    I went to somewhere (23rd of December, Brussels time) and hadn't got my Lightning cable with me. At 5 PM my battery was around 20%. Because I hadn't got my cable with me I powered off my iDevice to save the battery that still was available. After an hour I needed something that I wrote earlier in the Notes app. So I powered my iDevice on and got the info I needed. When I was done the battery was around 15% and I powered it back off. When I got home 5 hours later I connected my iPhone with the Lightning cable and put it on the wall socket. It powered on, I saw the Apple logo on the screen but right after that it shuts down. I put the iPhone in Recovery mode and let it charge the whole night. The day after, it was the same story all over: I exit Recovery mode, powered my iPhone on, Apple logo, black screen, powered of by itself, powers on, Apple logo, ... and this continuously.
    I connected my iPhone to my Windows computer running the latest version of iTunes (12.5.4.42) and it recognized my iPhone in Recovery mode and asked me to update restore or wipe restore (clean install). Because my local backup was from a month ago I first wanted to try update restore. Before this my iPhone was running iOS 10.1.1. iTunes started to download iOS 10.2 and after that I saw iTunes saying "Connecting to iPhone ...". My iPhone restarted, black screen, connect to iTunes screen and it throw back an error code in iTunes: 4013.
    I contacted Apple Support and told them everything. They gave me info on when an automatic iCloud backup was made and luckily it was made on the 21st. So I could safely do a clean install/restore. I clicked restore in iTunes and it began restoring. But ... it was the same result: My iPhone restarted, black screen, connect to iTunes screen and it throw back an error code in iTunes: 4013.
    I tried different Lightning cables and USB ports but all same result: error 4013.
    How could I solve this problem? Also would it be a software problem or a hardware problem?
    I hope I provide you with detailed information of my problem and hope the community or Apple itself can help me with this.
    Thanks in advance!
    (Phone 7 Plus, iOS 10.1.1, 256GB)

    Put the device in DFU mode. Instructions for that can be found via the following link.

    Before going the DFU mode route, read the information via the following link regarding error 4013.

    OK I think there's no other option. I'll do it right a way.

    Ok let me help you solve error 4013 first download this program call [redacted] connect iPhone to it and click on recovery on the program and it should fix the error and make your iPhone work again contact me if anything else comes up
    Maybe I’m just overly cautious but I would never trust a third party recovery program that nobody has ever heard of with my iPhone data. That’s asking for trouble in my opinion!

    Well rob Phillips I must respect your opinion am living in Jamaica so there is no Apple store here so I had to find a solution to fix my iPhone error 4013 that the [redacted] was the only tool that help me. But this is what I think you are not getting tho is that you don’t of to login the program or sign in just connect your iPhone then click recovery and it will force your iPhone to turn on is won’t even take your data at all cause when I did it to my iPhone 7 Plus has I click recovery the Apple sign blink on and off then the phone turn on and I unplugged it but I respect your concern
    send me a link to the program please [redacted]
