Before getting started, here are the things you will need:
– An iPhone that needs to be restored

Using a USB to Lightning cable, plug your iPhone into your Chromebook. If prompted on your iPhone, “Trust This Computer,” tap “Trust.”

To enter the recovery mode on your iPhone, press and hold the “Home” and “Power” buttons simultaneously. Don’t release them until you see the Apple logo on the screen. After that, let go of the “Power” button and continue to hold the “Home” button until you see the recovery mode screen. If you have an iPhone X or later, press and hold the “Side” and either volume button simultaneously.

iTunes should detect that your iPhone has entered recovery mode. If not, click on the device icon located at the top left of the iTunes window. Click on the “Restore iPhone” button.
