I just updated my iphone 4 to iOS6 and now have to restore my phone?  Why

I did the update to iOS 6 and now my phone says i have to restore to factory settings...Why?  Is there any way around this?

It shouldn't be a problem. Restore, and then resynch everything back. You will have backed up photos and such.

    I just updated my iPhone 4 to iOS6 and now my calendar, contacts, notes, etc. are gone.  Is there any way to get that information back?  I thought those things were automatically backed up in the first step of the update process.

    The only restore I can find is from 2010.

  • I just updated my iphone 4 to ios6 and now I can't keep the wifi connection to stay on. I have to keep entering my wifi password when the phone goes to sleep. How do I keep the wifi connection when I wake up the phone?

    I just updated my iphone 4 to ios6 and I can't keep the wifi connection when the phone goes to sleep. I need to keep entering my wifi password when I wake up the phone. How do I keep the wifi on each time I walk into my house without reentering my password?

    What? Do you work for Apple?
    I have been on the phone for Apple since 5:30 Eastern Time today. We are still on the phone with them. It is 10:14 PM. We are going to get a new phone because the ios6 has major problems! The wifi connectivity is a serious problem. Apple is aware of it. More people need to do something about it. I am willing to start a class action suit against them. I have means to an attorney pro bono. If you are having problems using your iphone 4 or 4s with wifi and ios6...I suggest you spend time calling a senior advisor and get a new phone sent to you. They know they messed up but they can't fix it.

    Hi All I need a bit of help, I updated my iphone last night to IOS6 but I have lost SIRI. It pops up but doesnt do anything. Help

    I followed the thread and used the link provided to download iTunes version 10.6.3 (again). The same error message keeps coming up, telling me that I do not have it installed. I tried restarting the computer following the install, but it still won´t acknowledge that 10.6.3 is installed. Any other solutions?

    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.
    If you can't update or restore your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch - Apple Support
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    Have a great day,
    Mario

  • Just updated my iPhone 4S to ISO6 and now the phone will not pair with my car(Lexus ) is this an issue with the car firmware or iOS 6?

    Just updated my 4s to iSo 6 and now the phone does to pair with my Lexus anyone have/solve this issue? Is it a firmware problem with the car?

    Was it pairing before the iOS update?
    If so, delete the pairings in the device and the car, then try again.
    If it was not, the issue is most likely the car.

  • I updated my iphone to the ios6 and now it wont work.

    i updated my iphone to the ios6... and now it wont work at all.
    it wont even turn on, it keeps going back and forth between the black screen and then the apple mark pops up for a few seconds, and then turns back to the black screen again... and that just keeps going on...
    someone please help...

    Seems like ios6 isn't any good for any of their devices. I have an iPhone 4 and recently updated to ios6 and have had all the wifi problems and apps getting hung up on load screens. Restore is your best bet and downgrade if you can back to ios 5.1. If restore doesn't help with a fresh install of ios6 then call every Apple support number you can find and be heard like the 1,000s of other people like us with ios6 problems demanding support. There doesn't seem to be any quick fixes for ios6 other than an update from Apple.

  • I just updated my IPhone 4 5 IOS and now everything is messed up

    Hi everybody : ) Sorry to be meeting this way, but I just updated my IPhone 4 to the new 5IOS software. And now, when trying to sync my phone it is telling me.
    "Iphone -insert name of Iphone here- cannot be synced. The required disk cannot be found."
    I have no idea why it's doing this and I would love to fix it. It's taking more an hour just to get the entire thing to sync and more than once sync to do so. I would love for this to not happen every time I try and sync my phone with new music or photos.
    Also, my downloaded apps are not installed and won't install on to my device. Nor will my Itunes let me update my apps. It keeps telling me that there's an Itunes error.
    Please Help me figure out what's wrong with my phone and how to fix it : /

    The only restore I can find is from 2010.

  • HT1222 i updated my iphone 4 to ios6 and now it doesnt work at all :(

    i updated my iphone 4 to ios6 n then it doesnt start or work at all

    Since you say that you cannot do anything with the iPad at this point you may need to use DFU to restore it. Follow the above instructions about disabling any-virus software and the firewall, then follow these instructions.
    Placing an iPhone into Device Firmware Upgrade (DFU) mode
    DFU mode is not the same as restore mode. DFU mode bypasses the current OS installed. If you are getting errors trying to restore in iTunes, DFU mode is very likely for you.
    1. Open iTunes and connect the iPad to your Mac/PC.
    2. Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
    3. After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPad in recovery mode.
    4. Click OK and Restore your phone.

    I backed up my iphone and updated the software. I now have no apps, music, voice memos.....I was able to get my photos and contacts back. How do I get all the rest of my stuff back?
