- Using iTunes to restore iOS devices is part of standard isolation troubleshooting. Restoring your device will delete all data and content, including songs, videos, contacts, photos, and calendar information, and will restore all settings to their factory condition. All the best, Allen.
- BEFORE connecting the phone open iTunes and go to Preferences, Devices tab. Check the box to NOT sync automatically when a device is connected.
- Connect the phone using the Lightning cable to a USB port directly on the computer (not a hub).
- Do not sync the phone.
- Click on the icon, then click Back up now.
The time it takes to back up for the first time depends on the file size being backed up (you can find this from your back up settings) and how fast your Wi-Fi connection is. For example, if the upload speed is around 1 Mbps so 1 GB may take around 2 hrs to upload.
- Backing up an iOS device to iTunes is easy, and much quicker than backing up to iCloud, because the data just goes over the cable that connects your iOS device to your Mac. Some people sync their iOS devices every day; other people never sync them.
- Small files shouldn't take more than a few minutes (or seconds), larger files (1GB for instance) may take 4 or 5 minutes or slightly longer. If you are backing up your whole drive you may be looking at hours for the backup. Another problem, of course, is the speed of the USB connection to the external had drive.
- According to Apple, the time it takes to restore from an iCloud backup will depend on the size of the backup and the speed and reliability of the Wi-Fi connection you are using. But even Apple admits that even with the strongest connection, it might still take 1 to 4 hours to per gigabyte to complete the process.
