imagesLast week when I was trying to upgrade my iPhone 4 to iOS 6, it automatically struck in restore mode after iOS 6 update attempt. As regular basis I put my iPhone 4 on charge. After downloading and trying to restart, iPhone 4 went into recovery mode. It was unable to boot up, “Connect to iTunes” signal was shown into the screen. After connecting devices to PC/Mac computer and trying to retrieve, the message pops up “The iPhone “iPhone” could not be restored. This device isn’t suitable for the requested build.” or “The iPhone “iPhone” could not be restored. An unknown error occurred”. iOS 6 is being downloaded by the new iTunes for upgrade. My iPhone 4 has lot of photos, text messages, videos, music files, contacts, mails and others are saved. I was just hoping that I do not misplace any data from my iPhone 4 as it was stuck in restore mode after iOS 6 update attempt. The reasons that cause “Recovery Mode” after upgrading to iOS 6 was not cleared to me. And I did not find any solution to manage to recover iPhone 4S, iPhone 4 with iTunes. And I was worried about my whole data.

But there is nothing to worry because now to recover lost or deleted data from iPhone 4  devices there is a complete solution available for Windows system i.e. iPhone Data Recovery. With the help of iPhone Data Recovery software you can easily recover all my data and successfully recover device, all data including photos, documents, and videos will be restored. But if your device cannot be restored, that does not mean all your data are lost. Your data will not be lost, they are in somewhere in your device.
