How to fix error 0xE8000015

The issue is most likely you have an iPhone and you forgot the passcode and/or right now the iPhone is disabled.
You will need to put the phone into recovery mode by turning the phone off while plugged into computer and then holding home button and turning the phone on at the same time until you get the iTunes recovery logo.
Then restore the iPhone from there which it will wipe your phone and thats the only way you can't recover data from a disabled iPhone.

Turn off your iPhone

I got same error, I put ipad in recovery mode by pressing home key and power button. Once it ask for connect to itunes. Connect it to any computer running itunes. it will ask you to restore or update. I selected update and after downloading new IOS, Ipad restart, at this moment Itunes will show a message that ipad will restart. Same time i disconnected ipad and it start remaining process without itunes. after completion of whole process my ipad reset successfully.
You have to turn the phone OFF before connecting via USB to computer. For iPhone 7 you need to press the right side button, the volume down button, and the home button all at the same time to get the iTunes logo to appear. I finally got the phone restored after trying for 2 days because no directions were clear.
This fixed it. iPhone 7. Had to connect cable to iTunes power off, then power on while holding down power button and volume down button.
Haven’t used iPad for 2 years. Forgot passcode. Downloaded iTunes, restore to factory failed, with error 0xE8000015.
Downloaded 3u Tools, flashed firmware. 3u Tools wasn’t able to connect to iPad. Flashed firmware again. Still couldn’t connect after flashing, can’t restore on Windows 10.
Connected to iTunes in MacBook, restore failed again.
Connected to iTunes in Windows 10 again, iTunes gave message that iPad was in recovery mode, asked to restore. I clicked ok, iPad restored to factory.
Now I think I remember what the passcode could have been. I don’t know if there’s a way to enter this old passcode to recover the data that was in iPad before factory reset. At least I now have a working iPad.
I Forgot passcode on my IPad. Downloaded iTunes, restore to factory failed, with error message 0xE8000015
Not until I disabled the firewall on my Windows security did I get to the next step Ipad Recovery Mode.
while on IPad Recovery mode you will see a bar in tunes, on the top screen that will say “Extracting Software” . You will be able to monitor the process.
*This is a lengthy process*
