step 2: Make a force restart, by simply holding the sleep/wake button and the Home button on your iPhone or iPad at the same time simultaniously, until you see the Apple Logo tickling.
Step 3: Connect the iPhone or iPad to the computer via Lightning cable and launch iTunes.
Step 4: Click on the Summary tab on the left side of iTunes.
Step 5: Now hold down the Shift key on Windows or Option/Alt key if you’re on Mac and click on the Restore iPhone button.
