Here are the steps to perform this solution-

Step-1 Connect your iPhone X to your computer using the included USB or Lightning cable.

Step-2 Start your computer and launch iTunes.

Step-4 For 3 seconds, press and hold the Side button (Power button). Then, while still holding down the Side button, press and hold the Volume Down button. Hold down both buttons for 10 seconds.
If the Apple logo appears, you have held the buttons for an inordinate amount of time. If this occurs, you must restart from the beginning.

Step-5 Hold down the Volume Down button for around 5 seconds after releasing the Side button.
If you are confronted with the Plug into iTunes screen, it signifies you have entered Recovery Mode rather than Normal Mode. So go back to the first step and make sure you’re not holding the buttons for too long.
