iPhone Stuck on iTunes Connecting Screen
 
Forgot the passcode of an old iPhone 5S and was using iTunes to remove the code. I was told to boot iPhone in Recovery mode so I can use iTunes to restore the iPhone.

When iTunes fully downloaded iOS firmware and starts to restore iPhone, it failed saying 'unknown error occurred 3014'

Now the iPhone was stuck on iTunes connecting screen forever. How to fix it?

Hmm, sounds to me like you are trying to use iOS on the iPhone to perform a Mac OS function. To restore an iPhone you must use iTunes on a Mac computer with the iPhone plugged in to the USB port of the computer with a charging cord. Then perform the restore attempt from the computer, not the iPhone.

The usual response to "forgot the passcode" is an ironic "where did you 'find' it?'"

Where did you 'find' the phone?

It is quite understandable for the question. It is my device with iCloud lock. So even the passcode was remove in this way, you still need to login Apple ID to verify the device.

The problem is that I can't restore the iPhone via iTunes on my MBP.

I'd suggest giving Apple Support a call and I'm sure they will be able to help get things sorted out and working.

PS: The "scammer guy" was just a bit of a bad situation and a bit of a bad joke here.

Also, I don't know if Apple's recent changes with iTunes has any bearing on your problem. I do know that a lot of users are really P'd off with it!!

Try this:
Restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch from a backup
https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT204184

To restore an iPhone you must use either an iCloud or iTunes backup. So says Apple.

For others try this:

Personally we use and I prefer iMazing
. Waaaay better and complete with more options than Apples attempts and methods.
Yes it costs a small bit but worth it IMHO.
