Itunes broke while updating
My i Phone 5S is stuck on the "Connect to i Tunes" screen after trying to install the i OS 8 update. I need the i Phone to communicate with people because I have speech problems.
Earlier this week, owners of older-model i Phones and i Pads were complaining that when trying to update to i OS 9.3, the operating system version Apple (aapl) announced at its "Let us loop you in" event on Monday, their devices were rendered useless.
I was doing an update to my i Phone 4 but now its on recovery mode and it doesn’t work, it say to restore phone for it to work but says that I will lose all my data! You’ll see a graphic on the screen that is the USB connector icon and the i Tunes icon.
This can happen when you attempt to upgrade the firmware on the phone (something we do rather often with Apples constant updates).
Keep in mind, you can’t use the phone whatsoever when it’s in this recovery mode. You can restore the phone (you’ll lose your data), or you can simply turn the device on and off and that can work. Thanks to Salon for this good set of tips: Push the “Home” button on the front and the “Sleep/Wake” button on the top of the i Phone.
Hold both buttons down for a minimum of 15 seconds, or until the device turns off.
I had a friend reach out to me on Facebook in a panic after he somehow had gotten his i Phone 4 into a tizzy. I love hearing about ways to fix issues – especially with an i Phone.
