Really?  And you know this based on what?  The lack of a specific error message from the OP?

I am assuming
Yes... and as the saying goes, when one assume they make an a$$ out of u and me.
Stop assuming, let the OP provide some more specifics and then some actual troubleshooting can be done.  It's unlikely that your issue and the OP's are related.

    If you're not a developer then you really should not have upgraded.
    I'm unsure how you can fix this as you have already done a back-up on iOS 7 and apple don't support firmware downgrades.

    i have macbook pro   i got it from craiglist, when i was updating the oprating sestem its asking me for sestem unlocking pin? where can i get it from?

    I would recommend wiping the system and reinstalling the OS for any used system. OS X does not have any "unlocking pin" of sorts so this may be from some third-party software on the system. The system does have a "firmware password" option that can be set to prevent booting to alternative boot environments (ie, external hard drives, safe mode, etc), but this will not prevent system updating.

    Then put a SIM in. You cannot activate an iPhone without a compatible Sim.

    The battery will run UP TO 7 hours.
    The run time depends on what you are doing.
    Anything that puts a heavy load on the CPU will reduce the run time.
    There is a fixed amount of energy in a charged battery.
    The faster you take energy out the shorter the run time will be.
    Turn off bluetooth.
    Reduce backlight to as low as is comfortable for you.  I use level 5.
    Watching video uses a lot of energy.

    You may need to rebuild permissions on your user account. To do this,boot to your Recovery partition (holding down the Command and R keys while booting) and open Terminal from the Utilities menu. In Terminal, type:  ‘resetpassword’ (without the ’s), hit return, and select the admin user. You are not going to reset your password. Click on the icon for your Macs hard drive at the top. From the drop down below it select the user account which is having issues. At the bottom of the window, you'll see an area labeled Restore Home Directory Permissions and ACLs. Click the reset button there. The process takes a few minutes. When complete, restart.

  • Does anyone know how to update the software on an iPhone 4 when there is no software update button?!

    Does anyone know how to update the software on an iPhone 4 when there is no software update button?!
    Many thanks.

    Update it from iTunes on a computer as described at the bottom of this article; devices running an iOS version prior to 5.0 can't be updated straight from the device. It will be updated to the newest iOS version supported by the device’s hardware.

  • I tried to update the software for my iPhone 4S. It froze, and now won't turn off, or on, or sync.  Any ideas on how to fix this?

    I tried to update the software for my iPhone 4S, 16 GB to the most recent version (8.1?).  I don't know what I was updating from, because I can't access that, but it was whatever was installed on it (I got it about a year ago, so probably 6.something). 
    It froze, and now won't turn off, or on, or sync with my macbook plus, which is what I have always sync'd it to.  (I backed it up and sync'd it right before I tried to update the software.)
    Since it originally froze almost 3 hours ago, it shows a white screen with the apple on it and a line underneath.  When I try to sync with my laptop, it says it needs me to enter a passcode on the phone, which I can't enter because the screen is frozen.  So I'm unable to access the iPhone portion of iTunes.
    I have tried to turn it off, with no luck.  I have tried rebooting my laptop and syncing, but I still get the same result.
    Does anyone know how to fix this?
    I really wanted to wait to update the software, but I was having internet connectivity issues for the past 3 weeks, and Sprint suggested updating the phone's software.
    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Hi NWL1,
    Thanks for the question. If I understand correctly, the iPhone won't update and is stuck. I would recommend that you read this article, it may be able to help you resolve or isolate the issue.

    Media and apps are not part of the backup. They need to be re-synced from your itunes library or re-downloaded from the store.

You can also resend the email verification if the email address is not verified:
    1. Sign in to My Apple ID to manage your account information.
    2. Click Resend under Primary Email Address.
    3. Verify your changes by following the link in the email you will receive from Apple and signing back in to your account.
