After trying to update to iOS 9 and dealing with the incredibly frustrating “slide to upgrade” glitch, I contacted apple and they told me the only option to get rid of the glitch was to do a factory reset. I have no backups, so I lost all my photos and important data. I’m super angry because I got screwed over by Apple’s own glitch. Is there any way to recover that lost data? Any trusted and reliable programs? iPhone 5s, iOS 9
When update to iOS 9, I found that quite a few people are encountered with the “Slide to upgrade” problem and Apple usually will ask them to do a factory reset for the situation.
