Recovery mode is often used to fix iPhone severe problems such as iPhone stuck in restore or iPhone update problems. It is considered as the most efficient self-troubleshooting method for all iPhone users. Once you have faced some severe device problems and you have backed up your device with iTunes before, just put your device in recovery mode and restore it with iTunes, then problem solved.
