Well, I learned something new yesterday!!! I guess that's a good thing.
I've got an iPhone which has been in need of an update on the operating system for some time. For whatever reason, I decided yesterday was the day to do it. Great so far, right?
Well, I probably should've planned for a bit more time. I couldn't do it on my phone and had to do it through itunes on my computer. So far, so good.
Plugged it in, updated it just fine. But then my computer wanted to back up my phone, since I hadn't done that in I don't know how long. Still good so far.
Except that I had a lunch date with an old friend and needed to leave before it was done backing up. So, DUMB ME, I unplugged my phone in order to leave, BEFORE it was finished. Not so smart, apparently.
Phone wouldn't turn on during my lunch. Came home and replugged it in only to find that EVERYTHING had been erased! I mean everything. The computer asked if I wanted to RESTORE to original settings. That means, with NOTHING on it. NO PICTURES (all I really care about on my phone anyway). @#$@#$
Called Apple and was happily advised that because I have icloud and had bought extra storage space (I did something right, finally), everything on my phone was actually backed up on the cloud. WOOHOO. The cloud? Who knew??
It has taken even until this morning to restore everything onto my phone.
Lesson learned, thank you very much.
No need to do the updates, actually.
Back to cleaning up the sewing room space, still.
Love to you all,
