Tips: When You're Aksed for a Update for iPhone Restore

#1. If you restore this iPhone from an iPad backup, settings and iPad-only apps will not be restored.

One of the errors that might appear during the restoration process might be that "If you restore this iPhone from an iPad backup, settings and iPad-only apps will not be restored." Such a problem is often encountered when you want to restore your iPhone apps. It's important to know that only the purchased data and books will be recovered.

#2. Unknown Error Occurred

Unknown error occurred when you try to recover from iTunes. Believe it or not, this problem happens quite a lot, and the best way to deal with it at first is to perform a quick, full computer reboot. Once that is done you need to reconnect all the USB devices via their cable just like they were connected before. While it might seems very easy, this is a good solution and most of the time does the trick. If it doesn't work, then you should think about disabling all the antivirus software as that might interfere with the restoration process. In the end, if this still continues, then trying to use another computer might be the final answer.

#3. Not Enough Space for Restoration

This also happens quite a lot, as most users tend to fill their phone with lots of apps they might not even play, which is really unfortunate to say the least. The solution here is to make sure that all data in the phone is wiped out, in order to provide space in your phone. After that, you should continue the restoration process, ensuring that the phone has free space.

#4. Software Currently Not Available

Fixing is similar to others presented above. You need to connect the phone, disable the antivirus tool and press both the home and power button for 30 seconds in order to enter the device in recovery mode. From this point on the action is very easy, as you just need to follow the instructions and that's it.

#5. Generic Error 14

This error appears when you want to restore after failing an update on your iOS device. The fix for it is to simply look for a broken part, which might be a malfunctioning USB cable or other connection problems.

#6. iPhone Suddenly Unplugged During Restore

Yes, unfortunately this problem tends to happen quite a lot and the best solution is to simply make sure that you boot into recovery mode by pressing the home and power button, then keeping them pressed for 30 seconds. The whole restoration process needs to be performed using iTunes, so make sure you do that as fast as possible.
