JA: Got it. We're offering new customers a one-on-one with the same Mac expert for AU$23 instead of AU$70. Anything else you want the Mac Technician to know before I connect you?

Hi there and welcome

It is requiring you to connect it to iTunes on your computer.

Connect it to your computer, open iTunes and tell me what iTunes then says please.

your iphone cant be updated, you must restore it to factory settings
Expert:  Richard replied 11 days ago.

ok, this means it has encountered a serious error, you will need to attempt to factory reset it. It will wipe all data off it and return it to new, but you cannot avoid this.

Choose to do this and tell me the results please.

It depends if they were synched onto iCloud (if this was enabled it) but you will need to see.
