Got a plan to get a brand new iPhone 8 or 8 Plus? Well, personally, I do not recommend you this new coming phone. It has been reported that at least 8 battery swelling incidents had happened since Apple launched the new phones. Luckily, this never happen to the previous iPhone series. Yet, lots of iPhone/iPad users complain that they have to reset their phones when solving problems such as virus attack, iPhone/iPad does not respond to button press, iPhone/iPad stuck in loop, etc. What’s worse, all the data are erased after resetting iPhone/iPad. The same situation also appears on password locked iPhone/iPad after resetting. Therefore, it is essential to backup your important data such as contacts, photos, videos, etc. from your device before you reset it. Then you can recover iPhone/iPad data after restore with the backup.
If you have an iTunes/iCloud backup, you can do as the following guidance to restore iPhone/iPad data after factory reset easily.
Step 1: Restart your device, and operate according to the screen prompts until you see “Apps & Data” screen.
On this screen interface, you will find four choices: Restore from iCloud Backup, Restore from iTunes Backup, Set up as New Phone, Move Data from Android.
Step 2: Choose the corresponding backup you want to restore from and then click it and act as the prompts ask.
Note: During the restore process, keep your device connected to Wi-Fi and wait for the progress bar to become finished.
The steps may seem easy but please note that it may take a few minutes or even hours to complete the whole process according to the size of the backup file and your Wi-Fi network speed. And once you disconnect your network, the progress bar ends as a consequence until you reconnect your Wi-Fi.
