plug your phone into your computer and it should say within iTunes that a new update is ready. I have ios5 but I didn't manage my apps properly so they've all gone!

All your apps??? Gone??? Gone where????

((((faints at the thought)))))

Plug your iPhone into the computer that you normally synch with. If your iTunes isn't up-to-date, you will be asked to do that first.

(Make sure anything you have on your phone, such as photos/videos, have been saved on to your computer.)

You will automatically be guided through the update. It will take a while, but it should restore everything that was on your phone.

I too have lost all apps, music and content as my iTunes which was fine before the update is now refusing to sync with my iPhone hmm

The idea of icloud is fab and can't wait to be able to use some of the services once I've got my apps/contacts/music back.

Do a back up first.

Then click <update>

Then download cloud for mac or pc

Then register for iCloud (

check if your iTunes is perhaps not finding your library - the music is still on your PC somewhere. You may have to reconnect. I have had this before.

Have you turned all the iCloud buttons to 'on' on your phone? Mine were all set to 'off' - go to settings, and there's an iCloud icon there.

Make sure everything else is updated first, that you have the latest iTunes and OSX updates if you're using a Mac. Takes a long while to update - make sure you don't remove the phone from the sync too early and you should be fine smile

If you've lost apps/music etc. go to iTunes store, and look for 'purchased items' in the list on the right. Click on that, it will ask for account details and you get to re-download everything you had for free. Voila!

It took mine hours so don't start unless you have at least 3 hours. It may not take as long as that, but you cannot stop it once it has started.

Mines finally syncing, it's been going since 9pm last night and still has 60 songs to download but it's getting there.

Can I hijack a little and ask:

do I want to do this?

I know I will have to eventually but it doesn't sound very stable/productive/useful/pleasant at the moment.

I LOVE it. Truly.

One thing that always bugged me was that you get an email and the phone beeps and then you have to unlock and enter password, then go into email app to see who sent you the mail.

Now you glance at the locked screen and see immediately who it is from and can ignore it

And you get FB and Twitter DMs on there too. Need to have a chat with MN if we can have PM notifications...

I wrote a blog post yesterday, go have a look.

I also really like the reader thingy. If you are looking at a webpage, you can switch to reader mode and get rid of ads and pics to make it easier to read.

I already get notifications from Facebook and Twitter... that's not new.

I am now going to switch on notifications for my mail to see what it looks like...

MmeLindor. Fri 14-Oct-11 09:22:22

Yes, but they don't come onto the screen when it is switched off. This is new, it is a little pop up window.

And you can swipe down the screen to get a list - emails and texts, fb messages, twitter dms, notes, appointments - all on one page

Trills Fri 14-Oct-11 09:30:29

You swipe down from the top of the screen to get your recent notifications?

I wonder where they got that idea! wink

Don't bother is my advice. I'm an iPhone veteran, have had one since they came out 4 years ago. Always updated phones and Macs no problem. I spent all of yesterday faffing around with this thing and, despite all the precautions I always take, lost quite a lot of stuff in the process.

Leave it a couple of weeks and see what happens is what I wish I'd done.
