No
Mac Support Specialist: Josh, Mac Support replied 7 months ago

Click here: https://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

The file should start to download automatically then install it.

Open iTunes then connect your iPhone

Make sure you select UPDATE (not restore) when prompted in iTunes.

I do not see a plac on my pic to plug it in?
Mac Support Specialist: Josh, Mac Support replied 7 months ago

If you are on a desktop, it will be on the front or back of the tower.

If it is a laptop, it will be on the left or right hand side.

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
