    Try the following procedure, but understand that the entire iPhone will be wiped of its data so make sure you have backups of your photos, music, videos, documents, etcetera somewhere on your computer or in the cloud somewhere.

    1. Make sure your computer is connected to the internet
    2. Download and install the latest iTunes version on your computer.
    3. Put your device in Recovery Mode.
    4. After the process has finished, the latest version of iOS 8 should be installed on your device.
    5. After selecting the language and entering any Wi-Fi network credentials, you will be prompted to set up your device as new or restore from a backup. Select the one you prefer.
