DFU which stands for Device Firmware Update is an advanced mode that is primarily used to perform a clean install of iOS on an iPhone. In DFU mode the iPhone is able to interface with iTunes without loading the boot loader. A DFU mode is useful when the iPhone is seemingly broken and is only showing the black screen. When an iPhone is in DFU mode users can connect their device to computer and fresh install iOS on it.
