I wanted to upload...

I wanted to upload my iTunes music from my lap top to my GF's IPhone S and checked using a current update. Didn't realize it's loading all my IPhone info and afraid of loosing her info. Right now her phone is asking for Apple ID Verification as I tried to shut it down before completion. Shows my screen saver and does ring with my ring tone to her phone number. How can i get out of this dilemma.

Technician's Assistant: When did you last update your iTunes?

Not sure about the iTunes but used a1/6/18 on the Apple.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Software Expert to know before I connect you?

No, I had the songs screen on the laptop so I thought it was ITunes.

does if she has back up

If there is not a backup everything is gone. I worked for Apple as Genius. The guy/gal you would talk to at the store.

Ask Your Own Mac Question

The only way she had a backup is if she also had Find My iPhone turned off on purpose. Because you cannot restore an iPhone with it on and you would have had to turned it off.

Ask Your Own Mac Question

So unless she purposely sign out of Find My iPhone which she would know she did then she did not have a backup.

Ask Your Own Mac Question

Ask her if she has an iCloud account.

I got that.....we just don't know if backed up or not. Also doesn't know if has cloud.... Should I define pinball generation... Think your Great Grandparents .... we're going to the store.

Here. Let me do you one better, dial ‭(866)(###) ###-#### and select option 1. Let them know a former Mac Genius sent you. They will be able to help you no matter what. When finished messages me back, ok?

Thx .... we've got to find out which Grandbaby set up the phone and see if there's back up.

Sounds good! Let me know if you need anything at all. You can keep asking me questions on this thread.

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
