Restore from Backup iTunes iPhones - Missing Items?

Restore from Backup iTunes iPhones - Missing Items?

If you have a new iPhone and will be restoring it from an iTunes backup, remember that the traditional Apple iOS restore wont restore your phone completely. You may not notice right away what your restore didnt bring back to your new iPhone. Be aware and avoid the unnecessary frustrations when you need these features in critical moments.


If you are restoring from an iPhone backup to a new iPhone from scratch, here is what you should remember that wont be carried over.


-Encrypted applications

            Encrypted applications include corporate Exchange email accounts and RSA Secure ID tokens. These items are lept from being restored because of their application security methods. Remember to rebuild your email accounts and request your new RSA SecureID token ahead of time.


-App login information

            Depending on the app, most apps (like banking apps) wont carry your login information over to your phone restore. You will need to manually login to these apps and save credentials to them if you had before.

iOS 9 seems to carry login information over for other apps now like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest.


-WiFi And Bluetooth Network settings

            Saved WiFi networks will likely be lost. Remember to take note of the most common networks you join to and have the passwords at hand when needed. iOS9 seems to be able to remember these now, though.

            Bluetooth pairings will be lost. You will need to re-pair Bluetooth devices you had saved from your previous iPhone. This can be frustrating. Remember most common Bluetooth devices including your car, home stereo, and computer.

  5. VPNs
