This problem has been discussed many times I met. They are almost the same or have many similarities. Maybe stuck in the update or recovery. There are some solutions I can give you. First, you can follow the tips from Apple. https://support.apple.com/HT201263 If you think the solution from Apple cannot help or it's really trouble to follow the steps, this is easy for almost people... You can use the third part recovery software like FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery which is easy to use I think, and there's many softwares like this. Specially, the FonePaw provides some solutions you can see here http://www.fonepaw.com/tutorials/iphone-stuck-in-recovery-mode.html
