It looks like iOS12 should be available on September 18th. There have been countless articles written about the new features it has, so we won’t delve too deeply into those here, but you can look here, here, here, or here if you would like to find out more.
As with every operating system upgrade, be it Windows, macOS, iOS, Android, or Linux, backing up BEFORE you do the upgrade is the essential first step that not everyone makes. Upgrades in the past few years have gotten a lot more reliable, but there are always cases of unfortunate people running into issues during an upgrade, and without a backup, you could really be putting your data at risk. Data recovery is possible in situations like this, but success is a lot more likely from a hard drive than a smart device. That being the case, make sure you back that iPhone or iPad up sooner rather than later. See our post from before the release of iOS11 for some quick and easy instructions to backup your phone with iTunes.
As always, if you need data recovery, get in touch us today and we’ll do whatever we can to help you!
