What is DFU Mode ? 

DFU mode refers to  (Device Firmware Update) and as Apple explained it is the state that you can put your iPhone into where it can interface with iTunes, but does not load the iPhone operating system or boot loader (this is what really differs DFU mode from the more simple recovery mode).

What is DFU Mode used for ?

The basic or main use of the DFU mode is to update or change the firmware and iOS on the device, either out of troubleshooting requirements, or personal preference. This can serve to restore a bricked iPhone where updating iOS has failed and the phone is seemingly broken, but it can also be used sometimes to downgrade to a prior iPhone firmware and operating system. In some unique situations, it can also be used to install custom firmware that is required for a jailbreak or SIM unlock.

Now and as you know almost everything about DFU mode and what it is used for and what the cases you need to use it, we're going through the guide about how to use it on your iOS device step-by-step.

STEP 2: Keep holding the two buttons for 10 seconds, release the Power button but continue holding the Volume down button until you see a message from iTunes saying iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

STEP 3: Release the Volume down button and you can see the screen of your device is totally black, that means you’ve entered iPhone X into DFU mode successfully.
